Teabaggers Part Deux (Lib Seattle Colunist)
Seattle PI ^ | 4/6/10 | Barbara Sehr

Posted on 04/08/2010 9:27:34 AM PDT by illiac

This column is a little inflammatory...

Last week, in this space, I appear to have awakened a movement larger than the one I achieved prior to my last colonoscopy. Who could have thought that government resentful "teabaggers" existed here in the rain forests of the Puget Sound?

After my recent personal encounter with these activists in the other Washington, I imagined that they were simply part of the extensive production capability of FOX News. Who would have thunk that they are very much alive and well and reading blogs here at Seattlepi.com?

It would appear at first glance that my experiences with the East Coast tribes of the Tea Party movement did not achieve much sympathy with the local chapters. Perhaps if I possessed the good looks and moneyed style of Sarah Palin I might have been greeted as a liberator and party functionary. Apparently, my "good looks" do not meet the standards of some of you. In some of the now-deleted comments on last week's installment, readers made it quite clear that my looks were not even close to the standards of Flip Wilson's "Geraldine" or even Milton Berle.

Poor writer, this, I find myself “copy-editing” just to try to understand her. Government resentful? Awkward. Does this illiterate have any kind of following?

I agree with Rush’s strategy. Every time these smarmy pukes uses the term “teabaggers”, have them explain what “teabagging” is and where the term came from and how that applies to the group in question.

IF they answer honestly, they will be made to look like a Beavis & Butthead juvenile. If they decline to answer, they lose their credibility.

There’s a spelling error on your headline.

From the content of her “piece”, it probably should be “colon-ist”.

seriously, why give this pathetic website any more hits?
if the mainstream media go out of their way to “teabag” the movement while spreading lies about teapartiers, why would we expect any integrity from some leftist fringe blog?

man i just wasted time typing this response—almost as much time as i spent reading her drivel.

I call BS. Judging from the excerpt, had Barbara had a movement that large before her colonoscopy, she would have died from brain loss.

A comedienne? Like Don Rickles?

All I read was ridicule; nothing like Stephen Wright, Johnny Carson or Mel Brooks. Those are comedians.

This represents typical lib logic (or lack thereof).
Presenting a counter argument is so damned easy.

Oh, and lady, don’t tell us about the Obamas coming out of your Obama-hole. Such stuff is gross.

and people wonder why the Seattle PI became a web only “newspaper”. They are more left..extremely looney lib left to the Seattle Times, whose editors were caught jumping for joy when Karl Rove resigned.

I don't know where people get the idea that this is exclusively a homosexual practice. I guess some people just need to get out more.

I refer to the tea partier haters as feltchers. Of course, urbandictionary provides an alternate definition for the word, but I don’t mean it that way. I only intend it to mean tea partier hatred. They don’t appreciate it when they seen alternate definitions.

Typical soon-to-be-unemployed condescending leftist. I call this the “Conservatives In The Mist” mode, in which the leftist writer sees herself as primatologist Diane Fossey (sp), just trying to underSTAND the lowly gorilla conservatives.

I don't know about "inflammatory" but the column is certainly dripping with condescension and a sense of entitlement. Were it better-written it might have communicated its central content much more quickly - nothing.

What is amusing is the outrage she displays by the simple act of her ideological opponents returning her own vituperation to her in the same form she belched it. Kettle, meet pot, and neither belong in the kitchen if they can't take the heat.
