Here is a map of all the Tea Parties going on today. As of 6:53 AM, there is not one mention of it on the MSNBC portal.

Now there is mention, if only brief. And the two paragraphs are about the partisans who hijacked the protest movement (which I’m not happy about BTW). I have no problem with the media pointing this out, but gee, wouldn’t it have been nice if they would have been so skeptical about the amnesty, or million man, or anti war protests from a few years back? It would also be nice if they would, you know, do some basic research that might show that many of the organizers on the local level are still taking great pains to keep these things as non partisan as possible. I mean, come on, how can they possibly stop FOX news from deciding to promote this?
Anyway, the Sonic-Mate, his mom, and I are going to the Fresno TP sometime today. Maybe I’ll live blog.
