The Tea Party

A picture is worth a thousand words. Add a word balloon or caption and the picture becomes a cartoon. A   thousand plus whatever the number of words used in a given cartoon. In this case say one thousand seven.
The comparison of the “curiouser and curiouser “movement known as the Tea Party to the tea party in Alice in Wonderland  is irresistible. They couldn’t have picked a more apt name. I know they are referencing   a different tea party but that’s also a different cartoon. We’ll look at that one in a future blog.
I not quite sure what the Tea Party is but it’s beginning to resemble a very bad “B” movie.  Sarah Palin the unauthorized but symbolic leader is the Doctor Frankenstein in this misadventure. She‘s busy cloning herself to a frightening level of accuracy.
Maybe Palin’s come up with a machine like the one used to create the Bizarro Superman in the comics.  The Bizarro Superman was a distorted reverse version of Superman. This creature was the opposite of Superman. Where Superman is handsome;  Bizarro Superman is ugly . Superman, intelligent;  Bizarro Superman, unintelligent. Sorry… with that scenario the Bizarro Palin would have to be near genius. Not a good comparison.
They’re also  coming  up with candidates that have a  “Son of Sam” like strangeness who want to give their dogs appointments if elected to office. I don’t understand.
I do believe the Tea Party’s agenda is simple: If Obama is for it than the Tea Party is against it. Obama says  yes; the Tea Party says no.  Hey…They are the Bizarro Obama.
A good slogan for the Tea Party would be “We’re not Obama “
