This has to be Quote of the Year: “If Tea Partiers Were Terrorists Obama Would Pal Around with Us” – Sarah Palin

Let’s just preface this by noting that when it comes to finding the next scapegoat for screwing up the U.S. Public, no one does it better than professional politicians. From Harry Ried, to John Kerry, and yes, even some Republican’s, but especially those crazy kids at MSNBC (who support Obama, Reid, and their brand of politicians) – the new target – “The Tea Party”. Apparently, those in who are in Congress and Represent the “Tea Party”, are responsible for the slower than usual process that Congress is used to as far as rushing through bills that basically include more money for government and government employees (see Stimulus) and less money in taxpayers pocketbooks. In fact, no matter how often one say it, no matter how much evidence there is, The Tea Party is used as a “catchall punching bag” by the Administration and their friendly media, and are subjected to all types of slurs, simply because the name of the organization actually means “Taxed Enough Already” – and alludes to the famous Boston Tea Party of 1773 – where, you guessed it, our forefathers, or friends of theirs, decided they had been “Taxed Enough Already” by the King, and that kicked off a revolution, and the rest of it, as they say, is history.
It’s not even that those members of the Tea Party refuse to pay taxes, and or don’t’ believe in paying for services that the government provides, they simply feel (and this blog concurs) that we, the people are being squeezed mighty tight by City, State and then the Federal Government. In Massachusetts, just as an example, one pays taxes to the State and “fees” (i.e. a tax with a party dress on) for everything, from your dogs, no joke, to taxes on your cell phones, (even prepaid), your cable, your land line, fees for usage of everything you can imagine, so far, except the air (and that’s probably coming in Deval Patrick’s next round of tax increases). Meal’s taxes, excise taxes, sales taxes, income taxes, real estate taxes, and then the Fed’s kick in – grabbing what’s left and doubling taxes on telecommunications (cable, television, gasoline, and the favorite go to’s: cigarettes and alcohol.) Therefore, if one makes less than say $250,000 a year, one is still paying 30% of their income to the feds and states in payroll taxes and deductions alone – and yes, only 50% of the U.S. Citizens pay taxes, however, that’s the taxes one sees on the Federal level, the ones’ everyone pays, are the taxes on paper goods at the grocers, the taxes that are slapped on business, (state corporate taxes and federal corporate taxes, along with – all the other taxes) that cause layoffs (lack of money) and or higher prices in real goods and groceries (more out of pocket). Suffice it to say, the Federal and State Governments are constantly picking one’s pocket, even when one isn’t looking, so the concept that the Feds, along with some States, need to start acting like the people who’s pocket they pick, by living well within their means in this economy, is not – radical.

Sarah Palin, former Governor of Alaska, a Republican and a Tea Party favorite, not to mention most likely 2012 Presidential Candidate (sometime after August), had the gumption to make a remark about the whole brouhaha caused over Tea Party Congressional members who stalled and demanded basically that there were no tax increases, a balanced budget, and spending cuts to Federal Programs, some of which are duplicates anyhow, but probably employ family members of other Congressional members and/or White House staff. Therefore, speaking plainly and honestly, as she is want to do, (despite rumors to the contrary), Sarah Palin, with great wit and a sense of humor to boot, said: If Tea Partiers were terrorists, Obama would pal around with us!”

Therefore, since no one else appears to have a sense of humor, and is able to use sarcasm with such aplomb, in simple enough terms whereby everyone gets the message (including John Kerry), Sarah Palin, has this blogs “Quote of the Year”, unless of course, she tops it in the next six months – which she might.

What they said: John Kerry “"You know the Chinese are looking at us right now and they are just gleeful and incredulous at the way in which one of the great competitors is imploding on itself, because a group of absolutists and extremists don't understand the implication of what they are doing, and prepared to hold the entire economy hostage and it is unprecedented of anything I have seen in all of the time I have been in public life, and I think it is damaging and dangerous and reckless and irresponsible," Sen. John Kerry (D-MA) told MSNBC.” (Real Clear Politics: Video Included)


A newspaper article on the original Boston Tea Party - image crwflags.com

Joe Biden (The Brilliant Vice President of the United States) with background included:
”Biden was agreeing with a line of argument made by Rep. Mike Doyle (D-Pa.) at a two-hour, closed-door Democratic Caucus meeting.
“We have negotiated with terrorists,” an angry Doyle said, according to sources in the room. “This small group of terrorists have made it impossible to spend any money.”
Biden, driven by his Democratic allies’ misgivings about the debt-limit deal, responded: “They have acted like terrorists.”
(Politico).

Biden, of course, issued an immediate statement staying “I never said that”, of course, someone in the meeting was taping this for posterity”.

Seriously - Run, Palin, Run
