Well, our local talk radio Republicans had a little protest downtown yesterday. I expect they picked one of our smallest parks so that the protest would look bigger, but what do I know?

I'm not sure what, exactly, these Republican teabaggers are hoping to accomplish, apart from being a pain in the ass for Capitol security, but they do seem to be enjoying themselves, and if it keeps them off the streets, who am I to complain? I guess everybody needs a hobby. They haven't been all that specific about what they're upset about, either. The stimulus is on their list, as is the budget. The word socialism shows up a lot, but they don't seem to actually know what it means, other than that it's bad.

They remind me quite a bit of the folks who were out protesting our invasion of Afghanistan right after 9/11. They make about as much sense, and I expect they'll have more or less the same effect. I will give them credit, though, insofar as they do have better hygiene and drive nicer cars.
