So, I was at the Jersey shore earlier this day.  It was cloudy, windy, and kinda chilly, but fairly enjoyable.  The waves were too rough for swimming, but solace could be easily found in reading, walking, or doing nothing at all.  I went for a walk on the surf, enjoying the brisk weather when wingnutism appeared...

(More below the fold.)

HERE?!  I was supposed to be having a nice break and they dare to attempt to violate my peace?!  Yes, I had to face teabaggery...from the sky.

Do you know those prop planes that pull along banners to advertise to the happy vacationers?  Well, usually they advertise something innocuous like local restaurants or certain products or try to raise awareness for something.  I was walking along when a plane-with-banner flew by.  The red letters on white background of the banner caught my eye and I was dumbfounded to see it read: "OBAMACARE = NO CARE STOP THE MADNESS NOW CALL CONGRESS".  I immediately became stirred up and grumbling about how the wingnut's libel is becoming so accepted amongst the "screaming minority."

Luckily, I soon relaxed again and focused back on being here at the beach.  Still, I feel irked that our airplane advertisers are such a-holes.  But maybe the fact that the opposition is so boisterous is a sign that they are afraid.  They are the minority and they know it.

I can now relate to this guy:

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
