I sniffed Marc Cooper’s column today in the LA Times and found it can be described in the immortal words of Cheech and Chong: “Hmm… smells like dog $h!t…. Hmm…. TASTES like dog $h!t.”
Why the sniffing analogy? Because here is how this stuck-up prig starts his insulting column: “The Web is buzzing with information about how to throw an anti-Obama Taxpayer Tea Party, something organizers hope will be held today from Santa Monica to South Carolina. But no need to burn up your bandwidth reading complicated instructions. Here’s a simpler recipe: Go to a hobby store. Buy a scale model of a U.N. One-World-Government Black Helicopter and a tube of glue. Toss the model kit. Sniff the entire tube of glue. You’re all set for the party.”
Well, sniff this, Marc: We have no glue, and you have no clue. Cooper says the tea parties amount to “collective insanity” because federal revenues right now are historically low, so obviously taxes aren’t too high. He accurately notes, however, that organizers say “the Tea Party movement began in reaction to President Obama’s corporate bailouts and ensuing yawning budget deficits.” But this supercilious peckinsniff still can’t put two and two together. The point is that the “yawning budget deficits” will absolutely force HUGE tax hikes later on — yes, for us and for our children and grandchildren — and so the bailouts and “stimulus” orgies actually do amount to an immense tax hike without any Obamite admission thereof.
Cooper also just lies by writing this: “These same conservatives, however, were mum when George W. Bush erased our budget surplus and put us deep in the red.” Uh, hello, Mr. Cooper, when did you evr come out of your ivory tower for the past six years to actually deign to listen to conservatives? If you had, you would have seen that “these same conservatives” were anything but mum about George Bush’s spending. Most conservatives fought Bush and complained bitterly about his spending. No, we didn’t go as far as to throw tea party protests — but that’s because even Bush’s exorbitant spending didn’t even come close to the obscene levels of today’s Obamite-fascist economics. Finally, the tea parties protest not specifically against Obama so much as they protest against the entire Washington spending-and-corporatist establishment. If Cooper can’t understand that, then his brain clearly is all sniffed out.
