AZ Tea Party Senators Want Tea Party License Plates To Benefit Tea Party

by Ken Layne

Add 50 years and 200 pounds and you've got an Arizona teabagger.No legislative body in WORLD HISTORY has compared to the greatness of the Republican/Tea Party-led Arizona state senate, which bravely responded to Jared Loughner’s slaughter in Tucson by creating an official state handgun and also legalizing loaded handguns at all public events. But the Arizona Senate Republicans have proved they stand for more than just slaughtering children and shooting holes through the brains of Democratic politicians — the Tea Party members of the AZ state senate are creating brave new ways of legislating financial support for the Arizona Tea Party!

On Thursday, Arizona Republicans introduced SB 1402, to create special “Don’t Tread On Me” Tea Party license plates that old white people can buy to put on their Ford Excursions so they can be assholes in every possible way while burning gasoline bought from Arab dictatorships on their way to CostCo. And the Tea Party will get $17 from every $25 “special license plate” — so the government will actually be paying the Tea Party to continue bravely battling the use or collection of money by the government!

The Arizona Daily Star reports:

What’s behind the plates is money: Of every $25 additional annual fee paid to the state, $17 goes to the benefiting organization for its own programs. In this case, a committee of five people, all of whom would have links to tea parties, would divide up the proceeds.

But Senate President Russell Pearce, R-Mesa, denied anything about it is political.

Ha ha, there’s nothing political about funneling money from a state’s DMV to a political party! Stop shitting on the Constitution, Democrats! [AZ Daily Star]

An "I heart teabagging" would be sooo much more appropriate.

I do like "teabagging"

I predict a huge uptick in rear end collisions in AZ.

Texan_Bulldog March 4, 2011 at 12:12 pm

I see you mentioned the Grand Canyon in the earlier AZ post. Guess great minds think alike — or more like there's nothing else of any value in that god forsaken state worth saving.

nounverb911 March 4, 2011 at 12:21 pm

Canyon de Chelly is worth saving too.

Texan_Bulldog March 4, 2011 at 12:42 pm

I'm sure there are plenty of beautiful places to see in AZ. I would love to visit there, but just not sure I want to visit somewhere where I could get shot because I scared someone when I tapped them on the shoulder in IHOP to ask to borrow their salt. Disneyworld may be horrible & commercial but, at least they don't encourage parents to pack heat.

not that Dewey March 4, 2011 at 2:34 pm

And Salt River Canyon. But that's about it.

LesBontemps March 4, 2011 at 12:19 pm

You're right, the $25 additional fee It is essentially a tax on stoopid; nothing wrong with that, per se, except that rather than using the money to help the afflicted, it's going to create more of them. Who will then pay more stoopid tax … Wait, I see where this is going.

BaldarTFlagass March 4, 2011 at 12:19 pm

Like the lottery, it's a voluntary tax on stupidity. Man, I am using the word "stupid" a lot today. What is up with that?

DoktorZoom March 4, 2011 at 2:09 pm

Yeah! If the AZ legislature had real balls they'd privatize vehicle licensing or better yet do away with vehicle registration altogether! Get outta my Hyundai Obama!

Lost_Teabaggers March 4, 2011 at 1:16 pm

Yes….I always found that kind of hilariously paranoid about teabaggers….their whole "Don't Tread on May" thing was because of taxes when NO ONE was trying to raise taxes on old middle class/ old poor people. It's delicious irony when the unwashed masses are willing to disrupt their own lives so massa knows how much they love him by standing by him……as he secretely uses their entire pension to buy a whore diamond for his trophy 5th wife.

GOPCrusher March 4, 2011 at 3:39 pm

I think it's cute that a few of them still cling to that TEA=Taxed Enough Already meme.

Texan_Bulldog March 4, 2011 at 12:08 pm

$17 out of $25?! Shit, that's more than Girl Scouts get for hawking those circular masses of transfat (ahem…I mean delicious & healthy peanut butter & chocolate).

Wonkette is just killing my TGIF buzz. Will the last person in AZ with a brain (that doesn't have a hole in it) remember to bring the Grand Canyon with them?

Steverino247 March 4, 2011 at 12:14 pm

No transfats in the GS cookies. I checked my granddaughter's stock to be sure.

V572625694 March 4, 2011 at 12:19 pm

Best thing about Girl Scout cookies is the way they're so well aged when you get them.

nounverb911 March 4, 2011 at 12:23 pm

Are they made with real Girl Scouts?

Steverino247 March 4, 2011 at 12:55 pm

I asked her that. She giggled and said, "Grampa!" Besides, she's a Daisy, so no threat to her personally until she's older.

Terry March 4, 2011 at 1:02 pm

There was an elderly man in our neighborhood would would make the same joke. He lived in a house surrounded by trees at the end of a long driveway. He also raised donkeys (nice!) and guinea keets (mean!). My sister and I were the only two girl scouts willing to run the guinea keet gauntlet…walk down the long driveway. When we range his bell, he was so happy to see us, made the same jokes every year, and always bought about a dozen boxes of cookies. Very much worth braving the evil old keets.

Ken Layne March 4, 2011 at 12:37 pm

Yeah but they are loaded with every other kind of shit. I bought my last order this year — the peanut butter cookies have something like 300 calories, almost all from palm oil (earth rape-y) and other fat.

Also, real food should not have 50 ingredients. We get great cookies from the bakery that are made of flour, sugar, eggs, chocolate, etc. … six or seven ingredients. You can eat one or two and not feel death crawling up to strangle your heart and cancer-ize your colon.

Steverino247 March 4, 2011 at 12:57 pm

I heartily agree with you there, Ken. The best cookies have stuff you can find in your cupboard, not in your lab. Unless the lab got up on the table and ate them. Bad dog!

BaldarTFlagass March 4, 2011 at 1:21 pm

"Look in the dog, Tony. I mean, open him up."

"It's not a tin of beans, Avi."

Texan_Bulldog March 4, 2011 at 12:38 pm

That makes me feel better about the 2,200 boxes our little troop of 9 sold to the behemoths and slobs on their Hoverrounds coming in and out of the Walgreens stores we sold in front of.

nounverb911 March 4, 2011 at 12:10 pm

"to create special “Don’t Tread On Me” Tea Party license plates that old white people can buy to put on their Ford Excursions so they can be assholes in every possible way while burning gasoline bought from Arab dictatorships on their way to CostCo"
With the price of gas going the way it, they soon won't be able to drive.

V572625694 March 4, 2011 at 12:21 pm

Not not worry, they're already asking that man in the White House to empty out the strategic petroleum reserve. Sure, we might need it for jet fuel in a war, but cheap gas is important!

Beowoof March 4, 2011 at 2:03 pm

The sad part is the oil price spikes are being driven, again, by Wall Street speculators. Saudi Arabia has already said they could and would make up for any lost production from Lybia.

Rambone March 4, 2011 at 12:10 pm

So, will this serve as a replacement for the mental-retardation plate?

Barrelhse March 4, 2011 at 1:40 pm

They have Trig plates?

Beowoof March 4, 2011 at 2:04 pm

Sure Bristol has one her car.

Lascauxcaveman March 4, 2011 at 12:10 pm

I'd be OK with this, but only if the plate was laid out in such a way as to display brilliant snark, like this Virginia plate.

CapnFatback March 4, 2011 at 12:19 pm

How did they account for the alt text on that Wonkette license plate?

Why doesn't the AZ legislature consolidate their stupidity and just have teabaggers sport a snub-nosed .38 on the back of their cars instead of license plates?

I'm more inclined to believe a sort of modern day Lt. Aldo Raine would make it a tad bit easier to sort them out?

V572625694 March 4, 2011 at 12:11 pm

I hope those license plates aren't being manufactured in socialist prisons.

freakishlywrong March 4, 2011 at 12:14 pm

They've "privatized" their prisons. All of Brwer's cronies got a slice of that pie..

V572625694 March 4, 2011 at 12:45 pm

The Free Market triumphs again. I hope they have two or three competing prison systems who have to bid on each convict.

Wait a minute…

In this case, a committee of five people, all of whom would have links to tea parties, would divide up the proceeds.

So I can get four other people to form a committee with me, we come up with a license plated design. The state of Arizona takes care of all the production and distribution expenses and gives us $17 for every plate they sell.

A good slogan might be "I luv cute kittens" or "Kill the Messicans".

Easy money from AZ!

Well, the Taliban believe that supreme religious truth was revealed by this one dude from the Middle East… and the Christians think it was another dude from the Middle East.

OneDollarJuana March 4, 2011 at 12:38 pm

The Taliban is less corporate-y. Hell, they don't even believe in interest on loans. I think they'll be happy to return to the middle ages, just as long as they get to keep their Kalashnikovs, a likely scenario, as those guns just seem to last forever, and the arms manufacturers have already made so much ammo it should last a while.

BaldarTFlagass March 4, 2011 at 1:22 pm

Is Wonkette receiving under-the-table kickbacks from makers of antidepressants?

