The Shot Heard Round the Country
Too bad my drawings look like cave paintings. Otherwise, I would draw the tea partiers, grinning, looking down and shooting themselves in the foot. And it would be a beautiful drawing, too by a possible soon-to-be ex-Republican.
Like many political analysts said, they passed legislation that they couldn’t have ordinarily passed, and they held this country hostage while doing so. Why they are patting themselves on the back is anyone’s guess, though it must be part of their affliction. One GOP email asked me for a donation to get America back on track, as if a party of mlillionaires needs my twenty-five or fifty dollars. Then, I received another from Reince Priebus, the Chairman of the Republican National Committee, thanking me for being a patriot and containing phrases like “Make no mistake. President Obama wanted hardworking American taxpayers to bail him out once again.” Silly me. I thought that he wanted to raise taxes on the rich to help balance the budget. But Priebus skipped over that, so he must be as out to lunch as some of the Tea Party patriots in Washington.
Some pundits have predicted a Republican sweep come the next election. I would be surprised if there were only enough Republican voters to fill a boardroom after this. As for me, I’m thinking of ordering one of their membership cards so I can tear it up and mail it back to them. Then, I’m thinking of becoming a libertarian.
