They know what they know.

The New Rules are good, but wait til Maher makes the comparison between the Tea Partiers and cults :

In a recent poll almost ninety percent of Tea Baggers said that they thought taxes had either gone up or stayed the same under Obama. Only two percent thought they went down. But the reality is taxes have gone down for ninety five percent of working families taxes went down.

Think about that. Only two percent of the people in a “movement” about taxes named after a tax revolt have the slightest idea what’s going on…with taxes.

Transcription from Crooks & Liars, though I swear I had the idea to blog this clip before I saw it there.

As one strips away the claimed motivations of the teabaggers, the list of possible explanations just grows darker and uglier.

    There was a movement to end slavery. There was a movement for the voting rights of women. There was a movement to end the wars in Indochina. What’s this movement about? Like the Sarah Palin media phenomenon the Teabaggers make good ad copy but they sure as hell aren’t going to win you any elections. No matter how many times they claim to represent a majority of voters.
