This is a stale story, but one I want to share given the recent electoral shellacing.
The 2010 Springfield July 4th Parade (complete with GOP Sponsored elephant, but not someone to scoop up the poop, obviously) also had a marching contingent of Teabaggers, proudly sporting their ‘Don’t Tread on Me’ tshirts.
At the end of the parade, there is a gathering in a playground, with ice cream, balloons, and kids’ activities. NONE of the Teabaggers were in attendance. It appears that the limit of their civic participation and community involvement is rhetorical bomb throwing.
