    She looks like Orly Taitz. Or is that a feature rather than a bug?

    And can she have some tea bags dangling from a hat?

    “massive” culminating teabonics rally in DC yesterday:

    A day earlier organizers downplayed expectations, saying only about 5,000 to 10,000 people were expected to show up because they have encouraged people across the country to cultivate protests in their hometowns.

    The crowd at the earlier of two rallies scheduled for Thursday was not a huge one by Washington, D.C., standards, coming in at about 3,000 to 4,000 people.

    compare:

    The Guardian, Monday 17 February 2003 02.01 GMT

    Last night’s protest in San Francisco was the last in a weekend of American mass demonstrations.

    In New York on Saturday organisers counted 400,000 demonstrators who, forbidden by a court order from marching, rallied within sight of the United Nations amid heavy security. They were joined by the South African archbishop Desmond Tutu, and actors Susan Sarandon and Danny Glover.

    We had a thousand show up in downtown Chicago with their hasty-pastyness.

    But it doesn’t matter. Like Caribou UglyBarbie, they get the attention even though they don’t do shizbit but whine. And anger. And bittery buttery frosting at the mouth. At teh poors.

    Y’know, people like themselves.

    Meanwhile, people marching for Comprehensive Immigration Reform are dwarfing the ertards but they get scant attention. Wonder why that might be…

    Um… this “Tea Party Barbie” is a straight-up ripoff of Atheist Barbie, which is a reaction to someone else’s Episcopal Priest Barbie. (See here for details.) If they want to remix a Tea Party Barbie, fine, but to co-opt Atheist Barbie to do so… man, that’s low.

    Fun fact! Gay Bob was anatomically accurate. When Gay Bob , ahem, came out I couldn’t afford one but was lucky to have a friend who could. We glued together a Gay Bob and a Ken doll _in flagrante_ and put it in a display case in the student union at our Catholic college. Hilarity ensued.

    The godly chumps are really annoying with their “repent, heathens” schtick. When confronted with my lack of religion, I just tell ‘em, straight-faced, “Thank god I’m an atheist!”. Totally fucks ‘em up. I could not care less about their sensitivities, they have not shown me any compassion or acceptance. Domenench even steals someone else’s slur and then lies about his remorse at the inaccuracy of the original lie. The teatard Barbie was deemed a “Palin lookalike, and just as empty-headed” by creaturette, to much snickering. All in all, a great thread. Got here late, taking care her w/ two abcessed teeth, whilst sweating possibly pregnancy problems. At least I’m out of work (“layed off” last week), so I can.

    I’ve sometimes wondered, could we get rid of the teabaggers, if we advertised a huge tea party convention that was placed in the middle of nowhere, preferrable hundreds of kilometers from nearest city, in area with no cell phone connection, an unhospitable place at the end of some old abandoned road.

    All we would need to do is set up signs on the road pointing to the meeting place (empty slot), and make sure the distance is longer the most SUV:s go on full tank.
    Could one get the teabaggers hundreds of kilometers away from civilization, without working phones, without fuel to drive back, and without too much food (they might bring some snacks to the meeting, but how long would those last)? And what would happen?

    Deepak Chopra? I know somebody who played a round of golf with him, said he was THE BIGGEST poor sport whiny baby he had ever played with. Conclusion: ATHEISM WINS!

    All this time I thought Deepak Chopra was a rapper.

    Google “the great disappointment.”
    When Prophecy Fails \ The falling motion…

    There is something inexpressibly sad about the way the creator / plagiarist of Tea-Party Barbie has felt obliged to include the horn-rimmed glasses as a signifier of “shows that she reads”. If (a) you accept that you face a stereotype of “ignorant and illiterate”, and (b) you think that sticking glasses on a barbie will convince people otherwise, then you might as well admit that the cause is lost.

    Any chance that Klaus Tea-Party Barbie is a piece of snark, latched onto by Ms Lopez out of dimwittedness?

    Ha! Glasses-wearing only shows that eyes were less intelligently designed than they might have been.

    Evidently not. The original Tea-Party Barbie seems to be from Op-Toons Review. Op-Toons Review is trying to be a conservative version of The Onion, and is about as funny as you would expect a conservative version of The Onion to be.

    The uncredited Tea-Party Barbie showed up on April 12, four days after Atheist Barbie was posted on Blag-Hag.

    It did not even live up to those low expectations. Every time I see something like this I am reaffirmed in my belief that liberals could make better, funnier conservative comics than actual conservatives. Hell, I bet liberals could even make more convincing arguments for conservatism than conservatives do.

    One thing you can definitely say for atheists: the odds in favor of an irrevocable atheist schism* that leads to a long massive bloody war/s don’t exactly give a bookie a hard-on, eh?

    “So, about that whole immortal-UberVoltronoid-sky-being thing – what do you think?”

    “Sure smells like a jar of snake-oil to me.”

    “Hey, me too! Okay, war officially cancelled due to unity – terribly sorry to’ve gotten you all up out of bed so deucedly early for this, folks … right, well … dancing off to the local meadows for some nice wholesome heathenish cavorting it is, then.”

    Case in point: ObamaCare resembles Rhode Island Senator John Chaffee’s 1994 alternative to ClintonCare, which had half the Republican caucus as co-sponsors.

    Has anyone told BlogHag that she was ripped off?

    Ah, don’t feel that way. I can think of several good things about this business…

    (1). It introduced people (including me) to your site.
    (2). Your original Atheist Barbie was genuinely funny, and it’s now more widely known.
    (3). In comparison, the Tea Party Barbie rip-off was so inept and humorless that the perpetrators made themselves look like jackasses.
    (4). The whole thing gave us a fine opportunity to heap scorn and ridicule on right-wing jerks, which is something we enjoy doing.

    Could be worse. The real Barbies now feature a “Ladies of the 80s” line, among which is a Joan Jett Barbie.

    They even pared down her boobs to match JJs.

    She’s missing the ubiquitous Obama-as-Joker image. It’s the essential Tea Party image. Unoriginal, and devoid of any message other than “Obama is bad.” Seriously, the Tea Party facebook group was using it as their profile picture.

    Now I’m off to find Joan Jett Barbie.

    The crowd at the earlier of two rallies scheduled for Thursday was not a huge one by Washington, D.C., standards, coming in at about 3,000 to 4,000 people.

    A hundred thousand demonstrate in the DDR, and behold, the Wall comes down. A few thousand demonstrate against Obama and behold, his party bottles out. More than a million demonstrate in London against the Iraqi war, and behold, there is no effect at all. Now what does this tell us?

    The book should be “Going Rogue” (“Turner”‘s for the menfolks), and the hair should be a short, gray, hairsprayed helmet. And the face should be much fatter, and pouting sullenly.

    Then I would buy this action figure. As long as it came with a toy Junkpuncho, with Real Junk-Punching Action.
