I dont really see their facts as having any sources nor do I see their website actually SAYING anything.

I dont get why a group like this is necessary, the teabaggers already do plenty to make themselves look ridiculous.

Yeah I've been wondering that too, just saw it on digg and figured I would post it. I figure if we have one crazy right-wing movement it might as well have an anti-thesis.

To that end, the Agenda Project, a new, progressive group with roots in New York's fundraising scene and a goal of strengthening the progressive movement, has launched the "F*ck Tea" project, which is aimed, the group's founder Erica Payne wrote in an e-mail this morning, "to dismiss the tea party and promote the progressive cause."

""We will be launching new products in the next several months to help people all over the country F*ck Tea," Payne told POLITICO. "Products like a Glenn Beck Bowl Buddy (Beck B Scrubbin) and others are perfect holiday gifts or just a great way to say, 'I love you and our country' to your spouse, friend or family."

Payne, a veteran consultant to progressive groups, is a co-founder of the Democracy Alliance, the low-profile group of liberal mega-donors who helped build the Center for American Progress and other new organizations that grew in the Bush years.

What's that phrase that liberals keep throwing around about the tea party? Astroturf?

Given all the vulgar "teabagger" talk it is hardly surprising that someone would take it a step further.

Nobody has any class anymore.

A sad state when people can't tell the trolling from reality anymore...

Several of them are also retired. I'll make you a bet, if the Bush tax cuts stay the majority of the Tea Party dies down.
I think that's doubtful, as their discontent goes to far more than that.

you would lose; the Tea Party was a response to bailout nation, the deficit, and Obamacare, not a threat to the tax cuts.

If it wasnt already blindingly obvious, I have less than no respect for the teabagger movement.
Of course you don't. You describe them using sexual innuendo and baseless racism. Unfortunately that's become the stereotypical Californian.

I normally call them AARP members myself.....also true, need to make sure they get rid of them damn mexicans and those terror babies too, so I take back my previous statement. Since apparently they will all live to be 83 the teabagger movement got what? Another 10 years?

I describe them with a word they used for themselves until they figured out that, oops!, that word means something else! Dont blame me for the angry and ignorant crowd not being "hip" enough or too squeamish to use Google.

And how does putting the teabaggers at the same table as Perez Hilton and reality TV shows make me a "stereotypical Californian"

Bonus points if you get the joke. If you dont, even better, it means you dont spend your life sucking up celebrity gossip.
