I’m Not An Idiot
I’m sure none of them are lying. OK, the teabag people may not “all” be idiots, but why are you positioning yourself to look like one? Not only are you complaining about taxes after they were reduced, complaining about Obama spending money but not Bush, supporting candidates who obviously needed major assistance filling out the qualifying candidacy paperwork…but you’re standing beside these people.
Let’s add up a few dumb things the Teabag people have done lately:
In Alaska, where they need federal funding, they’ve nominated a guy who’s promising to end government handouts.
In Delaware, they had a GOP candidate who was polled to beat the Democrat…and they nominate a witch.
In New York they nominate a homophobe who likes to send emails of beastiality as their candidate for governor. He also has this idea where we can house poor people in prisons.
In Ohio they nominate a congressional candidate who likes to wear swastikas but it’s OK, he’s bonding with his son.
In South Dakota, they nominate a Congressional candidate with over 30 tickets for her driving and multiple arrests for skipping court.
They nominate a candidate for Senate in Nevada against abortion which is understandable…but even in the case of rape and incest. She says when she’s counseled youth against getting an abortion (and having that incest baby) they turned lemons into lemonade.
They nominated a congressional candidate in Delaware who says anyone who believes in the separation of church and state is a Nazi (what is it with Delaware?….and Nazis?).
A congressman in Arizona who says Obama is an enemy of humanity.
Not to mention Rand Paul of Kentucky or that they actually pay Sarah Palin to hear her thoughts.
I didn’t show this cartoon to my editor for us to put in the print edition. Hey, I’m not an idiot.
OK….hit me with the angry comments.
