On ‘teabagging’ and other name-calling

So the liberals and their media allies have taken to calling the Tea Parties ‘teabagging’ in an obvious attempt at innuendo.

Well, cool. What, did any of you expect to get asked why people are out marching today? Did anyone really expect an honest inquiry as to why so many folks are upset? Uhhh, no. Wasn’t ever going to happen. The same people who can’t debate in the arena of ideas weren’t suddenly going to change (har).

But it’s all good, and here’s why.

Like all liberals and democrats, they’ve overplayed their hand. Not a small feat when you consider that the Chicago machine has been in office for less than 3 months. They’ve pointed up and yelled “SCOREBOARD!” and assumed that the Bush hatred they fueled over the last 8 years meant that the vast majority of the people suddenly decided to view the world through the same prism that they do.

For me personally, I like my libs overconfident. Lazy. Stupid. Let them continue to live in the bubble they’ve concocted for themselves, the one that says that millions of Americans suddenly want their version of government. Don’t be discouraged when they dismiss you, call you crazy, a traitor, whatever. And resist the urge to say, “Better a tea bag than a d-bag” *looks knowingly at the other side*

After all, that’s their tactics. It’s who they are. They’re not here to exchange ideas. They’re here to tell you your ideas are the stupidest ones on Earth and that you have no right to object to anything they have to say. They’re here to reach into your life and tell you how to live it.

But what they fail to recognize is that today wasn’t something Rush Limbaugh cooked up. It wasn’t something that John McCain or Sarah Palin put together. It wasn’t even something that the Republican party organized. Nope, today was what America is all about: a bunch of people deciding to make their voices heard. Oh, some lib troll may try and claim that we tried to deny them their right to protest the Iraq war, but that’s a dishonest change of subject.

Today was about the folks sending a message. There are more of these parties coming. And let Janet Napolitano label everybody who went to these things as some kind of whacko. In this day and age, as much as looks like the libs control the message, the people can still read the charts and access the legislation. They know what’s going on.

And they know who’s doing it. Let’s build on today. Keep the momentum going. Start by not engaging the name-calling haters. Just nod and smile and get to work perfecting our ideas. And when 2010 rolls around, get out there and get people to pull the lever the right way.

Hopefully, the lazy/overconfident/stupid among the other side will wake up with one heck of a hangover. And with some elbow grease, Pelosi and Reid will have a heck a lot of problems to deal with in Congress.

Let’s do this.
