tea party report Lansing Michigan part 2
A very nice lady sold me a souvenier which was kind of clever - a box of tea party tea. She was doing a brisk business and had sold all but her final box and told me I could have it at half price so I jumped at since I collect political stuff.
One fellow gave me a clever thing - it was a parody on the old Norman Rockwell 'triple self portrait' painting. This one has Obama as Rockwell looking into the same Rockwell mirror and painting a picture of Jesus on canvas. Got to admit that the tea party is upping its game and this was much much cleverer than the Curios George with Obama stickers that some used back in the McCain/Palin campaign.
This was a very short rally - from start to finish only 90 minutes. The union one yesterday with lots more participation lasted seven hours. Most of them at least three or four hours.
When the crowd broke up, almost everyone used the various sidewalks and would not walk on the grass. I do not know what that says about them - if anything - but thats rare here as the lawn takes a terrific beating on these events.
Lets hope those pics come out. Lots of what I feel will be good ones.
