The Week Ahead in Tea

You’ll notice that the “CR” (continuing resolution) cliffhanger of last night’s episode of  “Clueless Kabuki Theatre” only funds the government through April 15 (and takes troop pay off the table so that criticism can’t be thrown at this week’s Teatard grandstanding).

What you may not know is that THIS year’s tax deadline is Monday, April 18.

I have not noticed that anyone in the media or blogosphere has drawn the connection between a nice hissy fit “shutdown” fight on tax weekend with the Tea Party’s favorite protest date, TAX DAY.

I’m sure that this is all completely coincidental and that no one in the Tea Party realized that they had an opportunity to shut down the gum’mint during the most intensive three days of Tax Season.

In the immortal words of “Bones” McCoy on Star Trek (TOS) as written by Theodore Sturgeon: In a pig’s eye.

    I would love to applaud such a nice Star Trek reference, especially a TOS reference.

    But “teatard?” Is that some play on the word “retard”?

    Gosh, I’m hoping you wouldn’t be so hurtful and ignorant to do such a thing?

    Would a play on a homophobic or ethnic slur be so clever?

    If that is some veiled reference to the word “retard” you ought to be ashamed.

    My guess is Hart’s satirical reference was intended to show the idiocy of the tea party and not to be hurtful to anyone. His sometimes caustic humor mixes things up here a bit.

    Circular firing squad, Scott.

    But let me state for the record that I humbly and sincerely apologize to anyone who is developmentally disabled, for having, even inadvertently, without thinking, associated them with Tea Party members. The same applies to snakes, weasels and rats.
