I went to the Tea Party in St. Paul yesterday. They estimated that there were about 10,000 people in attendance. Capitol police estimated that there were about 2000. The Pioneer Press said, "hundreds." I would have guessed about 6,000. Local news outlets emphasized the lower figure and went out of their way to show pictures that made the crowd look small and freaky. Here are some shots I took in Saint Paul, knowing that the MSM would do their thing as they always do.
As protests go this was more like a jazz concert than a rock concert. The atmosphere was festive and determined. No cars were burned.
It was fun.
10,000 or "hundreds," you decide.
