Sophisticated liberal thought

Democrats have been struggling to find a way to respond to the Tea Party. Since previous ideas, like the coffee party, didn't work out, so they've created a new variant called "f*uck tea" which comes complete with t-shirts, a video, and song:

Consider the song lyrics (c1:42):
F*ck you, f*ck you very very much
Because we hate what you do and we hate your whole crew
So please don stay in touch
F*ck you, f*ck you very very much
So, it is clear that they "hate" the tea party and "hate" the whole tea party crew. Why do they hate? That is answered by this lyric (c0:15):
Cause we are so unspired, so sick and tired of the hatred you harbor
and also (c1:27):
Do you really enjoy living a life that is so hateful?
Cause there's a hole where you soul should be
Your are losing control of it and it's really distasteful
F*ck you, f*ck you very very much
They "hate" the tea party because the Tea Party is "hateful"? Have they looked in the mirror, recently? Add this as another case study of psychological projection.

Consider one more curious lyric, this one sung over a picture of Rush Limbaugh (c1:17):
You want to be like your father whose approval you're after
Well, that's not how you find it
If you picked one prominent American politician with the biggest father-approval-complex, who would it be? Barack Obama comes to my mind.

Lastly, consider this lyric (c0:26):
So you say it's not OK to be gay
Well, I think you are just evil
They have clearly missed a key point: the Tea Party is an economic/libertarian movement, not a social/religious movement. I suppose that once they decided to hate the Tea Party, they didn't consider the reasons why to be important.