Ken Layne March 4, 2011 at 12:40 pm

If whisky is an antidepressant, then the answer is YES … but only if by "kickbacks" you mean, "we are going to buy some and drink it."

DoktorZoom March 4, 2011 at 1:05 pm

You have asked me how I feel about whiskey. All right, here is how I feel about whiskey:

If when you say whiskey you mean the devil's brew, the poison scourge, the bloody monster, that defiles innocence, dethrones reason, destroys the home, creates misery and poverty, yea, literally takes the bread from the mouths of little children; if you mean the evil drink that topples the Christian man and woman from the pinnacle of righteous, gracious living into the bottomless pit of degradation, and despair, and shame and helplessness, and hopelessness, then certainly I am against it.

But, if when you say whiskey you mean the oil of conversation, the philosophic wine, the ale that is consumed when good fellows get together, that puts a song in their hearts and laughter on their lips, and the warm glow of contentment in their eyes; if you mean Christmas cheer; if you mean the stimulating drink that puts the spring in the old gentleman's step on a frosty, crispy morning; if you mean the drink which enables a man to magnify his joy, and his happiness, and to forget, if only for a little while, life's great tragedies, and heartaches, and sorrows; if you mean that drink, the sale of which pours into our treasuries untold millions of dollars, which are used to provide tender care for our little crippled children, our blind, our deaf, our dumb, our pitiful aged and infirm; to build highways and hospitals and schools, then certainly I am for it.

This is my stand. I will not retreat from it. I will not compromise.

DustBowlBlues March 4, 2011 at 12:24 pm

A guy in our parts is running for mayor of a little town called Pawnee–I'm not sure if it was inspiration for "Parks and Recreation." Nah, it wasn't. The Baptist preacher evidently has a sign for him in front of the parsonage–guy running found Christ at the Baptist church and now sports a giant rhinestone cross, just a little time before he decided to run. What a coincidence.

I understand from a friend that the guy in question has big but rather clumsily done tatts, which evidently inspired someone to check his background. Oh, and he's black. Definitely makes him a suspect, right?

Turns out, he did a stretch, guest of the Arizona Department of Corrections, for a drive by shooting. But says he will get a pardon, so it's cool. (The Baptists are evidently hanging tight, even though the guy got out of the pokey in 2006).

I told my husband the only way a black guy could get a pardon in Arizona for a driveby would be if he'd shot a Mexican.

Thanks, folks. I'll be here all week. Except, it's all gospel. Just not the Baptist gospel in this case.

SorosBot March 4, 2011 at 12:40 pm

A Rhinestone cross? The guy must worship the Gay Jesus, and openly; that sounds very progressive for your neck of the woods.

EdFlintstone March 4, 2011 at 1:50 pm

I don' think you need a pardon in Arizona for shooting a Mexican because it's not a crime.

I have another idea here, "Tea" is a 1940ish slang for the ganj. Under current U.S. drug and conspiracy laws shouldn't that be enough to put them in prison for 10 to 20?

What, no "Christian" license plate? How about "White, Male, Christian" license plates? Lets go whole hog!

Buy Tea Party License Plates to fight Traffic Stop Slavery!!!!

ttommyunger March 4, 2011 at 12:37 pm

"…legalizing loaded handguns at all public events." Well, that's one less charge against Jared Loughner, way to go, Arizona!

PsycWench March 4, 2011 at 12:37 pm

If the Virginia Democratic party sponsored similar legislation, I'm sure no one would accuse the sponsors of being political in any way, shape or form. It would probably make Ken Cuccinelli's head explode, so I'll work on it this weekend.

Barrelhse March 4, 2011 at 1:48 pm

I'll be listening for the explosion!

Fare la Volpe March 4, 2011 at 12:40 pm

If only, because if the Democrats are the one leading it, the worst that'll happen is the baggers'll sign a form to politely not say mean things about the revolution if they don't mind and it's not too much trouble thank you.

or provide some extra budget cuts to social programs to get them to come to the table.

andrewdrinker March 4, 2011 at 2:12 pm

Dude, we're Democrats, not Canadians!

I wonder if Hayworth will beat McCain to be first in line, thereby solidifying his bonefides to primary him again…

carlgt1 March 4, 2011 at 1:05 pm

I appropve as long as they are also required to hang mandatory truck nuts on their vehicle….

Winnie_Cooper March 4, 2011 at 1:09 pm

I saw a pro-life license plate once in downtown Philly, but I can't remember which state it was from. It was accompanied by two bumper stickers: "McCain/Palin '08" and (I am *not* making this up) "Chastity is for Lovers."

