Explaining the Tea Party and the US debt-ceiling farce
August 1st, 2011
If you’ve been wondering what the hell’s been going on in America in the past few days, you could do worse than watch this satirical take from Taiwan-based Next Media Animation. The tea partiers are portrayed as gun-toting babies, and a “highlight” come when one of these mewling and puking infants reaches into his nappy (diapers) to extract a steaming turd, which he hurls at house speaker John Boehner. Okay some of the imagery is simplistic and crude, but it is kind of funny in a blackish way. For a more clear-headed analysis of who and what gains from this debt deal read John McDermott over on FT Alphaville.
