Pictures of the Week


From the so-called "New American Tea Party" (essentially, a Vaudevillian angry-white-guy "revolution" fomented by idiots like Michelle Malkin, Glenn Beck, and Joe the Plumber) yesterday in Washington, DC.


So this is what Smart America's gonna be up against for the next few years, eh?

Well, at least we won't run out of easy targets for ridicule.

Tea bag?
So wait, they're actually advocating sucking Libdem scrotums - or am I misunderstanding them?
Cause that, I'd watch....

In their desire to latch onto cultural zeitgeists and "hip" terms, I wish they'd stick to ones that are current (instead of dipping into 80's/90's hip-hop) and ones they actually understand (since this seems a clear case of "I do not think it means what I think you think it means" with the tea bagging...)

Because nothing screams "Take me seriously!" like a ball sack joke.

I'm more interested in the sign "Me Acorn... Dead and ... Got to... Once". And what's visible of her t-shirt says "POO".

I want to join their group, they have good drugs.

How can they be the leading consumers of porn, and yet not know what teabagging means? It's puzzling.

As an example, I'd like to share my favorite clueless winger - http://www.phillyburbs.com/opinions/blogs/courier_blogs/jd_mullane.html

This guy used to actually have a blog that would get up to a hundred talkback posts leading up to the election. Post-election, even though he's getting increasingly hysterical, people seem to be just ignoring him like Joe the Plumber at a book signing.

I'd say we're actually making progress here very quickly. Now if somebody could let Jake Tapper know.

I don't care that this is the Second Great Depression - I've GOT TO HAVE one of those little pig balloons!

The proper slogan is Make tea not war.

Besides I thought tea was symbolic for the British oppression of the colonies in American politics?

And Jon Stewart was worried that he'd have no one to make fun of now that Dubya is out of the White House.

Once again, the neo-cons just can't help themselves from revealing their summer homes in the closet.

Okay, if they have another one of these idiotic tea party protests in my city, I am going to have to infiltrate it. I'm thinking "We're scared because the president is a different color" would be good.

It's a sticker, and it does, in fact, say "POOP." You can see it plastered on a sign in this pic:

Because everyone who voted for Obama is a genius!

Did Urban Dictionary add a function to their site where you can click a button and have a random word come up? Because it seems like that's the current Republican strategy for appealing to different demographics. Find some random, 'hip' word and make sure it's mentioned in a minimum of 25% of each speech or soundbite that is given. You can't deny this is entertaining to watch, but a part of me is always nervous that a few too many people are taking it seriously.

I don't think teabag means what you think it means, Freepers...
