Good Evening, teabagging morons. Please allow me to express my deepest thanks!

Because of YOUR government shutdown, my wife is being furloughed starting tomorrow and ending either when the most childish group of bozos ever to serve in Congress decides to end it's collective temper tantrum, OR when the weakest and most ineffective House Speaker ever decides to stand up to the loons in his caucus and allow a straight up vote to put the government back to work. WOW!

Are you members of the teabagger caucus getting YOUR paychecks on time? We working people are VERY concerned for YOUR well being as we worry about paying our mortgages during your hissy fit!

As we watch the mess of your government shutdown, which is so silly that it makes Newt Gingrich's 2 temper tantrum motivated shutdowns of the 90s look like well reasoned strategies, please allow me to suggest a slogan for your fiasco..."WE BUILT THIS"!

Once again, THANK YOU, teabaggers!

That's my 2 cents, and quite possibly overpriced at that!

They seem more proud of "WE BLEW THIS UP!" or maybe, "WE TORE THIS DOWN!"

I'd go with one of those.

...but I'm just taking the opportunity to take their 2012 convention circle jerk and rub their noses in it.

they'd care about your wife or others being furloughed? In the minds of the average 'Bagger in Congress, what comes first is their own paychecks.

One thing that the teabaggers have been making crystal clear, since even before they WERE teabaggers, is that the word "caring isn't even in their lexicon.

We should all start a support group, but that ain't gonna help with mortgages and food.

My only hope is that the very few sane republicans decide that it's time to stand up to the teabaggers and get this government open again.
