    Is there anyone in the um, “crowd”, that doesn’t have a tripod?

    Nothing but media there. Even the Teaparty faithful knows whats up. They know they were deceitfully taken for a RIDE and the legislators they sent to Washington are only interested in BIG BANK and the destruction of Obama. NO way the corrupt MSM can hide the BIG NO SHOW!!!

      No tea party supporters have been showing up at any event that I’ve seen featured—–a couple in folding chairs at one event with a few passersby in the background—–another in S. Car. where it looked like there were no more than 11 in attendance——and they had to cancel that convention in Vegas that they’re being suied for etc. I just heard a caller say it would be interesting to know what percentage of the electorate/population the tea party congress peeps represent——is it even 5% who are holding the country and the world hostage?

        Exactly dolster. It is pretty apparent that the Teaparty Reps are working only for the COC and Grover Norquist. In there minds…BE DAMNED to the people of the this nation. Obama/Biden 2012!!

    Good Morning Chipsticks and family. Hope everyone is doing fine. We need to charge him for wasting out tax money for setting up that awful platform on the grounds that we pay. I thought he is suppose to be on the House Floor talking his fool head off like he does everyday.

    Looks like it is Gohmert and his supporters, the press.

      A lot of truth in that statement. The Tea Party is manufactured and MSM inflated and always willing to embrace the malleable and ignorant.

        My theory is that none of the corporatists like Dick Armey have felt it was worth it to finance their trips to these events since 2010. I also think that in the case of this TP event, they want the debt ceiling to be raised, so it would not be in their best interest to have D.C. filled with angry tea partiers raising h*ll and telling Boehner to “kill the bill” at this particular time.

    Oh, man! Look at that crowd! My goodness, I’m shaking in my $29.99 Mossimo VIviana Yellow Patent Platform Pumps. ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

    Hahahahahahahahahaha ooooooooh what a crowd….. I’m shaking in my boots. The tea party has always been an astroturf movement. They call themselves a “grassroots” group. Yeah right. A “grassroots” group funded by the KOCH brothers, elements of big business and wallstreet, and the ALEC organization. Louie Gohmert of the “President Obama wasn’t born in America” birther BS is probably holding a “rally” with the voices in his head. They’re all pathetic.

    Perfect caption: Gohmert speaks to his loyal supporters (aka the news media)

    Story begins here:
    Today, Representative Louie Gohmert (R) of Crazyland, Texas, summoned his loyal supporters to discuss his plans on the debt ceiling. His supporters, the tri-pod ones, appeared on the lawn of the state Capitol to listen to the nutty one delude them with his insanity………

    • July 27, 2011 at 2:48 pm

      you had me going there for a while africa. I was like : ‘I love this column! what paper is it?!! Sign me up for a subscription!’ —- honestly though, this is the best lead to a story on the Crazytrain I’ve ever seen ๐Ÿ˜†

    To be fair, I saw another angle where it looks like there’a about the same number of Baggers as propagandists, er I mean Press people, over on the right (no pun intended) in the darkened shade (pun intended).

    They didn’t want their Hoverounds to overheat in the hot sun, since they’re worried their Medicare won’t cover it, and they won’t be able to afford a new with their reduced Social Security payments that they live on.

      Probably keeping their fat asses out of the sun. If their Hoverounds overheat than so to does their ‘bacon’.

    On another note even with all the crap President Obama is dealing with his standing among democratic voters is high when compared to other democratic Presidents The article does have some stupid comments about only Clinton and Truman winning reelection but fails to mention John Kennedy was assassinated and Lyndon Johnson decided not to run.

    Boehner: โ€˜A Lotโ€™ Of Republicans Want To Force Default, Create โ€˜Enough Chaosโ€™ To Pass Balanced Budget Amendment

    • July 27, 2011 at 2:33 pm

      Boehner went to bed and got up with fleas. Now, he’s finding out. Heh.

