GOP pays respects at Teabaggers Movie premiere

The Teabagger documentary movie — “Tea Party:  The Documentary Film” ($18.95) — had its long-awaited premiere last night.

As if to dispel any vague, lingering doubts that the teabaggers are taking over the GOP, Republican lawmakers dispatched representatives to the event to pay their respects and genuflect before their new teabagging overlords:

…The stars of the film relaxed and talked with former House Majority Leader and FreedomWorks Chairman Dick Armey and Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.). Rep. Joe Wilson (R-S.C.) handed out business cards to a steady stream of well-wishers. All of the guests made their way into the auditorium on the FreedomWorks version of a red carpet — a strip of green astroturf.  […]

Two more members of Congress, Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) and Rep. Tom Price (R-Ga.), joined the proceedings to pay tribute to the activists who organized the 9/12 “taxpayer march on Washington,” which drew an estimated 60,000 people to the Capitol to protest the Democrats’ economic agenda.

After the initial bowing, scraping, whimpering, nut-licking and throat-offering, the GOPers ranneth over with frothing praise for the teabaggers, particularly Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC), who foamed:

“The only reason we don’t have national health care right now is you — is the people outside of Washington,” DeMint told a gathering of tea party activists gathered Wednesday night in Washington for the premiere of a documentary about the movement.

Readers in the Great White Northosphere couldn’t be blamed for having a little trouble wrapping their be-tuqued heads around DeMint’s statement, which roughly translates to…

THANK GOD, we were *this* close to the unthinkable, horrific, nightmarish catastrophe of… *gasp!*…

…National Health Care?

Huh?  What?  EH??

But never mind that, because reviews of “Teabaggers: The Movie” are in and they are tub-thumpingly  enthusiastic:

    Bullshit, the only reason they don’t have national healthcare in the US is because of the people inside DC, including the Blue Cross and other assorted corporately owned Democrats. Fuckers.

    “The only reason we don’t have national health care right now is you.”

    Only the insane and truly delusional think this statement is a compliment.

    I thought he was levying an accusation at them at first, not a compliment. What a fucked up state you have to be in to believe that to be a compliment or to pay it as one.

    Like wtf??? When did helping your fellow man become the bad thing? Behold the modern face of a “Christian Nation”.

    Dr.Prole – It never ceases to amaze me that the teabaggers don’t get that, even though it’s right in front of their faces. Dick Armey? Hello?

    Welcome to the New Dumb.

  6. 6 Dr. Prole Friday, December 4, 2009 at 10:42 am

    Well Dick Armey has done a bang-up job on assembling himself a army of dicks.

    Srsly. What kind of parents did that man have? Dick Armey?! No wonder he’s so fucking evil.

    Antisocial – Isn’t that bizarre?? I had to do a doubletake. How anyone could think that’s a *good* thing is beyond me.

    “Thanks to you, there are still millions of uninsured, 120 people dying a day because they have no health insurance, and as an added bonus, the insurance companies are still free to fuck everyone with impunity…”

    “YAY US!!!”

    Huh!??!??

    I thought he was levying an accusation at them at first, not a compliment.

    Not in the Upsy-downsy inside-outsy teabagger world, which is starting to look like Bizarro World where everything bad is good, and everything good is bad.

    JAB – How can you stand it? Seriously.

    It’s hard enough to deal with the Stoopid when it’s just *there* and doesn’t have any real-world impact, at least it’s good ridicule material. But what you guys are going through right now… 😯

    Dr.Prole – Dick Armey is an archetypal corporate whore. While his teabaggers rail against immigration, he lobbies for it. What more can be said?

    Believe me, JJ. There are days where I say to myself, “You know, Canada’s looking really good right now…”

    Those days have been getting more frequent lately…

    J.A.B. – I lol’d. Then I stopped. Eleventy-one was a highlight 🙂
