Barack Obama ‘Bin’ Lyin’, GEDDIT? (Bin Laden, Africa, Etc.)

And you know where LYINS live, right???? (Africa)
Teabaggers and their home-made signs, so awesome! Way to spell “again,” too! (Does “agin” mean something racist? We cannot keep up.) Thanks to Wonkette operative “C.T.” for going outside and taking this picture of America’s New Freedom Fighters. Send more, everybody! Because Newell is apparently dead for reals. (And why is there a cartoon George W. Bush on the sign?)

  1. Chain Tattoo

    If this is progress, why does it feel like 1984? I can just feel Zombie Gipper Reagan getting ready for his second term.

  2. comicbookguy

    We’ve got to send you Back… To The Future!!1!

    Oh wait, that was 1985. Great year for movies.

  3. norbizness

    I’m reserving judgment until I can read the fine print on the featured sign, apparently written in impossibly small letters with barely visible baby blue marker.

  4. JMP

    Yes, Obama’s attempt to better regulate the health care industry is just like a far right fascist government using a foreign war against an ever-shifting enemy and the vague threat of domestic subversives as an excuse to use widespread surveillance and torture of its citizens to maintain absolute control.

    Actually, there’s a certain previous administration that’s a lot closer to 1984.

  5. PabaBritannica

    [re=531466]norbizness[/re]: I immediately thought “but Reagan was president, so everything’s cool right?”

  6. queeraselvis v 2.0

    The guy holding the “1984” sign looks like the Geico Caveman. Those teabaggers — so unintentionally ironic!

  7. norbizness

    [re=531480]JMP[/re]: We all know what’s in Room 101. It’s your greatest fear… AN INTERRACIAL MARRIAGE!

  8. megs

    It’s not smart to congregate in one place, patriots! Nobonobongo will circle the death panel vans and nationalize your government-run health insurance!

  9. queeraselvis v 2.0

    Also, it was nice of the 1984 sign dude to append the word “Orwell’s,” so we wouldn’t think he was a complete illiterate moron. Or at least not illiterate.

  10. The Little Rock

    I think I know what is in Room 101 now. These people. Or Glen Beck. Sarah Palin. Also.

  11. queeraselvis v 2.0

    [re=531485]norbizness[/re]: Heh. Aren’t the teabaggers going to be in for a rude surprise when they meet Ginni Thomas, then?

  12. SayItWithWookies

    Agin is the opposite of fer. As in, you’re either fer it or agin it. And if there’s one thing everybody knows about lyins, they got plenty of fer. In their maines. Like Natalie Maines from the Dixie Chicks. See, it all makes sense now.

  13. JMP

    [re=531472]Chain Tattoo[/re]: I like how the hairy teabagger felt the need to add in the slanted “Orwell’s” before “1984” on his sign. What, was afraid the passer-byes might think he was referring to Van Halen’s 1984 instead?

    Actually, I’d like to see them all go ahead and jump (jump!); off a bridge.

    Now, judging by their fashion sense, it looks like these teabaggers all thought is was 1994.

  14. Troubledog

    There is a bear CAMEL in the woods. For some people the bear CAMEL is easy to see. Others don’t see it at all. Some people say the bear CAMEL is tame. Others say it’s vicious and dangerous. Since no one can really be sure who is right, isn’t it smart to be as strong as the bear CAMEL? If there is a bear CAMEL….

  15. Cranky Little Camperette

    So THAT explains it! There were about a half-dozen sign-toting protesters walking back from the Capitol who stopped to watch the elephants get off the Circus Train (before they parade through the city and tie up rush hour traffic for, like, ever. The elephants, that is, not the protesters).

    I was trying to figure out why they were carrying the signs: Were they protesting elephants? ‘Cuz wherever there’s circus elephants, there’s usually PETA, but they didn’t look crunchy enough. Or maybe this was some kind of symbolic political performance art I just didn’t get, but this crowd didn’t look like they were all that subtle. I just figured, hell, it’s Washington — someone’s always bitching about something, usually with really crudely made signage.

