Observations on Tea-Party Tax Protests of Sept. 12

Somewhere there are aerial photographs of the crowds on Saturday. They will surface. Of course, normal people assumed that there would be news coverage and will not make the same mistake again.
Meanwhile, rest assured that, just as the most sensitive nerve in the human body is the pocketbook nerve >link<, the only other sentient part of a politician's body is the re-election sensor. These often-vile persons may say nothing but they know how many people were there and they were impressed.

The damage done by denial of the dimensions of the demonstration devolve upon the demos - the rest of the voting public who may well devalue the protest because they are denied information about the size of the discontent.

But it was impressive and it made an impression, be assured.
