Op-Ed columnist, Washington Post Writers GroupWHY IS THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TAKING OUR TEA BAGS? “The lower classes and uneducated swarms seem to be the primary target for this ‘collection by coercion,’ in which the Senate and House of Representatives have dug in their heels and embarked on a crusade to take all the tea bags from our most humble citizens.” [AOL Political Machine]

  1. hmm, I appear to have been banned from AOL commenting. Or maybe I need to have some youngster graph out the proper commenting instructions for me.

  2. The Obama administration is taking our tea bags because (a) tea is an effete drink for girly men (b) Obama is a fascist (c) Fascism is an ideology that prizes masculinity, athleticism, bravery, and strength. Obama has no time for you pansy tea-drinkers. In fact, tomorrow you will all be rounded up and shipped to gay old England.

  3. I admire you, Ken, and it’s not snark. I know you’re incredibly intelligent. But are you suicidal? I know the world is hard, but death by wingnut sill sounds terrible. Please consider taking down your picture. One of those crazy fuckers might actually try to kill you. I thought about that before, but I didn’t say anything.

    Dude, I’m not crazy enough to post a picture at my blog. Put an address with it and it would be like Grosse Pointe Blank in my neighborhood. The wingnuts hate me, a lot. I got lots of death-mail before I shut it off. It was creeping me out.

    I’m just saying. The world would lose a great wit if something bad happened to you.

  4. Pretty much off topic, but my future career in Hollywood is at stake, and I need advice from my sage Wonketteer friends, whom I trust implicitly:

    Am I enough of a look-alike to play the title role when they make Wonked: The Ken Layne Story

    Or should I settle for the Andy Partridge part in XTC – Drums, Wires & Pop Genius? My agent will give all due consideration to your thoughtful answers.

  5. [re=286481]2druk2phluq[/re]: Hahaha the only e-mails other than tips that I get are death threats and diatribes about what a stupid asshole I am. It’s really great being a stupid asshole.

  6. Holy crap! I realize that I am new to Wonkette and all. But, Ken is SYNDICATED????

    de Tocqueville meets Horatio Alger! I thought all of that stuff was myth!

    On this special day, no holds barred. I am opening a bottle of Thunderbird.

  7. Very creepy watching Rachel and that really cute red head from the Beast,last night talking about tea bagging.

    Also very hot, also.

  8. [re=286495]Scandinavian Fetus[/re]: Bow down in homage, novice. Our Ken totally rocks teh internets.

    I understand he makes a pretty tasty chili-cheese dip, too. Yum!

  9. [re=286521]Lascauxcaveman[/re]: I thought we were supposed to be snarky on this site?

    Why do you think that I have spent so much time “lurking” before commenting?

    Of course Ken is awesome. Where else can people speak uncensored within a collective of thoughtful, sharp individuals based upon great prompts?

    We have to roast Ken occasionally, too, right?

    Enough sobriety….I want to have Carrot Top’s baby and I am a dude.

    Obama must be STOPPED !
    The “Black Fool” is foaming at the mouth with drunken
    power…! And all you liberals who support him…
    ….you are all deaf and blind….!

    And Jacklyn is just another Ignorant Slut!

  11. [re=286553]Scandinavian Fetus[/re]: Um, my mock-adulation was supposed to be snark, too. (Not that I don’t think our lord and master Ken isn’t totally swell; I do.)

    Must make a note to be less subtle in the future.

  12. Looks like the AOL-Moran interrelationship is alive and well.

    What’s really bad are the people that take all the comments seriously, even when the snark factor should be obvious to the most humor impaired. Sheesh.

  13. [re=286499]iwillsavethispatient[/re]: I think he’s real. However, he was the first real aoler, and he was the sixth poster, which makes me think Ken’s little column has jumped the shark. Still, thank god for Alabama Patriot and his ilk.

