On Tea Parties, Boob Bait & ObamaCare

RedState recently explored the question of why the Tea Parties mystify the folks of Democrat-Run Media. It’s an insightful exploration. Here are my thoughts…

The Tea Party movement confuses the Democrat-Run Media (DRM) because the DRM are populated by people who think tea partiers are no smarter than Peggy Joseph. (She’s the infamous O-bot who said of Obama’s rise to power, “I won’t have to worry about putting gas in my car. I won’t have to worry about paying my mortgage. You know. If I help [Obama], he’s gonna help me.”)

A chicken in every pot and a car in every driveway…boob bait for the Bubbas.

Peggy Joseph’s line of reasoning is the way all middle and lower income Americans are supposed to be thinking. Political experts like Roger Ebert have made it abundantly clear. Here’s one of Ebert’s tweets on the Tea Party phenomenon:

“I write about the TeePees because it’s so sad how they’ve been manipulated to oppose their own best interests.”

Poor dears. What’s the matter with Kansas?!

Media elitists refuse to acknowledge that middle America is thinking beyond the next mortgage payment and the next stop at the gas pump. They can’t understand why ordinary Americans would find it in their best interests to shun government redemption.

Whether the DRM choose to believe it or not, Americans aren’t as easily tempted by Moynihan’s “boob bait for the bubbas” as the current regime in Washington would like them to be. Americans know that the health care bait (and anything else the federal government wants to “offer” us) has to be paid for. No free lunch.

Because of the protracted health care debate, Americans are keenly and painfully aware of the racket that awaits them if the Democrats manage to thwart the will of the vocal majority. Here’s the essence of the grand ObamaCare scheme…

Your role:

  • You earn the health care dollars.
  • You hand that money over to the government.

The Government’s role:

  • Big Brother spends the money.
  • Big Brother calls the shots.
  • Big Brother bankrupts your children and grandchildren (see Greece)

We know that that’s a recipe for helplessness, dependency and low-quality services. The DRM can’t believe that there are tens of millions of Americans who are smart enough to figure that out. The DRM can’t believe we don’t want to trade freedom for the illusion of security.

Poor Peggy Joseph. I bet she regrets making that statement. A few weeks ago, I went tracking down Peggy Joseph in hopes of conducting an interview with her to see if Obama is doing his part. Most of the Peggy Joseph numbers in Florida have been disconnected. I have a feeling I wasn't the first.

BB: A lot of people want to know what happened to PJ. Type her name into Google, and Google offers to search "Peggy Joseph where is she now"

You mean the lamestream media can't lead us all around by nose rings?

That's gotta be a hard pill to swallow.

Great post, but haven't you listened to Mark Williams on MSNBC? All we want to do is kill blacks and Jews...

O6: Fitting analogy!

TBAA: Oh...yes, right. I keep forgetting to ask the left what I'm supposed to be thinking.
