These guys are really so dumb it hurts:
Outside the White House, protesters threw an apparent box of tea bags over the fence. U.S. Secret Service officers cleared Pennsylvania Avenue and Lafayette Park near the compound and sent in a robot to inspect the suspicious package while the White House went on lockdown.
Solid thinking, teabaggers! Seriously. That is almost a Darwin Awards entry- “Watch me throw this package over the fence while snipers sit on the roof of the White House!” Also:
But a funny thing happened en route to a visually pleasing Tax Day protest. The National Park Service said the tea party protesters didn’t have the proper permit to dump their bags.
“We have a million tea bags here, and we don’t have a place to put them because it’s not on our permit,” said Rebecca Wales, lead organizer of D.C. Tea Party.
A local think tank, the Competitive Enterprise Institute, said it would allow the dumping of the tea bags in its 12th floor conference room instead. Not quite the same impact, though.
No doubt there will be protests planned to protest the burden of getting proper protest permits. Maybe we can get all of them together to burn their driver’s licenses or something on Independence Day.
have the EPA round ’em all up and chuck ’em in the FEMA concentrations camps!
Judging from the video from the various Tea Parties, just be glad these "revolutionaries" aren’t burning any bras.
Oh, so we’re throwing things at the White House now?
Pft, teabags are weak.
Skip to 1:40 or so.
btw, i can think of a place they can put their tea bags.
That collective teabag burning or dumping over at the rightwing Competitive Enterprises Institute sounds like quite the bang. We liberals won’t ever recover from that.
Thanks, teabaggers, for wasting tax dollars on security for your antics. I’m sure that closing down Pennsylvania Avenue and running in a robot is only a couple of bucks.
Stupid. So stupid.
I’m pretty sure the original tea partiers didn’t have a permit and didn’t particularly care. These guys don’t do civil disobedience very well.
The Moar You Know
I honestly did not think the election of a black man to the Presidency would send the nation off the deep end.
I thought there’d be some weirdness and the occasional lunatic, like in the Clinton years. This is something quite different. And by different I mean "terrifying and yet hilarious".
They’re already wasting tax dollars by sending tea to Congress. Every envelope has to get scanned and the contents tested.
We’re seeing some critical failures in an ability to do long term planning, and people are looking to these nuts for tax advice?!!
I think I’d rather ask Willie Nelson
Some revolutionaries these teabaggers. Although considering that the most ambitious thing some of these deadenders have done is answer the door to get the pizza…
All this crazy just 3 months in. There is not enough popcorn in the world.
That’s two appearances from the Competitive Enterprise Institute in five posts. I never heard of them before today; anybody else?
Based on their endorsement of teabag-dumping and sending licensed Rambos off to Somalia, I wonder if there’s anything an outfit like that has to do to actually earn the coveted "think-tank" moniker. The tank part is pretty clearly present, but why is this kind of lizard’s hind-brain cogitation labeled ‘thinking’?
Dumping teabags in a conference room? On the 12th floor? You can’t make this stuff up. You can hardly skewer it. It’s already parody. It’s like parody of parody with a little tea and parody on the side.
@The Moar You Know: Oh, I knew it would unhinge the right fringe to have a black man as prez. I just thought it would take a little longer than three months.
@NonyNony: Well, in their defense, they did say they were going to teabag the White House.
I’m amazed at the sheer lack of SHAME these people have.
When I was a kid, I was terrified of doing a friggin’ BOOK REPORT if I I hadn’t read the book. But these people can go to a public protest, where there’ll be cameras and reporters, and have not the slightest clue as to what they’re protesting about.
Under Ronald Reagan, the top tax rate was 50%, but as we all know Reagan=Awesome!
Under Obama, top tax rate to be set at 39%=OHMIGOD WE’RE ALL GONNA DIE!!
I was just having the same thought.
Its either a coincidence….OR A CONSPIRACY!
You know, during this pivotal moment in U.S. history with the fate of the nation hanging in the balance, I would have expected live blogging or something at teabagging central, RedState. Nothing. Top of their page hasn’t changed about a Chinese ship saved by dolphins. Maybe Code Pink has the RSSF pinned down and took away their communications.
