I saw this and I had an outragegasm. You know, that part of you that loves to be outraged? That spurted all over the place.
You know Jesus' Party, the lovely Tea Party, supporter of such political luminaries as Sarah "Kill the Turkeys" Palin and Michelle "I make out with Presidents" Bachmann? The ones who bloodied the Dems and swept the polls touting smaller Federal government and less fiscal waste?
Did you know that the Tea Party Caucus, cumulatively, requested $1 billion in earmarks last year?
"'It's disturbing to see the Tea Party Caucus requested that much in earmarks. This is their time to put up or shut up, to be blunt," said David Williams, vice president for policy at Citizens Against Government Waste. "There's going to be a huge backlash if they continue to request earmarks.'"
Phew! Thank Pluto (yes, it's still a planet in my book) that these dumbasses proved themselves to be just as dumb as we thought they were-- that they are another political fad like the "Hopeys" and the "Birthers" and the "Truthers" and the... ad nauseum. Wake up chumps: They're here to make money. If they tell you they ain't... well, they're lying, they're crazy, or they're me, cuz lord knows I'm not making any effing cheddar...
