A group including blogger Jame Hamsher tried to have a counter culture sort of Reverse Tea Party in D.C. today, EPIC FAIL. These folks don’t seem able to grasp the simple concept that for many of us, the spending in D.C. is out of control in a mere 60 days and the people at Tea Parties are trying to Stop the Spending. We are trying to preserve what we believe is necessary for our children and for America to survive let alone prosper….these nincompoops think it’s a joke like stuffing a VW BUG…/rant off

A liberal version of the popular Tea Party movement stages an epic fail in Washington, DC, on April 11, 2009. The group’s website claimed more that 400 people would attend, but only about a dozen lonely souls showed up.
Turnout was so bad that one of the organizers tried to claim that DC rallies “always set the record for low turnout.” Guess that guy’s never heard of the March on Washington. Or the Million Man March. Or this week’s Taxpayer Tea Party on April 15.
Also of note was a claim by liberal blogger Jane Hamsher that the real Tea Parties are “financed by Fox News” and that the movement is “just a bunch of people on the conservative end who are pissed off that they’re not the ones stealing right now.” Whatever that means. Of course, when I asked her about her comments afterward, she refused to answer and walked away.
