There’s been a lot of hoopla surrounding this past Saturday’s “Teabagger March” orchestrated by the astroturf groups like FreedomWorks and Glenn Beck. There has also been a lot of misinformation (or “lies” as we thinking people like to call it) being spread around, particularly about attendance numbers. What would still be an impressive 60,000-70,000 attendance for some reason has been inflated by event organizers as being a crowd of up to 1.5-2 million, complete with fake photos and all. FiveThirtyEight.com’s Nate Silver, a statitician who is eerily accurate just about 100 percent of the time, attributes this to crazy exaggeration and blatant lying by the astroturf groups. “[FreedomWorks president Matt Kibbe did the equivalent of telling people that his penis is 53 inches long.”
Lost in all of this are the marchers themselves. We’ve seen the absurd signs with their offensive and racists slogans, terrible spelling, held high by what is usually an ignorant, white, doofus. But who ARE these people? What had brought them out to DC in such anger? Nobody will say the “black president,” and I’m not going to speculate too much on that one but let’s see a few of them try to explain themselves.
As an added bonus video, this guy is the living, breathing definition of BALLS!
