Tea for Two

Here and there small groups of misinformed and manipulated citizens are gathering today throughout this great land for the purpose of dropping tea bags into liquids. They have been told by Fox News and a billionaires’ lobbyist named Dick Armey that this orgy of tea bagging will put an end to taxation with representation. Or something.

Most of the foot soldiers in this army of Dick’s seem not to know that tea bagging has a very specific meaning in the adult entertainment world, a meaning which has nothing to do with relieving the anguish of the very richest Americans at the prospect of being taxed once more at the same rate that existed the last time the nation’s budget was balanced.

Nor are most of these poor saps likely to be aware that their movement has its very own song, like The Internationale, or Boola Boola. The tea baggers’ fight song is called “I Love It When They Bounce,” and Karen Marie has been kind enough to call it to our attention. Here it is, performed by Supafloss:

They should be out shopping, like real Americans.

I think the real problem and the real grievance is the way in which they received their "stimulus". A smaller bite in the payroll withholding tax is not the same to them as an additional check from the government. It doesn't matter that their tax refund will be larger this year. There's too much nuance in that. There are too many variables for them to handle. If they're running true to form, most of them are living on maxed-out credit in "right to work" conditions, making payments on houses that are approaching negative equity. What they needed was a separate check, in addition to the refund check, with a lump sum they could spend right away. The larger the sum, the better.

Without question, that is more than I needed to know...
