Rapping About a World at Risk

Thank You Tea Party

America wakes up this morning to a new political reality.  America has decidedly turned a  shade of reactionary red.  We thank the Tea Party for showing us the way back to a dead past.

We thank you for your activism and energy.  We thank you for the passion. We thank you for your professed love of country.  We thank you for showing us how to spend the piles of corporate money on disgusting attack ads in service to our great democracy.  We thank you for reminding us that the US Constitution is America’s most precious asset even if you sometimes miss the point about what it actually says.

We thank you for returning the country back into the hands of the GOP.  After two years of living under the fascist hell of the dictatorial regime of Barack Obama the endurance of the people could suffer it no longer.  We long to enjoy the freedoms that tax cuts for the rich, corporations freed from regulatory shackles and the old time religious revival of laissez-faire capitalism offers as the only way to assure the social uplift of all citizens.

The GOP thanks the Tea Party for returning the country to their control.  The GOP appreciates the Tea Partys expeditious return to their local districts so Republicans can get on with the serious business of government. The serious business of government is working seriously with serious business people with serious money to address the serious problems of these serious constituents.  In all seriousness the GOP will tirelessly labor to solve the serious problems for these serious constituents.

The nation thanks you for the lively political theater you presented during the election.  Your eccentric cast of characters,dressed like Nazi enacters,wacky witches, militant militiamen, Adolph Hitler lookalikes and long dead patriots in tri-corner hats added some much needed levity to the weighty matters confronting the nation.

We thank the Tea Party by supporting a field of candidates that had the courage to publicly speak their convictions to raise the specter of  prejudice and fear.  The Tea Party’s religio-political fundamentalism raised the fear bar to heights that dwarfed even the three lanterns glowing in the Old North Church.  Like Paul Revere before them, Tea Party patriots road across the land alerting kin and countrymen to the dangers of secularism, recalcitrant Islam, liberal government, homosexuality, Charles Darwin and evolution, foreigners or any Mexican immigrant idling too close to our southern borders.

The Tea Party has given us pause to reconsider our addiction to caffeine fueled government spending and a lavish lifestyle and choice of coffee as national drink.  If you pardon the French, chai is now the preferred brew du jour.  So with pinky up we lift a tiny cup to celebrate the day by swilling a mouthful of Red Rose with the fervor of an Afghani, Ottoman or Brit.

Thank you Tea Party. Thank you.
