With the colossal failure of the latest hundred man march to remove Obama from office, Operation American Spring, Twitter had a lot of fun with the hashtag #AmericanSpringExcuses. There were some great ones. Keith Lowell Jensen got into the act:

Well that’s true. You gotta find out who is the baby daddy.

About Ed Brayton

After spending several years touring the country as a stand up comedian, Ed Brayton tired of explaining his jokes to small groups of dazed illiterates and turned to writing as the most common outlet for the voices in his head. He has appeared on the Rachel Maddow Show and the Thom Hartmann Show, and is almost certain that he is the only person ever to make fun of Chuck Norris on C-SPAN.

    It was such a joke from the word go. There was no organization. There was never AFAIK any discussion of the LOGISTICS of getting millions of people to Washington DC How is a tenth of the population of the country supposed to get there in one day? (I heard a quote from someone who “… took the day off for this …”) At least with the million man march (almost 20 years ago now!), they had buses. Did these yahoos even have 1 bus?

    Oh they had buses. It’s just that the half that refused to sit at the back, threw the other half under the wheels.

    The Invisible Hand of the Free Market, of course. The IHOTFM is magic and can do everything.

    The leader of this boondoggle actually suggested the rain was the reason for the low turn-out, in spite of the hotels being at full occupancy. This is the level of competency we’re now used to from America’s right wing; it’s merely a matter of small degrees between him and John Boehner, Mitch McConnell, or John Roberts.

    I think they found out about the Women in Secularism conference across the river in Alexandria and they were intimidated by the fact that a bunch of brilliant women would be so close. They knew they couldn’t win.

    There would have been a lot there, but they locked the doors after seeing a black person and couldn’t get out of the car.

    LOL. Saw a rainbow is my fave of those.

    Incidentally there were five thousand plus at the March in May rally against the Right wing Abbott agenda in Adelaide, South Oz, today.

    So I think we beat ‘em numbers~wise – smaller population and less patriotic partisan politicial community and all.

    But those Australian protestors didn’t have to worry about Obamadrones.

    I still find the rain excuse funny, especially because it’s from the horse’s mouth. Revolution canceled on account of rain.

    Rather than admit they’re unorganized or that they grossly overestimated the number of people they could pull, they end up insulting the very people they’re trying to rally by saying they aren’t serious enough to put up with a minor inconvenience.

  • John Pieret

    Let’s just go with the simplest explanation: idiots don’t organize well.

  • dingojack

    Rain can have a serious effect on history. Consider the demise of Citizen Robespierre.

    Who among us can forget the inspiring painting of Washington refusing to cross the Delaware because of a slight drizzle?

  • Al Dente

    You’d think the American Spring people would be happy about the rain. It would make it more difficult for the Obamadrone operators to find their targets. Or is that too practical for the organizers?

    I know right? If there’d been… Sunshine… They’d have seen way better turnout from their true… Patriots…

  • JPS

    The middle of last week I checked the Washington, D.C. events reservation web site as well as that of the National Park Service for the National Mall and Capitol grounds, and couldn’t find anything for Operation American Spring. (There likely are other resources that I couldn’t find.)

    I couldn’t go because I ruptured my spleen laughing at them/.

    The revolution will not be televised and there is, apparently, no rain date.

  • yoav

    You can’t expect them to go out in the rain, we all know what happens to TrueAmericanPatriots™ when they get wet.
