How come Republicans like teabagging so much?

So let me get this straight: Yesterday “tens of thousands” of people (Republicans) across the country (estimated population 307 million) rallied and protested the Obama Administration’s “government spending and taxation” by chanting slogans like “no more spending” and waved signs saying “Over Taxation is Tyranny” and, in at least one case, threw a box of teabags at the White House. Oh, and the governor of Texas has repeatedly made very thin references to his state seceding from the union “if Washington continues to thumb their nose [sic] at the American people.”

This is all a late April Fools Day prank, right? (I would LOVE to see national poll results on the question of Texas withdrawing from the Union.) I mean, they know this is utter, ridiculous nonsense, right? The American people can’t be this flat-out dumb, right?
I mean, they must understand that every Administration in living memory has taxed income so that it can pay for things like our globe-trotting navy and planet-killing nuclear missile stockpile? Do they want us to go back to the old days of balancing the federal budget on the back of a tariff? Do they want to end world trade as we know it? Would they prefer 25 percent unemployment sweeping the nation to the eight percent or so we have now?
This is what’s become of the terrifying, all-powerful Republican Party? Throwing teabags at the White House while spouting gibberish and threatening secession? I mean, the Democrats don’t even have to try anymore to come up ideas: all they have to do is make sure the press covers GOP events, and their work is done.
