Baton Rouge Tea Party.

People. We has 'em.

On the steps of the State Capitol. The unofficial tally was about 3,000, though I'd say 4,000 - 5,000. Interesting to note that former governor Buddy Romer was there. But Bobby Jindal was nowhere to be seen, (nor was anyone from his administration. I mean, all they had to do was take the elevator down four floors...) UPDATE: I'm told that Alan Levine, DHH Secretary, and several other cabinet members did show up. Good for them.

UPDATE: They say success has a thousand authors. By that measure The Tea Parties must be a success - even Ron Paul (L - His Own Private Idaho), the man who dominated almost 0.000036% of the vote in 2008, is now claiming credit for them. I'd call it pathetic if it weren't so funny.
