I'm surprised they sent anyone.
Tea Party members organized a "Bonfire Tea Party." Party members said thousands of people attended the event.
I suppose there were 2000-3000, but it was difficult to tell. I can tell you for certain there were hundreds of vehicles carrying people to the rally.
Here is the faint praise part:
Rallies like this have been held across the country in the past year or so.
I think it is safe to argue that these rallies are the most important grassroots movement of my lifetime. They are about to radically alter the political landscape - possibly for a very long time. Largely because of this movement, the Bluest of Blue States may very well elect a Republican to a seat held by one Democrat since 1962.
The Obamastream media thinks if they ignore us, we will go away. I got a few thousand really cold folks in Racine who would differ.
