Guys. Relax.

This video is actually pretty pro-Ron Paul.

1) Note the sarcasm in Rachel Maddow's voice when she says "wacky"

2) She's criticizing the left for calling the whole event "astroturf" when it was actually a trend initiated by the RPR (giving more due credit than anyone else in the media)

3) She's making fun of the "mainstream" Republicans for inventing the word "teabagging" while joking that RP Republicans are internet-savvy enough to know not to do that.

Okay, now that we're all pretty internet-savvy, we need to be a bit more sarcasm-savvy and youth-savvy. And take a chill pill! It's actually pretty funny, if a bit sophomoric. Not all humor can be high humor!

Saturday night live?

Do they think they are on Saturday Night Live?

Why are they so promoting "teabagging" and urban dictionary?

Smarmy humor by dim wits.

These 2 make me sick

I'm sure both these bull dikes couldn't wait till the segment ended so they could run off together. It's so obvious the elite are trying to co-opt the patriot movement. Any one going to tea parties, make sure you let it be known that we are against BOTH parties, and that both parties are owned by the same small group. It makes me sick the media is trying to link us in with fat arse pill popping Rush Limbaugh and the like! Unfortunately, I'm afraid that most clowns going to these tea parties don't have but the slightest inclination why they are there. Arrive with dvds in hand my friends!

A nation of sheep will beget a government of wolves.

She'll do anything

to protect her socialist agenda... What a duche-bag.

Even though he lowered taxes? Did I hear that right? Raising the cigarette tax over one dollar a pack, higher taxes on tobacco, cigars, etc. is not lowering anyones taxes. Making money out of thin air and fueling inflation is a hiddeen tax on the people. This man is not lowering taxes one iota... Maddow ... you are a foolish lezzie... Hope your peeps read this.. as the roam through the Ron Paul sights... Looking for one person that does not agree with the Tea Parties.


Ron Paul for POTUS 2012

It's time! Rand Paul 2016!

"Truth, Justice, and the American Way!"

What the hell is so "wacky" about protesting taxes?

I hate the smugness between both of these women!

"Get to the choppa!"

"Get to the choppa!"

Who is maddow? I never watch MSNBC

I hope the tea parties don't turn into obama bashing unless we include bush bashing and congress bashing too.

Is this for real?

MSNBC has officially hit a new low. This segment was absurd. Imagine if the teaparties actually have an effect...

Wait a minute..Wacky?

Freedom is wacky? WTF is wrong with this nation!. Love of freedom+MSM=Wacky? I am glad I am off the boob tube for good. Freedom is not wacky. Freedom is popular.


she just lost a LOT of credibility with this one.

Smug alert

Watch this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IxHoWEdcbcM

That's her reaction to Bobby Jindal's response to Obama's State of the Union Address.

What the H@!!

When did Rachel go over to the Onion?

No one called it teabagging

The one guy said "Teabag the fools in D.C." Again, ONE GUY. And he didn't say teabagging. And if someone did say it, it was probably meant as a derogatory smear i.e. similar to "Let's ream those a-holes in Washington!"

All this talk on Rachel Meadow about teabagging is so disingenuous as if we don't know why we are protesting. Talk about propaganda. And Krugman is even worse. These leftist propaganda machines are really annoying.

Register as Republican and Vote for Ron Paul

You got it.

…Amazing how one stupid little word alters idiots’ understanding of a matter.

I’m glad you guys are thinking; I don’t think anybody else is.

What moron started calling this “teabagging”?

By the way, observance of the whole urban dictionary concept merely gives a clearer view of how society embraces foolishness. Most people consider being a member of the in crowd many times more important than being right.

Good thing you bull dykes have the urban dictionary, otherwise, you wouldn't know teabagging from an ironing board. Since Dr. Paul is an OB/GYN, perhaps he can give you lezzies a few tips for your douche-bagging parties.

LOL HAAAAAAAHAHA thank you I needed that!

Maddow is trying to be slick

and ended up sounding sick and sophomoric.

Her ploy (constantly) is to mock anyone who would oppose O'Bomba, and the "Neo-Liberal" agenda. (She was against the wars before she was for them)

Maddow is not just some airhead guiding her meager audience through the pitfalls of "conservatism" - She is a RHODES SCHOLAR (like Clinton) who was trained at Oxford to accept and promote Fabian Socialism, and covert British domination. (AKA New World Order)

The weak attempt to merge the Ron Paul Revolution with Neo Cons and Fox news was really transparent. (unlike the Cousin Barry Admin.) As in; we too are ignorant, and unable to understand Woodrow Wilson Inst. Krugman, and the virtues of Neoliberalism. (Better to not ask people like Krugman why he did not anticipate the "Financial 911" they are now providing the "solutions" for. )

Remember always... MSNBC is owned by GE. Cui Bono?

"First they ignore you, then they ridicule you, then they fight you, then you win."

Hope to see some of you in Austin Tomorrow!

Whacky ideas? Here we go again. I really hate Old Media

I hope these two shills burn in hell.

I was the guy screaming, “The Federal Reserve prints money. Why can’t I!” Rachel was pretty stern against the Tea Parties and openly mocked us for our efforts. All of it can be seen at the YouTube link I have provided.

I would like an opportunity to defend my position as to why the Federal Reserve is important. If you patriots feel like it, please email Rachel (Rachel@msnbc.com) to encourage her to invite to a telephone conversation with her on air.

rachel, come to the light ~

Listen to Constitutionalist Jonathan Turley ... once more !


Word: My Democrat (former) party once was proudly anti-war and pro-civil liberties! Now it promotes the centuries-old, sacred yearning of free people everywhere ... entitlements and health insurance! [sarcasm].

The democrats have lost their way ... drop the left/right pardigm and realize you are being manipulated and ... come join the R[EVOL]UTION

your words, rachel ...

from the NY Times:

Favorite Republican: I like the congressman and presidential candidate Ron Paul, because I understand what he believes, and he is fearless and civic-minded in his beliefs, rather than personally zealous. ~ Rachel Maddow


Guess who is lefty Rachel Maddow's favorite Republican?


From urbandictionary.com "To have a man insert his scrotum into another person's mouth in the fashion of a teabag into a mug with an up/down (in/out) motion."

This is what the moron Maddow and her idiot friend Cox keep making fun of, and when your last name is Cox should you really be making fun of teabagging?

Those two dudes are annoying

They seem suprised that people may actually believe in something. What a couple of goofs.


..haha.. dudes..
