1. Sadly, the Teapublicans already know their job description... But well played, Democrats!

2. Politicians yukking it up - while we have no jobs

Shit wages that have stagnated for decades

Mandated for-profit insurance payments

A laughable minimum wage

Our safety net programs under attack



But let's laugh it up and have a good time!

6. People do occasionally smile.

And little things like this are tradition for incoming freshmen. As are photos. And setting up their offices.

9. I thinking shaming the Tea Party is constructive.

Yes, the problems you list are huge and should not be disregarded for "a good time." But this is not just some mindless joke. It serves a purpose--as purpose that supports a solution to those problems. By shaming the Tea Party and making it clear it/they are a joke, we help create a receptive atmosphere for our message. Yes, times suck. But we don't need to make them suck even more by being humorless. Humor lifts our spirits and gives us energy, while eviscerating the object of the joke. That is why people say "humor is the best weapon."

11. I agree about humor. We need to keep it even during the tough times.

If it helps relieve the tension on our side from dealing with the asshats, I am okay with it.

Just not sure PUKES can be shamed. IMHO they have no sense of it or a conscience.

12. Well, I guess I should use the word "humiliate." You're right. They have no shame. nt

19. Humor stings where scolds are ignored and laughed off...

Satire and ridicule are good weapons.

8. Such a great point - government healthcare for no one but themselves

I remember when Joe Walsh, one-term teabagger representative compained about not getting his healthcare soon after he won back in 2010. Good riddance to that deadbeat (and hello to Tammy Duckworth!)

14. I'm sorry...

... this is cause to cry, not laugh. See no humor in it. It just rubs salt in our own wounds of repugnant reality. Now, I don't mind all the rest of you getting a laugh. We need to get our laughs where ever we can find them, and often. Luv to all...

15. brilliant!

Humor with a purpose. The best.

Plus, any public humiliation of pukes is good.

Tar and feathers on a rail out of town would also be nice.

21. Sadly, not one teabilly realized the cards were not real.

They are now trying to get more info on how to hook up with the cash.
