Tea Party Turns Tepid

Judging by recent lukewarm rally attendance, the strange media spectacle known as the Tea Party, once boiling over with boisterous belligerence, seems to have lost some of its seething self righteous steam, their protest signs proclaiming increasingly indifferent insults while still revealing their feeble unfamiliarity with spell check, are frequently facing the dwindling indifference of an apparently apathetic audience.

Yet the comically uncoordinated Don’t Tread on Me flag waving colonial era costume carnival continues to collectively sip their weak brew, desperately defending a disturbingly distorted interpretation of the Constitution that drastically distills the document down to two simple assurances, the right to freely voice their confused cup half empty policy positions, which curiously contradict their own self interests, and the right to steadfastly support their presumptuously paradoxical pronouncements with fully loaded lethal weapons.

Still sleepily steeped in the deliriously deranged notion that they are following in the footsteps of our founding fathers, this pathetic parade of posturing patriots are blissfully blind to the fact that they are only doing the bidding of a bunch of bingeing billionaires bent on drinking it all and leaving them holding the cold soggy bag of inevitable irrelevance.
