You mean that the pic is basically the photo equivalent of Obama's 'official' Kenyan birth certificate?

Maybe ACORN has been handling the 'truthiness' of the tea bagger stuff.

Now, I wonder if someone is going to get the tea baggers started whining about how Medicare and the VA are examples of socialized medicine.

The tea bag babies even have a new hero, who, instead of throwing shoes and going to jail, blurts out crap during a Presidential address and gets a million whacko dollars.

Like I said, one big giant huge tantrum.

Seriously, time to love it or leave it now.

It's the same kind of "repetition is the linchpin of propaganda" behavior we've seen from the same people for 20 years now.

3 points if you can tell me who said that.

Re: Big Tea Party...

The same guy was a genius at "the big lie" style of 'information spreading' that the reds here are currently emulating.

Keep telling the same lie and it then requires others to refute the lie, thereby getting them to lower the level of discourse and draw attention away from the motives of the liar.

___________

The current red party eschews the typical red, white, and black motif of this style of behavior because they just can't abide the black part.

Hey, on the plus side, maybe the tea baggers will start stealing pics of actual tea parties to make the turnout look bigger. One lump, or two?

Well, there's a ringing endorsement of Bush!

And a crushing indictment of Obama...

So, since the polls look bad for both, then you would have to agree that both are terrible.

Why, then, the Bush syncophancy?

Pointing out when the left is telling whoppers about Bush is not to support Bush in all things but to note the left is pathologically lying about him.

Back to the subject at hand..some counterpoint on the thing:

Bloggers claim photo shows millions at "tea party" protest

Over the weekend, conservatives enthusiastically passed around a photo they said showed a huge crowd protesting President Barack Obama's policies during the "tea party" protest on Sept. 12, 2009.

Actually, over the weekend conservatives passed around hundreds of photos showing a vast turnout. The left found one photo from an old rally and proudly proclaimed it was all a fake....ignoring the other hundreds of real photos out there...

They took their marching order, again from:

So, now, the entire news media, even Faux News, showing yet again Murdoch's hatred of the USA, is in on the conspiracy to turn millions into 10,000's?

Re: Big Tea Party...

I feel so badly. I knew the reply would not be one that acknowledged the fakery, but one that would somehow turn it into a leftist attack on truth.

I should have pre-mentioned that type of BS reply, but forgot.

Amazing cvoincidence that all the pics of big crowds are fakes.

I would suggest taking a look at many pics, especially the ones from the back of the crowd, and then factor in the fact that the person taking a pic like that typically wants to make the crowd look as big as possible, so will go to the last row of humanity and shoot forward.

Do that and you have about as many people as attend a training camp day for a Redskins workout, or less.

I bet the news media was likely overly generous with turnout data.

You see, I used to make the odd (in) bad (taste)joke.

After I received the 'you bad person, you' shocked and sour looks, I'd say, 'Man...that went over like Pan Am over Scotland'.

Actually, no...the old media is simply doing what the old media does, deflating numbers for conservatives and hyping numbers for leftist events..no conspiracy, but knee jerk day to day operation for the dying media. The hundreds of other sources from the new media have it right...

The "conspiracy" simply comes down to the old line "Who you gonna believe, the NY Times of your own lying eyes"...the left closes their eyes and pretends. The right has seen the hundreds of photos and videos and know the lefts numbers are way short...we believe our eyes...the left their latest installment of talking points from the DNC Fax...

Conspiracy, no...media bias, but of course.

So, what are the odds that among all the thousands of 'actual' images, the one you posted here was a fake?

Only one fake?

There's more!

Here ya go:

Oops, the tea baggers forgot to air brush in the new buildings!

It's INCREDIBLE that poor honest you got hold of that rogue pic and plastered it up here as an example of the massive turnout!

What are the odds from amongst the thousands of legit pics you'd post a fake one? (I'll let you post your own odds statistics, but I'd go with 99% percent chance of you using a fake photo, eh?... ...

A helpful hint for next time: The ones with lots of people are the fake ones!

Re: Big Tea Party...

That is it, the one...and no one knows who first posted it...as the organizers warned of provocateurs, media lying, and low balling numbers weeks before the event, I would suspect some useful idiot from the left posted the thing and then ratted it out as a fake...

Besides...no reason to prove anything...those who were there know better, those who have seen the photo's know better and more importantly...so does Congress. They legislate at their own political peril.

"That's it, that's the one?"

What about the one you posted!

Good one on the vast left wing consipracy to discredit to tea baggers. In all seriousness, they are doing
a perfectly fine job on their own!

Hey, here's a pic of the recent "Young Teabaggers" gathering in Central park!

Check out the crowd!

Re: Big Tea Party...

Stephen, happy birthday to you, too. Virgo or not, you'll no doubt turn out better than all the rest of us put together. After all, you have a lot more time ahead of you to figure it all out.

KBK, you don't really believe in this astrological bullshit, DO you? I have just the market analyst for you. Arch Crawford. At every inflection point, in every market sector, he calls a major market turn, all because some astro-whore is sitting in the lap of some zodiacal pimp with an astronomical hard-on. And he is wrong every time. Bless his soul, he rakes in millions a year from the same folks who consult the page next to the funnies for instructions on what to do this evening.

Write a newsletter. It is big business. And the beauty of it is, it doesn't matter whether you are right or wrong with your forecasts. Believers are believers, and they merely get annoyed when confronted with the facts.

It's supposed to be funny. It isn't for the faint of heart though. You need to be able to dish it out as well as take in this arena.
