Why anyone disputes Markos' characterization of these lunatics as American Taliban is beyond me. This isn't political speech; it's hate speech.

Since they're so into claiming policies are being "shoved down their throats", all I can say is that I hope they all choke on it.

Local members of the Tea Party sponsored a float, decorated to look like a Radio Flyer wagon, pulled behind a truck. In that truck a number of people sat holding signs that read everything from “Obama Care” and “Healthcare Take Over” to “Wasted Tax Money.”

But the thing that got people upset was a man in shirt and tie wearing a mask of President Barack Obama. In one hand he held a sign that read “Hey Kids! Thanks for paying out debt!” In the other hand he held a horse riding crop which he snapped at a young teen in front of him pretending to pull the wagon by the handle wearing a shirt that read “Future Tax Payer.”

Don't ever forget that Jenny Beth Martin, co-head of the Tea Party Patriots, received a $510,000 tax bailout. Biggest. lying. hypocrite. ever.

Goldie at Horses Ass has more.
