It was no 'White-Out' that's for sure

Behold the gathering masses on the Capitol Grounds in my home town.

More than 1,000 Tea Party supporters showed up for Thursday's tax day rally outside the Iowa Capitol to vent their frustration at the expanding power of government.

The number was fewer than organizers hoped for, but authorities described the crowd as orderly.

Well, there's a surprise, if there's one thing right-wingers can do it's orderly. Maybe they were fewer than last year because the Sky God was angry...or maybe it's even more overrated than we've been overrating it.

And no matter where they sort of assembled they are full of awesome quotes:

Johnson expressed opposition to President Obama. "It's not just because he's black"

Yeah, that's only one reason, Andrew Breitbart demands you take note!

Right on. It's also that he's just not white. And he's not Confederate enough. And he's a Kenyan. And he's a usurper. And he's Hitler and Stalin and Pol Pot and Satan all rolled into one giant anti Christ. And he's never been a duly sworn member of the brother John Birch Society. And he's gonna turn whitey into the new slaves and sell em to raise money to give directly to Osama Bin Laden. And he's taking our guns away and shipping them to Yemen.

See, plenty of other reasons to express opposition and to be angry and to want to take our country the early 18th century.....maybe 17th. You know, before things got so messed up and good God-fearing, Protestant white men could just have their way.

True it is not just because he is black. He is also a Democrat. And he is black.
