Hmmm….That Picture Looks Familiar

Greg Laden posted a link on his blog to an article in the St. Petersburg Times about a photo that has been making the rounds in the wingnut Republican blogosphere.  The photo is supposedly of the tea party that occurred on the Washington mall on September 12th, 2009.  Well, here is the photo:

Well I noticed that the photograph looked just a little too familiar, and here’s the story behind it.

It’s October 1997, I am 12 years old and am on a charter bus with my dad and a bunch of other men from the Pleasant Valley Church of Christ in Little Rock, Arkansas.  We are on our way to Washington D.C.  When we get there we get off the bus in Alexandria, VA and make our way to the metro station so we can get to D.C.  We leave the train at I believe the Federal Triangle station and all of us walk over to the Washington Mall.  The reason we are there:  The Promise Keepers convention on October 4, 1997.  This is the picture of the mall that they sold near the end of the rally and my dad has this EXACT same photograph on the wall of his office at home.

I believe that it is YOU (crazy right wing Republicans)  who are lying this time.

It’s okay, but don’t apologize. If you apologize the terrorists win.
