Fresno’s Tea Party held a rally at Chukchansi Park Saturday, April 10.  With a capacity of 12,700, the park looked pathetically empty when only 3,800 people showed up to vent their displeasure with the government.  The event drew roughly half the number who attended last year’s rally at Save-Mart Center, also in Fresno.

In a stunning admission of the priorities of Tea Party members,  organizers blamed low turnout to “Big Hat Days”, a craft show/street fair in the adjoining city of Clovis.
