Tea Party, ca 23 A.D.

I like paying taxes. With them I buy civilization. - Oliver Wendell Holmes

There are truly innumerable examples of teabaggers unwittingly spouting stupefying irony/ignorance (here and here , for example).

But did you know that this tea party mindframe has existed practically unchanged for 2000 years? It's true!

PS: On a serious note, the Obama protesters are actually not at all comparable to the Monty Python crew. Why? Because the while the Romans did tend to levy oppressive taxes on their tributary states, Obama actually cut taxes for 95% of working Americans. Including teabaggers. No shit.

Unrelated, but what the hell.
