Tea Party, So Cal style
That would be some 8,000, to be vaguely precise.
I'm so happy I could cry.
Apparently this thing was organized by John and Ken from KFI radio in L.A. I used to love these guys when I lived down there. But the remarkable thing about this is that they aren't "Rush Limbaugh conservatives." They're centrists. Right of center to be sure, but hardly right wing fanatics, particularly Ken.
Also remarkable is the fact that these people were old and young, black, white, Latino and every over color of the rainbow. I think my favorite photo from the Orange County Register is a tattooed, brown arm with a Terminator action figure impaled in effigy -- though there was gorier imagery that also brought a tear to my eye.
Sure it was the O.C., but these folks came from all over Southern California.
YouTube footage below of the Fullerton event. (Because CNN sure isn't going to show you what's been going on all over the country since Rick Santelli fired the soundbite heard 'round the world.)
Keep slugging, America... We'll bring these pretenders down yet.
