The notion that the Tea Party movement is not about fear, lies, and an aversion to change is silly. If some of them could turn back time and nail themselves to the founding fathers, they would do.
There was no Tea Party when the US went from a surplus in 2000 to a deficit in 2008 because of unfunded wars and moronic/ill-advised/misconceived (delete as appropriate) tax cuts.
Where was their so-called "fiscal responsibility" movement then? Oh... You're right. It's just a coincidence that they sprouted under Obama.
PS: mainlining memories of Ronald Reagan, or simply regurgitating the line "I'm a fiscal conservative" doesn't actually address the very real problems which the US acquired as a direct result of electing a president, Bush jnr, with the IQ of a coffee table; nor does it absolve Republicans and Teabaggers alike from their head-in-the-sand ostrich management attitude to the devastation of the Bush administration's fiscal fuckwittage.
But Mark Fiore's satire says it much more succinctly and pointedly than that - enjoy!
