So Much for the Tea Baggers
DNC reports 300ish at "huge rally" in D.C. today. Tea party organizers claim 1000 to 3000. Apparently they can't count, among other things.

3. Counting involves Science, something with a known liberal bias

4. Tea parties are for little girls and their imaginary friends. 2700 attendees were imaginary friends.

6. "Tea Party leaders also cited the last-minute organizing ....as a reason for the smaller turnout."
I could be wrong but I think I heard about this March 16 date at least back in January. I remember at the time wondering what is special about March 16 other than that it is the day before St. Patties Day. What is "last minute" about that?

7. Been their excuse for several months
Low turn out? Blame last minute planning (even though actually planning goes back months).

10. Someone forget to call the Koch brothers?
Maybe the buses were commandeered by the passengers and went to the Bingo parlor instead after the old farts found the gambling tokens and meal coupons left onboard from the last outing? Mmmmm, buffet!

12. It's because of the demons!!!
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/03/16/texas-republic...

~snip~

Speaking shortly after he riled up a crowd at Tuesday's Tea Party protest, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Tex.) declared that "demons" - yes, demons - have invaded the capital (and likely the souls of Democrats), forcing lawmakers to mislead the public about the content of the health care bill.

"Well it would take a demon to be this dishonest about a bill," the Texas Republican told the Huffington Post. "If they would just read the bill, they would see what they are saying is dishonest."

Asked to expand a bit more on what he meant, Gohmert stepped back a bit from a literal interpretation, though still floating the possibility that Democrats were possessed. "Well, somebody is making people be dishonest and it is a play on words, too," he said.
