Astoria Tea Party

There were 280 in attendance. The Gannaway Bros and spouse- dressed up (she is Sarah). That made for fun photo time- but this protest was serious stuff and many from Oregon and Washington showed up to express their convictions about what is going on with our Government.

The Daily Astorian had a nice front page article!

here is my quote:

"Nansen Malin, chairwoman of the Pacific County Republican Party, said the tea parties - with help from social networking technology - are bringing out an unusual grassroots spirit among conservatives.

"Conservatives are not accustomed to protest," she said. "They've hit a threshold."

She's hoping the newfound energy will breathe enough life into the Republican Party to "take back Congress" in 2010. "
