Oh God fucking Tim Eyman. The man responsible for the I-695 initiative that sent the ferry system into a spiral. That fuck. :angry:

Those people are embarrassing to this city. Granted, not as obvious or dramatic as Houston...

Do these people not know what "teabagging" means?

I mean really?

These people . . . don't seem impossibly clueless?  I'd be surprised if half of them could define 'missionary position' correctly, much less 'teabagging'.  :harumph:

It's crowds like these (and Glenn Beck actually crying on national TV!) that make me miss the media hoopla over American militias.

These people think the missionary position is their god given duty to convert the world to christianity.

I saw a clip the other day where Anderson Cooper made teh funny. Poorly delivered, but it was a good line:

The guy he was talking with was talking about how the Repubs had lost their united voice, and that they were trying to find their voice.

AC: "Well, it's hard to talk when you're teabagging".
It's symbolic of our struggle against reality.

I wouldn't say he had a "meltdown," and I was expecting to hear that phrase about the thuggery being bellowed out in that clip, not alluded to by Cooper.

Williams makes a good point about how money is being taken from the working class and given to huge corporations, though. I was a bit surprised to hear that angle.

How he ties that into health care reform, I'm not getting. :crazy:

The whole bit about socialism being "rammed down our throats" is also total bullshit.

Corporations are generally supposed to take money from the working class (consumers) and transfer it to the upper class (stockholders).  It's one of the main parts of the reason for corporations existing.  Taking money from the government, or any other source, and transferring it to stockholders is also what a corporation is supposed to do, and the more efficiently (profitably), the better.  Corporations are amoral entities, by design.

If the stockholders are part of the working class, that's called 'communism'.  It's not forbidden, or even necessarily anti-capitalistic, but it's not what corporations are designed to do.  Corporations are supposed to take in money with both hands and give back with the Invisible Hand, if at all.  Society is supposed to regulate this process, if you're a rationalist, or market forces are purely supposed to, if you're an optimistic social darwinist.

But, anyway, the notion that the government is helping corporations are taking money away from the working class is antithetical to the idea that the government is going all commie socialist.  If this guy can explain why health care is somehow more evilly socialist than any other form of federal spending of tax money, then he gets a cookie.  I don't expect he deserves a cookie.

Amusing column here (NY Times) about how the Tea Baggers and GOP are getting screwed by Michael Steele, Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck, et al.  Frank Rich makes a good point of something I only realized a couple of months ago -- the GOP would like to fire Steele but doesn't dare to do it.  They made him chair of the party because he's black (like, you know, Obama), but he turns out to be crazy and evil in ways that don't work for them . . . and they can't get rid of him without looking really, really bad.  Oops.

Palin and the rest scamming the Tea Baggers is kind of automatically funny.  Naturally, a huge percentage of the Baggers are Me Tooers who are loving the bandwagon but really aren't thinking things through very much.  Easy pickings.  I'm laughing at the Tea Party Convention charging $560 a ticket.  The best part is that the movement is screwed over by it whether every ticket sells or no one shows up.

Sarah Palin's personally endorsed candidates are 0-5 so far this month.

Nice.

Of course, she did only the tiniest bit to help most of them -- a single speech, a robocall message, a Facebook endorsement.  I'm sure she was largely just keeping her name out there, but talk about the moose kiss of death.

I almost went with 'moose around their necks' as a kind of pun / Ancient Mariner reference, but it just seemed too labored.
