Tim Huelskamp thought he was so clever. He went on the Twitter machine and tried to attack President Obama for making a completely non-offensive comedic remark, which was aired on CSPAN.
Here is the thing that got Huelskamp’s feathers all ruffled:
If there’s any one thing that is consistent among ALL Tea Partiers, it’s the feeling that they are entitled to dictate to President Obama how he is, or is not, allowed to live his life. They feel that it’s their place to inform him what he is and isn’t allowed to say and do on even the most minuscule things, such as a witty comment that isn’t even a joke about “race” in the context that Huelskamp suggests.
Twitter saw what he did, and Twitter wasn’t very amused. As a result, people started amusing themselves at Huelskamp’s expense with some of the best comebacks we’ve seen in quite a while.
A few people poked fun at the fact he lost his primary. A Tea Partier in Kansas, of all places, lost his primary. You REALLY have to be bad at your job to manage that. Then, there were all the comments about how the “non-PC” conservatives get their feelings hurt so easily.
It’s really a lot of the usual when it comes to the conservative reactions to anything that Democrats do. The loudest voices do literally nothing to help America, while they blame and shame everyone else about how they aren’t “fixing things,” in a quick enough way to suit them.
What has your average Tea Partier done about racial issues lately, beyond appearing on Fox News to insist that they don’t exist and yelling at black people to work harder? Even they know the answer to that.
