Well, Ana wanted to see pics? Here’s just a choice few.

This one was so proud of her sign, that she had it wrapped in plastic:
proud supremacist

The sign over there on the right in this one, below, says “Typical White American Working Mobster” typical white american mobster

Of course, some still can’t resist the references to Osama bin Ladin. What do you want to bet this person had never even heard of Osama bin Ladin before September 11th? Yet alone that they even know how bin Ladin got to where he is? obama bin lyin

Did I hear someone say President Ronald Reagan?

Birthers were there too – check out the brown sign smack dab there in the middle: “Where’s the Birth Certificate?”
birthers were there too

So were seniors that have been fed the “nonsense” Obama spoke of the next day in Colorado Springs…do not kill grandma2

Oh – here’s one more. Let’s hope the pic picks it up up – what we have here is a sign that says “Congress, You Are In Our Site (sic)” which replaces every “o” with the cross sight of a rifle are in our site

That’s how much money the average family would save PER YEAR in America if we had a system of health care that resembled Britain’s! The equation above represents the cost differential per person in America ($7,290) vs. Britain ($2,992) times the average size of the American family (3.15).

And if you would rather see this in a nice pretty graph, here you are. Note that most expensive health care in the world is the U.S. which is on the left of both graphs.

I think that Tea Baggers could buy up a whole lot of stock in Lipton with those kind of savings!

Data from the OECD. Family size from the U.S. Census.

Well, this guest post from Cynthia Wolken has garnered about half the attention it deserved…with a whole bunch of traffic incoming from There’s this link, too, and this one, also – so apparently, it’s quite the topic of discussion over there with them.

No – I’ve not dared to register, but if anyone does, please let us know what is being said behind those walls…

I never did a post on the local coverage – my one post on the event summed up the national coverage…but supermontanareporter John S. Adams, of the Great Falls Tribune, has offered some additional insight to what he saw on the ground in Belgrade during President Obama’s visit on Friday. He’s got a post up at The Lowdown, and this video:

Jay’s got some funny pics, too, up at Left in the West…oh, and he’s finally joined the world of Twitter.
