In addition to Tax Day, today is the official Fox News/Freedom Works “Tea Party” Day, when thousands, nay, millions of outraged conservatives who do not know what teabagging really means will descend on DC to protest taxes, because a Keynesian stimulus package and a ~3% increase in the marginal tax rate for the super-rich marks the end of the Republic as we know it. Updates and pics after the jump:
CP and WaPo inform us that they were originally planning to dump a million tea bags in the Potomac, but that wasn’t allowed, so they updated their plans to truck the tea bags to Lafayette Park, but their permit for that was cancelled. (Deliberate littering of a park not allowed? Unpossible!)
(Added by Tiffany Bridge) Lori Goldberg’s got a Flickr photoset too.
Update, 2:30PM – Apparently someone just threw a box of tea over the White House fence, prompting an evacuation. Secret Service escorting people off Lafayette Park now.
