Michelle Bachman Rally: Not Tea Baggers. Guy Fawkers!
The crazy right walked right into the "tea bagger" double entendre, cluelessly using the imagery, and foolishly trying to use it against the President ("teabag Obama!") before having it turned on their own ridiculous movement. So, when Michelle Bachmann and the faux-grass roots groups bused in a bunch of villagers with metaphorical pitchforks and torches, the fact they did it on "Guy Fawkes Day" is just another nugget of comedy gold for Stephen Colbert.
