lessons for the 9/12ers

Jon Perr's "Ten Lessons for Tea Baggers" at Crooks and Liars could go a long way toward correcting the misconceptions that fostered so many of their signs--if only they cared:

1. President Obama Cut Your Taxes
2. The Stimulus is Working
3. First Ronald Reagan Tripled the National Debt...
4. ...Then George W. Bush Doubled It Again
5. Republican States Have the Worst Health Care
6. Medicare is a Government Program
7. Barack Obama is Not a Muslim
8. Barack Obama was Born in the United States
9. 70,000 Does Not Equal 2,000,000
10. The Economy Almost Always Does Better Under Democrats

These Teabagger interviews (h/t: vjack at Atheist Revolution) are even more dismaying than their signs:

The interviewer has a great comment after echoing one marcher's remarks:

"Fascism, socialism, communism...these things are apparently interchangeable--if you don't know what they mean."

Sadly, that's an all-too-common problem. I guess we should add political science to the other subjects on the teabaggers' remedial refresher list: history, civics, religion, geography, mathematics, and economics.
