So the president showed up in Quincy, IL today to talk about Wall Street reform and a group of teabaggers showed up to stand with Wall Street. Apparently, they found it amusing that a SWAT team stood across the street. In fact, they smiled and posed for pictures with the SWAT boys behind them — “unbelievable,” is how they described it.
But they’re projecting the tyranny here. I spoke with Sgt. Folkenroth of the Quincy Police Department; he doesn’t think that’s their SWAT team in the picture, but the Secret Service — which is currently tasked with responding to a record high number of death threats. I’ll be confirming this tomorrow.
