Just when you think the Republicans and the Tea Party could not be more of a joke, someone finally points out all of their inanity in a comic book by creating a five man Republican superhero team, and they're called the W.A.S.P. Squad.  The person who wrote this really zings the Republicans.  I love good political satire, and this is it.  They're lead by "The Man" whose super power is "illegal vision," which detects illegal immigrants at middle management and above.  He lives in a mansion with his wife, the Mrs. in red state Idaho.  I sprang for the comic book (I love comic books) and I haven't stopped laughing since.  I won't include any pictures, copyright infringement and all, but the Republican team is made up of:

The Man - The Leader
The Mrs. - His super powerful wife
The Monocle - His power is the free market and making people "productive"
Pierre - Cheese eating surrender monkey
The Reverend - Worships Ronald Reagan and is a priest of Rand
Bubba - Git 'er done!

Wow I can't breathe.  This is the Republican Party of today in all of its ridiculous glory and someone had the guts to call them out on it.  There's a Democratic super hero team, and they're called the Funkforce, hence the name of the website I guess.  I'll read that next.

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.
