Heard on the news that they did a survey of Tea Party members…the people in the party…not their members…and apparently, they differ from most Americans in that they are generally more affluent…got to have money for all that poster board, lynching ropes, and tickets to right-wing rallies…“Dude! I just scored Sarah Palin tickets! Awesome!!”…as he tokes on a fat cigar dusted with Rush Limbaugh’s oxycotton…Tea Partiers are also older…well, so much for the wisdom of the ancients…and better educated…really…how can this be?…’course we just experienced having a graduate of Harvard who was lucky if he could stick his tooth brush in the right hole…so we know it is possible to get an education and not get an education at the same time…which seems like a bit of an Alice in Wonderland conundrum. Maybe one explanation is that the Tea Party clan…yes, Klan…filled out the survey themselves, and figured they should count all the hours they spent in line at the grocery store, waiting to buy their grits and hog fat in 55 gallon drums, reading the Star or the National Enquirer, and “did you know that Tiger Woods gave birth to Michael Jackson’s love child while space aliens gave him an anal probe”…they might think that’s an education…at least as much of one as watching Glen Beck tell you how “Barrack Obama joined a cult that worships Yugoslavian socialist mountain goats and he’s going to be under your bed tonight…yes, tonight…so hide under those covers, and let me diagram it on the blackboard for you because even though everything I’m telling you is total BS, if I put it on the blackboard, all those years you spent in third grade will make you think it’s a fact because its on a blackboard, Damn It!”..The educational equivalent of Pavlov’s dog…No, I’m sorry…better educated? I think that says more about our education system than it does about any member of the Tea Party having an intellect even slightly higher that a tree sloth…But if we wanted to provide more quality education to our children that would mean more taxes…“And we don’t want more TAXES, by GUM!!!!”…very depressing…maybe they don’t want better educated folks…then they might get some real competition at the Bingo hall… “B??? Where’s the B…What’s a B…4???…that’s a number right?”…well, it would make for longer games, which might keep them off the street…you know they drive back from those rallies…anyone want to risk life and/or limb driving while all those old folks are making right turns from the left hand lane, with their turn signals running for hours…and hours…and hours…my head hurts…
