Tea Party Protesters Protest that the Public Metro Service is Not Up to Scratch.

The tea baggers are like the gift that keeps on giving. Every time you think they can't show themselves up as dumber than they have so far, they confound your expectations and go one better.

They met in Washington to protest about the government interfering with their healthcare, because as we all know the public option is never the best option and it's not one that independent minded souls like the tea baggers would ever choose. It's like that Medicare which they love so much that they are demanding that the government keeps their hands off it. Oh, they're a bright bunch, this lot.

However, whilst in Washington, they did have another complaint on the day: They thought the public transport system let them down. I'm not making that up.

They actually complained that the public option in transport was not up to scratch.

A spokesman for Brady says that “there weren’t enough cars and there weren’t enough trains.”

tweeted as much from the Saturday march. “METRO did not prepare for Tea Party March! People couldn’t get on, missed start of march. I will demand answers from Metro,” he wrote on Twitter.
I would have thought that these opponents of all things public would have avoided a public run system like the plague and opted to travel there by private transport?
Brady says in his letter to Metro that overcrowding forced an 80-year-old woman and elderly veterans in wheelchairs to pay for cabs.
So, finally, they found the private option and now they are complaining? They are demanding that they should have had better access to a better run public option.

When I thought they travelled all the way to Washington to argue that they don't believe in the public option.

And surely Rep. Kevin Brady is the very last person on Earth who should be complaining about the poor service on the D.C. Metro.
But earlier this year, Brady voted against the stimulus package. It provided millions upon millions of dollars for all manner of improvements to … the D.C. Metro.
So, he is complaining about poor service on public transport, when he is in a city to protest against public services being supplied by the government, and yet he was one of the people who voted against a stimulus to improve the public transport system?

As I say... the gift that keeps on giving.

As the picture shows, they can carry signs saying "Your health, your problem", but they are the first to complain when they have to wait too long for a train. Unbelievable.
