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.
