Wolcott dings Glenn Reynolds and the tea baggers and recalls the massive pro-immigration rallies of three years ago:

The difference is that the Tea Parties, heavily promoted by Fox News and talk radio, are a white-people production, which ipso facto makes them more representative to Glenn Reynolds and associates of what "real Americans" think and believe than an ocean of brown-skinned people practicing civic activism. If any of the Tea Parties have a six-figure turnout, I'll be impressed. But I suspect that you'll have to blow up the aerial shot real large--until the film grain is as big as asteroid-sized Grape Nuts--to find a black or brown face in this particular Army of Davids.
