Question for the teabaggers on Main Street in Sayville on Saturday
Before the question, a complaint. When you put up signs around town with "TEA PARTY" on them, the first thing I think of -- indeed the first thing anyone other than inveterate Fox News viewers think of -- is orange pekoe and crumpets, not 50-year-olds dressed up like George Washington railing about health care. And who knew the Boston tea party was organized to protest against universal health care? I, for one, did not.
Don't get me thinking of crumpets and then renege. It's just not fair.
But I digress.
Among the "patriotic" songs you were playing was "Sweet Home Alabama." So, at last, my question to you is, what the hell???