  14. This Layne creetin, with his Wonknete site, like so many other AMERICA HATERS and MARXISTS is trying to demoralize and DEMONIZE true Americans with his elitist, sarcastic “comments” and “humor”. His goal and those of of other socialist-NEW WORLD ORDER (NWO) elites is to his intimidate us into silence by collective embarassment while the homosexual / collectivist / atheist agenda plays out and secular humanism / marxism eventually comes over the country and smothers our way of life. We see this already in the Peoples Republic of Vermont. Its a form of beahaviorial control developed by the freudians and scientologists, perfected by the NKV in Bulgaria (working for their KGB masters including PUTIN) and now used by our “leader” and his followers. Real Americans like Sara, Michele and Glenn are being humiliated all the time with allegations that they are “wackos” thereby discreting their messages or they have, like Sara, their families humiliated by inuendo and comments about in-breeding (disgusting!) and what they wear. HUMILIATION = CONTROL = FASCISM. Oh and yes, Ken, we know all about “teabagging” and its hip hop connatations.

    Whichever one of you wrote that is a genius. I almost thought that was real. Rou gave yourself away, though, with the part about “Real Americans.”

  15. ALEX SAYZ: “Tea is, to wit, an urbane and sophisticated beverage. I particularly enjoy “a little cup o’ Lipton” when perusing the great books I keep in my personal library. There is nothing quite like reading the prose of our finest authors while sipping daintily from my Queen Elizabeth Jubilee tea mug, which I purchased so many years ago In England, not far from the storied “Abbey Road” recording studio owned by the Beatles.

    I simply do not care for coffee.”

    And that, my friends, is what we call a double reverse Noonington with a twist. Way to stick the landing, my adorable bespectacled desert bear.

  16. Over 120 comments so far. This one’s a big hit, with a variety of cranks, plus our very own personal feud between Tina & CJ, whose life story we all now know. I love watching the powerless losers degenerate into screaming, impotent little fuckbags. It warms my heart, especially knowing that just a mere 2-3 years ago these cretins thought they would rule the world forever.

  17. Since it seems I’ve been banned by AOL commenting, if this doesn’t show up, feel free to re-post:


    Obambi has told the ACORNS and the IRS to go to the TEA BAG PARTIES nationwide. They will be trying to take your names and signatures. They have the ability to record cell phone numbers that are in the area and do REVERSE lookups of you. They can WIRETAP you and make you out to be domestic terrorists. They can photograph you (without approval) and use the evidence against you.

    WHAT TO DO: If you must attend TEA BAGGING PARTIES, then (1) Wear a ski mask so they can’t photo or video you (2) Do not sign anything or say your name (come up with code-names) (3) turn off your cellphones and pagers so you cannot be tracked (4) if you must park near the TEA BAG PARTY then be sure to hide your license plate or arrive annonymously by walking.



  18. [re=286926]Bruno[/re]: Looking at the other levels of crazy over there, I can’t imagine what the hell I said before.

    Please someone post something like the above, please…

  19. [re=286926]Bruno[/re]: Bruno — I posted your brilliant warning. As for you being banned by AOL: pardon me if I’m insulting you, but on AOL, at least for me, I post, then I receive an email from AOL inside of which is a link I have to click. Once that’s done my comment appears. Perhaps you’re not receiving the email or it’s going into your junk mailbox?

    Hobo Space Junkie, the height of paranoia, come on now…………………………………………….

    no kathy ( lower case K),
    he’s right. all democrats secretly know that getting repubulicans to teabag was an emmanuel rahm scheme to flush out right wingers for purposes of annihilation. we learned it from the nazi’s when they got jews to register for free ‘showers’. rham knew that all he had to do was plant the word ‘teabagging’ in neoclown media and all neo-conservatives would come running to be the first in line. our master plan is coming along just fine. sssshhhhh!

    kathy12:32AMApr 12th 2009
    Louis, so you think they are out to get the tea parties? LOL I do know the DNC are going to rally at the state capital cities the same time as the Tea Paries. They want to make a statement too.

  21. [re=287081]hobospacejunkie[/re]: Thanks! Brilliant responses. I will have to set up an AOL account from work or some other IP address, I guess (shudder).

  22. [re=287067]hobospacejunkie[/re]: Doh! Spam folder guilt. I will impose a 6 day No-AOL bashing punishment on myself. It also appears that any AOL mail goes straight to Spam. I don’t think I’ll modify my settings.
