"The best thing to come through Mississippi since cornbread." - Rep. Willie Bailey (D - Greenville) Named one of the best state-based political blogs by the Washington Post R.I.P. Craig Noone (1979-2011)
Tens of tea party protesters took to the steps of the Mississippi Capitol this morning to rally against, well, I'm sure it was something truly terrible. One can conclude that this lightly-attended rally of one of the biggest grassroots political movements of the 21st Century was to object to the influx of federal government money coming in for Governor "Three Mile" Phil Bryant's nuclear dump plan. It's more likely that they were protesting Obamacare and our representatives in Congress. Is anyone brave enough to tell those brave few protesters that our delegation to Congress does not work in that building? Still, it is good to see Americans exercising their right to protest, even on the grounds of government property like our Capitol.
