I fuss; You fuss; We all fuss ’bout taxus

This is it, huh. This is the new Republican strategy. The woman-diversity tactic was a wash. The We-got-our-own-Black-guy gambit was less than ideal. The scary-Black-nationalist-I-hate-Whitey-wife turns out to be a media and fashion darling. Obama can apparently send in the Seals with the best of ’em. The First Puppy is too cute for too many folks to fret about the President “breaking a promise” to adopt a shelter dog.

So now they’re trying to rally around the taxes we all love to hate? And they adopt as part of their rallying cry a verb that has already been taken for quite a different activity? Really?

Well, thanks. Thanks for making things a little bit easier for the new administration in these super tough times. And thanks for forcing me to explain to my mother why that perky Rachel Maddow from the TV box she likes so much was laughing every time her guest said “teabagging.” After I mail in my tax check to the IRS I’ll be sure to send my next therapy bill to the RNC and Fox.