Bad Horse's Filly
I’ve had a sucky day. So I’m grateful for the opportunity to hate on these people for a little while. And right now, in this moment, I really, really hate these people.
Isn’t throwing a bunch of fucking teabags into a river littering with some fine like $1000.00? Who is going to clean all that shit up anyway?
I have been watching this tea bag thing most of the day. Of all the pictures I nave seen,I have to ask.. Why is it I only see white people there…………….
So this revolution against fascism was stopped cold by an incomplete permit. Who knew the park service bureaucracy could hold back an army?
From the looks of it, most of those guys let their manboobs roam free.
Sorry – I sawe this quote by a commenter at First Read and thought it was particularly appropos:
"Republican Teabaggers, Rabble without a cause."
Heard on another site:
This has bugged me from the start. Why tea bags? I am pretty sure the protest on which this is modeled used loose tea. Tea bags are dumb. They are litter, they open the whole thing up to endless suggestive jokes, and they are just generally wimpy.
It’s not a real protest until someone gets tazered so let’s get real teabaggers.
Hell, I’ll let them dump them in our conference room. Free teabags for the break room for about 6 months.
..this, this is the Conservative "Burning Man", isn’t it?
I think the answer to that is obvious: On Obama’s birthday, have all of the teabaggers (hee, hee) burn their birth certificates.
Also: any good coverage yet? I need some funny videos and pictures to brighten my day.
@vishnu schizt: If the protest is sponsored by GE, nobody.
Polish the Guillotines
And what the hell do you do with a bunch of caffeine-hopped decorative carp?
And Jason Linkins from HuffPo reported it this way:
"But! As it turns out, the alternate plan –
1. Take a million teabags to Lafayette Park,
2. Dump them on a tarp,
3. Yell at them,
4. Clean up the teabags
-also isn’t happening, because of permit issues.
"According to reports, the truck filled with teabags pulled up to Lafayette Park, but didn’t have a permit, and so they were loaded back on to the truck and driven off to an undisclosed location.
"Also, the plan to have a second rally in front of the Treasury Department was scotched after the Secret Service said, "Uhm, no."
This is so very sad.
Man, I knew Obama getting elected would make stupid right wingers go crazy. I knew that they would make the Clinton-era crazies look like rank amateurs. But I wasn’t quite prepared for this. Their idiotic attempts at protest rallies have coalesced into a glorious masterpiece of fail that will be hard to top. I can’t really remember the last time I encountered this much total, epic fail.
They’ve already been causing problems for Congress.
If so, Martin, could the park service possibly issue piracy permits?
Yup, dumping tea bags at your own lobbyist.
Now, that’s weak tea.
You win the internet today. :-)
I am sad to say my father bragged he was going to a tea party today….I told him how utterly stupid they were but, as usual, my once logical father had his brain snatched by the wingers.
** Atanarjuat **
With regard to the reckless box tossing over the White House fence, it seems that many rightwingers have suddenly forgotten that we do indeed live in a post-9/11 world.
I wouldn’t be too surprised if conservative bloggers, realizing how dumb this stunt really was, will try to spin this in the following manner:
"Remember that veteran-hating ‘rightwing extremists’ DHS report? Obama’s Secret Service deliberately went into panic mode and made this out to be more dangerous than it really was in order to characterize the Tea Party participants as a bunch of — wait for it — rightwing extremists! The conclusion has already been made, and now they’re going to get the evidence, no matter how silly or manufactured."
But really, have rightwingers really forgotten the Anthrax Attacks that occurred only one week after 9/11? There’s a reason to treat any and all objects hurled at the White House with extreme suspicion, having nothing to do with partisan beliefs.
@GP: I was tempted to go to my local teabagging to see if I would be the only black person there. Then I decided I already knew the answer to that question.
The driver was last seen desperately searching his pockets to find the Sam’s Club purchase receipt.
Has the GOP driven away the smart or simply attracted the stupid? If Obama launched a war against Belgium and tried to impose wage-and-price controls on underware, would the Democrats also look like this after 7 years or is there something uniquely idiotic about the modern right-wing nutjob?
Yes they forgot about the Anthrax attacks. That’s why they keep saying there’s been no terrorist attacks since 9/11. truth is incompatible with their wingnut ways.
