Tea Party ‘Movment’ Ready To Mov America Forward

by Ken Layne

Maine is a Movmenteable Feast.
The teabaggers are putting the “red” back in “lobster” here at the Maine Lobsterback Festival! Sadly, they are taking the “e” out of “Movement,” because the letter E is brought to you by Socialism. Thanks to Wonkette operative “Ablington,” who says, “I am half hoping that the guy at Kinko’s who made their banner did this on purpose, but the Maine Tea Party is just probably that stupid.”

The Teabaggers definitely put the E in Retard

Ablington August 10, 2010 at 3:27 pm

So, my brother took that picture…he said that the dude holding the banner who is not pictured had a look on his face like “SEE?!? I knew those Libruls would laugh and point and take photos for all the wrong, non-patriotic reasons!!”

Monsieur Grumpe August 10, 2010 at 3:28 pm

That is one sad parade. All clown, no band.

Texan Bulldoggette August 10, 2010 at 3:28 pm

Ummm…and not even Alice in Wonderland spelled Tea Party as one word!

chascates August 10, 2010 at 3:28 pm

Keep your government hands off our vowels!

Come here a minute August 10, 2010 at 3:29 pm

“Refudiate,” “Movment.” English is a living language. Shakespeare liked to coin new words too. Got to celebrate it!

An American in Toronto August 10, 2010 at 3:29 pm

Oh Nooo! Please stop them from ruining my home state. They better not have marched my beloved Yarmouth Clam Festival or the Maine Mall Parking Lot Festival.

As for the spelling, my own sweet dad spells lettuce, “letties,” so that’s par for the course.

queeraselvis v 2.0 August 10, 2010 at 3:30 pm

E’s are good, E’s are good. E’s Ebeneezer Goode.

american mutt August 10, 2010 at 3:31 pm

Messicans stole the ‘e’ and put it in ellegal.

doxastic August 10, 2010 at 3:31 pm

Between the missing E and the absent space in Tea Party, they’ve identified all kinds of efficiencies. Free market linguistics!

Extemporanus August 10, 2010 at 3:32 pm

Those nutty Teabaggers often experience irregular vowel movments.

(Too corny?)

BOOBIES! August 10, 2010 at 3:33 pm

The person who made that bannr was homschoold.

american mutt August 10, 2010 at 3:34 pm

Yes sir. I have had enough of the Main Teaparty movment.

Thrillhouse Goes Bananas! August 10, 2010 at 3:34 pm

I’d like to think that the guy at the banner shop saw this on a PDF before he cut the vinyl and then just smiled to himself and went about his work.

forgracie August 10, 2010 at 3:36 pm

Everyone needs a good movment….

slappypaddy August 10, 2010 at 3:37 pm

there’s a fair chance “the guy at kinko’s” didn’t know any better either.

teebob2000 August 10, 2010 at 3:38 pm

Eeleetist speling notzis!!

jimstoic August 10, 2010 at 3:38 pm

Misspellings aside, why are the following letters italic:

The Maine Teaparty Movment
Have You Had Enough Yet?

And to answer the question, I’m so deeply buried under the previous president’s wreckage that it’s impossible to assess whether I’ve had enough of the current one.

Suds McKenzie August 10, 2010 at 3:39 pm

Somewhere, in Cabot Cove, Jessica Fletcher wps.

Tundra Grifter August 10, 2010 at 3:40 pm

[re=635992]Extemporanus[/re]: Nice! This is the sort of Movment one generally experiences in the smallest room in the house.

AKA a “Ducey” after Steve Ducey.

SayItWithWookies August 10, 2010 at 3:42 pm

I’m sure the missing e will show up later, if there’s a judgement to be made or possibly during a lightening strike.

weejee August 10, 2010 at 3:42 pm

Yes…we have had enough. Will you dmbsss just leave?

