I am betting that if you politically aware in United States then you already know about the hundreds of Tea Parties that have been organized all over the country.
And how is that phenomenon being explained by one of the acrtress who also happens to moonlight as a comedian? Beautiful Janeane Garofalo appeared on the Oblermann show and declared that these Tea Parties are nothing but bunch of taebagging rednecks protesting about something they have no clue on.
Unsuprisingly, Olbermann played along and did not challenge the assertion etc.
Personally, I am pro obama but for not all the issues. Similarly there are certain traits that I like better in Republicans. I would have said the same but the Tea parties are quite mainstream. I am sure Americans of all hues will agree to it when it comes to taxes. These taxes are crazily high right now. What ever is left after paying the income tax goes away when you spend it anywhere in the market. If you buy beer, you gotta pay some extra tax. Its totally insane.
I think Janeane Garfalo can do some good acting but in this particular context, she is totally out of her league.
