Tea Party Rabid Pitt Bull

No offense to Pitt Bull’s but the Tea Party is the rabid beast of the Republican Party. In the post election of President Obama, Republican’s have reached out for the passion of the Tea Party activists to try and win back as much of the political spin that they need to win control back of the house or senate. Unfortunately, they did not check to see if the Tea Party had its rabies shots. They pretty much hugged that puppy, fed it, and set it free among the party.

I’ve been trying to sum up in my own head what the Tea Party actually stands for and it is no better than extremist that come from the left side of the aisle if you overlook the spelling problem that most Tea Party folks have. The Tea Party is tantamount to a three year old throwing a tantrum till the Republican party people listen to them and then they decide to throw several other tantrums just because they can. And as long as the Republican’s play favorite child with the loony right, then they deserve to have a rabid dog in their living room.

What is more ironic and idiotic is that nobody is really in charge of the Tea Party nationally and thus it never will have one unified message. That pretty much makes the whole Tea Party movement impotent politically and according to some reports the GOP is trying to distance itself from the so called Tea Party grass root followers.

If you think about it, only Palin, Beck, and Limbaugh think the movement is worth their time but if you really look and think about their actions then you see a different picture. Palin is dreaming that she will actually be a contender candidate for President in two years time but her own political party is moving away from her self defined controversy. Nobody that extreme will ever have a chance at the White House because you need the middle of both political parties to get elected and frankly she is bat shit nuts! Beck and Limbaugh are money making machine entertainers so realistically they would raise Ronald Reagan from the dead if they could make a buck off of him. And they both have admitted to being entertainers and NOT political figures. I can understand that because I’m a blogger and not a political leader. But I’m no where near the pay grade of Beck and Limbaugh.

What does all of this mean for the November elections when it comes to the Tea Party movement? For Republicans it is a self inflicted shot in the ass simply because the people that actually vote will never buy bullshit and extreme right or left political badgering. Voters know what a rabid dog looks like. You don’t give that puppy a hug and kiss, and you certainly do not feed it and the GOP is facing that problem in November. Extremism works at rallies but just doesn’t seem to fit in the voting booth.

We under estimate Sarah Palin at great risk. Palin fans high emotion. She plays on fear and hate. There is plenty of both and she is riding the wave. Don't expect rationality to overcome fear as long as people are fanning the flames. This country hates intellectuals and rationality and it values emotionalism as genuine. As long as emotionalism is king Sarah Palin has a chance and it should not be under estimated as scarey as it may be. And the Republican Party is so enamored with power and taking control that they will do little to stop her.

Unfortunately, what the teabaggers lack in direction and coherence, they make up in fervor. The old punk lyric "Don't know what I want, but I know how to get it" comes to mind.

Republicans dare not ignore such an energized force. Already teabaggerdom has tipped the scales in party primaries and led the party to nominate loons in Nevada, Kentucky, and Alaska, and may be about to do the same in Delaware. These candidates may well lose them elections which moderate Republicans could have won. Unfortunately that's not guaranteed.

Palin probably can't win in 2012 -- even a majority of Republicans think she's unqualified. But the party establishment has two years to figure out how to stop her from getting nominated at all.

I don't underestimate her ability to raise the whacky right at all Jim. Lord knows she can see Russia from her back porch. LOL!

Infidel, what did I tell you about bringing the spell checker to Papamoka's tea party??? Damn bro! LOL!

I worry about what Republican/Tea Partier victories in November will mean for our political climate. One more reason for progressives and moderates to go out and vote!

As for Palin, even if her supporters can't see that she's a buffoon, she'll never be president. She would never run in the first place, in my opinion. Palin seeks money and fame, NOT responsibilities -- which is why she abandoned her job as Alaskan governor to become a media darling.
