Yes they did

Tea Party Protests Began in Seattle. What makes this article worthy of note is it was published in the Seattle Times. Yes, really! I just about fell out of my chair reading it. Of course the comments provided the required daily recommended dose of liberal whining. Some conceded that yes, the first few Tea Party protests were really grassroots, but then Fox supported them and spread the word and that simply cannot be allowed for some reason. Probably because the other networks were doing such a good job of pretending the Tea Parties weren't there and Fox spoiled it. I haven't done an exhaustive search, but I think this is the first real article where the Seattle Times even mentions the President's Day Porkulus protest and Keli Carender. I was at that protest. Not because anybody told me to, but because it was such a RELIEF to be able to gather with like-minded folk and speak out against the damage being done by Obama and Congress. I'm guessing some of the spittle-flecked invective from the commenters to that article is caused by fear. They didn't know there were so many of us. Living in the same city. Undetectable. Why, you can hardly see the horns!

The most pathetic disconnect the left has shown over the tea parties is the insistence that, because Fox helped spread the word and some of the speakers were not just random names out of a phone book, the parties were somehow funded and directed by the VRWC with Fox hired to astroturf them. The ironic part is that Fox was just doing the job the rest of the media won't, disseminating information of public interest.

I could have swore that obama got elected by a grassroots campaign. Now when the right does it it's a bad thing?
