Paul Ryan keeps using that word. I don't think it means what he thinks it means.
Ground zero for the clashing "mobs" on Saturday was the King Street entrance to the Capitol Square, where the Tea Party Rally was held, and pro-Walker demonstrators had to pass by the "union thugs" ringing the square.
Some "union thugs" brought attack dogs to intimidate the crowd.
This guy was frequently photographed. Sometimes he wore the belt, sometimes he held it up like a sign.
The small sign above the American Postal Workers banner in this picture is my favorite. It says: "They can have their tea party. I'm a Wisconsinite and I want a kegger"
