Candidates who believe in the Constitution and will strictly adhere to it, instead of trying to bend and twist it to suit their special interest needs.

Either you are ignorant of the term "teabaggers" or you think calling people a filthy sexually divisive name is OK.

So which is it?

Nobody knew what the term meant until a few gays started snickering about it. Even so, who cares what meaning they give it?

The teabaggers themselves, started out identifying themselves as teabaggers----if they can't even stand up and fight for their 'name', their 'brand'....-----what can they stand up for?

BTW: I VERRRRY frequently hear and read the teeps throwing around RINO, trying to insult Republicans----please explain how that kind of namecalling is different, and okay.

Besides rhetoric, could you provide some specific examples?

Could you give some examples of some politicians that you believe don't adhere to the Constitution?

I always enjoy the mock horror expressed by supposedly prim wingnuts about being called teabaggers. Have you ever noticed the tendency of some of these buttoned-up right-wingers to fixate on the sexual aspect of everything, even words with innocent uses?

It reminds me of right-wing Missouri state representative Ed Emery's failed bill a year ago to regulate exposure of parts of the human body. That bill had absolutely lascivious descriptions of nudity. It showed a closet fetishist's devotion to particular parts, particularly vulvas and aereolas.

I think these nut-jobs get a bigger titillation from writing some of these naughty words and repeating them over and over -- when it's clear some of these pervs have frilly Victoria's Secret things under their drab polyester suits.

Oh, I said titillation - that will get me a spanking.

Sure. I'll focus on local examples instead of the national ones everybody can talk about. Look at State Sen. Jim Lembke or Arnold City Councilman Matt Hay. They both talk about protecting the Constitution and support things like initative petition. They also consistently vote against progressive ideas and work to put the power back to the people.

As far as candidates, I've been impressed by two for State Rep. Charles Huey ( www.hueyformissouri.com ) who is running against Meadows in the 101st district. Or John McCaherty ( www.electjohnnow.com ) who is running against Komo in the 90th district. When you read stuff on their sites, you get a sense that they respect the law and the constitution and want to work for people, not against them.

I don't know if Topix has enough bandwidth, but I'll give it a shot.

Start with Arnold City Council in the mid 2000's (Paul Vinson excluded of course). If there has ever been an example of a government body bending and twisting the law and the constitution to suit their needs, it's that group. Along with Bob Sweeney and his loose interpretations of law.

Particularly the likes of Dave Venable, Phil Amato, and Randy Crisler. I think their antics are well documented on here and AT. I've always said that I don't care if you are a liberal, progressive, conservative, or libertarian. If you are working towards the goal of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, and you adhere to the law and the Constitution I don't have a problem. Unfortunately, I don't think anyone with common sense can classify the individuals listed above as showing those qualities when the opportunity to represent people was given to them, IMHO.

Personally, I don't condone the type of name-calling done by both sides of the spectrum. Whether it be liberals calling Tea Party people "teabaggers" (thanks Rep. Roorda, BTW) or talk radio hosts calling liberals "moonbats", it does nothing to move forward on important issues.

What I have a problem with is the same people who supported Iraq War protestors or SEIU members having rallys on healthcare now bashing Tea Party attendees for doing the exact same thing. I believe the definition of that is hypocrisy?

I am buying a megaphone!(made in the U.S.A.)
I am buying a yellow flag (made in the U.S.A.)
I will go alone, or with friends, to every street corner and government building and politician's office I can find.
I want to start a campaign where more people will at least hear about what the federal government is up to
than there are illegal aliens about to be able to vote for Democrats who do not respect the majority's
wishes.
The more that know the agenda behind the present
administration, the more there will be who will vote the tyrants out!

Lembke is funny lookin with those leering eyes. And Huey cannot string a cogent sentence together. Those are PERFECT teabagger candidates.

Poor little Jimmie,
You would lose that bet....I know you got so used to that practice, that you just can't get it out of your head. It's something you dream about every day and fantasize about every night.....
