YouTube Person Proves Teabaggers Are Very Serious Political Force

by Ken Layne


Whoa, do you like Elvis Presley or Sarah “Pall-en”? Well then you will like this fellow at least twice as much as those things, because of Freedom. Just need to tune up this here eBay guitar a little better and it’s all gonna happen, Democrats gonna weep.

If the teabaggers take as long as this guy gets ready to play I’ll be far away living on a remote island by then. What is up with those god-awful paintings in the background? Seems socialist to me.

thehelveticascenario March 26, 2010 at 9:42 am

Best part might be his comments along with the video:
“I HOPE THE TEA PARTY STEAMROLLS THE DEMOS OUT OF OFFICE AND THEN FINES THEM ONE YEAR SALARY FOR THE ONE YEAR OF UNAMERICAN BALONEY. GO SARAH PALIN GO !!! THIS IS AMERICA NOT CHINA OR RUSSIA OR NAZI GERMANY OR VENEZUELA. LETS TAKE AMERICA BACK THIS NOVEMBER AND IN THE NEXT PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION !!!! NEVER IN A MILLION YEARS DID I EVER THINK OUR OWN GOVERNMENT WOULD THREATEN TO FINE AND JAIL US WITH LEGISTATION
HOW REVOLTING !!! SO…LET’S GO FOR IT !!!!! FREEEEEDOMMMMMMMM !!!!!!!!(REMEMBER THAT MOVIE ABOUT THE ENGLISH MESSING WITH THE SCOTS ? BRAVE HEART WITH MEL GIBSON !!
WE ARE ALL NOW POLITICAL BRAVE HEARTS ABOUT TO VOTE OUT ALL THE CONFUSED DEMOCRATS WHO VOTED YES FOR A FINE IN THE HEALTH CARE BILL) (IF THEY WOULD SIMPLY REMOVE THE FINE EVERYONE WOULD BE HAPPY!) I AM THINKING MEDICARE FOR EVERYONE IS THE BEST SOLUTION. …CAN SOME ONE START A CELL PHONE TEXT VOTE TO SEE HOW MANY AMERICANS WANT THE FINE PART REMOVED? MAYBE THE TEA PARTY CAN IMPLEMENT THE CELL PHONE VOTE.”

Also, one of his tags is “Orbinson”.

memzilla March 26, 2010 at 9:43 am

[re=541192]montyburns4prez[/re]: Yeah, there’s an awful lot of RED in those pictures.

Roy Orbison FAIL. Also.

x111e7thst March 26, 2010 at 9:46 am

Verily he is like Johnny Cash come again in Glory. He will teabag us all, each and every one.

forgracie March 26, 2010 at 9:48 am

I wonder how he enjoys his socialized (Medicare) medicine? It should save him enough to buy a tuner…

Mr Blifil March 26, 2010 at 9:48 am

And the paintings stare blankly in mute horror, his only companions. Please god, don’t anybody break it to this poor Beckett character locked in the nightmare of his own soul that “rock and roll” and “rhythm and blues” were invented by teh blax. It might steamroll him.

themercenary March 26, 2010 at 9:48 am

Good God, it should not take that long to tune a damn guitar.

proudgrampa March 26, 2010 at 9:49 am

WTF?

Uhmm.. Good disguise but I think that’s Grassley!

Aflac Shrugged March 26, 2010 at 9:52 am

Jesus. And I thought our folksingers were irritating.

Also, what’s with the watercolor tribute to Lauren Ambrose in the background?

Katydid March 26, 2010 at 9:53 am

God, Don Imus has really gone Fox, hasn’t he?

And what is that “art” on the wall behind him? Frieda Kahlo’s Deranged Period?

ForTheTurnstiles March 26, 2010 at 9:53 am

[re=541197]Mr Blifil[/re]: “Honky” tonk is the “honky” version of tonk music (“tonk” was a term for a tavern where blues music was played in black vernacular English)…

So yeah, this guy’s got a leg up on the “honky” thing at least.

Prommie March 26, 2010 at 9:55 am

Snarkless, I note that he would be OK with medicare for all. Can you imagine, the teabaggers are so confused, they hate the commie HCR Bill because its not socialist enough? And yet, well, he’s right, on that one.

