What a busy day!

People do lots of things every April 15, and this year was no exception. 

Here in Michigan, Joe the Plumber came to Lansing for a Tea Party.  He was joined by Howell School Board member Wendy Day and Congressman Mike Rogers.  Mr. Rogers also unveiled his "Washington Waste Watch" website, which conveniently omits the $17.6 million worth of earmarks he personally inserted. 

In the meantime, responsible elected officials avoided the tea party media circus and worked to balance budgets and create jobs.  

Hale Stewart offered an interesting analysis of the politics (and economic realities) behind the "tea parties."