@Dreggas: Recently I received a note from my brother stating that he could no longer communicate with me because of my support for Obama. The envelope had a stamp of Mary and Jesus.
Fortunately, my brother’s politics have nothing to do with me as long as he doesn’t become a Tim McVeigh.
The best advice is shrug it off.
Tea bags are cheap. You can buy a box of a hundred for a couple of bucks and they’re available in literally every single supermarket in the country – rural, urban, suburban. Finding loose-leaf tea in West Nowhere, Ohio it tougher than finding a box of Tetleys or Lipton.
Tea bags provide a visual image that comes directly to mind when you think of "tea". Which means it provides an instant "symbol for the cause". If "teabag" weren’t already a slang term for a sex act, using a bag of tea as the symbol of your movement wouldn’t be the worst idea I’ve ever seen.
The only other form of tea that is as readily available as bagged tea is instant tea – which doesn’t lend itself to being a symbol of a movement and would generate a lot of jokes on its own. The big problem for these guys is that the whole "movement" came about from people too sheltered to understand that just about anything can have a sexual innuendo or scatological joke built around it, so you should really check with a smart and not socially isolated 19 year old to see if, perhaps, your symbol has already been co-opted into the slang to mean something you don’t intend.
Heh. I sure hope this brilliant slice of snark gets some air play tonight when they cover this, to borrow Argive’s words,
Well, when you think about how much wingnuts already distort history, using tea bags instead of loose tea is kind of a small thing.
More idiocy courtesy of Fox News Channel
Fox News reporter Cody Willard called the recently passed stimulus package fascist, and urged viewers to "wake up and start fighting the fascism" that is coming from the U.S. government.
And yet so very good.
@Phoenix Woman: Unfortunately, I cannot take credit. See first comment here.
Let’s try to measure this:
Cost of the teabags being bought simply for being tossed about like wasted junk = $
Cost of the security needed at Congress and the White House to go through each suspicious package containing tea, because of the risk of other biological contaminants = $$$
Cost of the patrols and street-level security to keep the ‘protests’ violence-free = $$$$$
Here’s an idea: why not have the government total up the costs, and send the FRAKKIN BILL TO FOXNEWS FOR PAYMENT! They’re promoting it, THEY PAY FOR IT.

@The Moar You Know:
I’m waiting for an actual brown Muslim person to be sworn in as POTUS on the Qur’an. Or better yet, a lesbian atheist that refuses to use any religious text and doesn’t say ‘So help me God". Can’t wait to see the fireworks those events will cause.
Back in November, all the comedians were going all, "Oh boo hoo! With George Bush gone, who will we make fun of?" I believe we have our answer.
@The Cat Who Would Be Tunch:
How about a black, crippled, Jewish lesbian from a Muslim family?

Montysano (All Hail Marx & Lennon)
Hunter Thompson wanted to heave a bag of live rats over the fence at the Nixon White house.
These goobers are gonna dump their little teabags in a conference room on the 12th floor.
Man, that’s just sad.
only if they were a veteran. Then they would esplode like Mr. Twiddle.
And a mutant?
I’m pretty sure that I know more than a few people going to a few of these protests today. I’m tempted to swing by one, morbid curiosity, more than anything. But the more I read/watch/listen to these folks, the more I wonder, wtf? I just can’t do it anymore. I’ve tried, a couple of times, recently to listen to conservative talk radio, I found myself yelling at the radio.
Limbaugh, this morning, was a perfect example. Three minutes into his rant about excessive government spending, I’m wondering where the hell was he when his buddy was expanding Medicare, creating DHS, expanding the federal role in education, and starting a war of choice? And then I remember, it’s not about the Republic, it’s about the political party, it’s us versus them.
Exactly. It’s fascinating, maybe even morbid, to watch this hate fueled and outdated belief system sputtering in its death throes.
@JL: Are you kidding me? Seriously? What a sad, sad, sad thing for your brother to do. I talked to MY brother after he voted for Bush (twice). I talked to him for all eight years Bush was in office. Your brother can’t take three months of Obama?
Sorry that you have to deal with that.
