Maybe there’s something wrong with me. All the crap going on and for the most part, it doesn’t really raise my ire all that much.
Bigoted law that panders to bigoted voters in Arizona and everyone is shocked. I’m not. That’s what the righties do to win elections. They pander to one of their base voting groups. This time the bigots. Why be shocked anymore? My shock would just give them pleasure. Not much different from me being happy I pissed off a righty today.
Republicans block debate on Wall Street reform three times before finally figuring out that even bigots, homophobes and idiots want it. I guess they had to check in with Homophobic Bigoted Idiot Central before deciding to stop blocking the debate. I wasn’t shocked. That’s what they always do. If Mitch McConnell stood up and told the bigots, idiots and homophobes to get the hell out of the Republican Party, that would be shocking.
President Obama was in my hometown of Quincy, Ill. yesterday. The turnout and reception were great. That was mildly shocking because our local media gives tons of attention to the tea baggers. Kind of like a little “FOX News” propaganda machine for them. Of course, tea baggers from four states showed up to protest outside the convention hall where President Obama was speaking. No shock there. They held up ignorant signs. That was no shock. The funniest one said “Freedom isn’t free. Lower taxes now!” We’ve seen enough ridiculous signs from tea baggers that that wasn’t shocking. Stupid and disingenuous, yes. Shocking? Nah.
Recently a video of an angry tea bagger accusing a cameraman of being a communist has been posted on several blogs. This nut tried to get his tea bagging friends to join him in a chant of “Death to the commies!”
Then he threatened to shove his flag up the cameraman’s posterior. Many were offended and shocked that a tea bagger would get so worked up by an imaginary bogeyman that he would go ape shit and want to shove a flag up a guy’s ass. I wasn’t shocked by that. Senator Lindsay Graham wasn’t shocked either. Word is he wants to meet the angry tea bagger.Click here for reuse options!
