Beware of falling conservatives.

BOSTON, MA - Hundreds of Americans who feel they are being railroaded by the Obama administration have probably still not snapped back into reality, even after a cold dip in Boston Harbor today, said officials.

Research indicates corporate special interests over-stoked the engines of the Tea Party Express over the last few weeks; the "loco" motive had been gaining momentum for some time as it traveled America carrying its cargo of misconceptions, half-truths, and outright lies.

At such a frenetic pace, said experts, one might very well have expected the conservative train of thought to derail unless traveling in an uncompromised straight line, which is exactly what happened.

"I heard a crowd of people coming around the corner," said one woman who witnessed the event. "I thought they were Indians from the way they were whooping and hollering, but they turned out to be dressed up like Nazi sympathizers instead, I guess. A lot of them were displaying swastikas and pictures of Hitler or something - it was kind of hard to tell because they were moving so fast! They seemed pretty worked up about something."

She said when the group rounded the corner, they just kept right on going, tumbling by the dozen into the icy waters of Boston Harbor like so many lemmings.

Shouts of "Damn You Obama!" could be heard as the Tea Party Express' misinformed maladroits tumbled into waters once devastated by Michael Dukakis, according to conservative sources.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
