The Tea Party Express III kicked off their cross country road trip on Sunday in Harry Reid’s hometown of Searchlight, Nevada. This rolling Tea Party will make a stop in Cleveland on Sunday, April 11th on their way to Washington, DC.
By all accounts it was successful beyond anybody's wildest expectations. But you wouldn’t know that from CNN.
CNN's Fredricka Whitfield reporting on the event proclaimed "Hundreds of people, at least dozens of people - we haven't gotten a count of how many people turned out there.” Video here.
Maybe she should have tuned in Fox News to check out the crowd! I sure looked like more than “dozens of people”.
And how could “dozens of people” driven so many cars?
This photo was taken at 1:35 p.m. More than an hour and a half after the rally started and people were lining the highway still trying to get in. The actual rally is in the upper left corner of this photo.

Mark Steyn commented "With counting skills like that, no wonder they think being trillions of dollars in debt is a great way to control costs."
UPDATE: Several people have asked for video of this event.
