Despicable Tea!

Just when you thought that members of the Tea Party could not possibly make bigger fools out of themselves than they already have, along comes Tucson (Arizona) Tea Party co-founder Trent Humphries. At this point you might be wondering just how any Tea Bagger could upstage the penchant for dressing like George Washington while in public, or be more out of order than bringing loaded weapons to public rallies, or fail to understand that Medicare is a form of socialized medicine. Well, Humphries has managed to do it.

Please sit down and brace yourselves, because Humphries believes that Gabrielle Giffords has herself to blame for getting shot in the head last Saturday. He said the Arizona representative should not have attended her constituent meeting “in full view of the public” if she had security concerns. Humphries stated that if Giffords was truly concerned about the cross-hair symbols placed over her district by Sarah Palin in a political ad, then she should have done more to protect herself. He believes that Giffords’ warning that “there’s consequences to that action (i.e sniper symbols)” were words spoken simply for political gain. Here are Humphries’ exact words:

“It’s political gamesmanship,” he told the Guardian. “The real case is that she [Giffords] had no security whatsoever at this event. So if she lived under a constant fear of being targeted, if she lived under this constant fear of this rhetoric and hatred that was seething, why would she attend an event in full view of the public with no security whatsoever?”

“For all the stuff they accuse [Palin] of, that gun poster has not done a tenth of the damage to the political discourse as what we’re hearing right now.”

Yikes, talk about blaming the victim! The Tea Party and its misguided leadership should be called to account for this atrocious behavior. At the very least, Trent Humphries should be expelled from his office and stripped of his Tea Party membership. Anything less than that will simply confirm that the Tea-Baggers have no soul or conscience.

GO PACKERS!!!

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…
