How to fight the Teabaggers
  by Sherrod Brown


History tells us that rage on the Right should not be confused with populism. The far right attacks
government regulation as it feeds Wall Street and the insurance companies. It rails against government
spending for the least privileged as it lavishes tax cuts favoring the most privileged.

We already know the damage that comes from the right's rage. During President Clinton's eight years,
our country added more than 22 million private sector jobs, incomes went up, and we enjoyed the
largest budget surplus in U.S. history.

In the following eight years of the Bush bastards, only 1 million jobs were added, incomes stagnated
or plummeted for most Americans, and we were left with record budget deficits.

Yet Republican candidates in 2010 are offering the same faux populism and "solutions" of the Bush years:
more tax cuts for the rich, deregulation of special interests, and trade agreements that cost us millions of
manufacturing jobs. And in places like my state of Ohio, they are even offering up as candidates the
same people who got us into this mess

Listing the facts is a great way to win arguments and debates.

But do the Teabaggers care about the facts?
If Osama bin Laden wore tea bags, would they vote for him?
