White Guys Saving America

If you're as desperate as the rest of us for even a hint of cheer in the day's news, here's a picture of the Tea Party's Save America Convention in Florida this weekend. It had so much to offer - Tom Tancredo! John Birch Society and Personhood Florida sponsoring! A battleplan for each attendee! - but only drew about 300 slumped saviors. The day's basketball game drew 18,000. We're doomed, or there's hope, depending on your perspective.
