We've given this some thought and have come to the conclusion that we screwed up at the Tax Day rally at the Midway post office this past Thursday.

As you will recall, there was justifiable angst that lefty agitators would crash the rallies that were going on around the country in an attempt to embarass, discredit or otherwise marginalize the tea party movement, as a whole.

So, what happened at the San Diego rally? This guy...

And why did we screw up? Because we didn't thank the guy. In all seriousness, we should've extended our hand in friendship to this man and thank him for not being flame-thrower by attempting to portray us as truthers, birthers or racists.

As it was, this form of counter-protesting was pretty benign and given the circumstances, pretty amusing.

We regret that his identity was exposed and hope that no one has used this knowledge for ill.

As Leslie has admonished us, to be effective in getting our message out and across, it takes love. Brotherly love dictates that we can disagree without being disagreeable.

Props to every 'partier out there who is making this happen.

I think you're right. I've removed his name from the post, but it's hard to un-ring the bell.

W.C., you're a good man. I totally understand the heat-of-the-moment impulse but you are doing the right thing.

Dean, for what it's worth I agree. As much as I preach reaching out, I have to practice it as well.
