And so it begins: the Right to take a swig of Protest Culture.

Contemplate the quote below before you snicker.

“How come,” I asked Andy, “whenever someone upsets the Left, you see immediate marches and parades and rallies with signs already printed and rhyming slogans already composed, whereas whenever someone upsets the Right, you see two members of the Young Americans for Freedom waving a six-inch American Flag?”
“We have jobs.” said Andy.

-P. J. O’Rourke

Which tells you two things:

  1. It’s in the Left’s best interests to keep the unemployment rate down… oops.
  2. Don’t let the time that elapses between the emergency session to pass a bill and the leisurely signing of it four days later include a national holiday. People get those off.

Via Little Miss Atilla – sorry, no CPAC again for me this year – we’re told that there are actually going to be protests against this monstrosity of a Democratic debt bill tomorrow in both Denver and Seattle. Check out Michelle Malkin and Redistributing Knowledge for further details. Will it be large? Don’t know. Will it be mocked? Almost certainly, as only people who know that you have to squash populist resentment quick before it breeds can do it. Will it be worth it? Yes. Will you be there, or do something of your own down the line?

Well… that’s up to you, isn’t it?
