  1. Awesome. But what about gorilla masking?

  2. It’s too bad the “conservative” movement is such a complete joke.

    Racist!!!

  4. The problem with a conservative protest movement is that conservatives have jobs and lives. It is like that old joke about how they were going to have a “million Jew” march on Washington the weekend after the Million Man March. It didn’t work because everyone had to work.

  5. Racist!!!

    Well NOW it is, Al!

  6. Let’s stop the Democrats with a lemon party! Who’s with me?

  7. How about a rainbow party instead, Warty?

  8. *snicker*

    Shot of the week/month/year? You are too easily amused.

  9. Actually, I’d prefer they tea-bag me first. I can always feign sleep afterward.

    That young man’s eagerness to get on his back and accept a pair intrigues me. He will go far in politics.

  10. They couldn’t afford to have “the” in all caps, as well?

    P.S.: Even though I can’t make all of it out, the sign on the left has to be funnier; after all, it mentions ACORN.

  11. John – the picture puts the lie to your claim

  12. I always have to wonder with these kinds of conservative, how do they mix with the religious ones? I assume talking about Tea-bagging at Pat Robertson’s Regent University social mixers is probably frowned upon…

    I know lots of folks like this, who will drink like mad at bars and fuck anyone who will go home with them, but then turn around and support conservative christian stances as part of their “conservatism.” WTF is that?

  13. John – the picture puts the lie to your claim

    I see a retiree and some kids…
    Just saying.

  14. I think it would be better as “Tea PARTY the Liberal Dems, before they Tea BAG you.” Don’t these protests have editors?

  15. I know lots of folks like this, who will drink like mad at bars and fuck anyone who will go home with them, but then turn around and support conservative christian stances as part of their “conservatism.” WTF is that?

    Human nature?

    I think it would be better as “Tea PARTY the Liberal Dems, before they Tea BAG you.” Don’t these protests have editors?

    Freudian slip.

  16. Last time I made a rainbow party joke, Epi, I got scolded for driving chicks away from libertarianism or something. Beware.

  17. Could alt sex practices become the new political mataphor trope? Will we see “Federal Reserve Dry-Fists Middle Class” and “Local Buisnesses Nipple-Clamped” headlines in our future?

  18. Last time I made a rainbow party joke, Epi, I got scolded for driving chicks away from libertarianism or something. Beware.

    Well, that’s better than being accused of wanting to have sex with thirteen year olds, I suppose.

  19. “That young man’s eagerness to get on his back and accept a pair intrigues me. He will go far in politics.”

    No he is saying the opposite, he wants to do the sticking in them, not let them do it to him.

  20. it’s not gay if you don’t make eye contact, after all.

  21. The problem with a conservative protest movement is that conservatives have jobs and lives.

    I think you’re a bit off the mark there John.
    The problem with a conservative protest movement, is that conservatives are two-faced, scum-sucking, douche-bags, that were all too happy when it was the Republicans dry fisting us up the ass.

  22. I know lots of folks like this, who will drink like mad at bars and fuck anyone who will go home with them

    not that there’s anything wrong with that.

  23. Ton Tancredo, Douche Extraodinaire, thinks Grover Norquist (also, oddly enough, a Douche Extraodinaire) should be in jail.

    Deathmatch!

  24. John: Hmmm, I thought whoever performs the act gets the verb.

    Still, striking a blow against the forces of darkness by easing your testicles into their mouth is a unique approach.

  25. Malkin, Joe the Plumber and Palin supporters? What does it say about the protest that the Paulian goldbugs seemed like the sanest protestors?

  26. It’s not gay if you beat them up afterwards, dudes.

  27. Ton, Tom; whoever.

  28. “I think you’re a bit off the mark there John.
    The problem with a conservative protest movement, is that conservatives are two-faced, scum-sucking, douche-bags, that were all too happy when it was the Republicans dry fisting us up the ass.”

    As opposed to the scum sucking douchbags who ran around screaming stop this illegal war for 8 years and now don’t seem to have a problem with stayin in Iraq for three more years and sending thousands more to Afghanistan and attacks on Pakistan as well.

    And all those liberals who were so outraged by 500 billion deficits under Bush but now are so happy to see trillion dollar ones under Obama.

    Come on Warren, tell me what is it about black cock up your ass that feels so much better now? Douchebag

  29. “Human nature?”

    Yeah, but man, at some point one would think the cognitive dissonance of agreeing with “love waits for marriage,” “drunkeness is a sin”, etc., but acting like that all the time would cause a little reflection and introspection prompting either a moderating of the views or the actions which daily conflict with it…

  30. It’s not gay if you beat them up afterwards, dudes.

    “Let’s go watch some gay porn to get our hate back.”

    Still, striking a blow against the forces of darkness by easing your testicles into their mouth is a unique approach.

    Mac: You put your balls in my mouth while I was sleeping?

    Dennis: Yeah, man. Twice.

    Mac: That’s rape! That is borderline rape!

  31. val – iow, they don’t have lives

  32. Warren – John only accepts being anally fisted by white conservatives. You accept it from a black liberal, so there must be something wrong with you. Understand?

  33. Yeah, but man, at some point one would think the cognitive dissonance of agreeing with “love waits for marriage,” “drunkeness is a sin”, etc., but acting like that all the time would cause a little reflection and introspection prompting either a moderating of the views or the actions which daily conflict with it…

    Nah. Never underestimate the power of a human being to lie to itself. People can keep up cognitive dissonance for years. Or they just rationalize their poor behavior because they’re somehow different or special. I get to listen to my sister (4 DWIs) complain about my mother being a substance abusing psycho alcoholic. The connection never quite seems to click…

  34. John-

    We all know how much you miss Joe, but get over it.

