It’s tax day today and there’s a slew of anti-tax “tea parties” being held across the country, which have been “have been co-opted by a major America political party (the RNC’s Web site allows for creating send-a-tea-bag post cards to Dem leaders) and an entire cable news channel (which has been promoting the events).”
Here’s my pick for the top headline of “tea-party” day: “Anti-Obama Taxpayer Tea Parties steeped in insanity.”
The Tea Party movement, more than anything else, is a rather garish display of a Republican right that seems to have lost not only the national elections but also any semblance of political bearings. Staying on this course, the GOP risks — in the words of one pundit — becoming “the Talk Radio Republican Party.”
Better put that kettle on, Marge. It’s going to be a long and bizarre four years.
Right-wing radicalism is on the rise.
And here’s another prime example of madness from the Republican party, or at least one member of the party: “In Minnesota, a Battle Without End for a Senate Seat.” Doesn’t Norm Coleman know it’s time to give it up?
Oh heavens… Is Sarah’s star fading?
Another day… the madness continues. I think I’ll put the kettle on, have a cup of herbal tea and then go for a walk on the beach.