@The Cat Who Would Be Tunch: By the time the nation is so divorced from ridiculous stereotypes and smears that its willing to elect an atheist lesbian that openly rejects religious symbolism, we’ll be far past the point in which anyone seriously cares.
Getting a POTUS to swear on the Qur’an wouldn’t fill me with much more excitement than a POTUS swearing on the Bible… or the Book of Mormon or the Hindu texts or a big ole box of Dianetics guides. I’m not really interested in watching the nation exploring all 31 flavors of crazy before finally concluding that religion doesn’t matter.
Sadly, I never doubted for one minute that such things would happen. It became quite clear during the election that for many, the "natural order of things" was somehow being violated.
All that’s missing is a rope, a tree and one of Glenn Beck’s "them" at each location.
@The Cat Who Would Be Tunch:
Hey, I’m an Asian American bisexual agnostic deist who is not married, has no kids, and has no desire to have them. I would not swear in on any kind of text, except, perhaps, for the dictionary.
Will I fit the bill?
Tim (The Oher One)
Rob, permission to quote please (?) That’s a lightbulb moment.
I saw someone holding a sign that said "I’m not your ATM" with a drawing of a white hand handing money to a black hand. I’m sure there was no racist intent there.
@The Moar You Know:
It didn’t. It drove Fox News round the bend. They merely have a big bullhorn and delusions of relevance.
Teabagging — now that is the one (and practically the only) thing GOOPers do well. That and bald-faced hypocrisy.
I never doubted it for a minute either, but in a way it is a very good thing for moderates and liberals (assuming no one gets hurt). I have long thought that a large chunk of the right harbors a large bodies of beliefs that if brought to light would shock 60% of the population. I could never understand why the Dems did such a poor job of pushing them to center stage. I thing Obama’s election, combined with the accross the board beatings the right have taken at the ballot box (along with an assist from technology that allow almost anyone to tape anything at any time) has caused the right to leap in front of the camera’s with their right wing spew the I have been hearing privately from rock rib conservatives for 30-35 years.
@The Cat Who Would Be Tunch:
If only I wasn’t born in England…
Transgendered, married Lesbian Atheist… Though I’d prefer swearing on the Constitution itself, its what really matters.
So, wait. These guys seriously planned an entire event around what boils down to, essentially, dumping a quarter-ton of litter on a public park, and it never occurred to them that they might need some kind of special permission from the city to do that? Seriously?
Maybe this is more of a grass-roots thing than it seems.
I forget where I read it today but one quote from a teabagger I read today was something like "sure everyone should be able to have health insurance, but when you are driving around with fancy rims on your car and a cell phone don’t complain to me".
No one could have expected that it was illegal to dump trash on public party!!!
Nope, it definitely came from the top of the party.

What, nothing about countertops?
This is good.
I suspect more than a few vaguely disaffected Fox viewers will have had quite the winger meltdown moment today; going to a rally, looking around, and realizing the people around them have totally lost it.
@JK: If the wingnuts really want to fight fascism, they could commit suicide. Or donate to the ACLU.
@Montysano (All Hail Marx & Lennon): I’m as cynical as they come, and even I’m surprised by the depth of hatred. There’s really no other explanation, is there?
I am also a weapons-grade cynic but I’m not surprised by the depth of hatred. I’m surprised by the length of the clown shoes and the patheticness of the pathos and the abjectitude of the stupidity.
Well, *now* my brain hurts.
I bet they sang patriotic songs in the elevator on the way up. Take that, Obama!
You’ve got my vote!
This doesn’t make any sense now, but I guess it might when you can go to the grocery store and buy a nice chunk of health insurance for $9.99 ($19.99 if you want a camera and an MP3 player with it). And though they’re not my auto accessory of choice, I’m pretty sure one month’s insurance premiums (still fortunately mostly employer-covered, thank FSM) would keep me in fancy rims for a very long time.
I mostly knew of them as the major global warming denial unit, funded by Ford, ExxonMobil etc., who also dabbled in other pro-corporate (Pfizer, Coca-Cola) and right-wing (Scaife, et. al.) lobbying. Oh, and they also fought anti-smoking laws, citing "research" that second-hand smoke is jest fine an’ dandy.
Nice to see that they’re branching out and diversifying their portfolio in the post-Bush years.
