The Charge of the Teahadist Hover-rounds

Susan, who is a very wicked girl and a (quite young, actually) old compAtriot is the source for this wonderful dollop of sarcasm from the Home Aisles, titled:
Hoveround: The Tea Party Death Mobile - By Mark Ames - The eXiled

To all my fellow under-55-ers: If you want to know why we have to fund the over-55-ers’ full Medicare and Social Security benefits, leaving nothing for the rest of us, here’s your answer: All those taxes have to pay for today’s Tea Partiers to ride around on these Hoverounds. That’s right, if there’s one thing Boomers can’t stand, it’s not being able to chase us around the house while hectoring us about fiscal responsibility. Thanks to the Hoveround, there’s no way we can escape from their narcissistic deficit-hawk blather.

Here it is: You can run…you can walk…you can crawl even. But you can’t hide from the Hoveround:

I think young Susan is slightly off the mark on this one. I surmise many, if not most, of the more viral t-potties are in the 40-55 age brackets; people, unfortunately, my age. I am ashamed to admit that many of these people were the people who grew up in the 70's and 80's with no war to fight, no hardship to bear, to crisis to stiffen their resolve. They grew up completely free of want, and their role models were their older siblings, the yuppies and the dinks who later went on to
fuck the economy in their greed and rapacity. These are the middle-aged, white, over-religious republicans who are the tea party.
