    Why is anybody else?

    We're talking about TEABAGGERS here folks, not the Kennedy family.  These people are the Uuber-Conservatives, the followers of Glenn Blecch, the admirers of Bill-O the Clown.

    Racists?  Of course they're racists!  One need only look at the faces of those who attend Teabagger rallies to see who and what they are.  That there are few - if any - black and latino faces in their crowds is testimony to their agenda and their positions on important issues - like race.  You won't find any pointy white hoods on them, but their attitudes in general run along those lines.

    These people are throwbacks to the early-to-mid 1950's.  That's the world they are trying to re-create for themselves.  And not just on race relations, either.  They're the people who still believe that we should reduce the size of the federal government to something which can be drowned in a bathtub.

    They are the antithesis of everything we Progressives believe.  They are a danger to this nation's commitment to equality, justice, and fairness.  That nobody from our side has taken to an intense pushback against their movement is disappointing.
