Here’s another shot of today’s Boise Tea Party rally on the Idaho Capitol steps.

There were a few campaign signs smattered among the crowd; I saw signs for Vaughn Ward, Rex Rammell, and Merrilyn Rohner for Ada County Clerk. A small group of counter-protesters stood on a nearby corner, near a man dressed as Uncle Sam who was holding a sign proclaiming, “Uncle Sam needs Democracy, not Socialism!