  35. Ton Tancredo, Douche Extraodinaire, thinks Grover Norquist (also, oddly enough, a Douche Extraodinaire) should be in jail.

    Two douches enter, one puddle leaves.

  36. MNG,

    Do as I say, not as I do…for your own good.

  37. The kid with the sign prolly just plays Halo.

  38. I don’t want the democrats to tea bag me, I want them to snowball me.

  39. “He requests this?!?”

  40. for the benefit of Fr Bunny:

    yes, you should be upset. yes, that’s another Kevin Smith movie reference.

    :p

  41. “As opposed to the scum sucking douchbags who ran around screaming stop this illegal war for 8 years and now don’t seem to have a problem with stayin in Iraq for three more years and sending thousands more to Afghanistan and attacks on Pakistan as well.”

    no, no, no…it’s that you’re all horrible, horrible boot-licking toadies.

  42. horrible, horrible boot-licking toadies

    But not not toad-lickers, because that’s completely beyond the pale.

  43. i figure they’re already psychedelicized enough as it is, no reason to throw some bufo in there.

  44. Tea bag Barney Frank at your own peril.

    The kid with the sign prolly just plays Halo.
    He heard the [LibDem] clan was a bunch of glitchers.

  45. The problem with a conservative protest movement, is that conservatives are two-faced, scum-sucking, douche-bags, that were all too happy when it was the Republicans dry fisting us up the ass.

    Don’t forget that they’re vulgar, hostile, and prone to sweeping generalizations.

  46. The sign basically says: “Fuck them, before they fuck you.”

    I think of it as a call to arms. The government wants to use force? They may think they have a monopoly on that, but they are wrong.

  47. Hey, I’ll squeal when I’m being violated, no matter if it’s by a blue or red dick.

    I’m just saying, conservative have exactly ZERO credibility bitching about liberals.

  48. Where are the paper mache puppets?

    This will be about as effective as ANSWER was against Bush, and less entertaining.

  49. The thought of either party being fiscally conservative is downright hilarious and sad at the same time.

  50. John–

    Reagan proved deficits don’t matter!

  51. Apparently these protests were threatening enough that Playboy.com posted a hatchet job claiming it was all corporate executives behind it. Since it was started by JP Freire and then publicized by me and others working as volunteers on yahoo, FaceBook etc for many hours a day all last week, I knew this was a lie, and posted a comment calling the Playboy authors liars.

    Currently the link to their story seems to be dead.

    But a “report” on it is here: http://rawstory.com/news/2008/Tea_Party_protests_sees_as_corporate_0301.html.

    Odumba supporters and other statists certainly seem to find it threatening enough to lie about.

    Or perhaps lying is just second nature for them.

  52. Epi, I know I’m a little late, but…

    Awesome. But what about gorilla masking?

    I’m sticking with the tea-bagging. What if I dip my nuts in ink or something and then put it in his mouth– that make you happy?

  53. A guy who has never posted here before decides just randomly to post a link that swears the whole thing wasn’t spontaneous?

    Uh, ok. Yeah.

  54. Awesome. But what about gorilla masking?

    I’m sticking with the tea-bagging.

    How about we give each of them a jelly doughnut and call it a day?

  55. John,
    I thought liberals were elitists. Are they now unemployed elitists? That’s quite a core constituency, the Party of George Costanza. And I’ve never heard the “million Jew march” joke, ever before. When I googled it, I got a bunch of stories on Jews marching to commemorate Auschwitz last year. Doesn’t an old joke have to be both old, rather than made up on the fly, and funny?

  56. Old jokes have to be funny now, too?

  57. I always have to wonder with these kinds of conservative, how do they mix with the religious ones?

    A mutual interest in limited government and individual liberty.

  58. Tell ’em how it is, SIV!

  59. Who killed you Terry? Oh yeah, a state named Florida.

  60. You mean the kind of limited government where pornography is outlawed?

  61. A bag of tea is about all we’re going to have left to our names pretty soon the way things are going.

  62. Who killed you Terry? Oh yeah, a state named Florida.

    The state didn’t do anything. Her husband was her legal guardian and decided that a life as a vegetable was unnecessarily cruel. That’s the way medical care at the end goes. You should have a living will to prevent stupid ass fights like the one between her parents and him. The autopsy of her brain showed signs consistent with PVS. The only people that involved the state were the Schindlers (who also succeeded at tarnishing a good man’s reputation).

    This is why all of my family members have been explicitly told, if I’m a vegetable, pump me so full of morp[hine, it would stop an elephant’s heart.

  63. “As opposed to the scum sucking douchbags who ran around screaming stop this illegal war for 8 years and now don’t seem to have a problem with stayin in Iraq for three more years and sending thousands more to Afghanistan and attacks on Pakistan as well.

    And all those liberals who were so outraged by 500 billion deficits under Bush but now are so happy to see trillion dollar ones under Obama.

    Come on Warren, tell me what is it about black cock up your ass that feels so much better now? Douchebag”

    Now that’s fucking funny.

    Onward to Islamabad!

  64. I think it is safe to say that currently in this country we are in a situation where the government is our enemy. It does not matter if you are a social liberal or social conservative, we are all being fucked in the ass by a government that has run away from it’s master..the people. Obama has shrewdly used our social differences to get into office and start the trip to socialism in overdrive. Until the people of this country sit up and realize that we don’t owe other countries anything, we don’t owe illegal aliens anything, and we don’t owe people too lazy to work a free ride, we will continue to do nothing more than work our lives away to give others the fruits of our labor.
