Showering Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner with cash:
$28,130 could be yours
You are probably as upset about the bailouts as we are. Well, Washington isn’t listening, so let’s turn up the volume. Come up with an idea, grab a camera, and send us your best 30-second video opposing government bailouts.
Be creative. Make us laugh. Teach us. Above all, make us oppose the bailouts. We will begin accepting submissions on February 23rd. The person or team that submits the “best video” will win $28,130 - one person’s personal bailout burden.
Check back for submissions requirements, rules, regulations, and full details on Thursday, February 12th.

That was awesome, I hope they do something like this on SNL. Thanks for the chuckle.
It’s really on. Tomorrow, thousands of sick and tired taxpayers on the ground and online will participate in “Tea Parties” across the country. Go here for links and locations. Chuck Simmins also has a handy thumbnail guide, as does Little Miss Attila, whose list I’m reprinting below the Tea Party Twitter widget, with as many additions as I can keep up with through the night.
A Cedar Rapids group will do a symbolic tea dumping into the Cedar River on Saturday because state officials won’t let them use the real thing.
An anti-tax group wanted to pitch in real tea like the Bostonian revolutionaries opposed to England’s tea taxes.
Tea, although natural and quite tasty, is considered a pollutant that can’t go into a body of water without a permit, said Mike Wade, a senior environmental specialist at the DNR’s Manchester field office.
“Discoloration is considered a violation,” Wade said.
