Tea Party Signs From Boston

Sarah addresses the crowd of teabaggers today in Boston at the Tea Party Express Rally

Aside from those there to see Sarah and express their outrage at the government, there were others there as well and here are a few photos from those who decided to attend the rally today. 

Seems to me that many of these "teabaggers" didn't have rallies protesting government spending when G.W. Bush was president and spending untold amounts of money on wars......where were they then?

Ah, what a novel concept, .....

And of course one of my favorites

Now you'll notice with this next one that the lady (and I use the term loosely) with the yellow arrow sign felt the need to insult someone who was not being derogatory nor in the way of the rally at all.

And I love the fact that these particular "protesters" told everyone that they had cookies at their tea party.

Here is a ireport from cnn which shows both sides of the rally:

Now one of the things that struck me was when Sarah Palin made a point of mentioning (@ 2:46 in the video) that she and most who were there, like her own friends and family were "independents" and specifically mentioned her husband Todd.

Now we know, without question that Todd only recently registered as an "Independent".   From 1985 to 2002 Todd was a registered AIP (Alaskan Independence Party) member who changed his voting status when Sarah started to run for office.  We also know that she wanted to lie to people about this fact during the Presidential election in 2008.    This is not the first time she has lied or twisted the facts nor will it be the last time as we know it is a common occurrence with her.

We'll delve into that another time.

Something Fun & Something Serious

First up we have Bill Maher on Hardball with Chris Matthews talking about Sarah Palin:

And next up we have Keith Olberman talking about the Tea Party and how it is being used by GOP operatives along with Fox News Commentators in order to make money and to use smear tactics to slam the current administration.

Here is the link to the story on Politico done by Kenneth Vogel:
