They’re here, they’re beered, get used to it

Recent polling on the ‘Teabagger’ movement has been released and there are two things that are quite evident.

First, the movement is made up primarily of Republicans and people who think Jonah Goldberg is an intellectual.

A Sunday poll — actually three national phone surveys of 1,000 registered voters — found that 17% of all polled, or more than 500, called themselves “part of the Tea Party movement.”

…The Tea Party adherents broke down 28% independent, 17% Democrat and only 57% Republican.

Zell Miller’s got a big family.

Second, the movement is really unpopular with the public as a whole (ironically JUST as popular as “socialism”).

…only 37% of Americans view Teabaggery favorably.

But enough with the statistics, like a good teabagger, allow me to summarize in pictures rather than those commie “words”:

Is Maureen Down a Closet Bigot?



In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
