DumbDumb……me want GumGum…

D.C.Daily

I have, of late, looked at dozens of clips of tea party goers; and read hundreds of signs, proudly held aloft, at their events; and listened to their litany of grievances as expressed on the local news and…felt the hatred coming off their bodies in waves and been utterly amazed by the slack-jawed vapidity of some of my fellow Americans. Question….is all the stuff  I’ve been seeing, hearing and reading carefully selected by tea party opponents…? I mean, I’m not using a special, bleeding heart browser…just the usual googling…clicking on videos, images and websites, regardless of their apparent partisanship, one way or t’other…and I haven’t come across anyone yet that you would voluntarily splash around in the communal (gene) pool with…or…or (loud sigh) do I mistake myself…and are these stolid citizens representative of the very finest America has to offer..? Are these staunch defenders of the faith really the cream of the genetically modified crop. Hammity, Blechh, Flush and the Fox-Box, all seem to think so…they say that these tea baggers are the salt of the earth and deserve our undying support and gratitude for their fearless assault on the forces of darkness that are currently occupying the White House and a majority of the seats in Congress…This is the kind of thing that could make rational observers feel as if they’re totally losing their minds…the real problem is that this movement has far more in common with the tea party overseen by the Mad Hatter than the one that took place in Boston Harbor…let’s compare them, shall we..? First, the Bash at Griffin’s Wharf, December 16th 1773…it was about rejecting taxation without representation…it was about throwing off the oppressive yoke of a foreign potentate…whereas, the current tea party is about bitching because of financial woes brought about by a bunch of greedy bastards that these self-same idiots voted into office…now, we call a person who sees something that’s white and calls it black, delusional, and that kind of madness is more of the Mad Hatter variety, than the righteous anger expressed by disgruntled Bostonians towards the government of King George. How about a few quotes from the two groups; first, a Whig of yore (Samuel Adams, to be precise): “No people will tamely surrender their Liberties, nor can any be easily subdued, when knowledge is diffused….On the Contrary, when People are universally ignorant… they will sink under their own weight without the Aid of Foreign Invaders”…hmmm, “universally ignorant”..? Try these tasty bon mots from the wig(ged out) followers of the Fox, who proudly raise their “Made in America” placards from coast to coast lately… If You Don’t Understand This Protest, You Must Have Attended Government Schools (I guess that means College of William and Mary, Georgia Tech, UCLA, UC Berkeley, University of Michigan, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, UConn and all the other crappy state-sponsored universities that are…everywhere… you look) or how about; MODERATE REPUBLICANS Follow Specter’s Lead – Don’t Let the Door Hit You on the Way Out (now that one has my complete support); You Cannot Help the Poor by Destroying the Rich (or its hackneyed doppelganger) Don’t Expect to Build Up the Weak by Pulling Down the Strong ..Calvin Coolidge.(well, he’s my personal hero..! [but, fortunately, for every living American today... FDR was not a fan]); God, Guts, and Guns Bought Our Freedom and Is Needed to Keep It (now you’re talking…shades of Dubya’s syntax) and finally; picture an obnoxiously loud, orca-fat, foulmouthed, racist moron, farting and belching as he lowers his brewsky, to facilitate the heroic hoisting of this hand-scrawled beauty…….. I AM SPARTACUS! (‘nuff said.)

    Well Dick…… if that is your real name and not slang for a body part…
    Living within miles of Bob Jones University, I see the Tea Party movement up front and personal. My part of the world is not only the buckle of the Bible Belt but the zipper of the Tea Part movement.
    We have a candidate for Governor pulling ahead in the Republican polls since her endorsement by Sarah Palin which really makes us lefties smile from ear to ear because she is the Jessie Jackson of the Republican Party here! I don’t think we can top the current Governor, Mark Sanford (Don’t cry for me Argentina), as being the most arrogant, hateful, poster boy for the modern day plantation owners but she is equally qualified as a real nut ball!
    The reason for the overwhelming support of the Tea Bag movement here is lack of education. SC prides itself in being first in everything bad and 50th in everything good. Our motto should be “Keep ‘um dumb and down on the farm= cheap labor” That’s our cry for bringing in manufacturing like BMW and now Boeing’s plant that will build the new super liner…… WTF!
    Getting back to the point….. I’ve never seen so many people frustrated over things that were caused by folks that they supported in the past now ready to support those same folks in cleaning it up. That really doesn’t have as much to do with education as to muddling the gene pool! Either way…. we are stuck in a perpetual cluster fuck of ignoramuses and Bible thumpers although I am a native and have a few lefties that join me here in the Palmetto State. One repub candidate claims he will protect the ‘Sovereignty’ of SC if elected! Succession possibly? Every Republican candidate running commercials here state they will fight the Obama socialists and promote incentives for businesses and send the Mexicans home…… (unless they are working for peanuts in one of their factories).
    “I am Spartacus”? How ’bout, “Give me liberty or give me Budweiser!” How ’bout, “I got mine, you get yours!”

    dear “mole” (if that is in fact your real name and not just slang for something that you should have looked at),
    What a delight to see such wit and intelligence flowering amidst the rich compost that is the Carolina Piedmont..!!! I’m sure that your friends and neighbors are thrilled with the sweet scent of you, as you pass by, instead of the usual smell of manure that is characteristic of the “True Patriots” who abound in your neck of the woods…stay strong, dear fellow, in the face of adversity, and know, at least, that this is one Dick, that is on your side…
