Last night, the Tea Party scored two big political victories: one involved a candidate best known for being objectively anti-masturbation, the other, a candidate best known for sending out pornographic emails. Commenter Martin asks “Now, the real question is how to square the Paladino win with the O’Donnell win. More campaign porn, but don’t yank off to it?” My man Tunku writes of teatards “Some want this, some want that, and some want who-knows-what.”
Atrios believes that what ties the room together for conservatives is pissing off liberals. Certainly, one can argue that sending out racist porno emails pisses off liberals and campaigning against masturbation also pisses off liberals, for example.
There’s a Real Murkin angle too, of course: Real Murkins like to send salty emails to each other (at one time, they might have preferred hanging around the old coffee shop swapping salty stories, but that’s probably an elitist activity now). Real Murkin mothers are rightly concerned about the dangers of masturbation. There’s no contradiction there.
Is that all there is to being a teatard candidate? You have to piss liberals off while being a Real Murkin?
