Honestly, I think you're wrong. I think the Tea Party believes that they lost. More than that, I think the Tea Party believes that they lost for the sole reason that they didn't stand their ground. Maybe if Obama had been walking around in a hoodie and carrying a bag of Skittles, things would have turned out differently.

Franco:  Too tolerant of dissent.
Hitler:  Soft on immigration.  Also, a socialist.
Stalin:  Soft on crime, esp. ones like "reading".  Also, a commie.
Bush:  Libbiest lib that ever soshalizmed.  Either 1 or 2, doesn't matter.

I think you should pepper it with obscure homo-erotic euphemisms. Oh, and rape references. That's pretty much all you're missing.

As a woman, I'd like to suggest some reference to abortion/baby killing.

Needs more Jeezus... Also, ALL CAPS for words like "SOCIALIST," DICTATOR," "rally OUR troops," etc, & more exclamation points. Have to over-emphasize the nuttery, otherwise they'll see that you're not truly "ONE OF US!!!"


This is an actual reply to the comment Heliovdrake posted. Straight copy and paste:

"wow, great stuff! Too many Americans are TOTALLY unaware or don't care about the danger this country faces right now...and it's not from FOREIGN ENEMIES! God help us!"

ModernPrimitive01: Random email from one of my freeper coworkers this morning:

With the latest Obama victory over the Constitution and over the surviving remnants of America in the debt limit/Obamacare battle, it's a good time to recall the political make-up of Post-America:

**The Democrats are the evil party.  They believe in Nothingness (degeneration, destruction, deconstruction, the Abyss).
**The Republicans are the stupid party.  They believe in nothing.
**The media demonize the Republicans and worship the Democrats.  Even though the Republicans don't actually do much to fight the Democrats, the Democrats still need a "Goldstein" type enemy to whip their (ahem) "low information" voters into a frenzy of hate every so often, and hapless Republicans like Mitt Romney, John McCain, and John Boehner serve this purpose.
**Anyone who actually attempts to fight the Democrats, and to represent working and middle class Americans, will be demonized, trashed, and pounced upon by the Democrats, the Republican establishment, and the media.  See Ted Cruz and the Tea Party for details.

This doesnt mean we can be complacent until 2014-16. Obama is trying to disarm us now, BOTH politically and physically, no adminstation on earth since or before the NAZIs have tried so hard to disarm its people before a hostile takeover, while at the SAME TIME giving money away to its most violent drug using elements, and making it so the CRIMINALS are better armed then the average soverign citizen.

I think you're missing the nuance of the Republican position on this.  Don't worry, a lot of you libulardos do.  See, this tragic defeat was a huge win for the GOP in that it showed them standing up against tyranny, except for the traitorous scum that run the party.  This victorious tragedy will only serve to galvanize the true conservatives against the American hating Republicans and Democrats and rally real Americans to the cause of freedom under the banner of a Republican party strongly united in the sacred necessity of tearing it apart to get at the backstabbers.

Anyone check out the Ted Cruz quiz in the link?

4. Which controversial quote below was NOT said by Cruz?

A) "I think the sequester happens and it will be in some ways a yawn."
B) "I think it's really sad to see the president of the United States exploiting the murder of children and using it to push his own extreme anti-gun agenda."
C) "I'll work with Martians."
D) "I'm pretty certain Mitt Romney actually French-kissed Barack Obama."

The answer is A; Rand Paul said that line.

The GOP/Teabaggers are a football team that just decided to punt on first & goal.  And now they're high-fiving each other for their brilliant tactic.

That is a terrible analogy. So by your logic, destroying the US and world economy is now considered the equivalent of "touchdown"?


I don't think that.  The teabaggers think that defunding Obamacare is a TD.  Get it?  They had this big goal of somehow defunding or repealing Obamacare, which was a stupid goal.  But their tactics were even more idiotic.  They failed to accomplish their goal, they got a worse deal than what they would have gotten if they'd just accepted the Senate's CR back in September, they increased the federal debt (that thing they claim to care SO MUCH about) unnecessarily by $24 billion, AND on top of all of that everyone hates them.

Granted, I'm not sure where destroying the economy falls in a football analogy.  Maybe they have the ball at 1st and goal, but they've threatened to dynamite the whole stadium and everyone in it, including themselves and their own fans, if they don't score their TD.  But instead of running plays, they let the play clock wind down and get called for delay of game penalties and they finally punt, and Obama returns it 100 yards for the TD.

Is that better?  Maybe there isn't a good sports analogy here, but it made sense to me at the time.

Let's be perfectly clear though. Of the 30 or so Tea Party asshats who started this mess, most of them are from the good ol' confederacy. Let's not forget that.

You know when the Union won 150 years ago, the Confederates went back home and said "We fought the good fight" and all they had to show for it was a bunch of dead people and a destroyed economy.
