DC Teabagging crowd estimate pegged at 8675309 because it “has a good beat and you can dance to it”

If they didn’t burn their Medicare cards,
they’re just a bunch of fucking posers.

Saturday in Washington DC an estimated bajillion times infinity people showed up to protest the election that took place over ten months ago when America was all "We need a new President. Do you have anything in black?" and that Halfrican guy raised his hand and we were all, "Close enough for government work. " And so we made him the boss of us.

The end.

But obviously not and  a bunch of shouty white people felt compelled to abandon their weekend trailer park pied-à-terres and descend upon our nation’s capital to, well, do something

As was the case with the bulk of the protesters, there was very little sense that anyone had any actual specific complaint with Obama’s health care proposals. That one woman loves the confederacy. This guy thinks guns are great and diversity is stupid. Many protesters feel that abortion is murder and/or that Barack Obama is in league with terrorists.

The biggest debate seems to be over how many bitter clingers actually attended Saturday’s festivities, with estimates ranging from as high as 2 million to as low as the Duggar family.

 Rick Moran at Right Wing Nuthouse threw a bunch of number shit against the wall and tried to average it out, but to no avail. Probably because he included an estimate provided by Neo-Confederate Robert Stacy McCain who, we assume,  once again applied the Three-Fifths Compromise when counting people of the dusky hue. Needless to say, McCain wasn’t very helpful, and only reinforced the maxim that one should never try to talk numbers with a guy who has to take his pants off to count to  20½.

So what was Saturday all about? For that we turn to the keen analysis of  fake doctor Melissa Clouthier who explains it all for us:

Here’s a couple thoughts:

1. The libs must be completely freaked out. They are obsessing over the details.
2. If they obsess over the details they can ignore the big picture–which is that a lot of Americans are unhappy at the intrusion and scope of the government.
3. If the Left had organically amassed this many people it would have been called…oh, the Civil Rights movement.

And of course, the left is screaming racism. Where are the black people, they ask? Well, interestingly, that 15% of the U.S. population is overwhelming still please with the President’s work. Also, black voters voted almost exclusively for Barack Obama.

If 3% of blacks voted against Barack Obama and say .5% of them are outraged at the President’s policies, what would that be in real numbers? Not too big. And actually, I can think of a bunch of unhappy black anti-Obama folks right off the top of my head. Are they racist?

Wait, what…?

Are the white Independents and Democrats who voted for President Obama but are now disaffected, racists? There were those sorts of people at the DC march. Are they racist?

Uh….well… I don’t think tha-….

When black people were angry at President Bush, were they racist? When white liberals were angry at President Bush were they racist? When President Bush lost the middle and a chunks of the right, were those people racist? I mean, they hated the policies of a white guy.

Well Melissa, you’ve got us there.  You can’t argue with that kind of logic. And, to the credit of the teabaggers, this certainly wasn’t racist:

Although if he had been from the National Lynching Association, then it might have been misconstrued as racist.

People can be so sensitive these days…
