Dispatch from the Party of Tolerance

Yesterday, Laurel made a post on her blog showing Alison at the Virginia Beach Tea Party. No further commentary, just a couple pictures of our seven month old. Less than 24 hours later, a tolerant, generous, loving liberal, who neither of us have ever heard of before and is, to the best of our knowledge, a complete stranger, had left this comment:
Paranoid. Racist. Wildly ignorant. What we saw on display at these Teabagging parties is exactly what ails the Republican party as it attempts to remake its sorry image. It is a political party that is wholly dependent on a slice of voters who don't have a clue about civics, history, or whether they look like raving Christianist jackasses in public.

We already saw that with the mobs attending the McCain/Palin rallies who were eager to share their bigoted, deranged views with anyone carrying a video camera. They are now enshrined on YouTube for Edition 2 of the State of the GOP Base.

Listening to these folks go on and on about taking the country back was absolutely hilarious. Taking the country back? Are you kidding me? Where were you people four years ago when the rest of us were trying to stop George W. Bush from raising taxes on working families to pay for a war we didn't need to be in? Where was the outrage then? Spare me.
Wow, that's a lot of insults in such a short essay. Let's count the love:

  • Racist
  • Ignorant (and wildly so)
  • Paranoid
  • Clueless
  • Raving
  • Christianist (whatever that is)
  • Jackass
  • Bigoted
  • Deranged

    Can't you feel the love? Imagine the joy of spending any time with a person bitter, angry, and pompous enough to leave so much bile on a stranger's blog. On a post about a baby. Over politics. Never mind trying to discuss any of her "ideas," because she never offers any. All we know is that she doesn't like Republicans, and thinks that is all she need communicate. What she may actually know about "civics" and "history" we will never know or be able to discuss, for she offers nothing beyond calling us ignorant on the matter.

    For anybody interested, this woman's enlightened and important musings can be found here.