Awesome, over on the front page of DKOS Jed L. is reporting that Cavuto was picked up, when he did not realize it, saying he thought 5k were at one of the events (his estimate) then a few minutes later "on air" he said the number was 2 or 3 times that.
Fair AND balanced.
That is what makes it doubly stupid. Say the rims in question were $200 a crack. What does that get you, couple of months of insurance?
All together now:
Mine eyes have seen the glory of the bagging of the tea,
I can’t stand to pay my taxes ‘cuz I worship O’Reilly,
I’ll Go Galt and then those lib’rals will be screamin’ "We’re sorry!"
Oh, freedom’s marching on!
In harsh economic times as these, I appreciate having a day when I don’t have to pay to get tea-bagged.
Stupid rules are still stupid rules. Tossing tea bags over the whitehouse fence is reminiscent of the vietnam vet protesters throwing their (or someone else’s) medals back.
I’d prefer the teabaggers act stupid by themselves, can we not go all Boston? Throwing what is obviously a box of tea bags over the whitehouse fence is no reason for locking down the place. It’s a staged protest, we’ve known it was coming for weeks. Pretending it’s a bomb is something worthy of as much ridicule as the protest.
@Napoleon: What does that get you, couple of months of insurance?
A couple of weeks, if you’re doing COBRA.
The Cat Who Would Be Tunch
Perfect! Let’s draft you to run against Palin/Bachmann in 2016, as long as you don’t have any loony ideas that are remotely close to the right wingers’ in terms of idoicy. Evinfuilt can be on your ticket as VP. Since ACORN and liberals are experts at birth certificate forgeries, the inconvenient truth of her being born in England is just a minor detail.
And sorry Argive, since we’ve already elected a black person as president (which obviously proves that racism is dead in the US), there is no need to elect another one regardless of the variant.
Unfortunately, I’m not sure that you have much choice in the matter. The only way for people to get used to the idea that it doesn’t matter which of the ’31 flavors of crazy’ a president subscribes to is for them to live through it. So until then, let’s sit back and enjoy the comedy gold that erupts each time a person with an aura of ‘The Other’ gets elected. Like tea bagging.
@Montysano (All Hail Marx & Lennon):
Moar and Monty, I think we’re seeing them come to grips with the end of the white privilege paradigm that has been running under the radar for these people. There’s a colored man in the oval office who, in their minds, ain’t supposed to be there dad gummit.
Hardly — that’s about one month’s premiums for the dirtest-cheapest individual plan, for a healthy young single person, with a deductible marginally less than the national debt, and coverage limited to "we’ll patch you up if you’re hit by a bus". The total monthly cost of my health insurance, for a basically healthy family of 5, is just south of 3 figures these days (again, mostly employer-paid, thankfully). So each month’s insurance is a whole set of rims, plus change.
The Sacramento baggers are in the midst of their prom at present. No Malkin sighting, and I couldn’t hang around and listen to any more droning waiting for her show and toss some exotic meat at the crowd. The only "name" speakers when I was there were Michael Reagan and Cliff Clavin. No, really.
Perhaps two thousand there, certainly the most white folks I’ve seen in one place since my last trip to Salt Lake City. The DHS right wing terror memo was probably the meme o’ the day. God, I loves me some paranoia, but the irony gods are probably at work increasing the very recruitment upswing it cites. Also.
Thank you. One down, only a hundred million to [email protected]The Cat Who Would Be Tunch: Brilliant idea. Me and ACORN are likethis. The only thing upon which the rightwingers and I agree is that we are nothing like each other.
I would love to have Evinfuilt as my running mate.
Let’s start a grassroots campaign!
I can’t be the only one who’s wondering if at least 10% of the attendees at these things were lefties who just went for the lulz.
They think the Federal Reserve is evil. Maybe we can get them to burn all those green rectangular pieces of Federal Reserve paper in their wallets in protest.

Well, I just see that "John PM" made a similar comment 1st back at comment #30. I hadn’t read through all the comments yet when I posted mine.
And here I thought myself so clever (sigh).
Oh, I’d *pay* to see that protest! Not very much, to be sure, but if all us DFHs offer a modest sum, perhaps we can spark something?
