The Campaign Spot

Discussing the Looming Giant Papier Mach

I took some time out today to chat with Glenn Reynolds at Pajamas Media TV about the tea parties, along with Columbus, Ohio, Tea Party organizer Justin Higgins. (“If this is an AstroTurf effort, I really could use my check soon.”)

I’m a Tea Party fan, but I noted the difficulties of organizing a protest of people who hate paying higher taxes on the day federal taxes are due. Right there, the Tea Parties conceded the turnout of the procrastinating crowd. Beyond that, it’s a little incongruous to try to gather large crowds of working people on a workday.
