The teabagging controversy grows baggier by the hour, as pretty much every loser in 2006, 2008 and life in general is in a desperate battle to prove they started the tea-bag craze. Forgetting for a moment that the people who “started” the tea-party nonsense were actually greedy Englishmen of the British Empire’s colony of Taxachusetts way back in 1773, this is one thing we are going to totally give to the Paultards. They started it. We were there, man. We were there.
Sort of, anyway. In December of 2007, your editor heard about a wonderful idea hatched (of course) on RonPaulForums.com — they wanted to rent an advertising blimp and put “Google Ron Paul” on one side and that dumb “ReLOVE(backwards)ution” on the other side.
And then they raised like $200,000 online in a few days, and your editor was soon on his way to Elizabeth City, North Carolina, where there was some World War II blimp hangar now used by a private airship company.
This is from your editor’s RADAR Magazine story about the ultimately failed attempt to ride the blimp to Washington and then to Boston, for the stated purpose of dumping tea into Boston Harbor, as a protest, against the big-spending Republicans, particularly the hated George W. Bush:
The original flight plan was a thing of goofy beauty: The airship would cruise over Washington, DC, the nucleus of Imperial America, land in northern Virginia for a triumphant rally, then fly to New York City to buzz the evil Federal Reserve Bank on Wall Street. From there it would cruise to Boston to reenact the original Tea Party by tossing boxes of tea into the harbor from hundreds of feet in the air, while crowds of Paul supporters and journalists looked on in wonder. Finally, there would be a three-week-long crisscrossing tour of the New Hampshire skies. Up until January 8, the date of the all-important primary in the Granite State, the great craft would mercilessly harass the other candidates from the air.
It was understood by everyone else on the Ron Paul discussion forums that the blimp would forever change America. Eyes would be opened. The “sheeple” would see the truth. All the Paulians had to do was cough up $200,000 by December 7 for a month’s blimp rental from Airship Management Services in Elizabeth City.
There. Stop arguing. Paultards for the win. Let the teabagging continue, but without Republicans, who were the target. GO RON PAUL.
Here’s the fun Ron Paul blimp from the Paultard Concert to, um, protest the St. Paul GOP convention:
