A Tall Regular, Please

People who don't drink coffee give you the jitters. When you shuffle to the market early for the Sunday paper and a cup of joe and see your new co-worker suck down a large diet soda, it is a peek through the window of her soul. You might get along, but definitely are not mates. When you meet that new friend at Star Bucks and he orders a Red Bull, you can hear the air go out of the conversation bubble.

Tea Partiers make you a little nervous too. These young people carrying signs (and guns) remind you of a Buffalo Springfield song because what they stand for aint exactly clear. Tea Party paranoia strikes deep, and into the GOP it creeps. When Scott Brown won the senate race in Massachusetts they said "hooray for our side" until he stepped out of line and voted for the jobs bill. Too much aspartame in their brew might be making these Partiers nutty.

It could be time to stop, children, and join the Coffee Party Movement. "Government is not the enemy of the people, but the expression of our collective will, and we must participate in the democratic process in order to address the challenges that we face as Americans," say the Coffee Partiers as they twitch and shake.

Sure sounds stimulating. Coffee Party USA has a Facebook page with 94,516 Fans and planning National Coffee Party Day on March 13th.

Maybe you will just throw some fish on the grill, turn up the music, and wait for the Wine Party.
