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.

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.

Don't do that to parrots (or Jimmy Buffet fans). How about the Emu?

Sure, tea partiers are "parrots" who actually go around thinking they should run their own lives and government shouldn't do it for them. Wow, what a bunch of saps...

Wasn't tea-bagger a discouraging enough logo for you? I don't think you care much for the freedom of speech tea party attendees stand for.

HUH?

the tendency to ascribe to another person feelings, thoughts, or attitudes present in oneself, or to regard external reality as embodying such feelings, thoughts, etc., in some way.

A perfect description of the homophobic callous conservatives and one which characterizes many of the posts by the purveyors of idiotgrams on this message board. I posted a humorous thread, albeit one which depicts reality. If I parrot the ideas or words of others I'd be surprised, as I was when I followed PP's link. There is nothing new under the sun, I suppose, but my thread was not plagiarized nor a product of projection.
