Saggy Teabaggin’ Tax Day Pulperized by Hipster Weirdo Rock: I Want My Perspective Back!

Can anyone find me one tax day teabagger event from yesterday that was even remotely as crowded as the Dirty Projectors show I went to last summer in Williamsburg? Weirdo rock FTW! Hipsters want their country back! Like, NOW!

MORE: The Daily Caller has a bunch of pics from Tax Day Tea Party in DC (the “biggest” event of the day).  I named this image “dopes.jpg”...

Dopes.

EVEN MORE: And they can’t blame the low crowd turnout in DC on the lack of musical entertainment…

NY is Tea Party country

Ummm, not quite...

In Manhattan, about 700 demonstrators were confined behind metal barriers just outside the main Post Office on Eighth Avenue. Carrying signs reading “I am tea’ed off” and “Redistribute my work ethic,” they waved American flags while a rock band urged, “You got to be a citizen again.”

It appeared that the authorities had expected a larger crowd. Only about a third of a second confinement area, between West 30th and West 29th Streets, was filled, and a third was empty.

That’s not the Dirty Projectors show.  That’s Roastacon 2009. 

Hey, blogstalkers.  That’s me in the sleeveless green shirt upfront.

I am sure those nice ladies in the folding chairs and that disabled vet, and the WWII vet will be MORE than happy to give up their social security, medicaid, VA disability etc., to help balance the budget right?  Right?  Hello?  Is this thing on?

What a pair of dumbasses. These jerks equate patriotism with painting their faces and sitting in the “Dog Pound” section at a Browns game.

That was Washington’s mistake at Valley Forge: not allowing tailgating.

A mistake the Bagging Crowd won’t be repeating in Hatriot Halloweens to come.

The Teabagger phenomenon is starting to remind me of another resentment-based political movement that received far more media attention than it merited. Can’t quite remember the name, but the other group was also long on hero worship and manufactured outrage but short on facts and political savvy. Both had their floridly racist elements and dedicated grievance mongers. Both had an exaggerated sense of their own importance. Both were pure comedy gold. What was the name of that other group? Don’t tell me. It’ll come to me…

Betty FTW!

Now come on people, all we have to do is put a white evangelical back in the Oval Office and this will all calm down.

Also. Both seemed to run out of steam somewhat when the Repubs’ astroturfers could no longer be bothered funding them after they failed to achieve anything except producing a lot of hot air, and sowing and capitalizing on divisions.

Just saying.

Betty, I’m not sure you want to attack the Skinheads in a public forum, even by sly inference. I get your point, but those people are really pissy.

Strange, be fair. Patriotism is much more complicated than that!

One must also affix a magnetic SUPPORT THE TROOPS yellow ribbon to one’s gas-guzzler, a process that can take literally tens of seconds, especially for the bitter, stupid, and arthritic.

Ah, patriotism circa 2010:  It’s not about whether or not the country does better, all that matters is that your side wins.

Wait—the Teabaggers get Victoria Jackson and we’re stuck with Tina Fey?

Very well.
