I have a 2012 calandar called "Strange Brew" that is a teabagger...

...stupid quote or fact every day.

In and of itself, it's nothing special except for the fact that it reflects a pattern that has somewhat bothered me since the rise of the teabagger movement. A disproportionately large percentage of the quotes are from christine o'donnell and sharon angel. I found it somewhat disturbing that after the disaster of the 2010 election, there were liberal/progressive people who were whooping and hollaring in glory that these 2 numbskulls weren't elected. They were missing the point that this election was a horrible day for America.

While o'donnell and angel are certainly idiots who seem compelled to give Letterman and other late night comedians an endless supply of material, I'm concerned about a bigger picture.

I wonder if sometimes people like o'donnell are set up by the other side as the easy targets so that some of the other equally malignant teabagger candidates and office holders can fly a little lower on the radar. One obvious example is our loud mouthed teabagger governor, paul lepage, up here in Maine who is in office on the strength of his resounding 38% of the 2010 vote.

I certainly think that the baggers should be held up to as much ridicule and derision as possible. I believe that it was Mark Twain who said something to the effect that against a wave of laughter, no tyrany can stand. I think that the republicans under nixon and the ones who propped up geroge w moron understood this. I think it was one of the reasons that they equated any attempt to lampoon or satirize or make fun of these presidents with treason. I would like to see us spread the wealth of laughter at ALL of the teabagger candidates and office holders. After all, Aren't they really jokes that write themselves with their own stupidity?

We certainly have enough tubes in the internet to spread it around. We can "pick" on limbogger and his ilk all the time!

Just a thought that i'm putting out there. It's my 2 cents and possibly overpriced at that!

PEACE!

3. A morning self kick.

I just want to run this up the flagpole for the AM.

Some may salute, some may pee on the flagpole.

Either way, it;s all good as the kids would say.

PEACE!
