Food Fight Breaks Out At Tea Party

Do any of you remember that hilarious scene from the brilliant film Monty Python’s Life of Brian wherein the members of “The Peoples Front of Judea” attempt to distinguish themselves from “The Judean Peoples Front” and “The Popular Front of Judea”? If not, please watch this clip before reading the rest of this post. While doing so, simply substitute “Obama” for the the “Romans” and any branch of the “Tea Party” for the various “Peoples Fronts”:

Hilarious, right? Sound familiar? Well the Tea Party movement of today is just as confused and belligerent as any group portrayed in that film. CNN reports that a faction of Tea-Baggers known as “Tea Party Nation” has sent a letter of complaint signed by approximately 150 other movement leaders to Republican legislators in response to another letter sent to the legislators by a Tea Party faction known as “GOProud”. “Tea Party Nation” is angered that “GOProud” sent its letter (signed by 17 other Tea Party activist leaders) to top Republican legislators which called for congressional Republicans to deal with fiscal issues right away rather than social issues.

The letter of complaint by “Tea Party Nation” states, “Last Monday, a small group of non-Tea Party, non-conservatives, released a letter, trying to claim leadership of the Tea Party Movement and purporting to tell you what the Tea Party movement wants.” The “Tea Party Nation” argues that “GOProud” is not now, nor has it ever been, a part of the Tea Party movement.

Immediately after “Tea Party Nation” sent its letter of complaint, “GOProud” responded by saying,

“A letter signed mostly by members of Tea Party groups rather than leaders of Tea Party groups seems like an awfully cheap way to try to make it look like you have a lot of signatories. I mean if we asked for anyone associated with the Tea Party movement to sign our letter we could have 5 times that in 24 hours.”

After witnessing this type of nonsensical infighting, does anybody out there still believe that the Tea-Baggers are a serious political movement bound by a common ideology and unity of interest? If so, would you please inform the “Tea Party Nation”, “GOProud”, “The Tea Party Express”, “The Tea Party Patriots” and the “Tea Party Caucus”? Because right now their actions are not helping their public perception. They look downright silly.

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT

Yours truly has been selected  by the station’s staff (from over 200 entries) to be one of 10 finalists for a position with the station as a “liberal” blogger.

Like Bristol, I lack talent but with all of you voting for me, I may be able to pull-off an upset win. I offer my eternal gratitude if you loyal Rocketeers will visit the WRKO website (Here) and vote for wait…wait…here comes the spoiler…”Kevin McCarthy”. Looks like I’ve now been officially outed.

IT’S OUR TEA PARTY

(sung to the Lesley Gore song “It’s My Party”)

It’s our tea party, and we’ll cry if we want to
Lie if we want to, die if we want to
You would cry too if you were in our zoo

Nobody knows just what planet we’re from
We have all lost our minds
But we will follow the plan
And misspell all of our signs

It’s our tea party, and we’ll cry if we want to
Lie if we want to, die if we want to
You would cry too if you looked like we do

Playin’ the race card because we’re all white
Swastikas define our style
When Glenn Beck’s eyes get teary
That just makes all of us smile

It’s our tea party, and we’ll cry if we want to
Lie if we want to, die if we want to
You would cry too if you were in our zoo

(misspelled sign making break)

Our Sarah Palin behaves just like a whore
She’s a mean ding-a-ling
She tells us nothing but lies
We believe everything

It’s our tea party, and we’ll cry if we want to
Lie if we want to, die if we want to
You would cry too if you looked like we do

Oh, It’s our tea party, and we’ll cry if we want to
Lie if we want to, die if we want to
You would cry too if you were in our zoo

Oh, It’s our tea party, and we’ll cry if we want to
Lie if we want to, die if we want to…

  1. Every time is see clips from that movie, I get distracted and reminded of an evening in college that involved more bottles of wine than dinner guests. It makes me laugh every time. Thanks for cheering me up with that.

    No need to write any letters! Republicans are focusing furiously on fiscal issues, desperately promoting their “Tax cuts theology”: extending the Bush tax cuts for the rich increases government revenue thereby reducing the deficits caused by the previous round of tax cuts.

    Social issues are merely a consolation prize for the gutting- God willing- of Social Security and Medicare. Those godless gays have some nerve, trying to destroying the sanctity of marriage! And, no, they can’t go to Afghanistan!
