What a field day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly saying, "hooray for our side"

A Day at the Races

Fox News is in full on froth mode. Cavuto said "people are descending on Washington like locusts." I can't agree more. I'm sure he didn't mean it that way, though. Or somehow in his mind it was a Good Thing(tm). Of course, Cavuto isn't the brightest crayon in the box anyway. He's just a good spinner and can follow directions and talking points. It's so bad the typists for the crawlers are missing spaces. I'm sure they'll be to all caps by tomorrow.

And yes, there's a guy with a "Tyranny Response Team" t-shirt and the prerequisite "Obama is going to eat our babies" and "Liberals Suck", and "SOCIALISM" kinds of signs. You know, you want to be against "government out of control spending" and "not like the direction the government is going", I can respect that. And frankly, welcome to the cause 9 years late. But that's really not what the movement is about. I know some of you are. I know the idiots don't speak for you all, but their the ones speaking the loudest for you. Maybe you should actually take control of your movement before the radicals drive you over the cliff. And maybe you might want to rethink the star power of Michele Bachmann. Seriously, last night on the floor of congress she said that "the government took over the car industry effectively." I think she meant to put "effectively" after the "government", but then, she also doesn't listen to what she is saying. Why should you?

At the beginning of this, last summer, a friend that was in the movement sent me a message with several links to speakers talking, basically, revolution. That is your movement. Angry people. No compromise. Our way or death. Well, you might be surprised to know some of us have already made those decisions, only it was seven years ago. However, to us, the Constitution lives, and many of us swore to uphold, defend, and protect her. Also, it's not the first time I've heard both that language or vitriol. I used to make a study of them.
