Victory over the crashers

CrashtheTeaParty set up the pins. Conservative bloggers knocked them down. Tales of hardy tea party activists scaring interlopers out of their rallies are all over the Web today. Moe Lane declares victory, as does Michelle Malkin, who passes on photos and this update on the fate of CrashtheTeaParty founder Jason Levin:

A state board will investigate whether a Beaverton teacher was on his own time or using state resources while he organized liberals to crash Oregon tea parties.

On Thursday, Jason Levin was put on paid leave by the Beaverton School District.

I didn't think conservatives could locate a less fearsome bogeyman than ACORN, but then came Levin. Like "the Yes Men" with full frontal lobotomies.
