Our good friend Judd Legum is in complete denial about the anti-tax movement sweeping the country. Legum, who takes offense to the fact that somebody carried this sign around a tea party protest elsewhere, has this smart-ass comment:
Those involved with organizing the protests appear to be a distinct minority.
- There have been hundreds of tea parties around the nation with participation ranging in the thousands.
- Pro-Obama protests draw fewer people than a high school history class.
The fact of the matter is that Legum and the rest of the extreme left in this country do not understand the problems the Tea Party crowd has with them. Namely the fact that we alreay pay too much in taxes and that irresponsible spending that puts our nation further and further in debt is not supported by the preponderance of Americans.
If Legum wants to come out and support higher taxes, more staist government, and the continued dimunition of economic and personal liberty, he can own it all he wants. But Legum is in a considerably large state of denial if he thinks he is anything but far, far, FAR outside the modern American mainstream. Then again, that shouldn’t be a surprise, given the low opinion that a lot of Democrats I have spoken with have for Legum….
I dare Legum to have a counter, anti-Tea Party protest on Wednesday. See how many people show up for that one, skippy.
