5. Looks as though media now want to cool off the Teabaggers..
"Supporters wore American flag T-shirts and waved anti-Obama and anti-tax signs, but they seemed more lethargicthan during past tea party rallies. The crowd swelled to about 250 at the peak of the three-hour event but dropped to just more than 100 by the time Angle spoke."

We've been hearing and reading more and more that makes it seem as though the Tea Party is "so over," or soon will be.

I guess media is siding with the Roves of the Republicon Party in the belief that no good an come from splitting their Party.

I hate that media manipulates America so easily.
