Here Is The Poop Man Protesting Poop

by Jim Newell

Is this the infamous Poop Man? Or Poop Lady? Eh, no. Just some other guy stone cold talkin’ about Poop, at today’s midday Obamar protest. Thank you to tipster “Matt,” who “wants to die.”

“d00d” is what he actually meant.

proudgrampa April 15, 2010 at 1:31 pm

Looks like Meghan’s boobs.

Potater April 15, 2010 at 1:33 pm

Erick Erickson’s reservations over telling the Census man how many times he flushes the terlet make sense now.

Extemporanus April 15, 2010 at 1:34 pm

The word “poop” flipped upside down is “boob”.

Coincidence? Or something more sinister

Mild Midwesterner April 15, 2010 at 1:35 pm

“DooDoo” was two letters too long to fit on the sign.

GoinGreen April 15, 2010 at 1:35 pm

Looks like his testimals after teabagging his mustachioed, fatass wife.

GuyClinch April 15, 2010 at 1:35 pm

He looks like he’s about to fling that poop at the Reagan Bldg. He must be one of the librul infiltrators

Way Cool Larry April 15, 2010 at 1:36 pm

is that the same guy who slept with Mitt Romney?

SayItWithWookies April 15, 2010 at 1:37 pm

Pathetically Outclassed Oblivious Protesters.

comicbookguy April 15, 2010 at 1:38 pm

got poop?

Lascauxcaveman April 15, 2010 at 1:39 pm

Hell, who doesn’t love PooP? Dude obviously just supporting Obama’s alternative energy initiative.

Oblios Cap April 15, 2010 at 1:39 pm

Androgrynous Pat goes to Washington?

slappypaddy April 15, 2010 at 1:40 pm

poop and circuses. it worked for the romans, too.

Katydid April 15, 2010 at 1:42 pm

Alls I know is I haven’t seen anyone this obsessed with poop since my kid was 6, when all I had to do to send her into fits of laughter was say, “poop.” She, however, grew out of it, and is now a liberal. Coincidence?

TGY April 15, 2010 at 1:45 pm

Power to the poople!

AxmxZ April 15, 2010 at 1:45 pm

Tea-baggers, coprophiles, – who’s coming to protest next, NAMBLA?

freakishlystrong April 15, 2010 at 1:47 pm

How many millions are there?

V572625694 April 15, 2010 at 1:47 pm

The sign isn’t nearly as irritating as the hat with the cord. What it is it with middle-aged men, often lawyers, whose faces already display signs of every sin they’ve committed in life, but who still want to wear broad-brimmed hats as though they were riding the Australian outback on a bucking bronco? Do they think they look better? Or they won’t keep looking worse? It’s a mystery, but no surprise that a teabagger would do this.

SmutBoffin April 15, 2010 at 1:47 pm

What is: “what I’d rather be wriggling around in”, Mr. Trebek.

Autoo April 15, 2010 at 1:49 pm

[re=557253]Lascauxcaveman[/re]: You got it backwards, boss. He’s dissing the new Pepsi logo

Mr Blifil April 15, 2010 at 1:50 pm

I believe he is farting in our general direction.

nappyduggs April 15, 2010 at 1:51 pm

Dingleberry here is mighty proud of his heritage.

DemmeFatale April 15, 2010 at 1:52 pm

DON’T google it!! (*shudder*)

What does it stand for again?

freakishlystrong April 15, 2010 at 1:55 pm

Maybe cuz poop is brown as well?

Way Cool Larry April 15, 2010 at 1:56 pm

[re=557270]V572625694[/re]: I think it’s some kind of fantasy that they are living in the wild west, and still have a life; might also be a generational thing– when I was a kid, cowboys were COOL!

Lazy Media April 15, 2010 at 1:56 pm

Considering that Georgia Republicans make teabaggers seem like wise statesmen, I can’t IMAGINE the quality of signs down at the Capitol in Atlanta today.

JohnnyMeatworth April 15, 2010 at 1:57 pm

The Juggalos are just getting lazier and lazier….

queeraselvis v 2.0 April 15, 2010 at 1:58 pm

Meh. Needs more dancing bananas.

What Fresh Hell is This? April 15, 2010 at 1:58 pm

Is he for it or against it?

