Teablogging for Teabagging Day

teabagdems

Teabagging Day, April 15th, is almost upon us *snerk* — staring us right in the face, as it were.

Okay, settle down — there’s nothing weird or wrong with conservatives doing a little teabagging, provided it doesn’t go to their heads… err… Teabagging Parties are a great opportunity for them to get together, hang loose, and discuss their issues face to, um –

Ahhh, nevermind, I got nothin’ — watch Rachel:

On a more serious note, Andrew Sullivan gets the last word:

As a fiscal conservative who actually believed in those principles when the Republicans were in power, I guess I should be happy at this phenomenon. And I would be if it had any intellectual honesty, any positive proposals, and any recognizable point. What it looks like to me is some kind of amorphous, generalized rage on the part of those who were used to running the country and now don’t feel part of the culture at all. But the only word for that is: tantrum.

These are not tea-parties. They are tea-tantrums. And the adolescent, unserious hysteria is a function not of a movement regrouping and refinding itself. It’s a function of a movement’s intellectual collapse and a party’s fast-accelerating nervous breakdown.

    I’m ashamed that I laughed so hard at such an obvious joke.

    Oh, I had a ball. (Yes, I stole that from somewhere.)

    JJ, Rachel has a follow-up on a slogan coined by the conservative National Organization for Marriage, who are starting a campaign called Two Million for Marriage — except they want you to call it 2M4M. Rachel advises people to google M4M, and then she says, “Maybe these folks should just join up with the teabaggers.”

    David Vitter — ugh. Should not think about David Vitter on empty stomach.

    Oh, I had a ball.

    Oh, why didn’t I think of that! “… a great opportunity for conservatives to hang loose and have a ball… or two…” :lol:

    Hahahaha, “2M4M” is “Two men for marriage” now. Great move on someone’s part, grabbing the domain right out from under the cretins.
