Conservatives and libertarians of a certain stripe will take to the streets tomorrow -- urged and prodded by Fox News and right-wing pundits -- to protest the Obama administration's tax policies. What are they rebelling against? What've you got?! The protest appears pulled together by a grabbag of issues, ranging from overtaxation, to the national debt, and the decision "to appoint a defender of child pornography to the Number 2 position in the Justice Department" (a pretty wild distortion). And yes, as cable news and late-night fans know, the protest has launched a nationwide celebration of teabagging jokes.
We can't wait to see the signs, the street theater, the giant, scary papier mache Timothy Geithners and Larry Summers stalking across the nation's malls and town squares. Help Salon cover the protests! We'll promote the best contributions on Open Salon -- your photos, video, interviews, accounts -- on the Open and Salon covers. Help us capture a national snapshot of what will surely be a unique day of national fun and fury.
