Following on my previous post, I’ve realized for some time that the Coffee Party wasn’t going be the kind of sensible Third Way alternative, a la the UnParty, that I’ve been looking for all these years.
I was momentarily beguiled by the word “coffee,” but I eventually woke up and smelled it.
Basically, for some time, it has seemed to be more of a leftie alternative to the Tea sorts.
And now, like Phil Noble’s SC New Democrats, the Coffee Party is totally in the bag for Occupy Wall Street. They seem starstruck or something, like this is what they’ve been waiting for all their lives. You can see this, over and over, in recent Tweets, such as this one:
Talk about your fanboy sensibilities.
This prompted me to reply, I’m disappointed that the Coffee Party seems so entranced by Occupy Wall Street…
To which I received this answer:@coffeepartyusaCoffee Party
No, I’m not. I won’t be in town. But thanks. I mean, I believe y’all are sincere in your effort to include me.
If only y’all would snap out of it, and become a real alternative for those of us who are sick of people marching and countermarching in the streets, and hollering pointlessly at each other in the halls of Congress. Those of us longing for some common, grown-up sense.
My prescription: Listen to the song below. (The Coffee Party fooled me once. I won’t get fooled again.) And have yourself a nice cup of coffee while you listen. Preferably some of that wonderful, corporate Starbucks coffee. See how good it is…
And then vote UnParty.
