Drudge linked a report from the NBC affiliate in DC which told the story of some too-polite "protesters":
It was a great idea, really. Take a million tea bags and dump them in Lafayette Park to protest government spending. Hip, hip, hoo-ray!
But a funny thing happened en route to a visually pleasing Tax Day protest. The National Park Service said the tea party protesters didn't have the proper permit to dump their bags.
So instead of a raucous visual demonstration, all that was left were images of the tea party packing up their boxes of tea on a cold, soggy day in D.C.
You've got to be kidding -- these supposedly indignant taxpayers don't follow through on their plans because of a permit?! I don't think that was an issue at Boston Harbor...
Do they issue permits to everyone who trashes the National Mall every Fourth of July?
