Attention, Tennessee teabaggers:
With teabag fever riding high after the undeniable success of your Tax Day Tea Party
at the Capitol (though I was disappointed to learn there was nary a scone to be found), wouldn't it be a shame to let that momentum fizzle? Can you really wait till next April 15 to break out the Earl Grey in support of, er, whatever it is you're supporting?
And are you going to sit on your Lipton's while the Grand Socialist Conspiracy that brought you President Obama and his stimulus funds
rubs your face in it with statues of Al Gore and Cordell Hull
, right there on the very Tennessee State Capitol grounds where you like to congregate?
This move to immortalize Tennessee's two Nobel Peace (read: capitulation) Prize winners is a slap in the face to regular, hardworking Americans. As if Gore and his shameless profiteering
under the guise of this pseudo-scientific "global warming" nonsense weren't bad enough, they want us to pay homage to Hull, the man partially responsible for creating that hand-holding pansy-fest known as the United Nations?
Now that it's unanimously passed the House and the Senate State and Local Government Committee, these statues are just a Senate vote away from defiling ground zero for your favorite talk-radio-inspired paranoia-ganza. Sure, the statues are being privately funded, but who do you think is going to pay to clean off all the pigeon crap and eggs (hint hint)?
And wouldn't you think the ninnies who craft our bills and resolutions would at least know how that it's spelled Nobel, not Noble
? God knows it ain't a prize for nobility--but then again, what would the pagans who dreamed this resolution up know about God anyway.
