The Tea Party

I'm listening to Sarah Palin giving her speech
to the Tea Party Convention.

She's being paid 100 thousand dollars.

no way she gets out of the primaries. she is nothing more than talking points and the more she spoke while being the VP nominee, the more people found out she's a fraud.

i applaud those who think that cutting deficits require cutting taxes and not reducing spending.

such idiocy requires a level of bravery.

Republicans don't care about deficits, they care about taxes.

And thinking you can spend your way out of debt makes sense?

I'd be for keeping the Bush Tax cuts for all Americans under 250K, freezing federal government hiring and cutting all spending except Medicare and Social Security (but including military) 25% over a few years.

Would you?

fuck all of those stupid fuckers. let's not use sense to fix any problems, let's just pretend they'd have got it right because there's no way of proving otherwise.

fuck the lot of them.

It makes as much sense as giving promising to cut taxes as a way of fixing the deficit.

The fact is the stimulus was needed, or we'd be in much worse shape. I do agree that we need a freeze on a lot of government programs, and isn't that something Obama has just proposed?

To think he is going to solve all the problems in one year is a joke, and one that a lot of people bought into. Fairly or unfairly, Obama was going to lose out. When you're made out to be a savior, and you don't perform exactly like that......people get mad.

The problem with the tea party is you're just getting a bunch of morons fired up over nothing. Obama is not a socialist, and you can't solve extremely complex issues with moron solutions (cut taxes!!! DEYTOOKRJOBS!!!)

Hopefully this next year Obama can provide some better solutions for the country, and his own party can get behind....and either the republicans show they can work with him, or Obama finds ways to show them to be the pricks they are.

I found Doris Kearns-Goodwin's suggestion to be interesting: let the Republicans filibuster any bill they want, broadcast the whole thing on TV, and thus expose their nonsense opposition for the opposition's sake to the public.

The tea party folks at least are entertaining... their hopes of a completely unelectable woman, their simpleton "science", their Leave it to Beaver social mentality, their backwards logic, and overall selfish 5th grade intellect.
