Tea Parties: The Morning After

Went late to the Tea Party at our local Post Office. First Tea Party I've been to. Can't compare attendance or tone to any previous events. Still ruminating on my impressions this morning. Not completely sure what to make of it.

There was about 100 people there. The Gadsen flag and homemade pro-freedom/anti-tax signs were the overwhelming choice of demonstrators. Well behaved, salt of the earth type folks. Drivers going by were all loud in supporting the demonstration.

There were a few anti- Obama posters and at least one birther poster. They were visible enough to make it seem as much of an anti-Obama rally as an anti-big government rally.

Sign of the day (seen online somewhere)
