compared to the nice, clean, well-behaved Obama supporters
Somebody needs to submit a FOIA request for the overtime records of the National Mall maintenance crew after any of the anti-war demonstrations, the Obama inauguration, and the million-plus Tea Party last September. I was at that one, and the trash was not only minimal; what trash that overflowed available cans was neatly piled next to the cans. The Park Service had in fact removed most of the trash cans so they could not be used for projectiles. Even so, Tea Partiers contained any discards on the Capitol grounds to a small area near a temporary anchor fence put there to control the crowd-- which didn't need controlling.
