    The guy in the photo at the tea baggers love fest looks like he’s doing the Sieg Heil!

    We hear from sources in Wilson their “Now or Never” (we like just NEVER), rally, which (despite their bogus claims of inclusiveness, was by all accounts 99 and 44/100% ivory snow), was not very well attended and had the vibe of a clandestine KKK Rally or a flea market. All held on the library grounds. Ironic, as the tea baggers’ plan would be to eliminate these bastions of “Socialism” aka public libraries. Why not? Can you imagine what books would be allowed if they had power? None.

    In contrast, the Democratic rally was apparently uplifting, happy and well attended. Lighten-up tea baggers!

    PS: Do the people over at corporate HQ at BB&T know their parking lots were being used for a Tea Party rally? Well they should know. It’s against their rules.

      The guy in the pic with his hand raised is none other than Ashley Woodard, running against Rep. Butterfield, for Congress-1st Dist., North Carolina. Interesting, isn’t it. They say a picture is worth more than a thousand words. With that in mind, I thought it was better just to post the pics without commentary and let people decide for themselves.

  2. Good pictures. I covered Congressman GK Butterfield’s rally. Awesome. I am Curmilus Dancy II @ http://www.thepoliticalagitator.com .
