Classy

TalkingPointsMemo documented the crazy at the tea baggers convention in DC this weekend. Seems like a moderate, sensible group with pictures of President Obama painted like the Joker that say “Stop him before it’s too late. It’s not about Obamacare it’s about power! When we smell the burning flesh from the ovens it will be too late for us all.” Another pleasant sign featured a picture of Martin Luther King Jr. that says “He had a dream.” Under that is a picture of Obama that says “We got a nightmare.”

The winner for most compassionate sign, however, goes to “Bury Obamacare with Kennedy.” I don’t see any reason why Obama couldn’t work out a compromise with these folks.

    Number of people arrested at 2005 DC Anti-Bush rally with between 100,000 and 200,000 participants – 370

    Number of people arrested this past weekend with 1.8 million participants – 0

    And you people seriously want to lecture others about civility?

    1.8 million — the FreedomWorks president regrets saying the crowd was 1.5 million and you’re even upping him.
