Meanwhile, among the Socialists, another backlash

President Obama's election was at least in part a backlash against the Bush administration.

And all these "Tea Parties" are kind of a backlash against that backlash.

So is this going to be a backlash against the backlash of the backlash?

Obama administration plans "listening tour."

I don't think the tea parties are popular enough to warrant a backlash...

Dude, there will be many, many times more people at these tea parties than these listening tours.

You are probably right. My point was that there will not he enough attendance at these to call it a grass roots uprising or something like that. A few thousand people doesn’t exactly sound to me like a backlash.

I go to enough public events to tell you that, if you can get a couple hundred people at any one of them, it's a big deal.

There are 23 of these things in Georgia alone. Macon's starts in 15 minutes.

I'll go snap a picture of the crowd.