Marxist-Leninist Papist March 26, 2010 at 9:56 am

“WE ARE ALL NOW POLITICAL BRAVE HEARTS ABOUT TO VOTE OUT ALL THE CONFUSED DEMOCRATS WHO VOTED YES FOR A FINE IN THE HEALTH CARE BILL) (IF THEY WOULD SIMPLY REMOVE THE FINE EVERYONE WOULD BE HAPPY!) I AM THINKING MEDICARE FOR EVERYONE IS THE BEST SOLUTION. …CAN SOME ONE START A CELL PHONE TEXT VOTE TO SEE HOW MANY AMERICANS WANT THE FINE PART REMOVED? MAYBE THE TEA PARTY CAN IMPLEMENT THE CELL PHONE VOTE.”
Clearly someone other then the Democrats is confused. And I am talking about “I think I am fucking Napoleon and Jesus Christ” type confused.
Seriously, what the HELL? These people seem to have themselves confused with every actually oppessed and/or disenfranchised group in history-black slaves, Holocaust victims, Gulag prisoners, medieval peasants… They seem to want be anyone but their sorry ass selves.

One sentence synopsis please.

RPolanski March 26, 2010 at 10:05 am

Join us all in Searchlight, Nevada at the Searchlight Nugget Casino. We’ll sit on our barstools in front of the 1-armed bandit, smoke Marlboros, drink beer and bitch about the gubbmint. Later, we can mosey on over to the $1.99 buffet and git us some prime rib, chickin mcnuggets, tater salad, and freedom fries. Then we’ll bitch a little more agin’ the gubbmint. Then we’ll all go over to the ATM and git out some more gamblin’ cash out’n our bank accounts with whutever’s left out’n our soshul security checks. Good thing Medicare’s payin’ for my portable oxygen tank so’s I can keep playin’ slots non-stop.

iburl March 26, 2010 at 10:06 am

If you spend the first 150 seconds of your YouTube video tuning your guitar shouldn’t it be in tune after that enthrallung process? Or am I just being a commie fascist about being able to tune?

Ruhe March 26, 2010 at 10:08 am

[re=541193]thehelveticascenario[/re]: The guy is a plant, right? “I am thinking medicare for everyone is the best solution.” That can’t sit well with the rest of the teabaggers, unless of course, as has been said here often by many commenters, the real issue for the baggers isn’t the “socialized” part of socialized medicine, it’s the “hey, did you realize the president who signed that bill is a black guy” part.

Neilist March 26, 2010 at 10:08 am

Only someone assuming his audience is grade school dropouts or druggies or both would feel the need to explain what “scoring” means. At length.

And lo, in 171 seconds, this man has irreparably damaged the Internet, music, video, universal voting, the First Amendment, and life itself.

Also, all of a sudden every Republican against the bill is a constitutional expert! There must a be copies on the back of Bojangles menus.

The man in the polo windbreaker, fancy sunglasses and cowboy hat is stirring my soul with his songs of freedom!

His piano is out of tune, he has no sense of pitch so pushed his gheetuhr even further out of whack. Sorta like how most Tee Bees get to where they got. Start with something silly, use yer keen intellect, not, and whoopie you’ve got something even worse.

[re=541196]forgracie[/re] is spot on, he needs to start savin’ his pennies an get one them eehlectrawnic tooners. Lefty Wilbury, Orbison, is rolling in his grave.

The goggles? For anonymity or coolness? Or simply to “enhance” his ‘tard quotient? So many questions, I have.

GoinGreen March 26, 2010 at 10:24 am

[re=541208]Prommie[/re]: I was thinking the same thing – do they want communism or socialism? If they are only pissed off about the fine (which probably is unconstitutional anyway), then they are now for the gummint giving out insurance like a big ole hunk o’ cheese! Congrats teabaggers, you were the 1st to be “for it before I was against it!!”

norbizness March 26, 2010 at 10:34 am

[re=541205]Katydid[/re]: On the plus side, perhaps Imus will (without benefit of a mirror) see himself as we all see him (a ridiculous prat) and bury himself in a shallow grave.

Aquannissiwamissoo March 26, 2010 at 10:55 am

[re=541225]Neilist[/re]: We can do without the threats of shooting someone, thanks. Please take it to your 7-11 where you buy your scratch tickets and discounted Moxie energy drink.

[re=541198]themercenary[/re]: You’re not supposed to put steel strings on that kind of guitar, are you?

