'Mean Maureen' vs Teabaggers


As I sat above the Hoover Dam under the broiling sun, I was getting jittery.
There was Gov. Jan Brewer of Arizona, speaking at the dedication of a bridge
linking Arizona and Nevada 890 feet above the Colorado River.

As the politicians droned on and my Irish skin turned toasty brown, I worried that Brewer
might make a citizen’s arrest and I would have to run for my life. She has, after all,
declared open season on anyone with a suspicious skin tone in her state.

We are in the era of Republican Mean Girls, grown-up versions of those teenage tormentors
who would steal your boyfriend, spray-paint your locker and, just for good measure,
spread rumors that you were pregnant.

These women — Jan, Meg, Carly, Sharron, Linda, Michele, Queen Bee Sarah and sweet
wannabe Christine — have co-opted and ratcheted up the disgust with the status quo that
originally buoyed Barack Obama. Whether they’re mistreating the help or belittling the
president’s manhood, making snide comments about a rival’s hair or ripping an opponent
for spending money on a men’s fashion show, the Mean Girls have replaced Hope with
Spite and Cool with Cold. They are the ideal nihilistic cheerleaders for an angry electorate.

Hey Dragon Lady, why are you attacking your peeps?

Don't try to come back to our side, we don't want you.
You're Dennis Miller with a vagina (not a compliment.)

Stay on the side of the haters because we have no use for you.
The last thing the Democrats need is another lying whore.
