        \_ I am shocked, *SHOCKED* that the NSA spies on foreign and US
           citizens and foreign governments. This Snowden guy must have
           been born yesterday to think he is revealing anything of import.
           \_ Most people seem to have been surprised by this.

        \_ Yay! I look forward to 4 more years of doing absolutely nothing.
           It's a much better outcome than the alternative, which is 4 years
           of regress.

Tonight, on the Rachel Maddow Show, Maddow and regular guest, Air America's Ana Marie Cox, discussed the fringetastic anti-tax Renaissance Faires known as "tea parties." As you will see, this is not the case with Maddow and Cox. begged Maddow, "I'm only barely making it through as it is." From there, it just got better: "Who wouldn't want to tea bag John McCain?" "You know it's going to be teabagging 24/7 when it comes to the midterms." Rachel Maddow HuffPost has comprehensive coverage of the Tax Day Tea Party protests. Tonight, on the Rachel Maddow Show, Maddow and regular guest, Air America's Ana Ma.. HuffPost has comprehensive coverage of the Tax Day Tea Party protests. Tonight, on the Rachel Maddow Show, Maddow and regular guest, Air America's Ana Ma.. Stuart Whatley: Teabagging: Redux Anti-Intellectualism Why the hell is this populist, boastful ignorance being actively encouraged and exploited by conservative corporate lobbyists, Fox News and, indeed, the Republican Party? A California Capitol Tea Party If you are wondering what Fox News is doing organizing anti-administration rallies around the country, its obvious strategy is to aggregate all the already existing opponents of Obama into one audience. Joseph A Palermo: Reporting From the Tea Bagger Hate-Fest in Sacramento The hatred was palpable today on the State Capitol's steps -- hatred for taxes, hatred for government, hatred for Democrats. But the most hated figure in Sacramento today was President Obama. Mitchell Bard: The "Teabag" Protests Smack of Neo-McCarthyism Today's "teabag" protests would be funny, if they didn't make me think of Sen. Joseph McCarthy, and what he might have accomplished if Fox News existed during his time. Karl Frisch: Warning: This Tea May Cause Severe Damage to Journalistic Integrity Organizers of these tea-party protests have no bigger cheerleader (or crowd-builder, for that matter) than Fox News, which has provided attendance and organizing information for the events on air and online dozens of times. Mike Papantonio: The Real Tax Outrage Rick Santelli is an unlikely character to be complaining about taxes and deficits. But it knocks on the door of absurdity when you recognize that... photo THE INCREDIBLE, DISTURBING, 24 7 PROMOTIONS OF THE TEA BAGGING EVENTS BY FIXD NEWS WAS BOUND TO HAVE A RE-ACTION . FOR EVERY LOONY ACTION THERE'S A CRITICAL SOMETIMES FUNNY RE-ACTION. permalink I, as a young woman, am ashamed that 2 women would get on television, even though not a very widely viewed television network given the ratings, & have the conversation these 2 women had. The glee, ridiculous teenage behavior in which they spoke of something with such vile conotation is sickening. They, as should Anderson Cooper & others that spoke of it so lightly, should be ashamed of the airing of such trash in the name of "news". They made idiots of themselves, as they regularly do, but this was even a new low for them. MSNBC, CBS, NBC and CNN need to wake up and realize the "Tea Parties" had NOTHING to do with "organizing anti Obama rallies", but EVERYTHING to do with being sick and tired of the money being spent on ridiculous pork filled CRAP generations to come will still be paying for. My 2 year old granddaughter will be paying for what Obama has spent in just less than 100 days in office! What makes this even more priceless, you left wing nuts blame Fox News & Republicans, but there were tons of Democrats & non Republicans in attendance that are just as tired of what has happened since the first TARP. Before you start calling me a Republican nut, let me assure you I am neither Republican nor Democrat. I voted twice for Bush but was not at all happy about many things that were done. I voted for Obama in the Dem primary and am not pleased with what is happening now. I commend you, adeas1132, for your insight, which I have found quite lacking by many of those who post here. I find it offensive that Nancy Pelosi denogrates those who attended the protests as rich elitists when she is the epitomy of that description. I find the "news" agencies to be pushing ideology rather than reporting. I heard what Ana Marie Cox and Maddow had to say and found none of it to be insightful or intelligent. What has happened to common sense and critical thinking in this country? If I were $100,000 in debt and subsequently spent another $300,000, I would be labelled as irresponsible and rightly so. Can anyone even attempt to explain in a bright and intelligent manner why the government should get a pass a do so without blaming previous administrations or calling anyone a derogitory name? photo I saw the Houston TX teabagging party at Jones Plaza up close, and I saw a one to one ratio of anti-Obama signs and anti-tax signs. you seem to be clueless about what government debt is and what it is used for. Today it is $11,183,899,252,728, a difference of $557,022,203. you need to get your head around the concept of debt because you seem to be unable to get off of the credit card metaphors. Debt when properly used creates growth in the economy, which increases the tax base. we may be at the point where we are overleveraged, such that a sharp decline in the tax base may put our ability to continue to service our existing debt in jeopardy. But that is the situation that was reached last fall, before Obama was elected. The US economy was undergoing shrinkage leading up to the election and a collapse in the willingness of the financial sector to support the circulation of capital. As a result, the US government - the spender of last resort - had no choice but to step in with a major injection of capital in order to "stabilize the patient" and attempt to foment growth. You need to take a better accounting of what Obama has & plans to spend! The majority of which will have NO EFFECT on getting us out of the recession. It's your Democratic Congress-Pelosi, Dodd, Frank etal that loaded everything from the 1st TARP to his new budget with PORK. It's easier for you left wing nuts to blame Bush, when in fact, this spiral began with Carter & Clinton policies! What you also didn't understand is what I said about "mainstream media". You saying you only saw anti Obama & anti tax posters is PROOF they didn't show the true picture of what the rallies were about & who attended them. TRUTH: the vast majority were Americans from ALL walks of life, all colors & party affiliations, concerned about their families' futures, a lot of which had no posters. Had they REPORTED, instead of doing and saying despicable things, acting like prepubescent giggling girls at a pajama party talking dirty rather than on a "news" program, maybe even folks like you may have understood the meaning behind them. The anti tax posters were more than justified since it will be ALL of us picking up the tab for Obama, Pelosi, Frank & Dodd's PORK! You may end up wishing you had been there with a poster too! permalink You people with your "tea bag" comments are childish. That's why you voted for a guy without knowing he was a socialist. Look up the term because its obvious none of you understand it. Obama's lack of experience in everything shows quite clearly. Since when does the leader of the free world bow to a Saudi King? Remember how he was going to go, line by line, through every bill and cut out the pork? Now we've got a tax cheat heading the treasury and telling us, our children and, eventually, our grandchildren to foot the bill. Well, the change I can believe in happens on 1/20/13 when your one-term, Jimmy Carter clone is ousted! Your rhetoric may play well to the people in America with no understanding of truth, politics and history but in the end Captain Charisma has lost his luster and your talk is just that, talk. All the pres and Congress are doing will effect you in a terribly negative way and we will hold all of you accountable. Like an intelligent man once said, I don't mid helping the helpless, but no one can help the clueless. permalink Hey there justsomeguywhoneedstokeepongoing, I'm so glad to see that my words were so valid that you couldn't use your own. I also noticed that you could ONLY attack me by calling me delusio...
