Shock: CNN Promotes Sanka Party

Talk about a "made for TV movie."

CNN is touting the Coffee Party as an alternative to the Tea Party movement, noting the number of CP followers on Facebook already outstrips that of the Tea Partiers.

Funny, I don't recall hearing of any actual Coffee Party protests. As for the group out of central casting that CNN interviewed, I thought they were as diverse as any pair of film directors organizing their third fake grass roots campaign could hope to find.

Update: On second thought, calling them the Kopi Luwak Party is probably more appropriate than Sanka, considering their desire to swill massively overpriced crap that no person in their right mind would ingest, and which would bankrupt anyone who swallowed it regularly.

Update: More on one of the CP members from Tim at Left Coast Rebel.

I think some fun can be had with these boobs using the Chock-Full-O Nuts coffee brand. Perhaps crashing their next soiree, with everyone bringing a can as a token of support.

I dug deeper into one of the characters profiled in the piece. It's a must read -

I read on another blog that only 30 people showed up to the St. Louis Coffee Party - which included those already in the coffee shop.

I can't believe the "coffee party" site. Note the racism in the picture and the explanation of the people. They indicate in no uncertain terms that Southerners are backward and ignorant. I guess we are as I can not understand why people are fighting so hard to give up their freedom and bankrupt the country. Maybe one of those smart Yankees can come down here and explain it so me. Make it real simple as I can't understand any of the concepts that our great president puts forth.

Better yet, just let us go our own way like we wanted to in 1860.

CNN is a joke, they are promoting the coffee party worse then MSNBC, the obama network. And you wonder why the ratings are slipping faster than the coffee can tip out their coffee cups
