10 Lessons for Teabaggers

I found this on Crooks And Liars dot Com and I'm just lazy enough to repost it and feel like I've accomplished something. If you ever find yourself in a conversation with a teabagger-type, these little facts may come in handy:

Here, then, are 10 Lessons for Tea Baggers:

  1. President Obama Cut Your Taxes
  2. The Stimulus is Working
  3. First Ronald Reagan Tripled the National Debt...
  4. ...Then George W. Bush Doubled It Again
  5. Republican States Have the Worst Health Care
  6. Medicare is a Government Program
  7. Barack Obama is Not a Muslim
  8. Barack Obama was Born in the United States
  9. 70,000 Does Not Equal 2,000,000
  10. The Economy Almost Always Does Better Under Democrats
They probably won't listen, but it's worth a shot.
