Tax Day tomorrow!

You’ve done yours, right?

…It’s been a long day, sorry. Let me put it this way: it’s amazing how much vomit a small child can hold. Or… not hold, I suppose. I’m on autopilot at this point.

Yet more videos from the DC Tax Day Tea Party.

First off, we have two of the organizers: Teri Christoph of Smart Girl Politics and Chandler Ramelli of A Not So Capitol Idea:

Probably the same place where mine is, kid.

The first photo there at Point of a Gun there says it all, really:

Although she did a better job at coloring the horse than I would have been able to manage.

Some more round-ups/local coverage here, here, here, here, here, here, here & here.

Don’t expect to see Jon Stewart to whale on Susan Roesgen again.

You probably remember Susan Roesgen from yesterday: she was the one who got so peeved when the person that she interviewed turned out to be not on-script. Voluntary propagandists often aren’t, when dealing with messy reality.

Anyway, she’ll probably be lionized by CNN for her “bravery” to standing up to people yelling back at somebody with a video crew trying to browbeat them, so watch this clip while you still can:


See also AoSHQ and The Other McCain.

…because I bet you that Jon Stewart isn’t going to think that this example of hysterical “reporting” is going to be nearly as funny as her reporting of the Fargo flood was. Or overwrought. Or even as silly journalism, although that depends largely on whether he forgot to take the clown nose off. After all, floods are one thing, but at the end of the day voluntary propagandists have only got each other to cling to.

Possibly even ‘bitterly.’

So, how did the Left’s New Way Forward protests go?

Let me put it this way: you might as well read Instapundit, because he’s doing a better job covering this than the New Way Forward people are.  At least he has pictures – although that’s not really great news for the NWF, given the way that Glenn is cheerfully contrasting them with the various pre-Tax Day Tea Parties also scheduled today (which are pretty much destroying the NWF protests in terms of attendence).  When one group is getting more people in Lincoln, Nebraska than the other is getting in Chicago, Illinois, there’s a problem.  For the latter, at least.

That being said, this report of the Washington DC NWF is worth special consideration (and not to mention, mockery):

I’d promise to personally check every person in the crowd on Wednesday’s DC Tax Day Tea Party to find out if they work for Fox News, except that there’s no way that I’d get to even a tenth of the attendees by the time that the Tea Party was over.

One week until the April 15th Tax Day Tea Parties.

Welcome to activism.  Yes, we know, it is probably your first time.

If you haven’t picked one yet, pick one. I’ll be at the DC affair. Erick and Jeff E of RedState are helping set up Macon’s.  Take a couple of hours off, find a gathering that’s close, and go. If you never go to these things – but you’re also kind of mad at the way the government is throwing away your money – well, that’s sort of the point of you going.

And remember:

First they ignore you
then they ridicule you
then they fight you
then you win.”
