Teabagger's Go Comic!

All right we've made it into Marvel Comics!

"A "tea bag" reference in a recent Captain America comic book that has angered the Tea Party movement will be removed by Marvel Comics in future editions.

In issue No. 602 of Captain America, "Two Americas, Part One," the title hero and The Falcon, a black superhero from New York City, stumble upon a protest rally in Boise, Idaho. They see scores of protesters carrying signs that say "Stop the Socialists!" and "Tea Bag The Libs Before They Tea Bag YOU!"

Captain America says the protest appears to be an "anti-tax thing," and The Falcon jokes that he likely would not be welcomed into the crowd of "angry white folks."

The article implies that Tea Party folks are "upset" about it, but only quotes Michael Johns, a board member of the Nationwide Tea Party Coalition, calling it juvenile.

Me....they hate us, they really hate us! We must be doing something right.
