My day job is in advertising - coming up with new ideas to promote brands and save businesses. From a marketing communication POV, the whole teabagging meme from the GOP is a laughing stock of guilty pleasures. For those of you who have a cleaner life than mine, teabagging is urban slang to describe "To have a man insert his scrotum into another person's mouth in the fashion of a teabag into a mug with an up/down (in/out) motion."

Maybe more of you do know about this than I imagine. After eight years of Bush, I too feel like I have had a mouth full of musty balls. Although thoughts of Cheney moaning "wreck it" sends me running to hug some porcelain.

Back to the misguided meme. The Libertarians had a decent idea to protest taxes - tea, protest signs and genuine outrage. Then the GOP caught wind of the idea and took it right off the ship and into the deep murky waters if idiocy. "Let's call it teabagging!" With whatever "brand movement" the Libertarians had generated with their protest idea was ruined overnight by the GOP, who only wants to lift taxes for the rich, no one else. Let's all write on the chalkboard, Bart Simpson style, "Obama signed the largest middle class tax cut in history." Yeah, do that several hundred times.

Then the true wingnut freaks were pushed over the edge by the Glen Beck's on-air crying, Oral Roberts style. I kept expecting Glen to whimper, "Father I have sinned against you." Maybe Glen has that nutsack taste in his mouth also? Once the winguts got involved, it all went to total hell. You have protesters with signs ranging from "The ONE was born in Africa" to "Hitler gave good speeches too!" and other assorted, full-throttled nonsense.

I have always said freedom of speech is a two-way street. Yes you can say anything you want, it will also let everyone around you know if you are an ass or not.

The GOP is showing you an example of who they really are (again) - miserable at coming up with ideas and miserable at giving a shit about the middle class. Remember what they are protesting today - "Obama signed the largest middle class tax cut in history."

Even the libertarians involved are being funded by a number of right wing think tanks. This whole thing is an orchestrated, fake grass roots movement, and so mind-numbingly dumb.

Town called Dobson? Wow! Hilarious! LOL! Gonna look around some more!
