My latest post at David Horowitz’s NewsRealBlog looks at Media Matters’ mockery of Tea Party protests:
The grammatically challenged Boehlert finds this amusing and hopes you do, too:

The fact is, the D.C. capitol police and the National Parks Service have declined to release official counts. (Which may explain why Eric the Excitable couldn’t link to any.)
