Teabaggers Boo John Cornyn Even Though He’s the Only Senator For Freedom

  teabagging in our time


You people keep asking us for Teabagger July 4th video and, well, we can’t really find any clips! It’s as if the whole Teabagging Craze died with the 500 people who started it, on April 15, to protest George W. Bush’s tax cuts. But here’s the “traitor” and bloated wingnut John Cornyn being booed by some teabaggers in some place or another. Looks fun! This Crooks & Liars video looks ever less fun, if you can imagine such a thing.

    Oh, do go to 1:53 in the C&L video. When you join the OathKeepers, you can, among other things, pledge not to “obey any order to blockade American cities, thus turning them into concentration camps.” Other parts of the Oath:
    – I will not obey any order to worship the Insect God.
    – I will not obey any order to take the rifle out of Charlton Heston’s cold dead hands.
    – I will not obey any order to “Imagine there’s no heaven.”
    – I will not obey any order to pay you Tuesday for a hamburger today.
    – I will not obey any order to use the 2010 census to round up and persecute philatelists.

    As much of an asshole as the senator may be, he looks positively saintly compared to his heckling electorate. God forbid he and his ilk should be our last rampart against the homicidal crazies.

    Oh noes! The rabbit’s got the gun! Duck!

    Seriously, some of these GOP slimeballs that thought that they could ride the bull that is Tea Party Nation are damned fools. This thing is so beyond them that it’s not even funny. The Republican Party is eating itself from the inside out, and it’s a beautiful disaster, in my not so humble opinion.

    I said it somewhere else on here, but watch Palin try and herd these cats; just watch. The Pied Piper of Wasilla is going to lead her cat-rats right into the Bering Strait.

    Ken, what are you doing not passed out from excessive bourbon by 2:09 in the morning? You’re losing your journalistic edge.

    For a second I thought these nutlickers were booing him for the Iraq war vote or financial deregulation or something. But no, stimulus. Boo him for your unemployment check, or else boo him for the infrastructure you used to travel to your furry convention, you fucking geeks.

    Also, on the C&L video, I did not have a problem with the 10 Orders We Will Not Follow thingy, especially the part about not invading Texas once it chooses to secede. But who is that witch at the end? She would have been burned at the stake during the good ole days.

    This was the clown version of the Independence Day teabagging parties in Austin. The real one was held the day before, and it prohibited politicians from speaking. Which may have had something to do with the stupendously low turnout of maybe over 200 people. However, from the looks of this video, it appears the no-politicians-speak rule was implemented for their own good. If only this commercialized, sellout of a teabagging party had adhered to the same rules, Cornyn and Governor Perry would not have been booed.

    Also, most of the braying herd of morbidly obese diabetic cows heard booing here don’t live in Austin proper. They’ve driven their 20-year-old Suburbans from north of town in Williamson County where the real Texans, i.e. the idiot lunatic morans who voted for Cornyn and Perry in the first place, live.

    This is what happens when the GOP base shrivels to the point where it is co-extensive with the survivalist, militia movement.

    Welcome to the Hell of your own making, GOP.

    Ah… yes… left vs right… not truth vs lies…

    Obama has continued with the same exact policies as Bush; McCain would have done exactly the same. You semi-intellectual half wits still buy into the left right fight they have created to keep you entertained. NEWS FLASH: THE DEMS AND REPS ARE DIFFERENT WINGS OF THE SAME PARTY. http://www.infowars.com

    News Flash: The Democrats and the Republicans are two wings of the same party. No matter who is i control the policies remain exactly the same. www i n f o w a r s . c o m

    “Wonkette, if you have the good fortune of not knowing, is a left-liberal site that manages to consider itself cheeky and iconoclastic while endorsing only the most exquisitely conventional, establishment-approved opinions. If you’re not located somewhere along that fantastic spectrum of genius that ranges from Chuck Schumer to Arlen Specter, Wonkette will expose you to the world as the misanthropic imbecile you obviously are….. The Wonkette kids are like the popular group in high school that wanted to belong to the fashionable causes, since that’s what the other popular kids did, but made sure they weren’t too ostentatious in their devotion to those causes. We can’t be too different, you understand. Just cool. Just different enough to be able to sneer at the rest of mankind and its stupid, unenlightened opinions, but not so different that we won’t get invited to cocktail parties at the homes of people who matter.

