Off To A Slow Start In DC

Not that tax day won't draw good-sized crowds of the clueless to their rallies today, but this picture is funny. Maybe some of the teabaggers noticed that they're paying lower Federal taxes this year, thanks to that Kenyan usurper and commiefascistmonarchist B. Hussein Obamaladen. Here's an interesting excerpt from a NY Times story about what the teabaggers think (relatively speaking):
"Their responses are like the general public’s in many ways. Most describe the amount they paid in taxes this year as “fair.” Most send their children to public schools. A plurality do not think Sarah Palin is qualified to be president, and, despite their push for smaller government, they think that Social Security and Medicare are worth the cost to taxpayers."
Maybe if the baggers checked out this information, it might make them less, uh, motivated. Ha ha, just kidding: it seems that the basic motivation of the bagger set is anger, as in the anger of sore losers. And listening to hate radio, Fux News, and half-Governor Winky as they do religiously, it's not surprising that their anger has been diverted from the plutocratic, corporate Rethuglican apparatus responsible for the mess we inherited, to people actually trying to improve their access to health care, grow the economy, and improve the situation of the middle class. Be assured that they'll continue to vote against their self-interests.
