They Are Stardust, They Are Golden Girls --- yet another "conservative Woodstock"

They Are Stardust, They Are Golden Girls

by digby

One of the ways you can tell that the tea party movement is made up of aging baby boomers (like me) is the fact that they keep describing various events as their "Woodstock." (They must have been Brylcream and hairspray kids back in the day and missed all the fun the first time.) The rally in Searchlight came first and now they're planning one for 9/11 --- which sort of besmirches both events:

An event described as the “Woodstock” of tea parties is planned for Sept. 11 at the Monona County Fairgrounds in Onawa in western Iowa.

The event will have a “Take back our country” theme, Halverson said. Although the activities will occur on the ninth anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on New York and Washington, he said organizers don’t plan to spend the day reflecting on those events.
Wouldn't want to harsh their mellow.

Jon Perr gets the quote of the day on this one:

While details of the event remain sketchy, the theme song of the September 11 Woodstock event should be Procul Harum's "Whiter Shade of Pale."
