Tea Party Rally Canceled Because of MassResistance's Presence!

This was supposed to be a post about the Tea Party Rally going on in Lexington this Sunday, supposed to be. I was going to write about all the conservative politicians attending along with the infamous leader of that nationally recognized hate group MassResistance, and, well, see for yourself:

Tea Party to rally on the Battle Green in Lexington

The rally, which will take place on Sunday, July 25, from 1 to 3 p.m., will include addresses by Jesse Segovia, the event organizer and chairman of the Lexington Republican Town Committee, WRKO Radio talk show host Todd Feinberg, and Brian Camenker, president of MassResistance, an organization that describes itself as a “pro-family action center for Massachusetts” and which opposes gay marriage.

According to Segovia, other speakers followed Dahlberg’s lead and began pulling out during the day on Thursday, prompting him to cancel the rally.

I bet he won't use fair, predictable and honorable.
