He said there?d be at least 10 million and maybe as many as 30 million, but only about 200 or 300 folks joined Harry Riley’s Operation American Spring rally on May 16 in Washington, D.C.

Making it worse for Riley’s Tea Party flop, insult is being added to the injury of that sparse attendance. While he came nowhere near his promised count, the number of persons participating in a new Twitter hashtag game ? #AmericanSpringExcuses ? making fun of their failure is coming close to that 10 million Riley hoped for.


Here’s a quick Top 20 of those tweets (and with heartfelt apology to the dozens of chubby, old white guys who actually attended).