Is it a demand? If so, who does he want to poop?

“Free James Brown” was a clear, definitive statement — which I think we could all agree with. But “Poop”? Just a little bit vague, as far as political philosophies go.

Never develop a theology or political stand that can be put on a bumper sticker or a t-shirt!

OOOO, great t-shirt: “Never develop a theology or political stand that can be put on a bumper sticker or a t-shirt!

[re=557283]Way Cool Larry[/re]:
A lot of these fair-skinned olds also get wise and take to wearing the wide brims after their 2nd or 3rd treatment for skin cancer (more’s the pity.)

V572625694 April 15, 2010 at 2:06 pm

[re=557292]Lascauxcaveman[/re]: Well, all right then, I withdraw the comment before Peggy sues me. Cancer’s no joke.

[re=557283]Way Cool Larry[/re]: Cowboys are cool indeed.

thesheriffisnear April 15, 2010 at 2:10 pm

[re=557260]Katydid[/re]: You are not wrong to recognize the Freudian implications but I think the underlying motivation is penis envy, if you get my drift?

coolcatdaddy April 15, 2010 at 2:10 pm

Ah, TeaBagger Tax Day.

It’s like Woodstock for the Olds, minus the sex and good drugs with bad drugs and shrinking penis added.

sati demise April 15, 2010 at 2:11 pm

Is that a request or a demand, HEENNNGH?

Oblios Cap April 15, 2010 at 2:12 pm


I misread that as “power to the poophole”.

It made me laugh.

Extemporanus April 15, 2010 at 2:19 pm

[re=557307]sati demise[/re]: It’s a warning.

Gramps April 15, 2010 at 2:24 pm

You Might Be A Teabagger if…

1] You think that a president lying about a stain on a dress is far more serious, than a president lying us into a despicable, unnecessary, war.

2] You think the right to life ends at birth; because you’re not your less fortunate brother’s keeper, no way, no how.

3] You complain about being taxed to death but haven’t paid taxes for years.

4] You are part of the 47 percent of Americans that actually pay no federal income tax.

5] You receive Social Security or SSI income from the govmint.

6] You receive your medical insurance thru federally funded Medi Care or you use the local hospital’s emergency room.

7] You are moderately to grossly obese by observing the shouting multitudes, gathered to complain.

8] You are terrified of simple, preventative, health care measures, like moderate exercise.

9] You may think you speak English, but we know you can’t write it; as evidenced by all the misspelled words on your signs and placards.

…and finally:
10] You don’t work for a damn, living, since today is Thursday…!

Mr Blifil April 15, 2010 at 2:25 pm

I will now be forced to bust out my “WRIGGLE” sign…

chaste everywhere April 15, 2010 at 2:27 pm

[re=557260]Katydid[/re]: Oh man (well, y’kno what I mean), do I remember that phase. In my son, that is, and my niece. They went through it at roughly the same time, and I do mean roughly. Myself, I’m not sure I’ve grown out of it yet, and I’m still a librul (coincidence?).

Monsieur Grumpe April 15, 2010 at 2:28 pm

At least it’s not misspelled. This teabagger should be applauded but I wouldn’t shake his hand. Cause, you know, poop.

Hooray For Anything April 15, 2010 at 2:30 pm

Maybe we got it wrong and he’s merely a DC government worker in charge of letting tourists know where they shouldn’t go due to their being dog shit at that particular spot?

maven April 15, 2010 at 2:32 pm

[re=557270]V572625694[/re]: he’s wearing that because his doctor told him he might get skin cancer if he doesn’t. The doctor he’s seeing regularly on medicare.

Extemporanus April 15, 2010 at 2:34 pm

[re=557341]Mr Blifil[/re]: You mean THIS ONE? Or THIS ONE?

Egregious April 15, 2010 at 2:35 pm

Repeal and PASS baby, PASS!

Egregious April 15, 2010 at 2:37 pm

[re=557290]Manos: Hands of Fate[/re]:

Manos, you slayed me with that one.

Extemporanus April 15, 2010 at 2:37 pm

[re=557341]Mr Blifil[/re]: Actually, here’s a Wriggle that’s a little more literal.

Yay civil discourse!!

