Rachel Maddow gives her recap of the tea bag protests today and a few double entendres thrown in for good measure. For all the time Fox put into promoting these protests it seems the turnout was not quite what they had hoped. And apparently Republican protesters don't understand much about permits and not throwing things that could get you into trouble with the Secret Service on the White House lawn.

Ana Marie Cox was at the D.C. tea bag protests today and fills Rachel in on her experiences there.

Can you help us out?
