A coalition of over 400 Democrat and liberal political groups gathered at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, DC, in what was called an “antidote” to the Tea Party. All the signs being displayed were carefully spell-checked beforehand, and there were no depictions of national leaders as Hitler or evil clowns.
“We want to take back America” said one speaker, “as long as everyone agrees we should and no one’s feelings get hurt.”
Other speakers added their cries: “We shall overcome as long as everyone comes along”, “Please let us have more jobs”, and “If no one minds, I’d like to keep control of the Congress in 2010”.
Each speaker began with a long apology about how terrible they felt having to say such harsh things, and how they wouldn’t need to if “the conservatives would just be cool”.
