The Tea Partiers are so put out by Obama that they're threatening die-ins in the halls of Congress

Poor tea party goers. They're so frustrated by the change of regime and they're irrelevance to it that they're convinced that serious protest is the only way to stop what they see as tyranny. Now they know what liberals and people on the left felt like for the seven years post 9/11 that Bush was President. Join the club. The difference is that they're wrong and we're right. I say this unambiguously because the tea partiers seem like a much stupider caricature of the most extreme sign carriers at liberal anti-war rallies. And because Bush authorized torture and the invasion of civil liberties and is therefore much more of a Nazi than our African American president. Supposed 'Death Panels' don't really stack up against actual torture practicing prisons at Guantanamo, Bagram air force base, and Abu Ghraib. Attacks on President Obama's birth certificate don't stack up well against the demonstrated draft dodging of Bush during the Vietnam War. The list could go on. Maybe if they learned how to spell they're cause would be more compelling. Anyways, that's it for now.
