Here is a quick and dirty video overview of today’s Tea Party Express/9-12 Project demonstration in Washington DC (be patient, the video may not actually be available for a little while but we have to go out so I am posting the nascent links).

This was NOT a demonstration against “big government” as CNN just reported. It was a clear and pointed demonstration against Barack Obama and the Democrat Congress, particularly in relation to the Democrat health care reform proposals.

Big winners today: Glenn Beck, Joe Wilson, and the US Constitution.
Big losers: Barack Obama, the Democrat Congress, ACORN.
