Tea Party Poll

Over at Yahoo, they want to know if you agree with the Tea Party protesters, or what. Might be worth tellin' 'em.

Pointed, pithy and dead-on comment from Kevin (The Smallest Minority) Baker:
No, that's NOT what they're asking. They're asking (surprise, surprise) the WRONG FREAKIN' QUESTION

"Yes. Obama's tax changes are irresponsible."He hasn't changed taxes yet. It's his SPENDING that's completely off the rails. Taxes come LATER. Apparently along with a renewed AWB and gun registration.


(Gun registration? Remember Prohibition?)

Good point. --I still think it's useful to go sign on the side of pf the Tea Partiers.

I went back and threw in another vote for the Tea Partier side, 73% are responding "Yes. Obama's tax changes are irresponsible"

What really got my attention was that they've racked up another 1500 votes in less than three hours

As of--well, right now, no time noted on the site--with 11681 votes, 73% are going with "Yes. Obama's tax changes are irresponsible", 5% with "Perhaps. There are pros and cons to the plan", 21% say "No. We are at much higher risk without the plan", and 1% don't have a clue.

This is another case of the media asking themselves the right question. (That's a phrase a lefty commenter at my blog used once. Once.) You see, they've convinced themselves that the TEA Parties are protests against the Great O's obviously benign and all-caring tax policy, so we stupid racist rightwing teabagging radicals aren't even smart enough to know that our taxes didn't go UP!And it's the job of the MEDIA to EXPLAIN THAT to us! Just like Susan Roesgen tried to do for that moron she "interviewed" for CNN.

You see, as my lefty commenter said, if you ask yourself the right questions, the answers just magically come to you!