Amateurs. My family can tear itself apart over whether to use ‘awakened’ or ‘awoken’.
Hell, all my family has to do is uncork a bottle of Merlot, and you can practically set your watch to when the battle will start.
I suspect that if they were able to produce Weapons of Mass Erection they might hurt themselves. You know how these guys like to make things explode.
ooohhh! Can I be your FEMA director?
No, I don’t have any experience handling vast and complicated crises. When did that become a prerequisite?
Yeah. The teabagging easily could get out of hand, what with all those GOPers with "wide stances", not to mention the 2M4Mers.
Given how many threats this White House has probably had to deal with, that’s excellent advise. Thanks.
Glad you’re not in charge of security for any of my operations.
And you knew, without checking, that it was a "box of tea bags" how?
Jay in Oregon
Rush Limbaugh, imam of the Republican Party, has issued a new fatwa:
President Obama is a monster who ordered the execution of three black Muslim kids!
@Jay in Oregon: Holy shit, Rush is objectively pro-pirate.
Maybe for their next protest they could throw wet-suits and dildos.
@Jay in Oregon: I always knew that Limbaugh was soft on terrorists, but it’s nice to see him admitting it so clearly.
John, Dude, I just noticed the URL says p=20000. Do you really have 20,000 posts?? Let’s see 2009, 2002 – (1/x) (it’s an rpn calculator…) 20,000 * , 365 ÷ yields 7.8 posts/day. Huh. Yup. 20k posts. Wow.
I find it to be very appropriate that the 20,000th post here on B-J is titled "Fight For the Right to be Stupid."
Three cheers for being consistently wrong! Hip hip . . .
Fortunately, this country has container ship loads of undertapped black talent we can now draw upon because it is more readily recognized. I think we’ll pull through. Watching the tea party protests flounder has given me more optimism than I’ve had in a while. These people are in inherently incompetent. They may get lucky and manage to do some real damage but they are too full of shit to even do basic research into organizing a frigging protest, that greatly reduces the chance they can navigate their way to page two of the Anarchists’ Cookbook.
Well, Mary-A, I would have to vet you.
Ok, I vetted you.
20,000th post? What do we win??????
You’re in like Flynn! Heckuva job, Brownie!
P.S. Rush Limbaugh….There are somethings that cannot be said aloud, even on this blog.
Frick guys, have you been to a grocery store ever? They’re 3 or 4 inches long and maybe an inch and a half square. Even if this teabagger had a really good arm, it was over 100 yards from the building.
The secret service DOES have some REAL concerns on their hands. It’s a crowd of people who don’t like the president, they could do any number of things that are truly dangerous. The machine gun get together was what, 2 weeks ago? Throwing a tiny package maybe 40 or 50 feet (they’re light, I don’t expect they fly very well) isn’t going to be one of them.
Post-9/11environment is a rightwing excuse to stifle dissent, first amendment still stands, right? Their right to protest is our right to protest. You know that story from Boston, right? How did we know those neon aliens flipping us off weren’t a bomb? Oh yeah, because that’s silly.
So I didn’t like Bush, why can’t I throw a shoe in ceremonial protest?
For the record, I’m glad I’m not in charge of security either. President of the United States isn’t a safe job. Being the first black president only makes it worse. A giant hat tip to those that sign on to protect them.
Only 36 hours ago, Rush the Hut was calling Obama a pussy for not carpetbombing them.
How his listeners do not get brainwhiplash from listening to him is beyond me.
Actually Rush is mocking your side.

Um, right except for the part that when I did in effect get hit by a bus, they didn’t pay for the patch job until my lawyer sent them a sternly worded letter.
If I weren’t gay married to her–and providing certain services as a quid pro quo for the best legal talent that shares my pillow–they’d have stiffed the hospital and ruined my credit.
I tell this true story ad nauseum because the HDHP that covers me and the munchkin for $200 a month is what the ignoramuses in the GOP want everyone to own a piece of. Instead of access to health care.
If the ER would have accepted 20 inch gold spinners as a substitute for tens of thousands of US dollars, I’ve have boosted a set. Learning to steal hubcaps, unlike arguing with for-profit bureaucrats who get paid for every claim they delay or ignore, has the potential to work out in the end for someone.
