Teabaggers' Popularity Plummets

The far rightwing fringe of the Regressive party -- the ones with teabags stapled to their hats -- are now more disliked by most Americans than some of the much maligned groups like Atheists and Muslims, according to a new poll from the NY Times.

The Teabaggers, who have taken control of the republican party and forced Orange John Boner to take the US to the brink of bankruptcy during the weeks of debt ceiling wrangling, now have an approval rating of only 20% and their disapproval rating, which was only 18% one year ago, has skyrocketed to 40%.

In addition, when asked, "Who do you think is mostly to blame for the current federal budget deficit?" those polled responded

Bush 44%
Obama 15%
Congress 15%
Someone else 10%.

Seems like they got that right, too.
