Sean Hannity and Newt Gingrich joining teabag parties...
I thought this was an interesting bit of news.

Sean Hannity was blathering last night about the teabag parties. He was grumbling that
the media was ignoring these parties. He said that he and Newt Gingrich were going to
start making appearances at these rallies.

Hannity said that a reporter accused him of underwriting these parties and perpetuating them--
and he said his response to the reporter was that he's not funding these parties--he's just
supporting those who are throwing them.

Two things seem clear: 1.) These parties are a failure. I've heard very little about them
and attendance is probably low. 2.) Newt, Hannity and the other right-wing nutters are
trying to drum up publicity and attendance at these PR farcical events, with their presence.

It reminds me of toddlers at Walmart who don't get their way. They yell louder and get more
obnoxious so everyone will notice them.

End of Story.

They might as well demand the return of the telegram.

Where were these people when bush was spending $600,000/minute in burrowed money in Iraq.

3. EWWWW...must avoid mental image of Hannity/Gingrich/teabagging.
It's just not a pretty picture. YUCK!

This does show how stupid these people are. Do they not realize the term they use to describe this action has a different meaning? :shrug:

It's like watching an episode of Romper Room.

4. Republican Party => Teabag Party
It's a twofer - rebranding and product placement at the same time.

9. Wankers trying to convince the masses they are important when the truth is they are impotent
and, yes, they are like ill tempered toddlers, with the critical difference that toddlers can grow up.

12. I think that this is ridiculus in ways other than the meaning of teabagging.
Let's face it, the original Boston Tea Party was for taxation without representation. the current tax system was done witn representation AND the Obama tax rates are lower for most americans than it was during Shrub.
