Americans for Prosperity, one of the wingnut welfare outfits behind the Great Teabagging, held an event in Wausau, Wisconsin yesterday, keynoted by the man who best personifies the Teabagging movement.
"Obama right now is talking about, he can generate more revenue by taxing the top 2 to 3 percent of Americans," Wurzelbacher said. "Well, you know, that’s immoral. Just because someone’s worked hard, gotten ahead — it’s not your money."
(Psssst. We’ve had this form of "immoral" taxation, endorsed by Teddy Roosevelt, for the better part of a century. Also.)
Wurzelbacher has a reputation for being a blunt, politically incorrect speaker. Referring to Sen. Chris Dodd, D-Conn., more than once, Wurzelbacher asked, "Why hasn’t he been strung up?"
I’m not sure I’d use the term "politically incorrect" for calling for the lynching of a sitting US Senator. But don’t stop him, he’s rolling.
Referring to the Constitution as "almost like the Bible," Wurzelbacher said of the Founding Fathers: "They knew socialism doesn’t work. They knew communism doesn’t work."
Here, Joe is undoubtedly citing that totally kickass Federalist Paper in which Alexander Hamilton and James Madison put the beatdown on Marx and Engels. Suck it, leftards!
After speaking, Wurzelbacher signed autographs and posed for pictures with the crowd. In a brief interview Thursday, he said a recent Time magazine report that he had left the Republican Party was false.
Sweet! I would pay BIG money to see Joe interview Sarah Palin.
