You’ve got to give it to the Tea Party Patriots: They really know how to organize a rockin’ road trip.

It seems the TPP is organizing an “Audit the IRS Rally” in Washington on Wednesday, and, as an extra enticement for the long bus rides tea partyers might be in for from parts unknown to the capital, the party is announcing its own in-ride movie entertainment.

Ah, the American road trip. Is there any better film genre? It’s given us everything from “The Wizard of Oz” to “Easy Rider,” from “Smokey and the Bandit” to “National Lampoon’s Vacation,” “Planes, Trains and Automobiles,” “Road Trip” and a personal favorite, “Midnight Run.”

So which indelible flick is going to help pass the long hours on the road?

“The Tea Party Patriots, the nation’s largest tea party organization, today announced they will show ‘Hating Breitbart,’ a documentary that explores the life and impact of the late media guru Andrew Breitbart, on the buses carrying local and national tea party groups to Washington, D.C., on Wednesday for the ‘Audit the IRS Rally.’ The film chronicles Breitbart, the man, through some of his biggest media battles as he exposed the corporate media’s unwillingness to cover certain stories,” the TPP said in a Monday release.

Oh, well. Can’t be entertained all the time.
