Instapundit defends those protesting Davids:

RICK MORAN THINKS THE “TEA PARTY” PROTESTS are amateurish and disorganized.[1] . . . Of course they’re amateurish. Most of these people have never organized a protest before (hence the tendency to do things like forget bullhorns[2]). That’s what you get at the beginning of a movement. But it’s much bigger news when 200 people with jobs who’ve never protested turn out, than when 20,000 of the usual suspects organized by ACORN or ANSWER march with preprinted signs.

Maybe. I do like Glenn’s point that they’re amateurish because, well, they’re being done by amateurs — and that’s a refreshing distinction from lefty rent-a-crowds.

But I don’t agree with his prediction later in the post that these “tea parties” will swell till they become swell.

Conservatives don’t really do “protest” so good. It’s not just because, yes, we’re at our fascist jobs or in our suffocating traditional homes being productive and responsible. It’s that we’re… conservative people.

That’s okay.
