    Sadly, Lincoln would have a hard time even being able to join the Republican party the way it has been corrupted over the last 50 years or so…

    @masterskrain

    So you are saying that there is no corruption within the democratic party?

    Charlie Rangel ring a bell? And don’t dis the source since it’s all public record.

    But gee whiz, he was “punished” for his crimes by being “censured” by his peers ….. and then put back into office by his constituents. No corruption there. No sir.

    And how about Tim Geithner? Sure it ws just a “mistake”, everybody does it. That’s Obama’s stand. Sort of like putting out a cigarette on the carpet in school. Right?

    Did I say that?
    All I said was it’s sad that Lincoln could NOT get into the Republican Party today.
    And, by the way, I happen to be an Independent voter, NOT a member of either party.
    As Lincoln might say today “It’s my Party, and I’ll cry if I want to!”

    I guess NONE of these organizations use the term anymore then, Gozie…

    Tea Party Patriots, an organization with more than 1,000 affiliated groups across the nation192 that proclaims itself to be the “Official Home of the Tea Party Movement”.193Americans for Prosperity, an organization founded by David H. Koch in 2003, and led by Tim Phillips. The group has over 1 million members in 500 local affiliates, and led protests against health care reform in 2009.190FreedomWorks, an organization led Dick Armey. Like Americans for Prosperity, the group has over 1 million members in 500 local affiliates. It makes local and national candidate endorsements.190Tea Party Express, a national bus tour run by Our Country Deserves Better PAC, itself a conservative political action committee created by Sacramento-based Republican consulting firm Russo, Marsh, and Associates.194195196197For-Profit Businesses:Tea Party Nation, which sponsored the National Tea Party Convention that was criticized for its $549 ticket price.198199200201 and because Sarah Palin was apparently paid $100,000 USD for her appearance (which she put towards SarahPAC202).203Informal Organizations and Coalitions:The National Tea Party Federation, formed on April 8, 2010, by several leaders in the Tea Party movement to help spread its message and to respond to critics with a quick, unified response.204The Nationwide Tea Party Coalition, a loose national coalition of several dozen local tea party groups.Shame that they must have ALL changed their names…

    @masterskrain

    Well, there is this from your comment: “ the Republican party the way it has been corrupted”. So I just thought you said the republican party was corrupted and there for IS corrupt (which I agree with being an independent myself). But I want to make sure you include congress in it’s entirety with that charge so that you can be factual in your comments.

    Leslie Gore? Really? I squeezed a few tomatoes to that one….LOL

    The cartoon shows a stone elephant unable to stand on shattered legs about to collapse on “founding principles.”
    It fails to show the modern day republicans and there democrat “allies” speeding the process along with sledge hammers. Very sad.
    G. Washington – Political parties will divide and weaken the nation.

    @HOWGOZIT

    I’m commenting on your inane statement that the “Only Place you Hear Tea party is on GoComics”.
    Thy Googling it, and tell all the members of TEA Party.org that they are not being heard anywhere except in the comics! (Which, by the way is where they belong.)
    Or Teapartypatrots.org,
    or teapartyexpress.org, or teapartypatriots.ning.org, or
    teapartynation,org, or…shall I go on??

    You are catching on, the first post used big words and could not be understood.
    .
    Dumbing it down may have helped, but we shall see.
    .
    I throw in snarky comments because they are expected, but I follow these strips for the commentators who post background information and statistics.

    You know who you are, thanks.

    The Tea Party only accounts for 8% of the people.
    So go ahead and “primary” those Republicans so you can lose in the general election.

    Lincon was a leader. Obama couldn’t lead if his life depended upon it.

    @Ms. Ima

    The only thing I’m afraid of from the people with the tea bags on their hats is that I will hurt myself from laughing at them!
