Did they stop by Chris Dodd's house?

Imagining TEH OUTRAGE!!!! had Bu$hitler supporters done what the Obamatrons are doing over the next four years will probably give us ulcers, but it's our job:

A bus tour to the Connecticut homes of AIG executives organized by a small party of activists angered by bonuses paid to staff of the bailed-out insurer drew more reporters than protesters on Saturday.

In the tour, dubbed "Lifestyles of the Rich and Infamous," protesters took a bus that picked up passengers in Hartford and Bridgeport for a 2-1/2 hour trip to see the swanky homes of American International Group executives in exclusive Fairfield County and to AIG's Wilton offices.

The event was organized by Connecticut Working Families, a small liberal political party.

And had this been, say, a group of conservatives brownshirt thugs on a bus tour of the homes of Hollywood leftists who didn't like [insert policy decision here]? FASCISM!!!1!one!!eleventy1!!1!

Oh, and this is rich...

"It seemed like a fun thing to do," said Brian Mills, a 23-year-old student, before an organizer shooed away reporters, telling them to speak with "designated speakers."

Whatever happened to freedom of the press? If Helen Thomas gets moved back a couple of rows, we're living in Nazi Germany all over again, but reporters aren't supposed to speak to anybody but the official Party Line spokespropagandists?  Not a problem.

It's gonna be a fun four years.  I say that because I plan on drinking a lot and pointing out this hypocrisy.  The other shit will probably be scary as hell.  Thus, the drinking.
