    Democrats are identified by the humble and courageous Ass; Republicans by the dignified and intelligent Elephant; I propose that the Tea Party adopt or be defined by the colorful Parrot. A bird-brain to be sure, yet one which repeats simple phrases without thought attached.

    What say you?

    Post a picture of the parrot you hope to represent the mind and soul of their brethren, human bird-brains.

    Democrats are identified by a braying jackass. Hard to improve on that.

    Let's see.. Lefty Parrot phrases beaten into oblivion on this board weekly..

    1) The Social Security Trust Fund is flush with money and solvent thru 2037.

    2) Wall Street greed was the SOLE and PRINCIPLE cause of the housing bubble and meltdown.

    3) The bankers DEMANDED a bail-out.. And Main Street had to pay for their greed and mismanagement.

    4) If it wasn't for FDR -- we'd still be eating beans and farting roses..

    5) Bush completely mismanaged the "enemy combatant" deal and is still guilty of war crimes.

    Hell -- those are the ones I've seen in the past 24 hours on USMB.. You want pictures of parrots? Just ask them for one...

    A parrot in a gilded cage would be the perfect symbol of the teabaggers.

    They only say what their corporate overlords tell them to say.
