We Will Conduct Ourselves with Honor
We want as many people as possible with signs to demonstrate our values...
Anyone curious what "Tea Party values" and "Tea Party honor" look like?
Well, for one thing, it involves flying an American flag upside down (the flag right above Jim Durbin: click image to expand):
Apparently, it also involves impersonating members of the Service Employees International Union, one of the most important progressive institutions in the country and a leader in the fight for health care reform:

As far as I know, the only purpose of this gimmick was to try to annoy liberals. I'm personally not really that annoyed (unless I hear something about them trying to act obnoxious to make SEIU look bad), but I think this says volumes about the character of the tea party leaders. They claim that they will be acting with "honor" and then they spend their time impersonating and demonizing those they disagree with.
