Crackers With Attitude
Wingnut Hip Hop (Wing Hop?) is nothing new, but we’re strangely charmed by Hi-Caliber, who neatly wraps up all the teabagger memes in four minutes. The ironies are too thick to catalog, but they can be neatly summarized by noting that the video was produced by FreedomWorks, Dick Armey’s corporate astroturf group.
Armey earned $250,000 from FreedomWorks in 2008 for “consulting”. Cal, “a construction worker injured after falling from a ladder,” did the video for free.
Oh, and before you jump to an obvious conclusion: Cal and his African American wife have three kids. Sometimes caricatures aren’t as tidy as we’d like.
