The wife, daughter, and I attended the Saint Charles Tea Party Express rally this afternoon for a couple of hours. We didn't feel that it wasn't as well-organized or attended as the Tax Day Tea Party we attended last year downtown. It was good to see a bunch of small-government types willing to come out, but most of the attendees were older folks, with a few children scattered about.
Below are some pictures, and at the bottom of this post is a short video of the crowd I took from the stage.
Here's the back of the crowd as we approached.
Don't tread on the baby!
A few crowd shots.
Uh oh, now you've really pissed her off!
A few pro-Obama protesters appeared, and brought Teh Funny.
And finally, a short video of the crowd from the stage.
