    Is "Coffee Party" the opposite of "Tea Party"?
    http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/20...

    >>Furious at the tempest over the Tea Party -- the scattershot citizen uprising against big government and wild spending -- Annabel Park did what any American does when she feels her voice has been drowned out: She squeezed her anger into a Facebook status update.

    let's start a coffee party . . . smoothie party. red bull party. anything but tea. geez. ooh how about cappuccino party? that would really piss 'em off bec it sounds elitist . . . let's get together and drink cappuccino and have real political dialogue with substance and compassion.

    Friends replied, and more friends replied. So last month, in her Silver Spring apartment, Park started a fan page called "Join the Coffee Party Movement." Within weeks, her inbox and page wall were swamped by thousands of comments from strangers in diverse locales, such as the oil fields of west Texas and the suburbs of Chicago.

    I have been searching for a place of refuge like this for a long while. . . . It is not Us against the Govt. It is democracy vs corporatocracy . . . I just can't believe that the Tea Party speaks for all patriotic Americans. . . . Just sent suggestions to 50 friends . . . I think it's time we start a chapter right here in Tucson . . . <<

    Interesting.

    A coffee party to drown out the Tea Party....

    This one is getting started, so look for some real "brainy" comments...

    We could say they are spending like drunken sailors. That would be unfair to drunken sailors, they're spending their OWN money.

    I don't think they know where the Tea Party gets its name.

    What's their beef then?

    Government isn't big enough? ( have a department of the underterrior and one for the overterrior!)

    They want more taxes? ( lets tax 'em for sleeping and see how long they can avoid payin' that one!)

    Want to give the Nanny State more power? ( Lets make Obama Emperor already!)

    They think the Bill Of Rights is getting in the way? ( excute everyone at the Tea Parties already!)

    Or is it just that you got everything you wanted, and being Moonbats, you're still pissed off ( I'm protesting for having nothing to protest!)

    Bad new DU, you can't be in power and be oppisition.
