Where has the Tea Party gone? Why haven't we seen them in the streets lately?

In other Tea Party news, Tea Party Patriots spokesman Mark Meckler was arrested at a New York airport while declaring his permitted, locked, and unloaded gun per TSA regulations. Leslie has the full story at Temple of Mut, and Sarah Bond discusses it with KOGO radio's LaDona Harvey here (starting 01:40). Apparently the local cops have a history of harassing lawful gun owners in violation of federal law. I think there's going to be blowback on this one.
