First they came for our tent. Then they came for the hot dog guy. Then they came for our freedoms

Is there anyone whinier on Earth than a teabagger. All over social media today, they're demanding justice for a fucking tent. A tent they set up in a place where they knew there was going to be a contentious political rally.

Just for the record, sabotaging tents and making them fall on hot dog vendors turned caterers isn't a nice thing to do, and that includes if it was self-inflicted wound. But, a little perspective here folks. It wasn't quite kristallnacht. But, if there's one thing teabaggers excel at it's generating faux outrage at perceived slights to themselves.

For the rest of us, let's remember that the important story here is that Right to Work was rammed through the Legislature on the day it was introduced and in a way that violated the democratic process like it was a Manilla call girl and Republican lawmakers were a sailor who'd spent too long at sea. Let the teabaggers and their misplaced sense of importance yell and shout in the corner.

Guy Fawkes
A spokesperson for conservative group Americans For Prosperity told TPM on Thursday the tent's collapse this week during protests outside the state capitol may have been instigated not by union protesters - some of whom were "helping us" after the tent collapse, she said - but rather by "radical anarchists" wearing Guy Fawkes masks and coming from the Occupy movement.http://tpmdc.talkingpointsmemo.com/2012/12/afp-tent-guy-fawkes.php?ref=fpb

Maybe it was Grover Norquist :-)
