Tepid Tea-Baggers Cancel Convention

Remember all that talk last year about the massive grassroots Tea Party movement? Now it appears to have been all smoke and mirrors.

Dick Armey and all those corporate sponsors insisted that the Tea Party was a populist movement of the people, for the people and by the people. They told us that there was no orchestrated big-business and lobbyist backing.The movement would continue to grow exponentially, they told us, because of the sheer attractiveness of its message of small government and little regulation. The Tea Party was, in essence, the movement of the future which would shape American politics.

Flash forward to the present. It has now been established that the Tea Party movement has been funded by big-business and DC lobbyists. All of those older, white Medicare-loving Tea-Baggers were recruited, fed and bussed to Tea Party rallies all over the nation by corporate sponsors and wealthy right-wing PACs. These pawns were not driven by a well informed desire to change the face of American politics. They were driven by corporate-owned bus chauffeurs and the opportunity for a free meal. In short, the Tea-Baggers were duped.

Now they have rebelled. How? They simply stopped believing in their false cause and have begun to fade into the mists of history. It is now a truly rare occasion to see some poor soul dressed like George Washington and carrying a misspelled sign. Tea-Baggers are no longer a feature on the nightly news. Not even on the Teapublican propaganda network known as Fox News. You would have been hard pressed to find a single Tea-Bagger at any congressional town hall meetings this summer. The Tea-Baggers have taken their tri-corn hats and gone home.

But that is not all. Now the Tea Party has cancelled its annual convention. The Minnesota Independent reports as follows:

“Organizers for the Freedom Jamboree, billed as the national tea party straw poll convention, announced on Wednesday that the event has been canceled due to low attendance. The conference had pulled in two of Minnesota most controversial figures, presidential candidate Michele Bachmann and rightwing preacher Bradlee Dean. It was also being organized by Iowa’s Bob Vander Plaats, whose organization, The Family Leader, sparked an uproar in the state after it released a presidential pledge on marriage.

“Everything was set up,” said William Temple, one of the organizers, told the Kansas City Star. “It was just the tea parties themselves weren’t prepared to spend the money to travel and bring their families.”

Roll Call notes that the organizers also had subpar fundraising in addition to low attendance, and it’s the second tea party convention in two years to be canceled because of low attendance.

Along with Bachmann and Dean, presidential candidate Rick Santorum had also accepted an invitation to the jamboree, which was scheduled for the last weekend in September.”

So, the Tea-Baggers “weren’t prepared to spend the money to travel and bring their families”. They were happy to travel and bring their families when Dick Armey and co. were footing the bill. What gives? Here’s what: The Tea-Baggers are a bunch of freeloading bargain-hunters that have virtually no commitment to their alleged cause.

Ahh, Tea Party we hardly knew ye!

TEA PARTY

(sung to the J. Geils Band song “House Party”)

They’re staring at the ceilin’
They’re droolin’ on the floor
Baggers everywhere comin’ through the door
They don’t have a clue what’s goin’ on
Scott Brown shedding his pants before long
They love when Glenn Beck cries
Like a baby, tears flowin’ from his eyes
They all watch him on the tube
He’s their favorite Fox News boob

They’re lovin’ the Tea Party
They’re lovin’ the Tea Party
They’re lovin’ the Tea Party
They’re lovin’ the Tea Party
They’re lovin’ the Tea Party
They’re lovin’ the Tea Party
Tea-Baggers love a Tea Party!

Palin’s crazy and she has no soul
Spitting bile right from her pie-hole
With no clue, she’s koo-koo
Should have gone to better schools
She was a pregnant bride
Then that lady quit her job last July
She broke water on the move
That’s a birth that she can’t prove

They’re lovin’ the Tea Party
They’re lovin’ the Tea Party
They’re lovin’ the Tea Party
They’re lovin’ the Tea Party
They’re lovin’ the Tea Party
They’re lovin’ the Tea Party

Tea-Baggers love a Tea Party!

(misspelled sign-making break)

They go on a bus ride
Guys and ladies congregate outside
Tea-Baggers are on the move
A bunch of slime with something to prove

They’re lovin’ the Tea Party
They’re lovin’ the Tea Party
They’re lovin’ the Tea Party
They’re lovin’ the Tea Party
They’re lovin’ the Tea Party
They’re lovin’ the Tea Party
Tea-Baggers love a Tea Party!

They just move it, groove it
Baby, then they lose it
They just roll it, stroll it
They just can’t control it

They’re just lovin’ the Tea Party
They’re lovin’ the Tea Party
They’re lovin’ the Tea Party
They’re lovin’ the Tea Party
They’re lovin’ the Tea Party
They’re lovin’ the Tea Party
Tea-Baggers love a Tea Party!

Babies!
Babies tell me!
C’mon babies!
Find me baby!

They’re lovin’ the Tea Party
They’re lovin’ the Tea Party
It’s a party
Yeah, they’re lovin’ the Tea Party
They’re lovin’ the Tea Party
They’re lovin’ the Tea Party
It’s a party
They scream “No” at the Tea Party
They’re lovin’ the Tea Party
They’re lovin’ the Tea Party
It’s a party
AHHHHHHHHH!
They’re lovin’ the Tea Party
They’re lovin’ the Tea Party
It’s a party
Yeah tell me ‘bout their party1
They’re lovin’ the Tea Party
They’re lovin’ the Tea Party
It’s a party
They all have lost their way, baby
They’re lovin’ the Tea Party
They’re lovin’ the Tea Party
It’s a party
Now we know about Tea Parties, now
They’re lovin’ the Tea Party
They’re lovin’ the Tea Party
It’s a party
I got to find that Tea Bag party now
They’re lovin’ the Tea Party
They’re lovin’ the Tea Party
It’s a party

  1. Smelling a Rat

    The Bush deficits gave the GOP an excuse to ignore healthcare, poverty, education, crumbling infrastructure etc., with the added bonus of getting rid of Social Security and Medicare as the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.

    It doesn’t help that the singularly unappealing Cantor has taken over the mantle of teabagger-in-chief and that he’s clearly more concerned with tax cuts for the rich than the welfare of the rest of the country. Presumably, the teabaggers who can’t spell aren’t millionaires!

  2. Unfortunately, the yahoos they helped get elected in the midterms are still in office wreaking havoc by not doing anything about jobs, jobs, jobs as they promised (shocker!). Speaking of grassroots – how ’bout the President’s $86 million in fundraising? 552,000 individual donors, 260,000 NEW donors (yay!) who didn’t contribute in 2008, and average contribution of $69 per donor, 98% of total contributions coming from donations of $250 or less.

  3. I can’t believe it. They are missing a chance to see Michele in full attack mode, Santorum speaking dully, and those two stellar examples of Christian love, VanderPlaats and Dean, spew their hatred? My, my, my. Maybe there is hope for America after all.

  4. Irony is a pressing problem.

  5. They are in “full retard” mode, i.e., he ones who think they were elected in their districts and are therefore speaking for the entire country. They are sadly mistaken and are doing their best to f-up the world economy to please their evil Kochtopus overlords, and their pimp Grover Norquist.

  6. Ha, what’s wrong teabaggers? Not so excited anymore now that you’re starting to see the consequences of your stupid midterm vote? Don’t worry, Cantor and Bachmann will be sure to keep the government out of your Medicare.
