Who's Going?

Clear your schedules ladies and gents!

There's going to be a group tea-bagging in Metairie.









What kind of tea-bagging party would it be without a special guest tea-bagging from Steve the Sleaze?

Someone really should go. If State Rep. John LaBruzzo shows up someone should ask him if he's gotten paid yet for getting his tea bags tied.

It's pretty hard to believe tea-bagger in chief David Vitter isn't going to be getting in on that action.

--

I've read a lot of bloggers comparing this inarticulate and target-less action to the inarticulate and target-less action that the Left perfected from the '80's until now. I think there's some merit to that if you're just talking short term tactic. I think the comparison becomes less useful as you take the long view. The Left and Right have tended to organize in ways influenced by generally different orientations toward various authority structures.


UPDATE: Jeez MSNBC is having too much fun with this.

msnbc has had a ball with the tea-bagging thing. there's an absolutely hilarious conversation between rachel maddow and anna marie cox circulating around right now. rachel almost loses it on a number of occasions. it's fun stuff.
