Teabagger Facts Further Defined

Here is the next installment. 


  1. No Bell
    No trophy
    No nothin

    No kidding

  2. Hello Jerry Critter,
    My current posting is on “Sarah Palin's Weird WTF “Sputnik” Story” attacking the “Sputnik Moment” line from President Obama's second State of the Union address. Sarah Palin in her Tea Party’s counter point rant, wildly misconstrued the president's argument.

    I was talking with a good friend of mine and I posed the question of how so many people think that Sarah Palin is the one the Tea Party feels the need to rally around when it is so obvious to the rest of us how unworldly and uneducated of what I see as being basic information knowledge. Examples of knowing who the Allied Countries verses Axis Countries during WWII. Not knowing that North Korea and South Korea were two separate countries and how they came about….and knowing which one was our ally, that Africa is a continent and not a single country, etc.

    His reply was that those Tea Party members who think that Sarah Palin and those like her who ran for office in this last election on the Tea Party platform, have the answers to the problems of our current issues in this country…….are no smarter than Sarah herself. They themselves have no idea of these same “Basic Knowledge Information” that the rest of us just take for granted and who recognize the con that is the Tea Party.

    So I guess I could summarize that this group having the commonality of “Lacking Knowledge” thinking they have the answers…..don’t really even understand the questions at hand. Simple answers brought forth by simple minds.

    Many of the Tea Party members massaging their own hubris insist on referring to themselves as “Patriots.” With this thought I like to add a quote passed on by Samuel Clemmons defining a Patriot: “The person who can holler the loudest without knowing what he is hollering about.”

  3. Yes, simple answers, simple answers that play to their fears, greed, and lack of thinking about either the question or the answer.

    The simple answers are often put forward by intelligent people for the purpose of manipulating others and getting them to vote against their own self-interest.
