Tea Party in Freehold

Yesterday I attended one of the hundreds of tea parties all over America. I went to the one in Freehold, NJ, hosted at the Moore's Tavern by the 12th District legislators (Jen Beck, Caroline Casagrande, Declan O'Scanlon).

It was a fun event, like the tea parties were supposed to be everywhere. Although they got ignored by the mainstream media, a million people showed up across America. Oh, and when the media mentioned them, they claimed it's an extremist thing organized by Fox News. Hahaha. Yeah, maybe Sean Hannity was active in organizing the Atlanta Tea Party, but everywhere else it was spontaneous. And if we need to credit someone with the idea of Tea Parties, that is Rick Santelli of CNBC, a subsidiary of GE.

But there was very limited media presence. Remember when 10 wackos were demonstrating against Bush, and you had 50 reporters surrounding them? This time the "reporters" were gone!

Anyway, here are a few pics from the Freehold Tea Party:
