What's ironic about all these brain-cell-challenged yahoos' rhetoric--Obama is a socialist fascist tyrant bent on the total destruction of all that is holy and American--is that it is in fact the ideologies they support: market fundamentalism; free trade; and American exceptionalism, that have brought America to its knees and prematurely ended the era of American hegemony.

With no great fanfare and little national media coverage, the people who organized the April 15 Tea Parties are gearing up for a new day of protests against government spending and higher taxes.

All that rhetoric you just spouted - does that mean we are now in the Communist era?

Government spending and higher taxes my butt, if that were the case why were there so many signs purporting that President Obama is ineligible and show us your birth certificate etc etc etc? Truth is most of these tea party participants are racist birthers.
