We’re here, we’re marshmallows and we don’t want any more of that stuff we don’t like

I’m sure you’ve heard of the Coffee Party — an astroturfical answer to the Tea Parties. Organized by Facebook page and as as spontaneous as you’d expect (though I don’t think this one is a professional job; it’s just too lame).

Yeah, tens of thousands of people can march in dozens of cities over months, and the media never hoid of them. Thirty liberals get together in somebody’s basement, and the New York Times is all over it.

Anyhow, in a fit of laudible silliness, Zombie has started a FB page for the Cocoa Party.

We are 100% weedroots. No astroturf Obama-campaigning former New York Times employees in the Cocoa Movement, no sirree! No grassroots racist fascist redneck Neanderthal Teabaggers either! And no hyper-partisan strategists calling the shots in this movement. We are a spontaneous and collective expression of our desire to forge a culture of ludicrous propaganda that is entirely blame-oriented.

People are having fun with it — and you can, too!

Also note that Stoaty Weasel has a FB account. I don’t know why you’d want to friend it; I never update it. I got it to keep company with the Twitter account I never use.

By the way, having more than one account is a violation of FaceBook’s terms of service. I have one in my slave name, too, so I’ll get myself shunned if I’m not careful.

Actually, according to HotAir.com, the guy who started the coffee party is an Obama campaign worker, and a ‘former’ NY Times correspondant…..

Tell me this isn’t an inside job…..

Aren’t all NYT hacks Obama campaign workers by default?

You SO better accept my friend request, Stoaty. My feelings will be really hurt if you don’t and I’ll cry for hours in my beer Diet Coke.


(or not…I’m pretty adaptable that way, but who wouldn’t want to be friends with a weasel on Facebook?)

Mucus grassy-ass for the rescue, Weez. That ass porn was getting a leetel tiresome. But hey! I got a great deal on Viagrylis, or whatever they’re calling Dr. Porkenheimer’s Boner Juice these days.

Oh, man, David Thorne is funny. Thank you for that, jw.

Who knew you couldn’t solicit money for drugs even in jest in Australia.

SW, I want your “Let’s Move!–ow, I think my leg is broken” art on a t-shirt. Want to wear it as I walk past liberal enclaves. Please. Cafepress it. Do it for the children . . .:)

Weez: Yeah, and who knew the Strine cops would be so fucking humorless about it. It looks like they even forced his host to suspend his account for a brief time.

I’d love to, Mom, but Zazzle is totally anal-retentive about copyright. They don’t recognize the parody exemption At All.

They recently pulled all products with “twilight” in the description — like “a photograph of a lovely waterfall at twilight” — because of that stupid vampire flick.

*sigh* All right. I’ll go settle for Zombie Reagan.

I’ll just have to think fondly of your graphic every time I see that stupid exclamation point on some goobermint sign. 🙂

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
