I got a bunch of pictures to show you guys. I didn't take them, a fellow blogger directed me to the Flicker site where these photos were posted by "Fibonacci Blue." (A link to the original site appears at the end of this post--it's really worth looking at because there's video there, too.)
This was a "tea party" event in St. Paul, Minnesota last Saturday (March 13, 2010) featuring crowd favorite Michele Bachmann as a highlight. (She also rounded up folks to attend via email invites.) Eric Kleefeld of Talking Points Memo wrote a spectacular analysis of Bachmann's speech--pointing out that she was telling the crowd that the health care reforms would not be law even if they were passed.

"But mark my words, the American people aren't gonna take this lying down," Bachmann later said. "We aren't gonna play their game, we're not gonna pay their taxes. They want us to pay for this? Because we don't have to. We don't have to. We don't have to follow a bill that isn't law. That's not the American way, and that's not what we're going to do."
