Apparently no one told the baggers...both are still listed as speakers (new window)

You know, if it wasn't for the fact that the money that I'd be spending would be going toward supporting complete lunacy, I'd love to attend this thing. Just for the experience of it. Just to see that much concentrated crazy compressed into such a small place. The sights, the sounds, the smells...it's almost a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. And think of the material. Although you'd probably need a day-long shower and psychotherapy afterward.

They'd sense you were different. You'd get backed into a corner by the ravening mob. If you were lucky, they would kill you quickly.

I don't need to go see it, I'll just read the conservative headlines on Fark for a day and top it off with a visit to the freepers if necessary.

teabaggers' biggest nuts

Isn't that rather redundant?

You know you're too crazy if Michelle Bachmann isn't going to your crazy party.

Boycotting their own convention. Those teabaggers sure are a fickle group.

Come on down to Tucson sometime when the Minuteman loonies show up. Same crowd. They're fantastic. Out-of-state Okie farks with semi-auto rifles, radios and night vision, scouring the desert for illegal immigrants. They scare easy ;)

If they get their candidates elected, they'll rape us to death, eat our flesh, and sew our skins into their clothing. And if we're very, very lucky, they'll do it in that order.

Pretty soon their convention will be at the Howard Johnsons.

Jeannie is bringing her famous potato salad and Peggy's bringing the Jello mold.
 
2010-01-28 08:07:14 PM  
The teabaggers want this to be free? Palin shouldn't be trying to get as much as she can for her services?

I thought every tea bagger was financially independent, would never need health care or assistance and has a ready cash flow just for events like this, to help promote capitalism?

I've been lied to. They are nothing but broke commies.

Hang in there Tea-baggers Sarah Palin would never quit something she's committed to.

I knew they'd make their descent sooner or later.

Me and the wife are going. We're not even going inside. We're just gonna sit outside the perimeter and sell things like helmets that keep out the Liberal Agenda and t-shirts that say "Palin/Bachmann Oh Twelve, baby!"

Pish-tosh, the 'baggers aren't Reavers: the Reavers are ultimately tragic figures, forced into mania by forces beyond their understanding or control. They never picked up their heads one day, looked around at their nice normal lives, and thought to themselves, "You know what? Sanity and good manners are boring."

I don't pity the Reavers enough to want to walk up and give 'em comforting hugs, but just like zombies, I do feel sorry for them. None of the zombies ripping your brains out ever wanted to become slavering undead.

Well, except for a couple of psycho bug-chasers: I suppose that's always a possibility, what with Rule 34 and all...

Many tea party activists across the country are boycotting the convention over its $550-per person ticket price

If by boycotting you mean their disability checks won't cover it then yes.
 
2010-01-28 08:59:46 PM  
Palin is speaking at the convention? I thought that the Tea Party's new official position on her is that she should be killed because she endorsed John McCain over J.D. Hayworth.
 
2010-01-28 09:00:17 PM  
Without those two nuts this convention will be tainted.

All due respect, I like Marsha and Michelle but their cowering in the face of mere threats have made this redneck loose some respect for these two women. If they act this way for a convention then how can I seriously look at them to not do the same when it comes to legislation?


Watching it over there is kinda like watching Aamtrak footage. You know it's not gonna end well, you should look away, but I just can't.
