The players are the same--it's still conservatives versus hippies and the people versus the establishment. The backdrop is the same--peaceful protests in the streets of the United States. But there is one huge difference between the Tea Party movement and the protests of the Sixties. This time, the conservatives are protesting the establishment, which is populated by ex-hippies. And no Sixties-style protest should lack a good protest folk song.
Now the Tea Partiers have one, courtesy of Congressional candidate Joel Pollak of Illinois. He unveiled it at a Chicago Tea Party on Tax Day, and judging from the applause it went over pretty well. Pollak's New Media Advisor is Royal High graduate Owen Paun.
Pollak already has some YouTube hits under his belt. He's the Harvard student that garnered national attention for grilling Barney Frank, and for exposing the Left's attempt to derail healthcare protests.
