I long ago said that I wasn’t going to waste time, energy, or brain cells obsessing over the ignorant, brain-dead zealots of the Tea Party. For the most part, I think I’ve been pretty successful. Of course, every now and again, the question would come up: “What if the Tea Party took over the Sunday comics page?” Well, now we know, because the fine folks at the Boston Globe answered that question yesterday…with predictably amusing results. I suspect that teabaggers from coast to coast will be screaming foul, but methinks that perhaps they might protest a wee bit too much. After all, if you don’t want to be satirized for our protection, all you need to do is to stop making yourselves such easy targets. You’re being parodied because of your self-righteous looniness; what part of that do you fail to understand? Really, ‘tain’t rocket science, y’all….
If you’re a Tea Party member, and you want to be taken seriously, there’s a very simple solution available to you: stop acting like you’re in desperate need of having your medication adjusted. Live in the world of logic, truth, and reality…and I think you’ll find that those of us inclined to make light of you may just begin to take you a bit more seriously. ‘Course, where’s the fun in that, eh?
