You know the OFA folks, doing their Master’s bidding, were really hoping attract a huge groundswell of popular anger at the “Tea-publicans” about the government shut down.
But it just didn’t happen……at all….

After a weekend in which thousands of truckers, bikers and vets showed up in Washington DC to protest the #SpiteHouse #ShutDownTheater, you can see where the real passion lies – and it doesn’t need to be “community organized”.
NRO’s Betsy Woodruff reported:
After this man (who told reporters that his name is Brett Shelley, that his sign is a joke, and that that he’s a lead engineer with a Veterans Affairs health project) appeared, the OFA protesters left the steps and headed to the lawn.
His sign says, “Just Default! I’ve got military experience, guns at home, and a meat grinder. I’ll be fine.”
The man told reporters his name is Brett Shelley, and he claimed to be a lead engineer with a Veterans Affairs health project. After he appeared, the OFA members skedaddled off the Capitol steps and headed for the lawn, according Woodruff:
“I don’t know what happened, man,” Shelley told reporters with a laugh after the OFA rally abandoned him on the Capitol steps. “Why they running away from me?”
