Not Just For Liberals Anymore

Tea Party Express Illinois

So, I’m having trouble understanding this sign.

Without laying down a lot of snark, though, I’m appreciating more and more how the Tea Party is mostly an umbrella for the angry, the confused, the frustrated. (What emphasizes that even more is how this woman in red is centered between someone who apparently thinks the health care legislation might possibly be repealed and one more guy sensing revolution by putting on a powdered wig.)
