And Now They Have A Party...

Teabaggers, the political party: (via dkos)

A Florida conservative has registered an official "Tea Party" with the office of the Secretary of State, and is promising to run candidates against Republicans and Democrats in state and national races.

"The current system has become mired in the sludge of special interest money that seeks to control the leadership of both parties. It’s time for real change,” says Orlando lawyer Frederic O’Neal, the new party's chairman, who couldn't be reached immediately by phone, in a press release.

A spokeswoman for the Florida Secretary of State, Jennifer Davis, said the party had registered in August, and that its qualified candidates will appear on the ballot in the state.

O'Neal compared his party's role to that of the Conservative Party in New York's 23rd District. Florida, however, lacks the "fusion" rules that has allowed third parties in New York to amass influence by offering their ballot line to acceptable major-party candidates.

It's gonna be just like NY-23! You know, that race where we ran a nutcase in one of the most conservative districts in the country and he still lost.

Let's be like those people!


  1. ok, that is enough. this tea party joke isn't funny anymore.

  2. the "tea party"...? *GROAAAAAAAN* well at least that soundly splits the conservative vote. hopefully once and for all.

  3. A split conservative vote is a good conservative vote

  4. well i will make a party too then. the Nut Sack Party. Our party motto is that we put tea baggers to shame.

  5. if the conservatives ever wanted a grass roots movement this is it. nothing says i am not elitist like a tea party.

    what a lovely tea party. i say, pass the tea and crumpets would you? oh, dear! out of tea?! i shall have to inform lord Billsby to these unfortunate events. I shall write to him immediately. Young man fetch me my pen and quill. I have a letter in need of urgent dictation.
