Fox: 476,537 Tea Party patriots rally in Columbia

Fitsnews: Politicians, political operatives and members of the media came close to outnumbering attendees at a much-hyped Columbia, S.C. Tea Party rally starring U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann and S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley on Monday.

Only 300 people (including a horde of Palmetto political operatives) attended the event in downtown Columbia, S.C. – which is a generous estimate in our book. That attendance figure – confirmed by other media outlets – amounts to less than one-tenth the size of multiple crowds that have gathered at the S.C. State House in recent years in support of parental choice. It’s also roughly a tenth the size of the crowd that attended this same event in 2009.

😳

Well, at least this guy enjoyed himself (although he looks a little lonely):

Hold on: I’ve just noticed this guy has a ‘McCain/Palin’ badge on his hat … will I tell him or will you? 😕

I thought maybe it was an old photo used for today’s article ….. but, eh, no:

At least he found two over-taxed friends to sit with, so that was nice.

Meanwhile, you have to love the caption under this photo on The State website:

So, 300 is a “large” Tea Party crowd these days? 😆
