That's what I'm reporting: this vet/Palin/Cruz memorial protest story is going viral quickly on right, will shape House GOP scene on M & T
So despite the collapse
of the GOP's polling numbers and outright civil war, congressional Republicans decided that their "million vets march" is a "game changer" that gives them "momentum" headed into this week. Wow.
Set aside the fact that the several hundred confederate flag waving and impeachment-sign carrying nuts didn't rate in traditional media newscasts because, really, who gives a shit about a bunch of Tea Party cranks? The Tea Party's approval ratings are in the toilet. No one outside the fringe likes them anymore.
Instead, let's take a look at some photos of these million vets that changed the game (it's a game now!) from Michelle Malkin's website, with 14 references to "million vets march" on the page just to drive home the point that, you know, it was A MILLION:
There are more Republicans in Congress than attended this protest. If they had attended this protest, their numbers would've swelled to 433 which, while not quite a million, would at least have gotten them a little bit closer.
