Ready for some teabagging?

Posted on 14 Apr 2009 at 9:24am

We all know by now that the rightwingers have been planning for months to “teabag” President Obama in a tax protest tomorrow (April 15, Tax Filing Deadline Day).

Well, this week a friend forwarded to me an e-mail from HumanEvents.com, the “headquarters of the conservative underground.” It said, in big bold letters; “Update: Your Tea Bag Might Be on TV April 15th!”

I am not sure, but I think they meant that as a good thing. I saw it as a warning for people to check their bedrooms for hidden cameras.

I was going to summarize the rest of the e-mail and insert some witty comments of my own. But after rereading it, I realize that summarizing it would not do it justice, and that I am pretty sure I couldn’t say anything funnier than the e-mail all by itself. So here it is:

“Dear Concerned American Citizen,

“The Reagan.org / Patriot Depot duo has been invited to display our tea bags at the official tea party in Washington DC at the US Treasury Department (National Stage) 12:00pm-2:00pm and Lafayette Park (Grassroots Stage) 11:00am-3:00pm. The media has been invited to watch us unload the tea bags at 9:00 AM. The tea bags are going to serve as the back drop for the events at Lafayette Park. Later that day, we will be heading a short distance over to the Treasury department for an authorized protest with the tea bags. Major Media, including Fox News, will be there.

“We still need your help to reach our goal of 1,000,000 tea bags. You can sponsor a tea bag for just one dollar! One dollar helps us cover the cost of buying and transporting the tea bags as well as purchasing the ads to promote this historic tea bag protest. You can see our advertisements on DrudgeReport.com, Hannity.com, NewsMax.com, and a host of other web sites. In addition to sponsoring tea bags, please forward this email to your friends and get them to sponsor a tea bag as well. Together, we can make a powerful statement that may shape future legislation and influence the outcome of elections. For additional information, you can visit our official web site at MillionTeaBags.org.”

Just think, for only $1, you can send a teabag to Washington, D.C. That’s a deal, considering what it has cost us to send dirtbags to D.C. in the past.
