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.

Wasn’t it Anderson Cooper who cast the slur “teabagger” on the tea party patriots?

Someone who knows the concept empirically and practices it.

Yep. He and David Gergen sniggered about it (and, I guess they are experts on the practice) and touched off a whole line of smutty propaganda.

Where there are patriotic Americans, there are "teabaggers".

What's wrong with Babs is, she is under the delusion that we care what she thinks...not true.

I guess her next colume will be a detailed description of her last visit to the gynocologist, assuming she IS a woman.

[Had some of the activists joined. . .the protests against the Bush tax cuts for the top one percent, the deficit might not have exploded to the point it was when President Obama was inaugurated.]

The semi-literate Left don't read the news. Their belief system is constructed from slogans, sound bites and bumper stickers. The Bush tax cuts lowered the tax rate of any American paying taxes. The deficit increased due to uncontrolled spending.

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

Jeez you guys on FR make me laugh out loud.

BTW

Do you think she had much of a brain before it went flying out the other end?


What kind of person uses such an image in a political article? Weird.

And I thought good the suggestion :

please explain to us just what a teabagger is, and why it applies. Explain in detail.

All we thought is that we were like the original patriotic Boston Tea Party protesting high taxes ........ why do you have such a problem with that?

Why does it make you vicious and obscene?

How much taxes must we pay? Is it ever enough???

I await her reply.

I call this the “Conservatives In The Mist” mode

Well put. I've seen a lot of that lately. Some editor at CNN recently did a piece, for instance.

OK, now I have a visual to attach to the viral thought of hours spent on the toilet prepping for a colonoscopy. Thanks.

The only truthfulness I could glean from the whole article was she is upset that people dont find her pretty enough. The rest was just a pretense of being political commentary.

Based on her obvious lack of vision, I’d say it’s her head that’s stuck up there...

Never was a newspaper more aptly named: it really is post intelligence.

And while we’re at it, why don’t conservatives come up with some nasty smutty derogatory name for liberas/progressives? Well, actually, I do know why. It’s because conservatives, for the most part, have better manners than to call people they disagree with a nasty name. But liberals love to swear and use filty language: it helps to show everyone how liberal they are with the english language.

Wow. Maybe if you could better write the opinions of you, it would approve more people of you.

Have you ever seen a liberal react when you call one a Socialist?

Credit goes to Michelle Malkin for that term, by the way. I was very taken with it myself.

I got that idea when Anderson Cooper and Wolf Blitzer were having a hearty laugh at the “teabagger” joke. Sorry I don’t get out enough for ya.
