It's hard to keep a positive outlook in a negatively charged environment. That's because opposites attract, so I keep getting stuck to pessimists.

Teabaggers? To Quote Inigo Montoya...

Rate: 2 Flag

"You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means."

I just can not believe that the media has latched on to the term "teabaggers" in reference to yesterday's "protests" (this word also deserves quotations).  Don't these people know what that really means, and if not,  should someone tell them? (If you are among the unknowing, direct your feet to your friendly search engine, and your eyes shall be opened, child.)

The utter disorganization of the whole thing should, however, be of no surprise to anyone.  This fits well with the idea that we should act now and think later, a sort of mental health plan for the ultraconservative.  Many of the OS writers covering the event have noted that each person asked why they were protesting seemed to have a different reason.  It seems that, faced with the prospect of at least a couple of years of not being in control, conservatives are floundering.   The net they've cast is the biggest they could find, with the smallest holes, designed to catch as many people as possible who might have a problem with the way things are or the way they are being handled.  It's a buffet, and you know how we here in America love a big buffet.

 On the flip side, I guess teabagging has some relation to what's going on here.  Either way, somebody is putting something in other people's mouths.
