Tea Party Innumeracy

Tea Partier ignorance and intellectual dishonesty is sometimes something to behold. Check out the zinger on comment 97:

A Tea-partier claimed their ranks were made up of mostly Democrats and independents. When challenged on his claim, he produced these figures:

4% Democrat
+ 52% independent
= 56%, thereby a majority, via a CNN poll.

So, a poll which shows 96% of Teapartiers to be either Republicans or Independents gets presented as "a majority Democrats and independents" by the pushers of family values. Funny, the family values I was raised with didn't include gross innumeracy and/or intellectual dishonesty. By their logic, one could claim the majority of Teapartiers are child molesters...or morons.
