Carson City, Nevada
Turn down your speakers — the Tea Party in Carson City, Nevada got a little noisy:
Harry Reid, lying desperately, claimed that only 300 patriots attended this event.
Also from Carson City:

Harry Reid is a lying crap weasel!!
That was easily 3 times his estimate.
Didn't he say the war was lost and the surge wasn't working? He's an ass.
He's going to be hurting in 2010...

I counted 94 people on the same side of the street as the camera as it dollied down the street.
I didn't try to count the knot of people, nor the crowd on the far side of the street.
So 300 would be the minimum of my estimate of the crowd pictured, and makes no allowance at all for the people in cars.

It is unfortunate that Nancy Pelosi hops from one coast to the other. Since we're paying for her travels it would be ok for her to stop over half way, fuel up, get out, stretch a bit and learn what the real mainstream of America is about.

The final count for the Carson City protest was over 3700. It is easy to see why the Senate Majority Leader could miscount seeing as it was so close! This is the kind of math that got us here in the first place.
We were blown away at the turnout both here and in Sacramento where we sent some of our staff. This is the most exciting I have seen since the first moon landing!
There was also a second protest outside the Federal building in Reno last night where Senator Reid was hosting a fund raiser. What happened as people left, typifies the weak arguments the left is able to muster when backed into a corner. If it were not so wrong, it would be funny.
It is clear that Harry and Nancy have lost touch with real America, if they ever had touch. We will be launching ads and a new website opposing the Speaker from Nevada next month.
The left does not know how to respond to this. I imagine that the back room talk in Washington is a little more emotional than a quick, "It's just a Fox News promotion".
Keep up the good fight!!!
