1. Will these deplorable tea parties become a periodic blight on the ideological landscape or
2. Will the whining sore losers be satisfied with this one intemperate and misinformed outburst?

No real surprises there, just the predictable jumble of folks with a beef about the WINNING presidential candidate and a host of sore-loser grievances without any alternatives suggested for getting us out of the big nasty financial mess left behind by the Bushian incompetents. The minions of big business and the upper income set enjoyed some success in coaxing out the "folks" to carry their water for them.

Oh, yes, there was a fellow there with a novel t-shirt that informed us that officers" were responsible for 9-11 and for the murders of JFK and Martin Luther King.

And two of the speakers, including one university professor who REALLY should have known better, brought up that old, stale, phony stuff about how the gummint intended to tax gaseous emissions from cattle. Even conservative Congressman Aderholt dispelled that over a year ago. Link

"U.S. Rep. Robert Aderholt, a Republican from Haleyville in northwest Alabama, said he has spoken with EPA officials and doesn't believe the cow tax is a serious proposal that will ever be adopted by the agency."

Just another old dead viral internet myth that right wingers fell in love with and can not stand to part from. A case of ideological necrophilia!

A lot of the rest of the speecifying had to do with how we need to get the nation back to the point where it would function something very much like a theocracy. This included a seemingly interminable closing prayer by a young man who seemed committed to including every single old saw about the Christian roots of the nation and every conceivable lament about how we have supposedly forsaken such roots. None of these folks have been paying the least bit of attention to Cal Thomas since he told the religious right to get off the political kick.
