Tea Party Protesters Protest D.C. Metro Service

Protesters who attended Saturdays Tea Party rally in Washington found a new reason to be upset: Apparently they are unhappy with the level of service provided by the subway system.

Rep. Kevin Brady asked for an explanation of why the government-run subway system didnt, in his view, adequately prepare for this past weekends rally to protest government spending and government services.

Seriously.

The Texas Republican on Wednesday released a letter he sent to Washingtons Metro system complaining that the taxpayer-funded subway system was unable to properly transport protesters to the rally to protest government spending and expansion.