Prommie August 10, 2010 at 3:49 pm

[re=636010]SayItWithWookies[/re]: yes, yes, this is very good, it made me, to coin a phrase, laugh out loud, which alarmed my co-workers.

ella August 10, 2010 at 3:50 pm

[re=635982]Monsieur Grumpe[/re]: Yeah, but the whole town turned out for it. Looks like enough people there that some are from the next town over too.

It’s Maine, I hope that Pennywise the clown comes back up from the sewers and eats all of the Maine Teabaggers.

Serolf Divad August 10, 2010 at 3:59 pm

Fact: Ernesto Che Guevara had thee, count ‘em, three “E”s in his name (if you count the nickname “Che” as part of his name).

germansteel August 10, 2010 at 4:00 pm

Good, but no “Get a brain, Morans.”

BigDupa August 10, 2010 at 4:01 pm

[re=635979]ManchuCandidate[/re]: That’s offensive- to retarded people.

An Otter of Magnitude August 10, 2010 at 4:01 pm

Come on, shortening “Tea Party” to one word is perfectly reasonable. It made the Analyst-Therapists of the world seem more professional, why wouldn’t it work for them?

DC Hates Me August 10, 2010 at 4:02 pm

“Teaparty” emphasizes the bitter “tea” while de-emphasizing the fun “party”.

IceCreamEmpress August 10, 2010 at 4:06 pm

[re=636030]Airborne Toxic Event[/re]: So says the GAY GAY GAY CALIFORNIAN GAY MATH PROFESSOR GAY LIBRUL Tom Lehrer, you mean. Who is also a Jewish.

[re=636038] Serolf Divad[/re]: I get five in my gay Californian librul maths (if I count “Che”).

Dear Maine Teaparty:

I had a movement considerably more intelligent than yours after this morning’s bran muffin.

No love,


gurukalehuru August 10, 2010 at 4:15 pm

Notice how this enthusiastic crowd of lobster celebraters at the Lobster Fest are just ignoring the shit out of these characters. Most of them looking back down the road and probably whispering to each other “Isn’t there another marching band coming?”

[re=636010]SayItWithWookies[/re]: I saw what you did there.

Mad Farmer Manifest August 10, 2010 at 4:20 pm

The rain in Maine falls mainly on the lame.

And the illiterate.

Mr Blifil August 10, 2010 at 4:21 pm

My movments have had similar problems of late.

El Pinche August 10, 2010 at 4:24 pm

I’m thinking one of those diabetics teabaggers was arguing with the kinko’s elitist college libtard for 25 minutes over the spelling. Commonsence America won.

comicbookguy August 10, 2010 at 4:27 pm

Welcome everyone to our weekly meeting of the Maine Teaparty Movment. Our protest was a big success. Dozens of people saw our banner and became aware of our existence for a brief moment. Kudos to George for printing the banner. Now, next order of business. Did anyone hide a cookie for me?

[re=635989]american mutt[/re]: is the name of my latest venture: matching sad, lonely and only mildly racist Murkan slobs with sad, lonely undocumented workers of the opposite sex to protect the crappity, I mean, sanctity of marriage. It’s modeled after the mail-order bride business, but I cut costs on shipping because my matches are already doing your dishes or mowing your lawn.

Beowoof August 10, 2010 at 4:38 pm

Sheesh don’t any of these guys have a spell check?

WadISay August 10, 2010 at 4:38 pm

Remember the Main.

doxastic August 10, 2010 at 4:40 pm

Upon further reflection, the typos–while certainly funny–pale in comparison to the slogan’s unintentionally hilarious metacommentary. Maine “Teaparty”: Snark yourself before THEY SNARK YOU!

choinski August 10, 2010 at 4:44 pm

Actually ‘Tea Party’ is two words, not one.

LuxMentis August 10, 2010 at 4:46 pm

To be clear, they marched at the Thomaston 4th of July parade with the same banner (we took a number of pictures then for merry mocking purposes). They have to know, at this point, that the error exists. Really quite something…

GOPCrusher August 10, 2010 at 4:49 pm

Damn libruls. Speling and grammr ar lietist. PALIN/BAKMAN 2012!

