GOOD SPELLERS  2:26 pm March 16, 2010

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

by Ken Layne

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?)

Are these people unemployed or unemployable?

Sharkey March 16, 2010 at 2:30 pm


Just thought I’d get that out of the way.

Chain Tattoo March 16, 2010 at 2:30 pm

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

comicbookguy March 16, 2010 at 2:33 pm

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

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

norbizness March 16, 2010 at 2:34 pm

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.

give us a bob March 16, 2010 at 2:34 pm

The lyin’ sign is missing the happy face sun in the upper corner.

JMP March 16, 2010 at 2:34 pm

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.

PabaBritannica March 16, 2010 at 2:34 pm

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

queeraselvis v 2.0 March 16, 2010 at 2:34 pm

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

queeraselvis v 2.0 March 16, 2010 at 2:38 pm

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.

geminisunmars March 16, 2010 at 2:38 pm

But I thought their whole point was to go back to 1984, or was it 1954?

SayItWithWookies March 16, 2010 at 2:41 pm

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.

JMP March 16, 2010 at 2:43 pm

[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.

ManchuCandidate March 16, 2010 at 2:43 pm

Wow look at the throngs. Oh wait, that’s just grass blades.

Troubledog March 16, 2010 at 2:44 pm

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….

Cranky Little Camperette March 16, 2010 at 2:45 pm

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.

Extemporanus March 16, 2010 at 2:45 pm

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.

BOOBIES! March 16, 2010 at 2:45 pm

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.

RoscoePColtraine March 16, 2010 at 2:48 pm

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.

mercure March 16, 2010 at 3:09 pm

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.

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.”

JMP March 16, 2010 at 3:11 pm

[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.

“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.
