How lame is that?
I heard about it a few days ago, but honestly thought it was a lame joke. You’d think they could come up with something a little less rip-offy than Coffee Party. But as they say imitation is the ultimate form of flattery right?
Now the NYT is covering it.
It had nearly 40,000 members as of Monday afternoon, but the numbers were growing quickly — about 11,000 people had signed on as fans since the morning…
The slogan is “Wake Up and Stand Up.” The mission statement declares that the federal government is “not the enemy of the people, but the expression of our collective will, and that we must participate in the democratic process in order to address the challenges we face as Americans.”
So let me get this straight, people standing up against excessive taxation and against big government are bad, evil, racists….blah blah blah.
Yet, people that like big government are good?
Anyone who has actually gone to a Tea Party protest can tell you that it is made up of all different groups of people, you’d think the Left would love it, its Diversity at it’s finest!
How much you want to bet the only one’s going to Coffee Parties are the latte liberals that still think Obama is doing a WONDERFUL job? Maybe they can talk about the evils of Corporatism while drinking mass produced coffee at Starbucks! Oh Irony never tasted so good!
Maybe it’s the Left realizing how utterly stupid they have been for all their shit talking about the Tea Parties. Do you think they finally realize how many voters they lost because of their attitude?
Maybe they should call it the Turf Party, cause it smells like AstroTurf to me. Or is it only okay to say that about groups the Dems don’t like? Sorry all this double standard stuff gets me confused sometimes.
I’ think I’ll just stick with my Tea.
