    DETROIT (AP) - Charlie Gennara thought there would be a sizable showing for a planned "tea party" protest outside the annual international auto show in Detroit on Monday.

    For the first 45 minutes, though, it was just him and one other person voicing their displeasure with the billions in aid spent by the government on General Motors, Chrysler and auto lender GMAC Financial Services.

    "I didn't expect this," said Gennara, a 58-year-old retired carpenter from Northville, Mich. "Most of the tea parties I've been to I've seen 300 or a couple hundred at least."

    This is just ANOTHER example of why the Tea Party "movement" is insignificant.

    They should change their name to the Star Trek Convention Party,

    they'd get 100's of times the attendance, with no downgrade intellectually.

    Now that's funny right there. I don't care who you are.

    And so true to boot!

    Anyone is surprised by this? 1 of every 2 people in Detroit is unemployed. 90% of them are believers in the liberal process even though it was the liberal process for the past 60 years that has held them in poverty.

    They were either to stupid to attend a tea party or someone forgot the offer to pass out free money.
