17. stabilizing the economy and rebuilding the middle class. All that used to be before the tax cuts on
the wealthy.

Tea baggers are being manipulated to support those who caused our current disaster but who want to blame the government for it all.

16. "I just heard from Standards: we're not allowed to say 'fiscal teabagging.'"
I just wanna know how many other people had to google 'teabagging' to find out why you all are laughing?

29. I didn't even look at the links you provided
But since the inception of the Teabag Movement, one man has come to mind and that's the great AnalRapist, Dr. Tobias Funke.

31. VOTERSTHINGKdotORG uploaded some of the best anti-McCain/Palin vids during the election
And they are still one of the best sources of Pro-Dem anti-GOP vids on YouTube, IMO.

There are some very funny comments being posted on the original upload of this vid on YouTube, too.


BTW, have you been to http://earth2obama.org / yet?

32. Ah yeah
I remember - it just looked a bit iffy some of the comments from the original poster's youtube comments whether there was some anti-obama agenda being pushed so I figured I'd just provide another link. Thanks for clearing it up - I'll edit my previous post if still possible. :hi: Oh and yeah I have been to earth2obama.org but haven't had much time to check it out in depth - yet.

33. The REAL POWERS behind the teabagging parties
What we discovered is that Santellis rant was not at all spontaneous as his alleged fans claim, but rather it was a carefully-planned trigger for the anti-Obama campaign. In PR terms, his February 19th call for a Chicago Tea Party was the launch event of a carefully organized and sophisticated PR campaign, one in which Santelli served as a frontman, using the CNBC airwaves for publicity, for the some of the craziest and sleaziest rightwing oligarch clans this country has ever produced. Namely, the Koch family, the multibilllionaire owners of the largest private corporation in America, and funders of scores of rightwing thinktanks and advocacy groups, from the Cato Institute and Reason Magazine to FreedomWorks. The scion of the Koch family, Fred Koch, was a co-founder of the notorious extremist-rightwing John Birch Society.

37. AH, our turn!
When the "Barack the Magic Negro" song came out it gave the wingers a chance to say "negro" a lot, which they seemed to enjoy.

Now we progs get to talk about "teabagging" for weeks in connection to those same wingers! Karmic symmetry.


And seriously, who doesn't want to talk about the fiscal teabagging we've all been taking lately. :)
