DC Metro should have had stewardesses serving Complimentary Cheetos and Dr. Pepper

Apparently the teabaggers are cranky that they didn’t get the level of service they feel entitled to from DC Metro, the government-run, socialist ACORN fascist death panel transit system they were taking to the Teabaggers Parade, to protest government-run, socialist ACORN fascist death panel health care (NOT Scary Negroes in the White House, like everyone says):

Protesters who attended Saturday’s Tea Party rally in Washington found a new reason to be upset: Apparently they are unhappy with the level of service provided by the subway system.

Rep. Kevin Brady asked for an explanation of why the government-run subway system didn’t, in his view, adequately prepare for this past weekend’s rally to protest government spending and government services.

Brady vowed to demand answers for this lapse in service… no, really:

METRO did not prepare for ..._1253254539544

You go girl.  People couldn’t get on you say?  Funny, because this ridership report shows that the transit system wasn’t that much busier than the same day of the year before:Metro - Rail - Disruption Reports - Daily Service Information_1253256267114

…74,854 people busier, to be exact:  approximately the same number of Teabaggers that the fire department estimated took part in the parade.   The number that wingnuts say is a low by a factor of 20, courtesy of the liberal media.  Coincidence??

Judging by the average Teabagger BMI, if people “couldn’t get on” it was probably because they couldn’t get through the doors.

    When HR3288, which included 150 million for emergency funding for the DCMetro, Brady, naturally, voted against it. He also voted against the ARRA, which included funds for public transit.

    Yeah, he’s a hypocrite, the sky is blue, bears shit in the woods, etc..

    Whooee! Good catch in the irony department. Don’t like public option transit? Take a taxi… or a limo… drive yer own car… walk… crawl. How ’bout sedan chairs with African-Americans carryin’ the teabaggin’ whiners? Rickshaws, maybe?

    Xero – What a surprise! NOT.

    I read somewhere that the lights went out on a metro train full of teabaggers (not an unusual event on any public rail system — it happens all the time on the subway in T.O. and the Skytrain in Van). The teabaggers apparently started shrieking that it was an “Obama conspiracy” of some kind 🙄

  4. 4 JJ Friday, September 18, 2009 at 8:26 am

    JimBobby – Yeah, I don’t understand why these people weren’t driving their own cars if they’re so determined to keep “public options” out of their lives… of course that would mean using the government-run socialist ACORN fascist death panel ROADS…

    The lights went out on a Metro train carrying teabaggers.

    They’re a bunch of dimbulbs anyway, so what else would
    you expect?

    —-

    All those teabaggers arrived at the Mall from different
    directions and the Metro would have been able to handle
    their numbers quite satisfactorily given that their number
    was in the 70+thousands and the number of people able
    to fill RFK stadium is about the same–I believe.
    There are two Metro lines that serve the stadium and
    it’s a short walk from other lines. The Mall, on the
    other hand, has 4 lines serving it.

    Crybabies, the lot of them!

    I wonder how many of those hicks waited for the escalator to stop before they could step on it?

    This from Atrios almost made me snort my iced tea:

    This is also about people not from cities seeing cities – especially DC – as big urban theme parks. The monorail ride broke down.

    😆 😆 😆 😆 😆

  8. 8 Bina Friday, September 18, 2009 at 11:29 am

    Wow, Teh Stoopid is just combustin’ all over teh place. 😆

    BTW, the U2 concert in Toronto the other night was 60,000 people. The TTC handled it just fine.

    Suck it, teabags!

  9. 9 Torontonian Friday, September 18, 2009 at 12:51 pm

    @Bina

    Actually, there was more than the U2 concert. There was also a hockey game and that probably added 15- to 20- thousand to the mix.

    And the Red Rocket works fine.

    Irony is that the Washington DC Metro has many more miles of track and many more cars yet the TTC handles large events
    wonderfully. The Santa Claus parade, Gay Pride parade and
    “triple headers” (simultaneous events at the convention
    centre, the Skydome and the Air Canada Centre) with no
    difficulty.

    There have also been triple headers during the time
    of the Canadian National Exhibition. That should add
    even more to the passenger requirements.

