Conservatives Tea-Bagging Capitol Hill

I'm not sure if you've heard of the Tea Party Movement, but as near as I can tell, it involves conservatives sitting down at tiny tables with their Paddington Bears, Strawberry Shortcake dolls, and the ambitious ones load their Teddy Ruxpins with Rick Santelli's anti-homeowner rant, and they sip a bitter concoction from tiny cups.

Or it could be some kind of protest against "out-of-control government spending" that just took 8 years for them to notice.

In any case, these bonneted freedom sippers have been causing headaches for security personnel on Capitol Hill, reports Politico:
A staffer passes along this E-mail from the Sergeant-at Arms' office:


Suspicious Characteristics Mailing (Tea Bags)

The Senate Post Office has recently seen an influx of envelopes containing tea bags addressed to Senate offices. The envelopes have been irradiated, x-rayed, opened and tested by the Senate Post Office and have been cleared and deemed safe for delivery. However, it is possible some of the envelopes may have loose tea inside.

If you have any questions or concerns about this mailing, you may contact the United States Capitol Police Threats Assessment Section at 4-1495.
My suggestion? When they get these envelopes, they should reply by sending them something stronger to drink, because with the magnitude of this crisis, anti-Obama whining is some pretty weak tea.

Our New Approach to Comments

In an effort to encourage the same level of civil dialogue among Politics Daily’s readers that we expect of our writers – a “civilogue,” to use the term coined by PD’s Jeffrey Weiss – we are requiring commenters to use their AOL or AIM screen names to submit a comment, and we are reading all comments before publishing them. Personal attacks (on writers, other readers, Nancy Pelosi, George W. Bush, or anyone at all) and comments that are not productive additions to the conversation will not be published, period, to make room for a discussion among those with ideas to kick around. Please read our Help and Feedback section for more info.
