Armed with the usual tasteful mix of Confederate flags, “Bury Obamacare with Kennedy” posters, and enough colonial costumes to make anyone feel proud, the good citizens of this country proved to the rest of the world just how nutty some folks really are.
Of course not every protester at the big September 11th Teabagger Festival on September 12 focused on Herr Obama and his socialist policies bankrupting America; some directed their ire at the illegal immigrants leeching onto the country, the horror of their sacred semi-automatic machine guns being taken away, and this outrageous unAmerican plan to spend taxpayer money on something other than bombing oil-rich countries in the Middle East.
While most lawmakers decided to steer clear of the fun-filled rage parade, some brave souls like South Carolina Senator Jim DeMint decided to hinge their political futures on the notion that such important American ideals as unchecked aggression, bigoted rage, and sheer, unadulterated ignorance, are shared by the vast majority of citizens.
“This is not some kind of radical right-wing group,” Sen. Jim DeMint said. “I just hope the Congress, the Senate, and the president recognize that people are afraid of what’s going on.”
I assure you Mr. DeMint. We’re pretty much freaking the f**k out!
