The big Teabaggers Express bus rolled into town today as one stop on a 37 city "Countdown to Judgment Day" Tour. The several hundred person rally in the SE 12th and Burnside parking lot of Michael's Italian Beef (talk about a sausage fest...) included the usual speeches and singing of "God Bless the USA" but hey! Special additions to this protest that weren't at the previous tea bag protests in town: tons of fresh new anti-Obama schwag! Here's a visual compendium:
- These tote bags only $5 with purchase of an anti-Obama t-shirt!!
Unfortunately, the protest is wrapping up right now, so you're going to have to book it down there to snag the t-shirt that will stop socialism dead in its tracks. On the other hand, they'll probably be easier to steal as the buses are loading out...