[re=635992]Extemporanus[/re]: This appears to have been the result of loose vowels.

That ain’t Maine, theres no Snow.

If they’re not carrying bags of Redstate brand rock salt, they ain’t hardcore.

[re=636038]Serolf Divad[/re]: Four.

germansteel August 10, 2010 at 5:33 pm

To answer their question, why, yes! Yes, I have had more than enough of the Teaparty Movment, thank you for asking.

WalkinwiththeKing August 10, 2010 at 5:33 pm

What those baggers need is a healthy vowel movement.

An Outhouse August 10, 2010 at 5:34 pm

Their sign is confusing. Have I had enough what yet?

Beer? No.
Herb? No.
Peanuts? No way.
Old, pasty, fat, yelly white guys with signs? Yes.

Botswana Meat Commission FC August 10, 2010 at 6:22 pm

Obviously these are not ravers. They never, ever, ever, leave home without the E.

just pixels August 10, 2010 at 7:12 pm

Well, I know what “movment” means even if you guys don’t. So stop trying to cover up your vocabulary deficiencies with snide remarks about the Main Teaparty.

edgydrifter August 10, 2010 at 7:31 pm

I’m actually impressed they got “enough” right.

spymoose August 10, 2010 at 7:45 pm

Must be the same dip-shit who did the monogramming on my kids book bag,LL Bean Columbia,MD.

Ablington August 10, 2010 at 8:17 pm

[re=636099]LuxMentis[/re]: What?? WHAT?! This is the second recorded use of the sign? They had fully a month to a. get a new banner, or b. simply throw it out and go bannerless? My God.

rmjag August 10, 2010 at 8:34 pm

i wouldn’t mind their movment if they had a healthier diet . but they don’t , and i have had enough

the problem child August 10, 2010 at 8:38 pm

Yes, yes, I HAVE had enough Maine Teaparty Movment! Where can I get a nice, hot towel?

Tar and Feathers August 11, 2010 at 1:32 am

If this is really the Maine Teaparty Movment I would hate to see the runner-ups!

montyburns4prez August 11, 2010 at 8:51 am

This is the picture I took of a truck in Maine during a Fourth of July parade, notice the Confederate flag on the front bumper: There’s racist hicks even in the backwoods of Maine.

“This is the picture I took of a truck in Maine during a Fourth of July parade, notice the Confederate flag on the front bumper: There’s racist hicks even in the backwoods of Maine.” – montyburns4prez.

Do you know anything about the confederate flag, moron…..obviously not. Dont put down “the hicks” when you are about as educated as a farm goat yourself.

Beaver August 11, 2010 at 12:48 pm

[re=636368]montyburns4prez[/re]: do you know anything about the confederate flag? obviously not…typical dumba$$ with no education spewing from your piehole about things you know nothing about….


comicbookguy August 11, 2010 at 1:22 pm

[re=636565]Beaver[/re]: I know the confederate flag was founded by Nazis and stitched by Charles Manson based on blueprints he received from Satan through his fax machine. Then there’s the unimportant historical details that don’t matter much to the good ol’ boys: Slavery. Treason. War. Jim Crow. KKK. Fuck you. Also.

Every confederate flag ought to have a swastika painted over it because they are pretty much the same thing.

Lilybart August 11, 2010 at 1:37 pm

What are you , some kind of….TEACHER…..{eye-roll}

Lilybart August 11, 2010 at 1:55 pm

[re=635992]Extemporanus[/re]: Funny.

montyburns4prez August 25, 2010 at 9:46 am

[re=636565]Beaver[/re]: You mean the same farm goat you had sex with last night?

Let’s see, confederate flag represents a government that supported slavery. Yeah so I think I know what the confederate flag is about. Jacka$$
