Madison Tea Party: Palin Introduced by Breitbart Screaming ‘Go To Hell!’
“Go to hell!”Here’s an update on the pitiful attendance at today’s Teabagfest in Madison, Wisconsin, featuring Andrew “Go To Hell!” Breitbart and Sarah “Fight Like a Girl” Palin, who had to scream to be heard over the counterprotesters. Earlier reports of about a thousand people were slightly under the mark, but not by much; at its peak, police estimated the crowd at 6,500 (but warned that the estimate was inaccurate). Compared to the ~100,000 who attended the demonstrations against Scott Walker’s union-busting bill, this was a tiny crowd.
The tea party supporters were lined along the sidewalk in front of the podium, surrounded by small barriers, perhaps to keep the sounds of counter protesters out. Several thousand counter-protesters surrounded them, chanting “Recall Walker,” blowing whistles and horns, beating drums and sometimes booing the speakers.
Even though they used a sound system, it was hard to hear everything the speakers were saying over the counter-chants. …
Only the shrill Vicki Mckenna, talk show host WIBA, seemed to be able to cut through the chanting, when she told them: “Shut up.” The crowd didn’t listen. Andrew Breitbart was similarly annoyed and told the crowd, “you’ve been so rude, go to hell. You’re trying to divide America.”
Actually, Breitbart screamed, “Go to hell! Go to hell! Go to hell!” like a madman. This was Sarah Palin’s introduction.Youtube Video
DERPJim “Dim” Hoft, with his customary knack for ridiculously inflating Teabag crowd sizes, is claiming “between 10,000 and 15,000 patriots,” and an indeterminate number of “thugs” who heckled the Madonna of Morons: SARAH PALIN – ANDREW BREITBART Join Thousands of Patriots at Madison Tea Party (Live on UStream) …Update: Thugs Heckle Sarah Palin …Update: Sarah to Obama, “Mr. President, Game On!”
The left is out in force today in Madison, Wisconsin.
But… So are the tea partiers. Andrew Breitbart and Sarah Palin will speak to the throngs of patriots this afternoon. I just heard from a trusted source that, despite the cold weather, there are between 10,000 and 15,000 patriots in attendance.
