Actually, there was an amazingly diverse crowd here on the Boston Common today: old, young, men, women, black, white, Asian, Hispanic, business, casual. But there was one thing unifying the whole crowd: they were all smiling; they were all glad to be there; they were all having fun!
And it was a great day for a tea party. I met up with Boston-area blogger extraordinaire Sissy Willis of Sisu, who was working the crowd and having a great time with husband Tuck in tow. I was wearing my Tea Party 2010 tee shirt and presented one to Sissy as well. Sissy, maybe we should make it a habit of doing this every year!
Here’s just a few photos to tide you over until I can sit down and and do some proper editing.
New Tea Party attendee John brought his own version of Yankee ingenuity in his two-sided telescoping sign, and was having a blast!
While there were clearly some “false flag” operations (I got photos of signs and faces, and will post them later), the vast majority of people were there to hear Sarah Palin, exercise their First Amendment rights, and enjoy a beautiful Boston spring day.
More to come!
