Shut Up and Pay Your Taxes, Traitor, Implies Paul Begala

Clintonista Paul Begala says all you unpatriotic, wimpy, whiney Americans out there should just shut up and pay your taxes.

"Why are they out there whining with this Tea Party thing? Just a bunch of wimpy, whiney, weasels who don't love their country and don't want to support - there are guys at Walter Reed who gave their legs for my country, and they're whining because they have to write a check?" the political consultant who worked in Bill Clinton's White House told Don Imus.

Begala's rant came after the Center for American Progress Action Fund blog, Think Progress, trashed the tea parties, calling them political "astroturf." The Center, of course, is run by another Clintonista, John Podesta, who was Bill Clinton's White House chief of staff.

The rant also came after the Department of Homeland Security labeled all conservatives, libertarians, and veterans as potential terrorists.
