"If This Is Organized, We Suck," She said

The conservative grassroots (sic) drama machine implored the tea party crowd to jam the Capitol to protest the oppression of a California grandmother.
If You Are in Driving Distance of DC Tomorrow
Dear Fellow Tea Party Patriot,
According to Politico, tomorrow, Thursday, October 29 at 10:00 am, the
Democrats in the House plan to unveil the House Health Care Legislation. If you
are within driving distance of DC and are able to attend with signs in
opposition to government takeover of health care, we encourage you to do

No word if those without signs might be welcomed. First mistake.
Remember on the action list sent earlier today, tomorrow's action items are
to call your own Congressman plus the Blue Dogs in the House. Be sure to do this
so it coincides with the bill unveiling tomorrow.

"Tomorrow's Action Items?" That sort of makes grassroots unorganized political free market sound like an unholy alliance of you nagging Mom and the worst punch-list review ever.
Please forgive the extra email in your inboxes today. Since we are doing all
we can to leave no stone unturned, we felt it was necessary to send an extra
email today so those who can protest tomorrow are able to do so.

Only by bulk mailing email boxes was Thomas Jefferson able to yada yada...
You are the heart and soul of the Tea Party Movement. Thank you for
promoting the causes of fiscal responsibility, constitutionally limited
government, and free markets with us!

If you don't dress like Mel Gibson in that one movie and carry a Gadsden Flag, who will?
Your Tea Party Patriots National Coordinator Team,Debbie Dooley, Mike Gaske,
Kellen Giuda, Ryan Hecker, Jenny Beth Martin, Mark Meckler, Sally Oljar, Diana
Reimer, Billie Tucker, and Dawn Wildman

All actual grassrootsy people. No. Really.

So how many patriots answered the clarion call? 10,000? 60,000? 2.5 Million? About ten?
Joann Abbott, a grandmother from Northern Virginia, made the drive to
the protest this morning after seeing the email sent by Tea Party leaders last
night. When asked if she was part of the "flash mob," she laughed. "I'm here on
my own," she said, looking around at the scattered protesters around her. "If
this is organized, we suck."
