Tea Party Is Being Discarded In The Waste Heap of History

As time marches on, the Tea Party becomes more and more unpopular. No longer does a Tea Party rally garner large crowds. Both of the movement’s national conventions have been cancelled this year as the result of a lack of advance ticket sales. Furthermore, with every newly released poll, we learn that Americans have an increasingly negative view of the faux grass-roots movement. In short, the Tea Party is being pushed away by independent voters.

The most recent AP/GfK Poll released August 23rd reveals a sharp increase in the Tea Party’s “unfavorable” rating. Forty-six percent (46%) said they have a negative view of the movement while only 28% say they view it “favorably”. By the way, the increase by 10 points in the “unfavorable” category is all in the “very unfavorable” sub-category. The successive polls indicate the “unfavorable” views have been increasing since Tea Party-endorsed Republicans were elected to Congress in November 2010. Indeed, the sharpest declines have come since the Tea Baggers clamored for the United States to default on its obligations during the debt ceiling debate. In contrast, prior to the Tea Baggers actually having been elected to Congress back in June 2010, the movement’s “favorable” rating was 33% with its “unfavorable” rating being only 30%.

Mainstream Americans have caught on to the fact that Tea Partiers are the most confused and misinformed group of people since the “birthers”. Oh wait a second, they were the “birthers”. In any event, let’s just take a look at their positions on some of the issues of the day. All through 2010 and prior to the passage of the new health care law, they ran around shouting and carrying misspelled signs with the message “Leave My Medicare Alone” and “Keep Govt. Out Of My Medicare”. Nevermind the fact that the health care law had nothing to do with Medicare or that the program is 100% government run. They then proceeded to support a number of Tea Party candidates in the mid-term elections who, once elected, immediately began trying to pass laws which would eliminate the Medicare program.

The Tea Partiers are also known for protesting higher taxes. The problem is, taxes are at their lowest level in over 60 years. Furthermore, President Obama has not not increased one single tax since being elected. Instead, he has actually cut taxes for 95% of working/ middle class Americans by means of his 2010 payroll tax decrease. They should be on their knees thanking President Obama and opposing the elected Tea Party members who are presently refusing to extend those tax cuts.

Is it any wonder that the average American has little use for the Tea Party and its colonial-costumed members? Ah, Tea Party we hardly knew ye!

(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’ thigh-high boots while she winked 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)

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)

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

  1. Teavangelism

    “Mr. Perry, the governor of Texas, recently made headlines by dismissing evolution as “just a theory,” one that has “got some gaps in it” — an observation that will come as news to the vast majority of biologists. But what really got peoples’ attention was what he said about climate change: “I think there are a substantial number of scientists who have manipulated data so that they will have dollars rolling into their projects.

    So how has Mr. Romney, the other leading contender for the G.O.P. nomination, responded to Mr. Perry’s challenge? In trademark fashion: By running away! According to Public Policy Polling, only 21 percent of Republican voters in Iowa believe in global warming (and only 35 percent believe in evolution). Within the G.O.P., willful ignorance has become a litmus test for candidates, one that Mr. Romney is determined to pass at all costs.”
