Politics: A bunch of tea-baggers in D.C., brought together by astroturfing

  • I can’t figure out to save me what [Mr. Obama and the Democrats] are trying to accomplish, unless they want socialism.
  • Retired paper-mill worker Joseph Wright • One of the thousands of tea-partiers protesting Obama’s health-care plan (and just about everything else he represents). Tons of old white people people just like Wright descended upon Washington today to make themselves loudly heard. Good thing we’re out of town for the weekend. The event was put together by FreedomWorks, which we’re going to point out creates fake grassroots campaigns, also known as astroturfing. • source
