Lady Bunny: Stop The Insani-TEA
By Lady Bunny
But the Tea Party's lunacy doesn't stop there. Bloomberg's BusinessWeek magazine's new cover article asks 'Why Business Doesn't Trust the Tea Party.' Usually, Republicans are tireless supporters of big business. But the Tea Party has its nose buried so deep in a misreading of the Bible, it can't even create policies appealing to the corporate world! After pocketing a boatload of corporate campaign contributions!
Nor are they pulling for the average Joe. The Tea Party wants to end the imperfect but better than nothing 'ObamaCare' health care plan, along with social security and minimum wage. Who the hell wouldn't want a minimum wage? Hmmm, I can't think of anyone, except possible a disgruntled mob of gun-toting, racist evangelicals who want to take back their country from a president who they still believe is a Muslim who wasn't born in the U.S.
Even the garden variety Republicans dismissed these turds as too far out -- until they started winning primaries. Now the GOP is funneling a fortune into backing their campaigns. Remember Sue Lowden, the Republican candidate who became a national laughingstock after suggesting that we fix health care by returning to the days when we traded chickens with our doctors? After that ridiculous claim, she lost the nomination to Sharron Angle, who actually wants to outlaw booze -- and she's representing Nevada, home of Las Vegas? This freak looks likely to unseat current House leader Harry Reid and she's so deranged that many top Nevada Republicans have endorsed her Democratic opponent. Help!
We can't permit the most extreme brand of Republican to arise in decades to gain ground in Congress. For better or for worse, Democrats are the party which leans toward supporting gay rights in general. They're in deep trouble because everyone's broke and people tend to blame the party in power. Even in a robust economy, midterm elections tend to unseat incumbents. But just look at the freak show which is waiting in the wings if you don't exercise your vote. Staying home is simply not an option. Pressing the Democrats who remain in office on gay issues after the midterms is a wonderful idea -- but you can't do that if there are too few left in Congress to enact the changes you want.
