Reeko put this video together of his favorite signs from the Dallas tea party. He’s right, these are great:

Video: Rep. Thaddeus McCotter speaking @ Plymouth, Michigan tea Party

Rising GOP star, U.S.Representative Thaddeus McCotter, MI (of Red Eye fame) appeared at the tea party in Plymouth, MI, yesterday, and spoke:

Standing firm for taxpayer rights.

The Overland Park Tax Day Tea Party @JCCC

Just wow.

Some words that come to mind….massive…spirited….surreal…noisy! The cars passing by the busy intersection wouldn’t stop honking. And there was a radio show in progress, (Darla Jay’s) in one area of the grounds, and more announcements and speakers in another area. Also…I spied my first agent provocateurs of the day…perhaps you’ll spot them in the pictures.

The protest was several thousand strong, but I’m still looking for an official estimate of crowd size. Unfortunately, the KMBZ radio station website hasn’t  posted anything that is terribly helpful. I’ll check again in the morning.

UPDATE: KMBC estimates the crowd at 10,000! Scroll down for video.

UPDATE II: The Overland Park protest tied for fourth place in attendance nationwide! See Kansas City Tea Party for more.

Kudos to the Kansas city tea Party for putting on a wildly successful tea party.