      Oh, that woman from Wasilla can’t stand to be out of the news cycle. Surely after she defeated the undefeated, and her friend is seen to be sucking all the air out what would normally be her playground, she’s looking for attention.

    • July 27, 2011 at 2:59 pm

      I hope somebody in the MSM picks up on exactly what Boehner was admitting to – there are GOP members in his caucus who want a default and the chaos that would ensue. Think about that for a minute.

        Do you really think the MSM will pick up on the GOP’s overt plan? The Prez and the Dems will have to make the nation aware of GOP catastrophic plan. ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

        She reminds me of those mental patients sitting in the corner of a ward, quietly, then all of a sudden you hear these strange noises emanating from seemingly nowhere in particular. ๐Ÿ˜€

        It will destroy a person and millions of people. A hateful and mean spirit. That is who she is. But thank God, we have a beautiful, intelligent, compassionate, caring, a world traveler who has and does interact with people from all over this globe, and cares about the goodness and how he chooses to use the gifts and talents that God has given him for the betterment of each and every one, now that is a person we listen to, help to complete this journey now and for another term, that is what is important to us. She can shut the hell up because that is all she speaks, hellish garbage. Go away woman. Enough of you. Now let’s get back to work on real issues.

  17. July 27, 2011 at 3:16 pm

    One of the headlines in my local paper (I don’t read it ๐Ÿ˜‰ on Sunday was: “State Tea Party to Organize”.

    I didn’t bother to read the story, as I won’t pay a dime for this redneck paper.. but this town in ND here seems over run by teabaggers.. of course its a small town and big oil is all over the place as we’re having a state wide boom. I’m sure we’ll hear more from this tea party crowd as we get closer to the election and the media will do all they can to ‘sell’ them to us- but ultimately they are nothing but small and noisy and obnoxious in my opinion.

    Hi Everyone,

    I’m a newcomer who has been lurking on this site for a while. Thanks for giving me a place of sanity when things get too crazy to tolerate. Anyway, I was sending Boehner an email a little while ago when I came across this. Funny stuff. Enjoy.

      I enjoyed reading dickipedia….Boehner is the manifestation of The Peter Principle. It is a wonder how he got this far, and no wonder he is in way over his orange and leathery head.

      I wrote him a very long missive today, I was just thinking it would be interesting to read what we have all wrote to these often less than illustrous leaders. I know I told Boehner, perfidity was a bad habit of his he should work at breaking.

    Hahahaha, this is so funny to watch. He is practically talking to his supporters/teabaggers, the msm. That is too painful to watch even for me, you expect lots to turn up to scream at Potus and all you get are your creators, the press? lol.

You may ask your Sugar-daddy Murdoch, how’s that bus tour working out for you?

    Hi Sue,
    Thanks for the warm welcome. I’m not sure why my information didn’t post earlier. I thought that I had signed in…go figure. Anyway, here is what I wrote to our wonderful speaker. I sent the clean remix. The uneditied version in my head was uh, well…you get the picture. Besides, I live in a predominitely urban area (I had to list my address in the email) and I wouldn’t want to give ole Sunkist any furter reason to assume that everyone in my town is ignorant. Therefore, I was forced to take the high road while gritting away all of the enamel on my teeth.

    Dear Speaker Boehner,

    I hope this email finds you well and you are working hard to make the right decision on behalf of the American people. As the debt ceiling deadline approaches, it is imperative that a deal is reached that is fair and balanced. The American people have spoken loud and clearly. In this debate, politics appears to be winning the race over the people. I am merely a middle class American who is far less wealthy than those who adorn Wall Street. However, even I would be willing to share some sacrifice for those who have less than me. That’s true patriotism. Most Americans are not seeking or need a handout; what we need is a government that works for all Americans, not just the wealthiest among us. The American people are counting on you to make the right…no correct choice that is embraces compromise and allows us to prove that our democratic society is a model for other countries to follow. Thanks in advance for putting our country first.
