So you know about big John Rich and his big ugly house that says "Mt. Richmore" on it that people hate. Yesterday some people on the Twitters
decided to head on down to Love Circle and show Mr. Rich a thing or two. Or maybe just a thing: They shined flashlights at his house in order to make a point about how having bright lights shining at your house is annoying. (John Rich has bright lights shining away from his house, hence the outrage.)
Before these mighty empowered freedom flashers deployed for Love Circle, they were warned
by a sympathetic but concerned friend: "I have six words for you, my beloved tweeps--'Volatile new dad who's likely armed.' " Would chaos reign?
Braving the cold, the obvious futility of their task and the likelihood of antagonizing an armed man who's been known to throw beer bottles in public
, thousands of people (in "teabagger math," as one soldier of democracy put it -- so, like, 15) went anyway. Signs were carried. Flashlights were shined. Cops were called. It was "the wussiest rally ever," according to one protester who also thought the cop was kinda cute. But we learned some facts, thanks to the efforts of these fine, misguided Nashvillians: John Rich watches Fox News on a big ol' TV, and he doesn't password-protect his WiFi network!
