As for what I saw, it was more or less the same. People were pissed about spending. And it was funny after reading the article it didn't seem to me like that many people were chanting for Palin. I mean there was a majority doing it, but it wasn't by much.
There were still your typical birther and racist idiots, although there weren't nearly as many as I remember seeing at the few I went to in SC. But I imagine it was because there were a lot more people here in Boston than in the SC ones so it wasn't as obvious. There seemed to be a good number of people upset over the fact Senator Brown didn't show up because a lot of people wanted to hear him speak. I would say out of the 100 or so people I talked to 60 or 70 were there to listen to him. I think that goes to show still how well liked he is here in Boston and that at least this Tea Party was more moderate than those I had been to in the past.
Also, while there was a lot of people there, the numbers were probably not as big as some are going to say they were. There were a good number of college students from different school newspapers to report on the event. There were also a lot of kids there to see if Palin showed up to be Palin again. Also there were a lot there just to see what it was about or why there were a large gathering of people in the Commons. I will say to many college students, including myself, we see these Tea Parties as now an arm of Fox News and Beck and Palin and it is a major turn off to us.