    So I chose the right circus to watch, apparently.

  16. Extemporanus

    Brave work, C.T., and may you rest in peace!

    It’s a shame you were only able to take one photo before getting all eated apart by the teabagging fleshmob, or you might’ve gotten a shot of this mass-produced sign depicting Obama in a coffin that was all over the fucking place.

  17. BOOBIES!

    The young guys grandparents’ must be paying them to stand there and hold signs because there is no way they rolled out of bed this morning and decided it would be cool to stand outside with a bunch of teabaggers and protest something.

  18. cattdance

    [re=531470]Buzz Feedback[/re]: EXACTLY!!! Nothing better to do than hang out on street corners causing a public nuisance.

  19. RoscoePColtraine

    I’d like to remind all you elitist snobs here that spellin’ the word “agin” is used all the time in highbrow circles. Ever see the script of the broadway musical Oklahoma!? Ever read the works of one Mark Fucking Twain? I’m sure this is what the erudite woman at the rally was trying for. I’m certain of it.

  20. Gumboz1953

    [re=531496]JMP[/re]: He thinks the YouTube generation might think 1984 had something to do with that blonde bitch, a sledgehammer, and a new computer from Apple.

    God, history do repeat itself, don’t it.

  21. gurukalehuru

    The guy in the John Deere hat and the sunglasses is just passing through. Or maybe he’s Secret Service.

  22. x111e7thst

    [re=531494]queeraselvis v 2.0[/re]: I doubt she has any intention of standing around waving a sign with the losers. Too busy over a Liberty Central adding up the corporate contributions.

  23. Darkness

    No one deserves our (government sponsored and operated at a savings of 17% overhead costs) Medicare ‘cept us Olds. Git yer hands off it! We ain’t sharin! Only a soviet czarist nazi fascist would let 45 year olds buy into MY program and make me sher it! Dad gum it!

  24. JMP

    [re=531488]queeraselvis v 2.0[/re]: [re=531490]Extemporanus[/re]: Or, you know, what you two said.

  25. freakishlystrong

    [re=531507]One Yield Regular[/re]: If the Uppity Nigra is fer it, they’re agin it.

  26. ForTheTurnstiles

    [re=531480]JMP[/re]: Shit bro, we’ve always been at war with Eurasia. I mean terror.

  27. The Little Rock

    [re=531511]southern mark smith[/re]: More “quotation marks” and bad maths??? That “is” scary. “Revolt” now!

  28. magic titty

    No no. ‘Bin’ doesn’t rhyme with ‘again’ unless you take the ‘a’ out. Get it now? Me neither.

    Stephen King looks like shit, btw.

  29. Prairie Flower

    Has anyone checked Newell’s balcony? Maybe he’s out there, in his skivvies, locked out again.

  30. Mustang

    It’s been a while since I read 1984, but wouldn’t all the teabaggers have been terminated by the Thought Police by now if Obama was Big Brother?

  31. ForTheTurnstiles

    [re=531526]PsycGirl[/re]: That may be the case, but I got that fuckin “Panama” song stuck in my head. Again.

  32. Extemporanus

    [re=531501]Extemporanus[/re]: I just realized that he’s supposed to be
    “Count Barackula”d rising from the dead to suck all our moniez from the holy hoo-haws of all our white womenz.

    But seriously, shouldn’t he at least have fangs, or a bat, or something? ‘Cause that lame ass little cape cowl just ain’t cuttin’ it on the “satirical potrayal of a black president who we wish were dead” tip.


    [re=531480]JMP[/re]: That was fucking brill.

    So, question, where all the melanin at?

  34. Extemporanus

    [re=531509]soundoff[/re]: Gin = Ginni Thomas!

    [re=531526]PsycGirl[/re]: I’M SORRY OK?! I THOUGHT THERE WAS MORE!! FUUUCCKKK!!

  35. mercure

    There are a bunch of the photos on Huff Post, my personal favourite being a guy wearing:

    – a fuzzy blue wizard’s hat
    – a lime green t-shirt with a face of a smiling cyclops on it
    – what looks like a tie-dye shirt under the t-shirt
    – boxer shorts, either on the outside, or hiked up so high the waistband is visible, and
    – best of all, carrying a dustmop with a sign taped to it saying, “America is Watching”

    With all of that, I don’t really need to provide any additional snark.

  36. nappyduggs


    Maybe 1964? You know, when Barry Goldwater was all “in your heart you know I’m right” and LBJ was all “in your guts you know these paranoid shit-eaters are completely nuts.”

  37. JMP

    [re=531513]gurukalehuru[/re]: The man in the sunglasses, along with the lady with the “bin lyin'” sign, really just came there because they were looking for younger potential lovers, and didn’t realize the rest of the crowd would be other olds. But that’s OK, there’s a certain web site where they can find what they’re looking for.

  38. BlueStateLiberal

    Translation: we’re mad because McCrazy lost and a black man is president. And we can’t spell or think straight.

  39. GOPCrusher

    Does it count, when you bring your kids, to help fill up the teeming masses?
    I’m still confused by this new math that has Tens of Teabaggers=Majority of Americans.

  40. ForTheTurnstiles

    [re=531555]Extemporanus[/re]: Shame of it is that I *am* the teacher, and would enjoy having sex with someone besides myself sometimes. Gr.

  41. Flanders

    How is it that when you are about to really insult someone without basis, it’s all cool and shit so long as you preface it by “with all due respect”?

  42. Jukesgrrl

    They may as well spell in that wingnutty way since they’re only talking to each other.

  43. RoscoePColtraine

    [re=531577]Flanders[/re]: He’s trying to come off as reasonable? Beats the hell outta me.

  44. sati demise

    [re=531526]PsycGirl[/re]: we could mix it with meth.

    what this Obama lyin’ ’bout now? do tell.

  45. Cape Clod

    [re=531577]Flanders[/re]: With all due respect. Obama’s plans resembles “Brave New World” far more than “1984.” They would know that if they read anything, which they don’t, because they are idiots.

  46. One Toke Over The Line

    If back in 1967 some 55+ dude said I would be bad mouthin protesters trying to save their country in 2010, I’d a thought he was nuts. Wheels within wheels.

  47. JMP

    [re=531560]Snarkalicious[/re]: Today, we all have useless English Lit degrees.

    (Actually, I have a similarly useless Philosophy degree.)

  48. ttommyunger

    “1984”? more like “Blazing Saddles”… (The Sheriff is near!)… Go to room 101 at the Austin Hilton and listen outside the door; you may hear Gov. “Perfect Hair Forever” giving Sarah Palin a good old fashioned Texas Horse-Fucking while the First Dude is jerking off in a igloo somewhere up North. And no, they re not all unemployed or unemployable. A close inspection would reveal 95% of these assholes either on SS Disability, unemployment insurance, or Workman’s Comp, AND their health care needs being met by COBRA, Medicaid, VA or Medicare. If Clarence and his lovely bride ARE copulating in Room 102, you can bet they are both fantasizing about conservative uber-cunt Phyllis Shlafly while doing so.

  49. Jukesgrrl

    [re=531661]ttommyunger[/re]: Good comment except for the error about Gov. “Perfect Hair Forever.” He’d much rather give TODD the good old fashioned Texas Horse-Fucking.

  50. El Pinche

    [re=531577]Flanders[/re]: Sometimes, it’s a miss.
    With all due respect, you are sperm burping road whore.

    Looks like someone offered that young whippersnapper some free weed to hold a stupid sign. Employment is on the rise!!

  51. natteringnabomb

    That 1984 guy was born out of necessity.His daddy needed extra dependants to make up for coservative Ronnie the god Reagan’s tax act of 1986.Another political cosequence.
