A Pesky Teabagger Sign

According to Dale Robertson, Congress = Slaveowners, making taxpayers...


Dave Weigel of the Washington Independent brings the story today of teabagger Dale Robertson and the photo of his unfortunate sign.


Robertson, of TeaParty.Org, carried this especially spirited sign outside a Houston Tea Party in February of last year. The sign declared taxpayers the "niggar" to the government's slaveowner.

...No, Dale. No.

Still, we do appreciate Robertson's use of color, math symbols and poetic license in spelling 'niggar' (after what looks like some sign editing after someone told him 'nigger' on a sign might be overdoing it). Niggar with an 'a' gets the point across without the sting, right?

The Buzz looked up 'niggar', thinking there was perhaps some old, out of vogue definition. We only came up with this.
