Maybe it stands for ‘Fun, Understanding, Caring, & Knowledge’

Now that the left has run out of ways to dismiss and ignore the Tea Party, they’re just lashing out at it like spoiled children. Ben Smith reports on their latest brilliant scheme:

…the Agenda Project, a new, progressive group with roots in New York’s fundraising scene and a goal of strengthening the progressive movement, has launched the “F*ck Tea” project, which is aimed, the group’s founder Erica Payne wrote in an e-mail this morning, “to dismiss the tea party and promote the progressive cause.”

“We will be launching new products in the next several months to help people all over the country F*ck Tea,” Payne told POLITICO. “Products like a Glenn Beck Bowl Buddy (Beck B Scrubbin) and others are perfect holiday gifts or just a great way to say, ‘I love you and our country’ to your spouse, friend or family.”


Our own Alex Pappas talked to Payne:

“When you look at their world view, somebody has to say f—k that. That’s not the right direction to go at,” she said in an interview.

The effort, Payne said, is meant to make people “stop a minute, and really look at the ideas” of the Tea Parties. While she said she sympathizes with what has motivated many conservative activists, ”I just think their solutions are fundamentally wrong.”

They must be, if a world-stopping genius like Erica Payne disagrees with them.

At least these idiots are being open about their hate now. Remember the Coffee Party? You probably don’t, but they made a half-hearted effort to sound reasonable and conciliatory, and it just came off as false. This is the way to go, Tea Party-haters. Better to just be up front about it and admit you’re a bunch of f*ckheads.

P.S. An NBC/WSJ poll shows: Public favors Tea Party over top Dems. Of course, that was before they saw these brilliant t-shirts!
