Best. Photo. Ever.

On April 15, 2009 By

This is hands down the best photo of the day (and I’ve looked at quite a few):

The photo is from a blogger at the Philly teabagging. He was not sympathetic to the cause. He did however get many thumbs up on the sign.

Hilarity.

A reader forwards yet another photo of the weak turnout in Columbus today. Photographer estimated the crowd at around 20. I guess a little rain dampened their revolutionary spirits.

People will continue to pay taxes (95% of us less) and Barack Obama will still be our President. Carry on.

If you want to see other example of the failure, see #teapartyfail.

Deep Thought: Praying for Rain

On April 15, 2009 By

Anyone else notice the irony of rain today? Remember when wingnuts prayed to God to make it rain on Obama’s acceptance speech in Denver?

Anyone find it funny that instead it is raining on teabagging parties? Everywhere I look on TV it’s umbrella city.

Has he spoken?

Irony. Oh sweet irony!

Just spied a tweet from Chris Geidner (aka Law Dork):

They Want ZERO Taxes?

Let’s see. Zero taxes likely takes away that sidewalk you are so comfortably sitting on while protesting:

What Higher Taxes? Part Deux

On April 15, 2009 By

The White House answers the teabag lunacy in a cool, calm, collected manner:

Pressed repeatedly to respond to the Tea Party demonstrations taking place right outside the White House gates, spokesman Robert Gibbs largely stuck to the numbers. The president, he stressed, had just recently passed a “tax cut that covers the most people in the history of this country.”

“The president promised significant tax relief for working families of this country, and in the first month of the administration delivered that to the American people,” Gibbs said.

Reporters were unrelenting in the questioning, seeking more and more comment […]

Update: After a robot recovered and inspected the package thrown over the fence into the White House lawn, the teabaggers have been allowed back into that area. Additional tax expenditure caused by this and other incidents will be lost completely on these fools.

DC Teabagging has been nixed:

UPDATE 2:15 P.M. The second tea party protest in Washington, D.C., outside the White House, was just shut down by police. A Secret Service agent told Huffington Post’s Arthur Delaney that a demonstrator had thrown a package over the fence onto the White House lawn.

Duh.

What Higher Taxes?

On April 15, 2009 By

My taxes have gone down. Big ass refund coming too (double last year). My take home pay has also increased since February.

What has yours done?

Obama Tax Day Genius

On April 15, 2009 By

In just under an hour President Obama is going to completely diffuse this tax day teabagging nonsense. How, you say? Easy:

WASHINGTON ? On the day of the deadline for Americans to file their tax returns, President Barack Obama will talk about restoring fairness to the tax code and providing tax relief to working families.

Then he’ll be off to Mexico and the Carribean. Business as usual. Ignoring the insanity and giving the wingnuts enough rope to hang themselves.

So at the end of the day we’ll have cool, calm, collected Obama tell us about restoring actual fairness […]
