Can we roll that footage, the FOX News coverage of the Million Man March backing in October of ‘95?Of course, the Million Man March occurred, as NewsHounds.org points out, almost a year before FOX News was on the air.We can only speculate why widespread teabagging made Cavuto think of the Million Man March, unless he got them confused with Dick Armey. And in Cavuto‘s defense, if you are planning simultaneous teabagging all around the country, you‘re going to need a Dick Armey.

Heather posted the full version last night with some very astute insight from Lawrence O'Donnell. Make sure you check out his thoughts.

I understand that this movement is all about trying to reorganize the conservative movement because they have become a rudderless tanker lost at sea, but even their attempts at "grass roots" is a Gingrich/Rove/Armey/FOX News driven event.

Do those attending tea parties truly oppose Obama returning the top marginal tax rate to where it was under President Clinton? Are they really concerned that multi-national corporations may have to pay taxes on profits they earn overseas? Or are they simply following Fox News’ cheerleading, straight into the waiting arms of Dick Armey?
