(Newser) – Progressives are taking off the kid gloves. They've tried dismissing the validity of the tea party movement but now have a new approach: f*ck them. The Agenda Project has launched a "F*ck Tea" project, complete with T-shirts, coffee mugs, and more merchandise to come. The point is simply to "dismiss the tea party and promote the progressive cause," the group's founder tells Ben Smith of Politico.

To that end, the F*ck Tea website features polling statistics meant to ridicule tea partiers:

  • 59% like Glenn Beck.
  • 66% think global warming does not exist or will not have a serious impact.
  • 40% think Sarah Palin would be a good president.
...and so on. Click here to read about the Tea Party's fundraising troubles.
