Skip to comments.Kathleen Parker: The Tea Fragger Party

Fragging: To intentionally kill or wound (ones superior officer, etc.), esp. with a hand grenade.
Take names. Remember them. The behavior of certain Republicans who call themselves Tea Party conservatives makes them the most destructive posse of misguided patriots weve seen in recent memory.
If the nation defaults on its financial obligations, the blame belongs to the Tea Party Republicans who fragged their own leader, John Boehner. They had victory in their hands and couldnt bring themselves to support his debt-ceiling plan, which, if not perfect, was more than anyone could have imagined just a few months ago. No new taxes, significant spending cuts, a temporary debt-ceiling solution with the possibility of more spending cuts down the line as well as action on their beloved balanced-budget amendment to the Constitution.
These people wouldnt recognize a hot fudge sundae if the cherry started talking to them....

What is she talking about? The bill passed the House. Did I miss something here?
she is stupid.
Sounds like a bunch of mish mash. Haven’t a clue.
I’d call her brain dead except that would mean she had a brain to begin with..idiocy like this proves she never had one
Is John Boehner our leader?
The left’s imagery has gotten so violent. Are they all on crack?
And they’re paranoid too.
Uh, I thought the bill past the House..?
Don’t bother replying or even posting Kathleen Parker, she is WaPo’s answer to Cynthia Tucker....
Passed the House..

(She is not anywhere near this attractive. There is about 3 handfuls of Vaseline on the camera lens to get her to look this good.)
This article makes no sense whatsoever. Is this like the how the Superbowl Champs T-Shirts are made up in advance for both teams so they are ready for the winning team at the end of the game? She had this all done up in case it was voted down and was released by mistake?
Someone needs to clue not so swift Kathy in that the Bill passed.
This is well-planned strategy to blame the Tea Party when Harry Reid and Obama allow default. Why don’t Republicans ever call Reid and the Democrats what they are, obstructionists and big spoiled brats.
Furthermore, do these imbeciles understand that Congress was meant disagree, meant to debate and hopefully get to a better solution in the end?
These people think everyone’s just supposed to get on-board no matter what the cost.
“These people wouldnt recognize a hot fudge sundae if the cherry started talking to them....”
Really. Well Kathy, we recognize a libtard when we see one, now take this lollipop and go play in traffic.
She should be thanking the Tea Party, which delivered a majority to the house. Fresh meat all 57 of them, in which more than half have already turned in only 8 months. Give Bonehead another 8 months and he will turn the rest with threats or bribes.
She made no investment, but DC got a hell of a return off the sweat, work and money of millions of us who elected them. What return did we get?
Another “please, PLEASE, PLEASE let me into the Ruling Class!” groveler.
Kathleen Parker, just another useful idiot for the left
that’s assuming she’s not already a card-carrying member
Call us misguided...I guess the patriots in the American revolution were misguided as well...I am more than honored to be put in the same group as the courageous fellows!
I believe she completed that trip in October of 2008. Since then she's just been digging a pit to make sure she can never come back.
Cut, cap and balance passed the house. It came fairly close passing the Senate too. But 0bama could have still vetoed it.
Ha Ha! Very Witty Katleen, Now her is your Thorazine...
South Carolinas contingent was so troubled that members repaired to the chapel Thursday to pray and emerged promising to vote no. Why? Not because Jesus told them to but because theyre scared to death that DeMint will primary them find someone in their own party to challenge them.
Could she sound any more like a garden variety internet leftist?
She learned a new word, and is practicing using it, bless her heart.
Ms Parker is somewhat attractive until she opens her pie hole or takes pen to Paper.
Hey Obama lover, there are NO superior officers in the TEA Party. It is the only egalitarian political movement in the whole world. Go back to sleeping under Obie Won’s pillow.
She'll get top billing on the cocktail party circuit for this one.
Pet peeve alert: cowards who hide behind the all inclusive "we"...instead of speaking for themselves.
There is plenty of revenue coming in to pay the interest on the debt, meaning no default.
Not paying desk jockeys in the Labor Dept does not constitute a default.
I don’t know what happened to this woman. A few years ago, I always read her column and usually agreed with her. Somewhere along the line, she took a hard left.
Kathleen, you ignorant slu...........!
Dumber than dirt.
We will, you ignorant bitch, and we'll re-elect them!
Yes, but that’s old news too! The bill that the House passed that the senate said would be rejected has already been voted down in the Senate. But wait, the senate can now change it up to suit themselves, and Obama, and send it back to the House for a vote tomorrow. Why bother to write articles inventing new names to call people? It’s a joke and the joke’s on the taxpayer.
Did Laura Ingraham write this? (sarc)
She fell in love with Obama.
Once you go black... /s
Her trip to the dark side was complete a long time ago. Looks like we have driven the correct parties into screaming, spitting fits. :) I hope we can continue to haunt these elitist dictator wannabes and make them cry - more with each election.
Even if Republicans are proposing spending cuts, it means nothing if they are amorphous, maybe 10 years down the road, cuts. We who lived through the Reagan era remember that the Democrats reneged on the deal they cut with Reagan, the one that was cited by Obama this week, in his attempt to excoriate the Tea Party Republicans for not being excited about the deal.
The Democrats in Congress at the beginning of the 80s promised $3 in spending cuts for every $1 in tax cuts. Well the tax cuts took effect immediately, and sparked an enormous boom in revenue. The cuts, however, never took place, and spending even increased, so that even though, at the end of the 80s revenue was 3 times higher than the beginning of Reagan's term, spending had increased even more.
This is what most worries the Tea Party representatives.
I guess you think it is all right for our illustrious pubbies to lie to our face for a vote. Then knife the nation and us in the back when they get scared. I am through being betrayed. Any congress critter that voted for this “plan” deserves to be thrown out on his ass in 2012. You see Ms.Parker American Patriots are made of sterner stuff than you and the congress.
RATS need to know this was a serious compromise and conservatives don’t want this plan.
Keep the discussion of what’s in the ‘reasonable’ zone to the right. Compromise to early and you’ve given up ground.
Was the right thing to do to vote against without a BBA.
Once you go twit,
You never remit.
The bill passed. What is she whining about?
These were never on the table before. The Dems added them as a bargaining point, so taking them out wasn't really an accomplishment.
significant spending cuts,
In the same sense that not landing a man on Mars will save us $10 trillion over the next ten years, yes. In the sense of actual money, no.
a temporary debt-ceiling solution
If a temporary debt ceiling solution was important to the GOP, it could have had that by taking an up-or-down vote long ago. It wasn't.
with the possibility of more spending cuts down the line
Which, when we press for them, d-bags such as yourself will excoriate us for.
as well as action on their beloved balanced-budget amendment to the Constitution.
Which was already declared "Dead on Arrival," so it it was nothing at all.
In fine and in sum, Boehner's Bill was no more real than Kathleen Parker's phony conservative credentials. Not one part of it achieved anything.
But it was the best we could do.
Meanwhile, a woman who actually endorsed the gormless tyro now presiding over the destruction of the US economy has the nerve to lecture the rest of us about "disloyalty."
I’m so tired of these Faux Conservatives.
Oh good, I was wondering what that fart-brain Ms. Parker had to say about this.
She's a member of the WaPo "Writer's" Group. Whining is her job.
The real reason is that she’s a twit.
