"The Daily Show“‘s Al Madrigal on why no candidate "living, dead or fictional will ever satisfy the Tea Party":

inothernews:

  • Ronald Reagan:  He “was a Hollywood Commie who raised taxes, grew government, and gave amnesty to illegal immigrants.  That poor son of a bitch would get eaten alive by this crowd.”
  • Thomas Jefferson:  “The man cut up his Bible, loved the French, and had a well-documented case of jungle fever… Try again.”
  • Superman:  “Illegal immigrant.”
  • Optimus Prime:  “He accepted the auto industry bailout.”

"What people recognize is that there’s a fear that the United States is in an unstoppable decline. They see the rise of China, the rise of India, the rise of the Soviet Union and our loss militarily going forward."

GOP presidential hopeful MICHELE BACHMANN, not realizing the Soviet Union dissolved two fucking decades ago.

Then again, her unofficial campaign slogan is “Bachmann.  Backwards.”

Agreed. It is the “other Darren”.

"Rick Perry becomes the Republican frontrunner. Of course they’re letting him run in front — he’s the one with the gun."

First of all, in fairness to this gentleman who raised a question, I absolutely agree that everybody needs to try to tone down the rhetoric.

…Now, in fairness, since I’ve been called a socialist who wasn’t born in this country, who is destroying America and taking away its freedoms because I passed a health care bill, I’m all for lowering the rhetoric.

"

President BARACK OBAMA, confronting a Tea Party leader in Iowa, who took Obama to task for Joe Biden’s reported labeling of the right-wing faction of the Republican party as “terrorists.”

Awww, did the Tea Party’s “Obama is a Muslim, Obama go back to Kenya, Obama isn’t American, Obama is a socialist, Obama’s policies are like Hitler’s, etc. etc.” feelings get hurt?

But we really should tone down the rhetoric.  Even against the dickheads in the Tea Party!

Starting now.
