Tea Party gets crashed... and they invited the crasher

This. was. hi-larious.

If you don't like Garofalo, she doesn't show up until after the best part.

Best of the best is between 1:20 and 2:35.



I was worried for the dude's safety.

Happy Friday, All!

Post Script: The online hype claimed that over 2,000 Tea Party protests were being held (723,000 google hits for that number). In reality, something closer to 600 occurred. Hmmm... perhaps all that tea got them to exaggeratin'. To get statistical data click here. Estimates used were provided by local newspapers in the places where the parties were held.

Tax protests on April 15 are normal. As are public gatherings to celebrate the Fourth of July... the next date slated for Teabagger's gatherings. Those people at Taste of Chicago July Fourth weekend might have to wade through pockets of people with anti-abortion signs, anti-Obama signs, and signs showing Obama caricatured as any dictator in history.

The Boston Tea party wasn't about taxes levied against the colonies; it was about the tea tariff monies going back to England and *not* staying in the colonies. History lesson anyone?

A great place to start is the December 16, 1873 meeting of the Massachusetts Historical Society--commemorating the 100th anniversary of the party. You may find it on the Library of Congress' website.

God you have a great sense of humor!

I love Nate Silver. The links on his blog are cool because you can click on any of the numbers and read local coverage of any of the protests.

Thanks for this.

Yes, taxation without representation as opposed to what we have now, taxation with representation.

I love the brave Florida sou. Pennsacola is beaming, bright red so he had some cajones!!

I did like it when they were kind, sort for him and then he used the word Republican and then the pitchforks came out! LOL!

Garofalo was hysterical as always. The limbic pressing on the frontal lobe so that the synapses don't fire!! That's very funny stuff!

Thank you.

You know how the Republicons have been going on about the lack of Press coverage for their 500 Man march? It just cracks me up, because isn't that what happened to Thousands of Protestors periodically during the Bush Administration, when they held Peace Marches and Peace Rallies? The only place you would see coverage would be sites like the Daily KoS because no one else in the mainstream media would cover these events.

WV--Gangism
Hahahaha

That was seriously the best thing I will see today (and it's only 7:12 a.m.)!

There is a radio station that I listen to up here, for the music (I actually stopped listening for a couple of months prior to the election because they should concentrate on playing music and not sharing their political ideology...these people are DJs not journalists if you know what I mean...) anyway, they were discussing the BIG Tea Party to be held in Traverse City. So I was quite surprised on the 15th when I saw the huge map of all the planned tea parties on the news and NW MI was represented by NO red dots...yup, it was a BIG Tea Party! They must have forgotten to tell the news.
