Tea party

I walked over to Lafayette Park and attended the tea party protest for about 30 minutes. Weather was about as miserable as it could be, with cold and rain the order of the day. I would estimate attendance at about 500, but was hard to make out with all of the umbrellas. I watched Fox News conduct an interview with the organizer of the protest and the reporter placed attendance at 1,000, but I find that a bit, er, optimistic.

I spotted Tobin Smith in attendance as well as lefty blogger Oliver Willis who was busy twittering on his iPhone and even managed to snap a photo of me.

I'll put up my own pics this evening.

Update: Some pics here.
