The Tea Party held its annual Tax Day rallies this week, and not that many people showed up. In 2009, the Tea Party turned out tens of thousands. This year, crowds of a few hundred, or a few dozen, or even just a dozen. "Judging by their public events -- which is what we used to judge them by when we said they were strong -- the Tea Party seems to have peaked," Rachel said on the show. "It seems to be over. Someone please tell the Beltway press."
If you want to see a political movement on the wax as opposed to the Wane, check out the drive to recall Wisconsin Republican state senators. @Triumph68 forwards the pic below of petition signatures to recall State Senator Luther Olsen being delivered yesterday. Organizers says they're delivering the signatures required to recall State Senator Sheila Harsdorf today. They join State Senators Randy Hopper and Dan Kapanke on the recall list -- meaning recall proponents will soon have four of the eight contests they seek.