    All in a day’s work for the TTC.

    And just think, if the US had this kind of public-oriented government, they could have transit that works in Washington, too!

    (Not that the teabags would be smart enough to appreciate…)

  11. 11 JJ Friday, September 18, 2009 at 6:01 pm

    Torontonian – I wish I could remember where I read about that “lights-out” moment, maybe Think Progress — anyway, it was pretty hilarious. Just visualize it: the lights go out momentarily in a car load of fat fucking dumb teabaggers, and they all start screaming and shrieking about Obama trying to keep them from getting to the Teabaggers March. Oh fuck 😆 😆 If I’d been on that train I would have been in tears from laughing so hard.

    Obviously the DC metro would have been prepared for a bigger crowd that day — even the White House put out some kind of notice about it, and said “maybe 2 million” (which is probably where the baggers get the number they’re clinging to). If anything DC metro was probably over-prepared, anticipating more than actually showed up.

    They just didn’t have stewardesses serving Twinkies!!!

    I wonder how many of those hicks waited for the escalator to stop before they could step on it?

    I hate to be bitchy (no, really), but by the looks of the average bagger, I’d say more probably got on flights of stairs and stood there motionless, waiting to be carried effortlessly to the top. What a surprise when the stairs didn’t move.

    Oh man, that reminds me of when I was in Cancun and I went to Chichen Itza. People were standing at the bottom of the pyramid, looking around going “Where’s the escalator??” I kid you not!!! I couldn’t stop laughing.

  13. 13 JJ Friday, September 18, 2009 at 6:20 pm

    JAB – “The Monorail Ride” — you know, there’s a lot of truth to that. To some rural people, the city really is like a big fantasy park (fun but vaguely evil), that they regard with fascination and suspicion, confusion and guilt.

    BTW, the U2 concert in Toronto the other night was 60,000 people. The TTC handled it just fine.

    I wonder if that was held in the same arena where I saw that big Who concert? 72,000 people and I think it was full to capacity.

    The Red Rocket (TTC) is always well prepared for these big events, as Torontonian pointed out — which is also why I’m pretty sure the Washington transit system would have been likewise prepared.

  15. 15 Bruce Friday, September 18, 2009 at 7:23 pm

    JJ, sadly, I’m not surprised. I was there the last year people were allowed to climb the pyramid, it’s off limits now, problem solved.

  16. 16 JJ Friday, September 18, 2009 at 7:58 pm

    Bruce – It’s off limits now? Aw, too bad, it was so cool! Those stairs were killer but they were a great workout. I felt like Rocky when I got to the top! 😯

  17. 17 Bina Saturday, September 19, 2009 at 9:40 am

    JJ, it was held at the Air Canada Centre (formerly the Skydome). The roof was open, according to the newsdudes.

    (I’ll bet the reason they closed that pyramid is because the stones were crumbling under all the weight.)

  18. 18 Frank Frink Saturday, September 19, 2009 at 3:11 pm

    Bina, ACC & Skydome are two separate buildings. I think you meant to say “the Rogers Centre (formerly Skydome).”

  19. 19 Bina Saturday, September 19, 2009 at 3:36 pm

    Mea culpa. It’s so hard to keep up with all these name changes. (facepalm)

    These tea-bagging retards haven’t thought a critical thought in their life. There is no possible way that they could have been intellectually honest and arrived at the DC mall to protest the government and socialism.

    1. As so clearly pointed out, the subway is a tool of death panel socialists

    2. The roads that they could have driven on (and that some used taxi’s on) are also an evil plot by the socialist hordes, paid for by their blood, sweat, and ignorant tears (well, actually, they resident’s of DC’s tax money).

    3. If they so chose to walk, the side walk are also paid for by the horrors of the ACORN NAZI FASCIST plans of taxes.

    4. The area where they went to protest was also a public institution (sorry, running out of euphemisms for socialism, help?). Shouldn’t they have planned their protest at a good ‘ol capitalist institution, like Bush’s ranch? I’m sure he would have been accommodating to the party base that got him elected President of American twice?


Wait. What?
