What does this mean, exactly?
The Tea Party loves Tim Pawlenty, and they show their love with poorly-made, indecipherable signs.
The above photo was snapped by Darryl Webb at a recent Tea Party summit in (where else?) Phoenix, Arizona.
I read some coverage about the event on AP and in the The Daily. The two takeaways: a) The Tea Party is pissed at Republicans for lying to them and b) what on god’s green earth does this sign mean?
There has got to be more creative ways to assimilate Pawlenty’s name into Tea Party sloganeering. I’m just throwing these out there: “Tea Party loves Tim—Pawlenty (see what I did there?). Or how about “It’s Tim for Tea” (I think I’ve outdone myself).
“Tea-Paw” I can’t wrap my head around. It sounds like an illness your dog extracted after playing in a junkyard. “Oof, looks like Duke here has caught a nasty case of Tea Paw—we’re going to have to amputate.” Or is it supposed to rhyme with “yee-haw”? I hope that’s not it. Maybe she meant to write “Tea Pawty” but ran out of space? “Shit, I’ve gone and run out of space. I guess I’ll just draw some awesome stars in the right corner.
I get the grassroots DIY thing, in fact I encourage it, but the Tea Party is going to need to create and staff a sign-making department. That or there will be signsasters in their future. Which will be long, despite what you’ve heard.
