They couldn’t take a break from this nonsense on 9/11?

…have they no shame?

While Chris Healy does his usual laughable spin over the anti-Obama feast in Washington this past weekend, (which has been completely debunked), lets take a look back at how the far right fringe disgraced those who perished on 9/11 last week.

For instance, at the anti-Obama feast (a.k.a. tea party) in Bridgeport last Friday, we had this lovely sign on display.


Notwithstanding the fact that the moronic teabaggers who assembled in Bridgeport:

  • didn’t seem to think that holding a partisan political rally on the anniversary of 9/11 would be inappropriate,
  • didn’t think that re-writing the lyrics to the song New York, New York and making it into an anti-Obama song (complete with a kickline) would be inappropriate on the day that thousands lost their lives in New York,
  • failed to take a moment of silence (from their lying and mudslinging) for the victims of September 11th, AND
  • didn’t seem to grasp that fact that the bigoted sign might be a slap in the face to 9/11 victims of Islamic faith and their grieving families members,
  • feel that yelling of threats at innocent people was okay in their playbook

the mere acknowledgment of the sign by the chairman of the Bridgeport Republican Town Committee, and the response from those in attendance, speaks volumes when it comes to the mindset of today’s GOP.

To add insult to injury, we had this moronic moment of stupidity done in both Hartford and Bridgeport (on a day of remembrance).

You just gotta love the timing when it comes to changing the lyrics to the song New York, New York in order to make a cheap political statement…

Remember, this lapse of common decency was done on a day when eight years ago, the country put partisan rhetoric aside to mourn the loss of 3,000+ people of all walks of life who were tragically killed in a matter of hours.

…have they no shame?
