The Teabagging/Crisco party in Nashville, TN is shaping up to be everything I hoped it would be. Human-shaped puke puddle Tom Tancredo got things rolling when he threw away his dog whistle and pulled an air horn out of his capacious ass (via Think Progress):
The opening-night speaker at first ever National Tea Party Convention ripped into President Obama, Sen. John McCain and “the cult of multiculturalism,” asserting that Obama was elected because “we do not have a civics, literacy test before people can vote in this country.”
OK. Granted, this is Tom Tancredo, arguably one of the stupidest vertebrates to ever draw breath in the U.S.H.o.R., even if you count the mice. It is possible this steaming butt nugget doesn’t know the sort of tests he mentions were outlawed by an act of Congress when Tom was about 20 years old.
In other words, if we did things Tom’s way, he wouldn’t be allowed to vote.
Anyway, I think Tom knew exactly what he was saying and I’m really glad he said it. The GOP desperately wants to control, or form alliances with, or at least avoid being viciously mauled by the Teabaggers. At the same time they’re trying to convince people that we’re the party of scary radical goons and (my favorite part) convince people like me that I should vote for them because the Democrats are the real racists.
Two-legged ass stains like Tom make this impossible. And they create some awesome political theatre along the way.
