Get Skooled on the Issues
If the Tea Party has its way, you’ll be getting a call soon, because you simply have not been told the truth about the real Obama. Oh, yeah. Don’t you kid yourself. The lamestream media has been at it again, covering up, and whitewashing critical information to allow their Kenyan messiah to dismantle our liberties, use the Constitution to line the bottom of their bird cages, and turn the whole country over to their secret overlords at the United Nations.
The Tea Party has been hard at work sending out blast emails. I know this because I get them. I get them to peek into the minds of those on the other side of my political fence. Don’t get me wrong, President Obama has disappointed me on more than one occasion. I can tend to hold political grudges as much as the next guy, and I’m still none to pleased with giving immunity to the telecom companies – and that was four years ago. And I’m still fuming over the Telecommunications Act of 1996, and NAFTA. And that was a whole other Democratic presidency.
But that said, there are those for whom their issue with the current President is not rooted in a concept I like to call “reality.”
Some of those people are also subscribed to this very same Tea Party mailing list, that sends out a breathless daily email about the latest scandal, secret videotape, or horrifying revelation about “America’s Fraud President.”
I tend to delete them after reading, but here are some of the latest subject lines that survived the week in my inbox:
You can see how it might be difficult to keep up with all the latest “news” and “information.” But you can also see how voters, who have already decided that their Tea Party newsletter is a trusted source, may be behaving in ways that make no sense to most of us.
Here’s a clip from this morning’s fare:
That’s right America, your greenbacks can end the ‘corrosive silence’ of the media about the racist, illegitimate, socialist, Muslim “president” whose marriage was arranged by a Christian pastor. Quick, spend those dollars now before the government takes them anyway. Just $2,300 will spread the word to 10,000 households. Take their word for it.
Earning your keep by robocalling misinformation to the low information voter is part of the hard work ethic of the American Dream. It’s the free market. It’s… economic Darwinism.
I almost hope they call me.
