I just came from the tea-party rally that was announced at the last minute. The small number (50-100) of protesters was disappointing, but it was a pleasure to talk with some like-minded people who feel that Kay Baily Hutchinson and the rest of congress should pack their bags. KBH is still running a ridiculous radio ad saying she was going to do everything possible to stop the government take over of health care. Her vote Friday tells a different story and people are livid. We lined the street in front of the office tower containing KBH’s office. Numerous motorists sounded their horns in support. There were some big government sympathizers, on the other hand, who shouted obscenities and gave us the one finger salute.

As Tea Party goer, it seems that until something big comes up there may be a danger of too many calls for a protest. When Tea Parties go from enthused to “let's protest at the drop of a hat”, that will lose many people that would no more attend a “protest” that vote dem.

Regarding Kay Bailey's vote with the dems on the Defense Bill, even though she can rightously claim support for our Military, the bigger picture that even us dumb citizens recognized was the necessity to throw as many roadblocks in obamacare as possible, to which the Mil would likely agree.
This was not a good move by KBH, when she could hardly afford anymore “conservative” setbacks.
