Dear Readers: Due to an unexpected schedule glitch, I couldn’t make it to the rally for Proposition 23 being held in front of the Fall California Republican Party Convention. The convention is being held in San Diego this weekend. Happily, fellow SLOB W.C. Varones was able to go, and prepared a great post:
Instead, the guy got into a taxi, then as it rounded the corner to pull into the hotel driveway, he focused on an anti-Whitman sign and yelled, “F— you!” at the Tea Partiers. As the taxi stopped at the curb behind another car, he flashed a middle finger at the group, then opened the rear door ajar as if to say “Okay, I’m coming to kick your ass.”
Never one to miss a good provocation, a Tea Partier shouted, “Come here!” Hesitation from the taxi. “Pussy!” the Tea Partier shouted. Surely the universal challenge of the guy’s manhood would draw him from the car.
No such luck. The taxi door closed, and the cowardly Republican slunk off into the night.
There are rumors that the Tea Party is the “junior partner of the GOP”. Clearly not. In November, the GOP will be the *itch of the Tea Party. 🙂
Then there is this more traditional media coverage, via KFMB AM760: Tea party activists rally outside Republican convention