    Now imagine those people running a website, and you’ve got Wonkette.”

    We sorta like to call him Senator Jubilation T. Cornhole! Did you see his last campaign commercial of him riding around on a horse…best softcore gay porn this year!

  14. charlesdegoal

    [re=356389]wonksucketh[/re]: I can see where this would be a fitting comment on behalf of Taki, an aging snob known to have married assorted members of the European nobility. To him, the left and the right are obviously the same, since both are vaguely opposed to monarchy and its time-honored values.
    Quoting from the piece in your “comment” is a bit lame, however. Tacky, even.

    I attended the T-Sack party held in Austin the day prior to the July 4th event. Maybe 200 people max. 195% white, middle aged and elderly, all joined together to celebrate their shared fear of pretty much everything. They hate Obama so much, but their complaints are vague. Also, it seems they picture all non-conservatives as spending all day collecting welfare and using it to pay for late term abortions performed by gay illegals. I did get to speak with Joe the Plumber for a few minutes and he was nice. He oozes a certain Mr Clean on steriods type of charm that I’m certain conservatives of both sexes find attractive. All in all, a sad affair, kind of reminded me why I don’t attend my family reunions .

    [re=356409]Zuluaskono[/re]: Interesting observation, but I don’t have time to read it all, since I have to get to the post office to pickup today’s welfare check and I have to take my cat for an abortion.

    [re=356387]Serolf Divad[/re]: Hey, survivalists have some useful info. A while ago, I was googling(actually yahooing) how to sprout seeds and beans(reliving my youth in the late 60′s and early 70s) and the answer came up on a survivalist site. They are storing dried beans and seeds and sprouting will be a way to make live food- after the Palin/Brownback win in 2040.

    There are steps there at the Capitol building…. WHY IS HE NOT BEING THROWN DOWN THEM?!?

    I guess Fox News was too busy analyzing Gov. Moosetits brilliant career strategy this weekend to promote the 4th of July Teabag festival.

  21. Norbert

    After reading David Brooks today, I have decided that he is the obvious choice to do some embedded journalism within the rank-and-file of the teabag movement.

  22. finallyhappy

    [re=356446]Norbert[/re]: Can’t do- like me, he is obviously Jewish and we know teabaggers only trust fundementalists like themselves. Second, while most teabaggers are virtually illiterate- there could be a few people who have read about Brooks on the internets and know he is not a fan of Caribou Barbie. Thirdly, he works for that Commie rag, the NYT-although he lives here in Satan’s domain -the metro area of Wash, DC.

    [re=356409]Zuluaskono[/re]: I’m sorry we weren’t able to meet Friday morning at the teabagging shindig in Austin. Would’ve been nice to have someone to knowingly smirk with while my wife & I chronicled the proceedings. Also, seeing as how you’re going by a name starting with ‘zulu,’ you wouldn’t happen to be the one black guy who was there, would you? If so, my wife has a photo of you not blending in.

    T[re=356393]foog[/re]:Hahaha…I’d love to see a Roddy Piper-Keith David-like fight scene in this video (good luck finding a black person, though).

    [re=356454]hobospacejunkie[/re]: I was in Cedar Park for a BBQ then on Lake Travis. Please tell me you’ve got a few pics of me in there as well.

    [re=356389]wonksucketh[/re]: Hm mmmmmm, now that you mention it i can clearly see that everything i have ever believed is in error. Thank you ever so much for helping me find the light. now if you’d be so kind as to help me understand exactly what views i should hold i would be grateful.
    (in bumpersticker form please). ahhhh the relief of no longer being elite.

    [re=356454]hobospacejunkie[/re]: No, that wasn’t me. I was the middle aged white woman roaming around with a camera.

    [re=356454]hobospacejunkie[/re]: I took tons of photos, I wonder which couple you were.
