Vice President, Joe Biden, is getting publicity, yet again, from another interesting, seemingly muttered, comment. Something like, ‘The alternative to a Democratically controlled Congress is the “Republican Tea Party”. (Source)
And Washington is in an uproar. This is being called, Biden’s Tea Party comments. Capitol Hill is flustered; the Republicans strongly denouncing Biden’s comments, and the Democrats lightly distancing themselves from them.
And America, once again, should laugh.
Biden’s comments are right, after all. The Republicans are a mess, and they seem to swirl in and out of some odd, right-wing, conspiracy-driven, racism-fueled, and, finally, uneducated banter.
That is what Biden called the Republican Tea Party. And he’s right, except it should be called the Republican whiskey party, with the haggard, rag tag, unruly, slurring, incoherent flash mobs the tea party usually produces in random spots like outside the gates of the White House, and Pizza Hut.
Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) remarked how unhealthy Biden’s comments were, especially to criticize “people getting highly engaged in the electoral process…” (Source)
Well, Bob Corker, with out any respect coming from me, I say, these are the people who get the likes of Christine O’Donnell taking a shot at a seat in Senate.
The Republican Tea Party, Mr. Corker, is not only highly engaged in the electoral process, but highly engaged in maintaining a racist white America, and highly engaged in maintaining a collective American attitude that might cynically be called arrogant and ‘stupid’. The Tea Party is highly engaged in supporting and continuing America’s devastating invasion into Middle Eastern countries.
An American state without thought, consciousness, or intelligent life.
So Biden’s either/or statement shouldn’t be judged as ‘good’ or ‘bad’, (what is good or bad, anyway? That doesn’t even make sense), but as an observation, and not a bad one at that.
