The title almost sounds French so I must quickly apologize to any Tea Party patriots reading. I meant no disrespect. You guys certainly don’t surrender as easily as they do! A little history joke! (Too bad most Americans only remember them helping us out during our revolution… I think they sent crepes to Valley Forge, not sure.)
Fellow Americans! I am taking a moment out of my wretched liberal existence here in Hollywood to present a gift to the Tea Party. Yes, indeed, I have cancelled tonight’s orgy with Alec Baldwin and Barbra Streisand. I told John Cusack he would have to smoke his Mary Jane and eat his mushrooms alone in Joshua Tree park this weekend. I even ended my Skype session with Rosie O’Donnell in the middle of her using foul language!
I did this, countrymen, so I could bring you a very important video. A patriotic video that does what the media elites won’t do — Thanks the Tea Party for their patriotic work on the debt ceiling negotiations… Because someone has to!
If you are moved as I was, please pass this on to a Tea Party member you know. Then hug them tightly (keeping your pelvic area out of the danger zone).

Loving the response. From press release:
Salon.com’s editor, Joan Walsh, retweeted the video Sunday and then returned a half hour later, writing, “Still laughing at @MRDCDouglas Tea Party thank you. Ending Social Security will let seniors share their wisdom with the homeless!”
Online websites such as Daily Kos, Crooks & Liar’s Video Cafe, The Immoral Minority, Veracity Stew, and Political Irony began posting it as part of the larger national narrative that links the Tea Party’s intransigence during the debt ceiling negotiations to the credit downgrade.
Apparently this is not without some merit. In Standard & Poor’s statement, they wrote “[T]he downgrade reflects our view that the effectiveness, stability, and predictability of American policymaking and political institutions have weakened at a time of ongoing fiscal and economic challenges to a degree more than we envisioned…”
