Tired of Tea

I was just reminded that the tea bag protesters are still claiming a great victory. It reminded me of something I read before the tax day protests:

The Weird Contradictions of the Tea Bag Revolution

by Bob Cesca

"It turns out that that the tea baggers, led in part by Michelle Malkin, Glenn Reynolds and the Coward Rick Santelli, are politically more in line with the tax policies of King George than the views of the Sons of Liberty and the colonial patriots. The tax baggers emulating a protest against a corporate tax cut -- but, oddly, in support of tax cuts for the rich and corporations. Furthermore, King George was against a corporate bailout loan. And so are the tea baggers. And I don't think it'd be a stretch to suggest that many of the tea baggers are recipients of the president's middle class tax cut.

...Perhaps it's time to quietly abandon the whole tea bag thing."

I highly recommend this enlightening article...maybe the tea baggers should have checked it out before showing up with all their crazy signs:

Blogging is such fun. It makes us feel so very important. Yet it seldom has anything to do with real life.

So true, Heather Ann.

I think the whole "teabag" thing wasn't so much any kind of coherent protest as it was just a way for disgruntled so-called "conservatives" to express their dislike of Obama.

For those people, it's not about policy, it's about identity.

Glad to see you're blogging again!

Thanks Dade! It has been a while...Real Life has been keepin' me pretty busy!

As for my dear Anonymous friend, thanks for stoppin' by. If I got some facts wrong, or you disagree with my logic feel free to point out where, but if you don't have anything to actually say, then maybe you shouldn't waste any more of your real time surfing the blogosphere.
