Michigan Tea Bag Party Planned for Tonight!

There’s a tea bag party in Michigan scheduled for tonight!  Joe the (fake) Plumber will be there!  It’ll be awesome, if by awesome I mean a complete waste of time and energy!

In his analysis of the “cram down” amendment that was killed in the Senate yesterday, Bob Cesca makes this point that applies here:

Make no mistake. This was entirely about the influence of the mortgage banking lobby. And I can't help but to think that if the tea party gang were really about The People and not just about making random loud noises, they would've stood up for working families over lobbyists and bankers who were partly responsible for this entire economic mess.

Spot on.  Unfortunately, this rally will certainly be more of the same from the right