Popping the collar to hide the turkey neck seems a little fey and vain, also.

Ducksworthy March 26, 2010 at 11:00 am

I’m inspired. I going to the next tea bag rally with a MEDICARE FOR ALL poster. On a (heavy) stick.

Mr Blifil March 26, 2010 at 11:14 am

[re=541231]ella[/re]: He wants to be all that, is what. It’s designed to be a combo YouTube guitar tutorial, political rant, chat with Gramps, keening blues testimonial, and rallying cry. The only think he forgot to do was cut a hole in the mouth of one of his portrait subjects and fuck it, so he could be on RedTube.

Katydid March 26, 2010 at 11:27 am

[re=541281]norbizness[/re]: I’ve had a theory for some time that Imus is a Zombie, and his grave musta been shallow indeed.

blkblt March 26, 2010 at 11:29 am

Didn’t James Taylor make this song kind of famous? Isn’t he more liberal than Nancy Pelosi and Al Franken wadded up and rolled in Paul Wellstone’s ashes?
He is however a churnin’ urn of burnin’ funk.

El Pinche March 26, 2010 at 11:30 am

It’s ALL-CAPS in the key of retard.

stanpan March 26, 2010 at 11:31 am

Wow, Esteban is both a guitar teacher and an artist! I look forward to future infomercials spotlighting his versatility.

kth March 26, 2010 at 11:40 am

[re=541394]blkblt[/re]: James Taylor wrote the song and first recorded it. The King started covering it in his concerts around 1970, and it was in the “Aloha From Hawaii: Via Satellite” TV special, where this RV ghetto denizen probably first heard it.

The song was, of course, intended as a parody of the cock-strutting blooz-rock of the era, a joke which Elvis may or may not have gotten, and this guy definitely didn’t.

fork-wielding maniac March 26, 2010 at 11:53 am

“Well then you will like this fellow at least twice as much as those things”

my public education is kind of far behind me now, but if i recall correctly,

2 X 0 = 0

what happens when you multiply negative numbers?

also, now i have to go get my socialist grade school textbook on masturbation and rub out an easy one while i remember the lectures on how to be a gay.

fork-wielding maniac March 26, 2010 at 11:57 am

[re=541197]Mr Blifil[/re]: “And the paintings stare blankly in mute horror, his only companions.”

is that little red riding hood, or some hillbilly shemale’s hair-helmet?

in any case, those are some damned fine watercolors. this guy is a real renaissance man. art? wait. that doesn’t sound very ‘murkin. sounds kind of french.

RoscoePColtraine March 26, 2010 at 12:02 pm

Dear Teaparty Geee-tar Guy,

You do realize that the tuning phase of playing a string instrument needs to take as long as necessary to actually tune each string? We don’t mind waiting, some of us feel it’s worth the time.

Roscoe

P.S. I did find the tuning portion of the video to be the most entertaining part, fwiw.

slappypaddy March 26, 2010 at 12:07 pm

the meltdown continues. and what did that man say? he’s “scarring pigs” so they won’t slip out of his hands? did i get that right? anybody else hear that?

slappypaddy March 26, 2010 at 12:10 pm

[re=541430]fork-wielding maniac[/re]: “what happens when you multiply negative numbers?”

you open up a rift in the space-time continuum, out of which pour ghostly figures of confusion, strung out on tea. don’t do it. negative numbers should only be multiplied under carefully controlled laboratory conditions.

herpezhilton March 26, 2010 at 12:13 pm

You know it’s supporters like these that must be like a dagger in the heart of Sarah Palin. The poor woman wants so badly to be buddy-buddy with glamorous stars, but, alas, this is the caliber of showbiz talent she attracts. Maybe SNL will call you again someday, Sarah, and they’ll let you try your stand-up routine you perfected on The Tonight Show. Keep hope alive.

“I think that if white people are going to burn down black churches, then black people ought to burn down the House Of Blues. What a disgrace that fucking place is. They ought to call it the House Of Lame White Motherfuckers…it’s a fucking sacrilege. In the first place, white people got noooooo business playing the blues ever. At all. Under any circumstances. Ever, ever, ever.

“What the fuck do white people have to be blue about? Banana Republic ran out of khakis? The espresso machine is jammed?? Hootie & the Blowfish are breaking up??? Shit, white people ought to understand their job is to give people the blues, not to get them.” –George Carlin
