I know, I know. You were out in force, well behaved, didn’t break anything and didn’t even bring the giant puppets or BusHitler signs. But apparently, you are doing this all wrong. The size of the protest only matters if half of you are in Medicare scooters with “Jesus is my CoPilot” stickers on the back, and the other half of you are carrying signs taking the Founding Fathers out of context. If you do that, then the media will pay attention to you like they do the tea parties.
Or it might be that the oligarchs running the media and all the newsmen making 200k+ a year are much more interested in tax cuts and “limited government” so they cover the tea parties, but couldn’t give a shit about unions or teachers. But that would be crazy talk.
