Abe Sauer sends in this shot of the Tea Party Express bus parked in Hudson, Wisc., today at the first stop of its "Restoring Common Sense" tour across the state in advance of recall elections of state senators scheduled for Tuesday. Pointing out typos on hand-lettered signs is a form of low-brow political mockery indulged in on both sides of the aisle; it's less common to see such typos -- as in the misspelling of September, above -- make it all the way onto a motorized vehicle sponsored by a major independent group.
