Sarah Palin, Andrew Breitbart Booed by Labor Supporters at WI Tea Party Event: "Shame, Shame, Shame!"

Saturday's Tea Party rally at the Wisconsin state capitol building was impressive in that it featured big names like Sarah Palin and Andrew Breitbart. But unfortunately for them, the Tea Partiers were greatly outnumbered, and shouted down, by labor supporters gathered at the capitol. The Progressive reports:

There were about 1,500 tea partiers, many bused in by Americans for Prosperity, the rightwing group funded by the Koch brothers.

The tea partiers were surrounded by about 3,000 or more pro-labor supporters, who let their presence be felt with raucous chants and boos and cries of “Shame, shame, shame!”

Things really heated up when the headliner took the stage:

[W]hen Sarah Palin was announced, the tea partiers gave her a big ovation, and the protesters booed heartily.

Palin told the crowd, “Your governor did the right thing.”

And she praised the tea party people.

“We will fight with you, tea partiers,” she said. “We have your back"....

Throughout her brief speech, the protesters booed and yelled, “Sarah Palin, Go Home.”

According to Raw Story, Breitbart got similar treatment and shouted back at the crowd, "Go to hell!" Watch the video here:
