VIDEO: The 'Bama Tea Party speech

You might be a right-wing extremist if . . .

I'm actually much better-looking in person.

Stephen Gordon at Liberty Papers has the best roundup on the Alabama Tea Party scene.

4/17: Dear Ross Douthat
4/17: I Question the Timing!
4/16: The World's Worst TV Reporter
4/16: 'Bama Tea: How big is huge?
4/14: Alabama, here I come!


  1. Love the Utah beach analogy and isn't your Southern accent cute!

    Nice job!

  2. ...and it's not as bad as it sounds!

    Excellent speech. Put it up at Hot Air. Send a copy to Jeff Foxworthy.

    Thanks for schlepping down to Alabama.

  3. I don't think you have anything to worry about in the looks department. You have a unique face -- not easily forgotten but in a good way.

    Loved the video and very glad you participated in the Tea Parties.
    You should feature one of those "You Might Be A Rightwing Extremist If ... " things now and then (if Foxworthy doesn't sue you).

    I noticed that you were seduced by the dark side (conservatism) fairly late in life. It took Jimmy Carter for me but I was already having problems fitting Tab A into Slot B with liberalism.

    Better late than never.

    And I didn't even have to sacrifice a hand.

  4. Stacy,

    Your teleprompter worked flawlessly!

  5. I'm actually much better-looking in person."Got to be good lookin' 'cause he's so hard to see..."

  6. I think I have a man-crush on you. Great job, Stacy!

  7. Damn, you're fun to watch!

  8. RSM,

    Awesome job, although I got to spend Wednesday afternoon with the real brains behind your site...

  9. Awesome! That Southern charm came through loud and clear.

  10. As an old "Right Wing Extremist" I can remember (long before you were born) when Gen. MacA said "there is no substitute for victory!" - shortly after HST fired him for daring to fight the ChiCom.

    I killed a few ChiCom for Dougie when fighting the real JFK's war. Which I would no have had to do if Dougie had not been fired.
    "There is no substitute for victory!" Ask any Jarhead! Except maybe your favorite Guny.

    Rod Stanton
    Cerritos, Cal
    DHS I do have firearms and know how to kill with them. A word to the wise.

  11. My ancestors were from Alabama -- they fought for the South from there, actually, Russleville, Alabama.

    I'd sure like to move there and take up where they left off.

  12. Awesome Video in Alabama! I watched it over at Hot Air and was hoping you'd typed up your "You Might Be A Right-Wing Extremist", but you had not. I wanted to share this others, so, I have transcribed your "R-W E's":

    You Might be a Right-Wing Extremist
    R. S. McCain, 04/15/2009

     You might be a Right-Wing Extremist if you don’t bow to Saudi Royalty
     If you believe that the only good pirate is a dead pirate, then you might be a Right-Wing Extremist
     If you don’t think it’s a good idea for politicians in Washington to leave your children saddled with another trillion dollars of debt, and another trillion and another trillion, well then you might be a Right-Wing Extremist
     If you think that you know how to run your own life better than the experts in Washington, you might be a Right-Wing Extremist
     If you believe in God, but you don’t believe that Obama is the Messiah, then you might be a Right-Wing Extremist
     If you believe that the only reason you have First Amendment Rights is because you have Second Amendment Rights, then you might be a Right-Wing Extremist.

    Thanks for the Hard Work and keep it up--we need people like you!

  13. Wow - "they are making fun of you!!"

    Pure victimology crap. Whahhh, whahh, whahh. You are victims! The big "they" are looking down on you!!!

    Unbelievable - that you resort to this incredibly unoriginal demagogic nonsense.

    And there were a hell of a lot of "ummms" and "ehhhss" - more even than an Obama speech. ARe you an imbecile or something?

  14. Have commented here before, agreed with you often, but never knew you were a fellow Southerner. I don't think your accent is "cute" like Pat, I think it's "home." Was in Alabama in November travelling from Georgia to see my brother in B'ham on a Friday afternoon, ate fried catfish at the State Line store off the interstate and had a great conversation with some good, solid, friendly Alabama folks. Felt just like slipping on a comfy old shoe. Thanks for a great speech!
