Jason Levin, the author behind the so called crash the tea party group, is a staunch Libertarian who supports torture, de regulation of industries, and polygamy. Even though this group is supposed to be a covert undercover group operating incognito, Fox News and Sean Hannity were alerted to this anti tea party group days after it's inception. When the founder was notified that Fox News did a story exposing his group, the author expressed pleasure.

Is this the website people have been talking about so much in terms of "lefties" crashing their teaparties? so the whole thing was started by a "libertarian" (not liberal) for what? To get attention and try to make the teaparty look like a victim? LOL

The website appears to be a sort of a joke. The founder stated that when tea party members accuse Obama of being born in Kenya, they will respond by yelling "He wasn't even born on earth, he is an alien" Anyone can see that this is clearly a joke. Satire is not something conservatives grasp easily, hence their criticisms of Family Guy and Bill Maher

And liberals prove they get satire by what? finding Rush Limbaugh funny?

bill marr isn’t satirical so much as he is an infantile bed wetter.

We find things like Rush's hypocrisy funny. Such as his repeated calls for harsher penalties for drug users.....Of course, we came to find out that it didn't apply to him..

If he's a neocon, he's not a Libertarian.

What's the website?

Your OP was pretty thin on everything but disdain.
