Before the liberals attack the TEA parties...

I want to go on record now, before I've read any of the liberal responses, about how I think the liberals will respond to the TEA parties taking place today. Here, in no specific order, are their likely responses:
  1. "Small numbers of right wing extremists don't speak for the majority of the nation." No matter how many thousands turn out (taking the day off from work no less) the libs will call it a "small number" and of course, since it is anti-big government, they are all "right wing extremists." The same number of left wing fringe ideologues, however, would represent significant bi-partisan public support for the Savior-in-chief.
  2. "People who just say no are only obstructionists, and therefore do not matter." Expect this one because, no matter the reason, if one is against Obama's big government, one is "only saying no." Does it matter that much of the discussion is centering on the Fairtax, which has been gaining momentum for years, has been introduced as a bill in the last three sessions of congress, and is an alternative to the punitive progressive tax we have today? No, that matters not to the liberal horde. Alternatives do not matter to them because they don't jive with their ideology, and an ideologue isn't open to alternatives.
  3. "It's all part of the right-wing conspiracy and smear machine." When all else fails, just blame the RWC&SM. Whenever possible, work in a comment about big oil, Halliburton, links to the Saudis and comparisons to Hitler.
Anyway, you can gauge the effectiveness of the TEA movement by the amount of denial of it's relevance. The more the left says it's irrelevant, the more it's getting to our elected officials, who crave re-election above everything else. And that is where we hurt them.

And here's something just for fun:
