More Teabagging Hilarity

Posted by demkid on April 15, 2009

So much that’s made me laugh after a quick jaunt around the internets.  First, from the Huffington Post:

“In the first place, the big event of the day was to be the dumping of one million teabags.  The Washington Post notes that this was originally supposed to happen at the Potomac River but was shifted to Lafayette Park because of issues of legality.  And seriously, why anyone thought it would be legal to further pollute the Potomac is beyond me.  But! As it turns out, the alternate plan — 1. Take a million teabags to Lafayette Park, 2. Dump them on a tarp, 3. Yell at them, 4. Clean up the teabags — also isn’t happening, because of permit issues.  According to reports, the truck filled with teabags pulled up to Lafayette Park, but didn’t have a permit, and so they were loaded back on to the truck and driven off to an undisclosed location.  Also, the plan to have a second rally in front of the Treasury Department was scotched after the Secret Service objected.  So, this epochal day is off to an amazing start.  And somewhere out there, a truck full of teabags rolls on, destination unknown, into an uncertain future.”

Next, we have a clip from CNN that shows a sampling of the typical teabaggers who were out today and proves that yes, it is hard to talk when you’re teabagging:
