Here we see radical congressman Keith Ellison, surrounding himself with signs supporting Planned Parenthood, AFSCME, and AFGE; a giant DREAM ACT poster; a giant poster of TED FREAKING KENEDY; someone who thinks "Medicaid ROCKS!" and someone else who is a "PERSON OF FAITH" for "MEDICARE" (or -CAID, I can't really tell) and a guy with a plastic butt.
Which is to say, all of these people were bought and paid by union shills to show up for the cause.
But Heaven forbid that a tea party protest -- full of actual unpaid volunteers who are voicing their individual opinion about our country without any money exchanging hands, manifest itself anywhere in the land. That'd be REALLY REALLY SCARY!
US Representative Keith Ellison speaks at a rally on July 28, 2011 during a protest against the debt ceiling debate on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC. US Republican lawmakers Thursday pressed ahead with a vote on a plan to avert a calamitous US debt default, ignoring White House warnings of a veto as the political wrangling infected global markets. Republican House Speaker John Boehner was to put his two-step plan to raise the nation's $14.3 trillion debt limit to the House of Representatives, even though a majority of senators have vowed to block it in the US Senate led by the Democratic Party.

PS: Speaking of the DREAM ACT -- I DREAM of a day when reporters will finally understand that paid protesters do NOT represent the average American's opinion, and that this newfound realization can become the start of us actually regaining some of our nation's collective sanity.
Of course, as most DREAMS are, the odds of this actually happening are essentially zero.
PPS: The America hating Democrats in the U.S. Senate have vowed to block any Republican-created plan... but Republicans refuse to compromise. Based on that lack of logic, is there any way we can pass a constitutional amendment deporting the entire media establishment to Turkmenistan or something?
