We Had a Tea Party Today
No, there were no pretty teapots. Just lots of signs.
And pictures of famous conservatives.
(not shown: three life size card board cut outs of Sarah Palin)
Were there crazies? Whackos? Nut-cases? Well, depends on what you mean. If dying your hair bright red just for the day is "crazy"....then yes. If donning lots of flags...in your hat, on your shirt, huge flag poles in your hand...is "whacko", well then, yes. If carrying signs that say things like "Throw the Bums Out" or anything pictured below:
warrants the title "nut-case"....then, yes.
But, you never met a nicer bunch of folks to have an impromptu picnic with. We were early birds, arriving about noon and leaving by 1:30. People were still arriving and festivities were scheduled to go on till 6pm. For us it was a nice introduction to this historical grass roots movement.
