It seems that the tea party in the United States has gone from “seriously?”, to “no, wait – you guys can’t be serious”, to “but surely they’re unelectable”, to having elected senators and congressmen … and now to their first Presidential candidate, Michele Bachmann, who said she would eliminate the EPA:
Carbon dioxide is natural, it is not harmful. It is part of Earth’s life cycle, and yet we’re being told that we have to reduce this natural substance, reduce the American standard of living, to create an arbitrary reduction in something that is naturally occurring in Earth.
Stupid? Batshit insane? Both? You can call it plenty of things, but correct is not one of them. Luckily she is only a candidate to be a candidate … for now.
Not content to merely parade about their based-on-lies policies, Tea Partiers can now also brainwash their children by sending them to Tea Party propaganda summer camp.
Children will blow bubbles from a single container of soapy solution, and then pop each other’s bubbles with squirt guns in an arrangement that mimics socialism. They are to count how many bubbles they pop. Then they will work with individual bottles of solution and pop their own bubbles.
That doesn’t sound strange at all.
