Watch out, they're back. On Sunday the latest in Tea Party protests will hit Los Angeles as part of another bus tour across the country. The traveling two-plus week event, which will be in its first day, promises to "highlight some of the worst offenders in Congress who have voted for higher spending, higher taxes, and government intervention in the lives of American families and businesses," according to its website. Continued: "Let’s stand up and stop the bailouts, cap and trade, out-of-control spending, government-run healthcare, and higher taxes! We’re back and determined to take our country back!"

This is the second tour, aptly subheaded as the "Countdown to Judgment Day," which is in reference to the one-year countdown to the 2010 elections.

If you want to attend, counter protest, check out a goofy scene, take it seriously or whatever you want, it's in Griffith Park on Sunday at 4:30 p.m. And it doesn't look like organizers are expecting that big of crowd. The rally's specific location is on Pad D in the Crystal Springs Area.
