You’ve heard about these anti-tax Tea Party protests going on across the country on April 15, Income Tax Day.
What you may not know is that the event planned for the state Capitol next Wednesday may be one of the largest in the country.
Organizers include the Georgia chapter of Americans for Prosperity. See the group’s web site here.
The Atlanta event was running along modest lines until Sean Hannity, the Fox News provocateur, decided to broadcast his 9 p.m. show from the steps of the Capitol, according to Randy Lewis, one of the planners.
Right now, a crowd in the neighborhood of 10,000 is expected. Several city blocks will be shut down — a difficult maneuver, given a Braves game at the same time.
Lewis said there’s talk that country music singer John Rich will be there to sing his latest hit, “Shuttin’ Detroit Down.”
No word on who will supply the hot water or the cups and saucers.
