Utah Tea Party Roundup

Mark Shurtleff does not impress. Then again, neither do the rest of these clowns.

In response to complaints in comments, here's an original thought (and a great read):

And now....the helpless despair sets in

But before you click on that link (and do click, it's worthy), I think this is as good a summation as any ... Giant Puppets:
All fun aside, there's obviously nothing wrong with the right attempting to engage in protest politics. The problem is that it was never clear what they were protesting. So far Obama has cut taxes for most of the population and... well, that's it. The protests of "The Left" have long been mocked for lacking message discipline. That criticism has often been fair. The difference is that our side's protests generally have a single point ("don't do this stupid fucking war in Iraq") which gets hijacked by a bunch of other causes when the speakers hit the stage. But the teabaggers... honestly, I still have no idea what it was about. I mean, I know it was about tribal allegiance against Barack Mumia Saddam Obama III. But it wasn't actually about anything else.
But, then again, I would agree with Atrios, wouldn't I?

Pay special attention to that last frame, wingers. Whine and stomp your feet all you want, but elections still matter in this country.

Typical Liberal. All you know how to do is insult. Do you have an original thought, or are you just spouting what the news media is teaching you?

Hmmm ...

I'm amused that you start off by calling me a "typical liberal" and then complain that I'm only capable of "insult" ... Unless, of course, you meant "typical liberal" as a compliment? Hardee har har.

In any case, you're always welcome to make up for the lack of original thought around here by leaving one or two of your own.

That's the problem with the RRRW. You can't merely give them full control. You have to also love Big Brother with all your heart and soul.

I think I'll go read some Paul Krugman now just to cheese them off.
