Ringeth thine patriot bells and proclaimeth this day Teabagger Day throughout The Land!
So declareth Rep. Tom Price (R-GA), who co-introduced a flowery resolution in the U.S. House of Representatives today honoring the people who participated in the September 12, 2009 so-called 9/12 tea party (official name: Taxpayer March on Washington).
Price, who represents East Cobb, North Fulton and the Dunwoody-bits of DeKalb, describes the 9/12ers thusly:
"[H]undreds of thousands of American patriots, who refuse to sit idly by as the Federal Government advances skyrocketing deficits, taxpayer-funded bailouts, pork-barrel projects, burdensome taxes, unaccountable policy czars, command-and-control energy policy, and a government takeover of health care, came to Washington, DC, to show their disapproval."
Nevermind actual media reports of the event estimate 75,000, not "hundreds of thousands" to "1,700,000" as Price's resolution claims.
Who cares though?
When you're trying to save America from IslamoCommuHomoFascistTyranny, facts are an unnecessary luxury.
The resolution has 76 Republican co-sponsors.
