Poking them in the eye

Poking them in the eye

This group of Tea Party supporters in Ithaca decided to carry signs outside Republican Tom Reed’s office, which must have felt like a poke in the eye to most Ithacans.

Hey, poking Ithaca in the eye is my job!

A couple of pictures of the Ithaca Tea Party’s rally outside Congressman Reed’s office on Friday.

Wanted to thank him for standing up in support of hard-working American families and urge him to stay strong and not back down.

Reed’s office was closed but we got some thumbs up and honks.

    Has anyone considered that Yogi Bear is probably running wild without any rangers present? Oh, wait… there are no campers.

    Poor Yogi. He needs hisself sum ‘a that FREE Gummint Cheese.

Sad that all these folks are middle-aged and there are no CU or IC students in the picture.

I wouldn’t call them terrorists, but the guy pictured all the way to the right has three legs and he’s holding his poster with three hands. That’s just creepy!

    There seems to be an extraneous “leg part” hanging down under the sign being held by the chubby guy in the red polo shirt. And right up the side of that dangling leg piece is a nice little margin between the denim and the sign on the far right. Somebody Photoshopped something out of this photo, and the post and construction material on the building in the background just above that piece looks like it has been messed with.

    I have the photo open in CS6, and in Photoshop terms, this is pretty good overall work but sloppy leaving something hanging there like that. It is, however, better than Obama’s birth, certificate, because they at least combined all the layers in this one.

    It doesn’t do the Tea Party any good to have manipulated photos out there. While the Leftist media ignores the amateurish work of his “birth certificate”, they will be all over this.

    Oh, the FIATO Construction Company truck in the background got tagged with FIAT and the ‘no’ sign in place of the ‘O’. Somebody must own one. 😆

      …also, look behind the lady in the powder-blue shirt. There is someone in a champagne-colored car passing by shooting the finger. Classy… Ithaca. Classy.

    Middle Aged Mutant Ninja Tea Party?

Ithaca is sorely in need of a new Odysseus to set things right. Methinks he or she may be in this photo.

Where’s that old bow…
