I heard a statistic several years ago, that Republicans in general were happier than Democrats... I'd like to see what that study finds now.
In a related story, a couple of surveys discussed on the radio this morning seemed to indicate that between 18% and 24% of the US population self identify as Tea Baggers. Of that group, most are white married men with above average income and education. These results seem to fly in the face of some of the media footage I've seen of their events, but perhaps it's more just an indication of the diverse nature of this movement.
Anyway, I could continue with a long opinion spewing piece about these folks which may be partly true and may be partly false as well. But dammit, this is supposed to be a place where I can share stuff which amuses me, and to be completely honest, these people are starting to make me nervous. The surveys discussed earlier, also indicated that the main emotion being felt by the baggy folks is anger. I worry that this anger and irrational behavior will reach a point where it spills over into violence, and will put my family at risk... But again, this isn't the place.
Please enjoy this hilarious live blogging report from a gentleman in Boston. It's moderately funny if you ready it from the top, but I had a hard time holding the laughter in, when I read it from the bottom up.
