As successful as the 9/12 Washington Tea Party was, it still left us with some questions: Who were those wonderful czars? Where did they come from? And most importantly, do they mind if we take some more pictures?
Thanks to the Green Czar (AKA Floridajayhawk on Twitter), we now know a little more about these cheerful, good-natured lovers of liberty and what they're trying to get off their chests. He was nice enough to answer a few questions via e-mail:
Greetings, Green Czar! So, who are you fine folks?
How did you come up with the idea?
Well, the founder of South Florida Tea Party came up with Boob Czar. I came up with Transparency Czar. (I cannot remember who came up with Dancing with the Czars... it might have been me, and it might have been the founder, over beers at P.F. Chang's. We were going to have 20+ people dance in front of the White House in costume, but people chickened out.) Beer Czar could not make it... but next year! We might have Stimulus Czars too. Think hot twin nurses with short skirts!
We wanted to illustrate absurdity by using absurdity. Make a mockery of the czars.
Are there more "czars" besides you three?
The objective was to bring 20-30 people in costumes and take photos in front of the White House at 8 a.m. Well, only 3 of us showed up in costumes, and we stayed up till 2 a.m. drinking on Friday and did not get the photo in front of the White House! Damn!
What's southfloridateaparty.org all about? Are you planning more events?
There is a big event in South Florida on Oct 4 with Joe the Plumber, Lloyd Marcus, and maybe the Boob Czar.
A lot of people are looking at the Boob Czar and asking: Are they real? Her principles, that is.
She is all about freedom. She works in the import/export trade business (smart girl). Southern belle.
Do you guys plan to sell Boob Czar t-shirts? How about bikinis?
T-shirts? Maybe. Will update you.
Thanks for all the positive feedback, input, and interest. I put about 30 names for potential czars on Twitter about 2-3 weeks ago. Watch southfloridateaparty.org for more events. You never know... if Tea Parties want Boob Czar to make appearances, we might arrange that!
I will tell you we had more women who just loved Boob Czar. You cannot believe it. The older the women, the more they went crazy for her. It was too cool. Hanging out with those two, it was like being with Britney Spears and Paris Hilton for a day. We had hundreds of cameras all over us anytime we walked anywhere. It was fun.
Sounds like we'll be seeing more pics! Which is of course, y'know, good for morale. And countering the media narrative of "They're all angry nutjobs." (Also: B-b-buh-buh-boobs.)
Well, thanks to the Green Czar, AKA Floridajayhawk, for the info. Let's hope we see some more of these czars and fewer of those crappy ones Obama keeps forcing on us!
P.S. I just came up with a little poem:
P.P.S. "Inchestigative journalism"? Guilty as charged!
