Vindication on the Tea Party Crashers!

As I predicted, the Tea Party Crashers were a failure. I would say I actually overestimated their abilities.

After several days of hype and hand-wringing about liberal plans to infiltrate Thursday’s tea party rallies, the great 2010 Tax Day Tea Party Crash did not produce much of a bang in Washington

To be sure, a handful of obvious crashers engaged in some mostly non-confrontational back-and-forth with tea party activists at a Thursday evening rally that drew thousands to Washington’s National Mall near the Washington Monument. And some less overt crashers subtly mocked activists from amidst their ranks at both the evening rally on the Mall and an earlier event at Freedom Plaza near the White House. And there could have been other infiltrators who evaded immediate detection.

Yes. Some may have been so successful that they were barely noticed. On the other hand, wasn't that the whole point?

I wish I could find the article where the embarrassed crashers ran for it as soon as they were detected. Down the memory whole I suppose ....
