The Tea Party is an evil to be fought against. Just like rapists. No, really.

Don’t take my word for it; that’s the comparison made in this ad for Jennifer Wexton, a former prosecutor running as a Democrat for an open Virginia state senate seat. As you’ll see, I’m not exaggerating in the headline:

This must be more of that new, more civil tone the Democrats like to preach to Republicans about, in which case I’d hate to learn their definition of “rude.” Not only does she insult the good citizens of this country who have chosen to support the principles of limited government by comparing their activism to one of the worst crimes imaginable, she also insults the victims of those crimes. What a rape victim suffers is horrific; to compare it to the results of constitutionally protected political activity is moronic.

Normally, I wouldn’t take notice of state-level legislative races outside of my own state, but Ms. Wexton’s ad warrants making an exception. Her Republican opponent is John Whitbeck, and control of the Virginia senate might depend on the results of the race.  A vote for him might just send a message that comparing innocent citizens to rapists isn’t a smart thing to do.

    Some serious cray cray going on there. SMH.

    The really sick part is that Wexton’s ugly comparison isn’t too much worse than what the Tea Party advocates have been hearing from the Establishment GOP types.

    The 2012 U.S. Government Report on the Financial Condition (of the United States Government) lists (p.62) “Total present value of future expenditures in excess of future revenues” as: $38.554 trillion.

    Can’t think of a better reason to have a Tea Party. And God forbid, they actually have these crazy rallies where they pick up after themselves upon leaving. Jeez, what terrible evil hateful people they are. :)

    The fantasy narrative about upheaval in the GOP is much ado about nothing. Though the actors and issues have changed the dynamic remains the same as the fight in the 1880s between the Stalwart Republicans (traditional conservatives) and the Half-breeds (yesterday’s version of RINOs).

    The Tea Party and Libertarian elements will side with the traditional conservatives thereby forcing the establishment types into a lesser role. That is why they are squealing like a hog with its head hung under a gate. The RINOs gave us Dole, McCain, and Romney.

    Before the commiecrats and their acolytes start clapping their hooves in glee, it should be pointed out that they too have their own nest full of sh*t. They are not necessarily the modern-day version of the Harmonist Society.

    All this verbose talk of rapists and the like is only an indication that hate is fear-based.

    Wait a minute, Phineas. You’re talking about a probably-career politician here, so how can you compare him to “innocent citizens,” even if he is a “conservative.”
