Wasn’t it just a few years ago that Mustard Gas shell and dual use chemicals didn’t count as Weapons of Mass Destruction?

the only thing that would have satisfied the left that Saddam had WMDs would have been discovering a giant SPECTRE-sized Ken Adam-styled laboratory with men in white lab coats hard at work caught in the act.

Well lo and behold the same day that islamic terrorists slaughter a bunch of people in Moscow we pick up a Christian Militia group and apparently what they have is suddenly considered WMD.

I must also say that it’s interesting to see that Improvised Explosive Devices with Explosively Formed Projectiles, which, according to the indictment are “weapons of mass destruction.” That blows a big hole in the notion that there weren’t weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.

Via Glenn. I eagerly await the retraction of all the stories about no WMD in Iraq by all the sources on the left who attacked the Bush Administration.

The room at the Border Grille and Bar was very full. I counted 86 heads in the place, I think a few more might have turned up after we started but then a few more might have left before things were done too.

Interviewed several people there before things got going (will be uploading them to YouTube in the morning) quite a few were first time people who had never attended an event and wanted to see what was going on. Most had never been involved in any kind of activism.

As always the food at the Boarder Grille & Bar was first rate.

Several candidates showed up, the most impressive of the batch was a fellow running for State auditor.

The fellow from the Worcester Tea Party’s presentation (which took place after the candidates) was too long and not well organized, he had a lot to say about what they had done and a few very good points (particularly about building a farm system via lower office) but he should have condensed and organized his presentation better. His hostility to Sarah Palin didn’t play well with several of us there and he really annoyed DaHospitalityGuy. Perhaps he is more of a doer than a talker. Not everyone has the same gifts.

Once he was off stage there was a series of suggestions and give and take with the crowd that was very effective, Fitchburg & Leominster has great potential for growth in this area.

When things were all over I had a pleasant conversation with Roxeanne of Haemet which lasted long after the room had emptied.

This was only the second meeting and they doubled their crowd. I think Justin did a really good job and will only continue to improve with time. With different groups in Gardner and Ayer I doubt this is going away anytime soon.

Update: Meanwhile Stacy reports on a larger Tea Party event out west.
