Tea Party Follies: HuffPost Documents Right-wing Silliness

April 15 is right around the corner, of course, which means it's another opportunity for the malcontents to protest taxes and everything else they don't like—it's a long, long list.

This year the noisy anti-everything crowd will be holding Tea Parties, using tea as a symbol of their discontent. Last time we checked, three Tea Parties will be held right here in T-town.

Happily, our friends over at The Huffington Post have put together a series of amateur videos of the last set of Tea Parties, videos that reveal the vague and sometimes silly nature of their cause (including the Obama-wasn't-really-born-in-the-U.S. meme).

You can find the videos here.
