We here at The Raffles have heard several stories about Tea Parties getting shut down or local dimwits trying to get them canceled; and even more about the supposed counter-protests, dirty-trick petitions from ACORN and other groups, and of course the H-P looking to report all the badness. So far, I can only dig up a few stories that seem to have any actual factual content.
Rutland, Vermont is supposedly cancelled.
Burleson, TX tried it too.
And of course, the lovely Cape Coral.
So, here is what we need from our readers:
1) If you are going to a Tea Party, in any city, please write somewhere on the Web what you saw, who you heard, and if you ran into any friction of any type.
2) Send us a link to your report. You can direct twitter us, email us, or just comment here on the blog with the link to your story.
3) PICTURES PICTURES PICTURES!
Now, folks, this isn’t shameless self promotion. I’m not going to say “No” to your input if you’re not wearing a Simon shirt. (Of course, if you are, or if you printed up one our signs, we will gladly show it off! We recognize PR value.) I don’t care if you just show up on your lunch break without a sign at all. We just want to be sure that the word gets out, that events neither get covered over blown out of proportion. We’d also like to document anything spectacularly idiotic the counter protesters try.
Here’s the best part: One lucky sender-inner will get a prize. Nope, not just a t-shirt from the Simon Jester store that anyone could order. Instead, we will pick a random participant and that person will receive a one-of-a-kind custom Simon Jester item. (It’s a surprise!)
So, break out those blackberries, digital cams, cellphones, etc. and keep us informed! See you all tomorrow.
Hey, Hey. Let’s be careful out there.
