The Real Housewives Of The Tea Party

Poor Sam Wurzelbacher! I guess you are not wanted in the new Tea Party, which formed it's own caucus today in congress. To quote caucus leader Michele Bachmann:
the newly formed group will provide a voice in Congress for "real housewives, real farmers, real businessmen, real plumbers."
Not those one-time plumber, now full time metacelebrity wannabes. I just hope that when she says "real housewives" she doesn't mean the reality television show.
Now I'm not saying that the members of the Tea Party are slow, but when you fall for a three year old news story from The Onion, you do come across as gullible. And totally unaware that your movement has been co-opted by the Republican Party and a second rate Howard Beale.

Too funny, conservatives thinking an Onion story was real news. But no, they aren't slow or gullible or anything.

Well, if they believe what they see on Fox News (or read at Breitbart) they'll believe anything...

Bachman is not part of any of those groups of "real Americans."
