The Tea Bag Revolution


Okay, this is admittedly a cheesy idea, but it's getting some support in the Hot Air community, so I figured I'd air it here.

This spring, CBS canceled the television show "Jericho," which had a moderately large following. Fans of the show were understandably irritated, so they devised a plan to get it back on the air. In the final episode, the main character repeats a line from World War II in response to his enemy's surrender demands - "Nuts!"

The "Jericho" fans decided to go with that theme and sent literally tons nuts to CBS in protest, and it worked. The show will return in the fall.

This gave me an admittedly silly idea. How about a tea party? Send a bag of tea to the White House, and to every member of Congress who represents you.

Yes, yes...it's a stunt that will probably not defeat this bill, but what it will do, if enough tea is sent, is show the extent of voter anger over this bill and get some general media attention.

With the bag, send a note explaining why you're doing this and expressing your intent to vote against the member of Congress if they refuse to follow the desires of those they represent.

I'm planning to encase the tea bags I send in clear packing tape to prevent leakage/security issues. Or another solution is just to send the tea bag label with your note.
