You may have seen some of the media coverage of these “Tea Party” protests around the country, grassroots displays of dissatisfaction with the economic stimulus act and assorted fiscal shenanigans out of Washington, D.C.
The movement grows out of Rick Santelli’s now-famed “bad behavior” rant on CNBC a couple of weeks ago, and you can read more background about it in this Weekly Standard piece here. (Bloggers Instapundit and Michelle Malkin have both reported extensively on the protests).
It’s come to my attention that the Central Arkansas Campaign for Liberty has one of these protests scheduled for Saturday, March 14, at 5 p.m. at the Peabody Hotel in Little Rock to coincide with Sen. Blanche Lincoln’s big money fundraiser with Vice President Joe Biden.
All the details are here on their Meet-Up page. As of this writing, about 15 people have RSVP’d, so click over there and give the kids a boost, if that’s the kind of thing you’re into. I post it here because I’ve been contacted by people asking if such an event was planned in Arkansas.
Will the Arkansas Project be there? Well, I ran the numbers on this and determined that the odds of my attending are exactly zero, because I am, as we’ve ascertained, the laziest blogger in Arkansas. However, if an attendee sends me photos, I’ll post them on the blog, especially if cute girls are involved. Because in addition to being lazy, I’m kinda sleazy.
UPDATE: Via Instapundit, an anonymous media producer type offers some professional guidance for protest organizers to get more bang for their buck with the media. Good advice there; organizers should read these tips.
UPDATE: OK, Central Arkansas Campaign for Liberty, you guys just went national because Glenn Reynolds at Instapundit linked to this post.
