I would like to announce three new political parties!
It’s very exciting to see. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you:
- The I’ll bet I can find 1,000,000 people who think music education is important party;
- The Addicted to Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse, and Breaking Dawn party;
- And the Jeremy Clarkson should be Prime Minister party*.
What? That’s legitimate… by Newsweek standards, at least. Sure, they’re Facebook groups, but so is the Coffee Party, frankly – and all three of said groups have memberships between 2x and 3x that of the Coffee Party Facegroup’s of 200K, so if it’s legitimate for the one’s Facebook strength to be taken seriously than I insist that we – and more importantly, Newsweek – do the same for the above movements, too.
Or we could maybe, I don’t know, possibly not pretend that a group’s Facebook strength is necessarily indicative of anything useful? – and I cannot believe that I have to point this out to a print magazine.
PS: Gateway Pundit notes with absolutely no surprise (and none was warranted) that the mutation of this particular movement to a form more pleasing to the Left has already begun. Takeaway quote?
“I like the civility idea, but I hate the Tea Party people,” said attendee Karen Anderson.
As I noted yesterday, these people don’t really think about stuff.
*OK. This one I had to join. Jeremy Clarkson did the Best Car Review You Will Ever, Ever See. Yes, that one.
