Tens of thousands of people converged on Capitol Hill on Saturday to protest against government spending

I’m glad so many people turned out for the 9/12 Tea Party protest and everything, but I can’t help but wonder, where were you guys during the election?  Y’know, a few months ago we had a chance to pick out who’d be making decisions in the government, and yet here we are.  They’re called elections, and they happen every couple of years, usually in November.  Mark your calendars.  Here’s hoping you show up for the next one.
