Thoughts on the teabaggers

These are the same people who cheered on Dear Leader as he launched an unprovoked war of aggression against a sovereign nation, running up a tab that would make full funding of universal health care look like the coins in your child’s Unicef box, while those of us who opposed the war for economic and moral reasons (and were proved fucking right, I might add) were branded traitors.

These same people then sat with their thumbs up their bums as the Bush administration and the Republican party drove this country into the ditch, dragging the Constitution and the Bill of Rights behind them, like the East Texas crackers who dragged James Byrd behind their pickup truck.

Do I take them seriously? Yes, like I take a cornered, rabid dog seriously. But their words? To quote a famous playwright, ‘it is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.’
