If You Go…

The Maine Tea Party has issued a helpful guide to people going to D.C. this weekend to attend Glenn Beck’s orgy of self-indulgence at the Lincoln Memorial.

If you are on the subway stay on the Red line between Union Station and Shady Grove, Maryland. If you are on the Blue or Orange line do not go past Eastern Market (Capitol Hill) toward the Potomac Avenue stop and beyond; stay in NW DC and points in Virginia. Do not use the Green line or the Yellow line. These rules are even more important at night. There is of course nothing wrong with many other areas; but you don’t know where you are, so you should not explore them.

In other words, avoid the parts of town with Scary Black People. Does that include the 1600 block of Pennsylvania Avenue?

And some people wonder why the Tea Party has trouble attracting minorities.
