OTV: Tea Partiers Had Worst Entry

OrangeTV: Just like last year, my vote for most over-the-top unbearably obnoxious parade entry goes to the Tea Party “float”. They drive the most gigantic, louder than hell, bright yellow monster rig (what IS that thing anyways?), have cloying, cornier-than-corny “patriotic” country music blaring at full volume and a half and have a handful of people shouting hollow political slogans through megaphones. It’s like a slow hurricane of white people and bitterness and it leaves children clinging to their mothers’ bosoms in fright and gives everyone else within a 3-block radius a powerful migraine and an excuse to reach for that 2nd valium pill.

Question: Which 4th of July Parade entries did you consider to be the best/worst?
