Tea Party Turning Tepid?

Is the Tea Party nothing more than a passing fad? Is the group of misinformed, angry, racist illiterates in the process of evaporating? Well, at least one Tea-Bagger survivor believes so.

CNN reports that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is predicting the demise of the Tea Party movement. “The Tea Party was born because of the economy,” Reid said in an interview on NBC‘s “Meet the Press” set to air Sunday. “The economy is probably the worst it’s ever been except for maybe the great depression. The Tea Party will disappear as soon as the economy gets better and the economy’s getting better all the time.”

Harry Reid of course, speaks from experience. You will remember that the Nevada Democrat won reelection in November against Sharron “2nd Amendment Remedies” Angle, a Tea Party-backed Republican candidate. Let’s hope that his prediction is correct. Politics can be dirty enough without the injection of a bunch of old, white, gun-toting, costumed vigilantes. Honestly, how can anyone that runs around dressed like George Washington be taken seriously?

TEA BAG PARTY

(sung to the Ricky Nelson song “Garden Party”)

I went to a Tea Bag party hoping to make some brand new friends
But they became my enemies, those right wing racist men
When I got to the Tea Bag party, they all looked the same
That really surprised me, and no one had a brain

But its all right now, I learned my lesson well
You see, ya can’t please everyone, so ya got to please yourself

Crazies there from miles around, mostly with white hair
Locals brought their shotguns, there was hatred in the air
‘n’ over in the corner, not to my surprise
Sarah Palin sportin’ F-me pumps while just winking her eyes

But its all right now, I learned my lesson well
You see, ya can’t please everyone, so they can go to hell

Lot-in-dah-dah-dah, lot-in-dah-dah-dah

Told them they were so wrong, Glenn Beck is insane
Drill Baby, Drill’s stupid,  and Palin is to blame
I said Rand Paul is crazy too, best not drink his tea
Then I told them things about Michele Bachmann they would not believe

But its all right now, I learned my lesson well
You see, ya can’t please everyone, so they can go to hell

Lot-dah-dah-dah (lot-dah-dah-dah)
Lot-in-dah-dah-dah

Someone opened up a closet door and donned a white pointy hood
Punching his railroad ticket to Hell and just the way he should
If you’re goin’ to a Tea Bag party, I wish you a lotta luck
Bring a misspelled sign, use racist slang and drive a pick-up truck

But its all right now, I learned my lesson well
You see, ya can’t please everyone, so ya got to please yourself

Lot-dah-dah-dah (lot-dah-dah-dah)
Lot-in-dah-dah-dah

But its all right now, I learned my lesson well
You see, ya can’t please everyone, so ya got to please yourself

  1. The Astroturf teabagger scam will end when it ceases to serve the interests of the wealthy and corporate powers that are orchestrating it.

    • You are exactly right. The naive Tea-Baggers were unwittingly co-opted by the mainstream affluent and corporate special interests that were only trying to further their own interests and not those of the American people at large.

    • Exactly, and now they are “shocked, shocked to find that promises are not being kept in this establishment!” Dupes.

  2. Punk’d

    The Tea Party is a hoax (marketing campaign) pushed by Fox News Fat Cats to get abused right-wingers excited about voting Republican. Anti-elitists skeptical of politicians, angry culture warriors, militia types, religious fundies, conspiracy theorists, quasi-libertarians, and fiscal conservatives were all goaded into voting for an extension of the Bush tax cuts for the rich.

    It’s a passing fad to the extent that these douchebags slowly realize they’ve been had!