BaldarTFlagass March 4, 2011 at 1:23 pm

Clearly a reference to Chastity Bono.

Lovers with no sex is so what the Catholic Church preaches but does not practice. http://www.thesmokinggun.com/documents/bizarre/vi

I though baggers in AZ didn't have to have any liscence at all?

Lost_Teabaggers March 4, 2011 at 1:28 pm

Stew-pid librul, Az mullets will never do anything for peeese! Seriously though, I wonder which kind of mull populates Arizona?

I'm thinking maybe the Pulltriot? http://www.mulletjunky.com/picfix10.htm

Further down the list you'll find the template for teabaggin' women…the Mulltant.

The Constitution doesn't say anything about license plates so it MUST be legal! quit taking my freedumbs!1!1!1!1!1

When did the tea party become an actual legitimate thing? When did they go from drawing uncontrollable laughter to actually being taken seriously – and not just seriously but as a separate political group instead of the puppet of the extremist/insane Republicans trying to make "the grassroots people" feel like they were standing up for themselves instead of just further supporting the same agenda which has for decades made the Republicans prosperous at the expense of these people?

How is it possible for such a small group of people to throw such a loud tantrum that they manage to distract everyone from the fact that they are GREATLY in the minority?

Beetagger March 4, 2011 at 1:33 pm

I was planning to move to Flagstaff for a teaching job this year. No more. Too fuckin' crazy for me.

DoktorZoom March 4, 2011 at 2:04 pm

Flagstaff is actually one of the sane parts of the state. Of course, it is still governed from Phoenix, so there ya go.

Doktor Avalanche March 4, 2011 at 1:37 pm

So, the gubmint will pay proceeds to Baggits to undermine the gubmint… What a country!

glamourdammerung March 4, 2011 at 1:44 pm

But license plates are not in the Constitution!

For Sale: Arizona.

I believe I sense a market for exhaust-pipe potatoes.

BlueStateLibel March 4, 2011 at 1:48 pm

This clearly violates our Constitution's Separation of State and Retards mandate.

joeto2 March 4, 2011 at 2:00 pm

don't put down costco – they are actually kinda liberal, at least as far as large corporations go.

Dudleydidwrong March 4, 2011 at 2:05 pm

Or a good car to grab when the rapture-thingy starts.

MegPasadena March 4, 2011 at 2:17 pm

"…while burning gasoline bought from Arab dictatorships on their way to CostCo."

Accoding to the beggers, CostCo is for the liberals. They go to Sam's Club instead.

assistantatlas March 4, 2011 at 2:21 pm

Stories like this just make me thank my lucky stars I'm from Kansas, which, while a retarded state, is at least quiet and not overly retarded about it. Thanks, Arizona! And Wisconsin. And South Carolina. And Texas. And Ohio. And Orange County.

Respitetini March 4, 2011 at 2:47 pm

Fair enough. Canadians were able to provide their constituency with health care, after all.

andrewdrinker March 4, 2011 at 2:52 pm

People didn't like my funny so I removed it. I can't handle the loss of P!!!!

Hatrabbit March 4, 2011 at 3:32 pm

Arizona. It's Arizonan for 'Retarded'.

Weenus299 March 4, 2011 at 4:40 pm

You're wearing this Arizona schtick out, Ken. If this keeps up I may bypass teh wonkett (and the nifty advertizementz) and go straight to the TeaTard State's hot sheets.

Pragmatist2 March 4, 2011 at 5:00 pm

Here is the truth:
The Tea Party is a loose collection of white male losers brought together by one common theme – "It is somebody else's fault that we are losers" and led by loud and vacuous women whom they find sexually attractive.
Everything else is a detail.

HistoriCat March 4, 2011 at 5:30 pm

Read the Wonkette pieces about his "followers" and was just too ashamed to come out.

horsedreamer_1 March 5, 2011 at 9:10 pm

This story reminds me:

I never heard this when Scott Walker first got elected County Executive — of course, when he took office, I was already somewhere in the Munti Carpatii — but the Crazy Shepherd newspaper mentioned it in the last week's protest coverage: Scott Walker attempted to obtain free office-space in the County Courthouse for the corporate front-organization Citizens for Responsible Government (which led the recall drive that put Walker in office).

Note: CRG is three people, officially.

DoktorZoom March 4, 2011 at 2:21 pm

Terry & Steverino, thanks for comments which helped to remind me that all of humanity is not as horrid as today's posts suggest. And now, Kittens climbing into bowls!