Lionel Hutz Esq. April 15, 2010 at 2:47 pm

Clearly he is just holding his pro-Obama “dood” sign upside down.

floatingdock April 15, 2010 at 2:48 pm

why am I suddenly reminded of Rick Santorum?

bakeneko April 15, 2010 at 2:52 pm

How come the “Waterboard Obama” lady isn’t wearing this as a t-shirt?
No room left for the “P” on either side of da bOObz?

BOOBIES! April 15, 2010 at 2:59 pm

I don’t think he is a teabagger because he correctly spelled “poop.” I think he is just a tourist looking for the can.

gertrudis April 15, 2010 at 3:09 pm

[re=557263]TGY[/re]: Oblios Cap[/re]: You both made me laugh, thanks!!!

Maybe he’s protesting the White House vegetable garden, which is organic. But he’s mistaken cuz they use compost.

GOPCrusher April 15, 2010 at 3:13 pm

He must be one of those “kinder, gentler” Teabaggers. Didn’t want to look like one of the lunatic fringe. The original sign said “SHIT” and he changed it.

What Fresh Hell is This? April 15, 2010 at 3:16 pm

Vitter is soooo bossy. I’m sure there’s a technical term for that.

Oblios Cap April 15, 2010 at 3:23 pm

Something tells me that a play titled “The Poopman Cometh” won’t be considered an American classic.

Smoke Filled Roommate April 15, 2010 at 3:26 pm

Actually, that’s what he’s selling along with bottled water.

iolanthe April 15, 2010 at 3:48 pm

Saw a Yahoo comment, “We call them Teabaggers because they’re nuts and they’re always in our face!”

snideinplainsight April 15, 2010 at 3:48 pm

He forgot to put “to Obama” somewhere.

Jim89048 April 15, 2010 at 3:50 pm

Poop was probably the only brown in sight at their partay.

Cranky Little Camperette April 15, 2010 at 3:54 pm

[re=557269]freakishlystrong[/re]: Funny you should ask. When I went by Freedom Plaza around 2, there were literally dozens of baggers milling around aimlessly. Maybe 100 total. Maybe. My fave was the guy with the enormous cross covered in gold tinsel garland. I have NO idea what that was about.

I tried to get a shot of the dude sitting in front of the FBI Building, selling Teabagger flags (the “Don’t Tread on Me,” other “embellished” American flags. BTW, it’s totally against the Flag Code to embellish a flag, but why get caught up on details like respect for the flag, right?). Unfortunately the bus I was on started moving before I could snap a pic.

I also wanted a picture of the dude with the protest sign and the lawn chair. What, is this a sit in? You can’t stand for your cause? Then again, I can’t stand your cause, either…

Of course, mandatory ‘bagger lady with her flag taking the socialist, godless, heathen, commie mass transit bus up to the Capitol. Guess it’s ok to subsidize metro but not healthcare?

Also, lots of ‘baggers taking those bike-rickshaw thingies up the Hill. Can’t walk (and looking at some of them, yeah, that was questionable)?

And by the time I got up to the Capitol, there were maybe 200 people on the steps (East side, not even enough people for the West Steps).

So. Very. Meh.

FlownOver April 15, 2010 at 3:55 pm

We’ve seen this guysomewhere before.

weejee April 15, 2010 at 4:02 pm

I think those doo hickies in the middle are sketches of his scuffies. It’s his ‘to do’ list for life at the home (do they know he’s out?). Kinda like guitar strum charts down down up down, ‘cept for this gent it’s “pee step step pee.”

crapshooter102 April 15, 2010 at 4:29 pm

[re=557270]V572625694[/re]: Hey hold on I love the Big Hat. It’s his Brain or lack therof that is scary. Another SS recipent with too much time on his hands.

Lawndarts April 15, 2010 at 6:48 pm

I was gonna say – did Riley take this photo? But then I realized I don’t see him listed as “intern”. Did you feed him to the tea baggers?

Abou Diaby April 15, 2010 at 10:09 pm

Real mature, sir. Real fucking mature.

Diana Davies April 15, 2010 at 10:24 pm

It’s a teabagger homage to Vitter. Duh.

Pooperazzi April 16, 2010 at 11:22 am

C’mon guys, the man is talking my language.
