It's Up and Crashing In 3... 2... 1...
The Paultard Blimp -- defying all odds, concepts of fiscal restraint and strains of Western logic -- launched this morning from Elizabeth City, NC, en route to Columbia, SC for Sunday's Tea Party. There's a gallery of the launch here, and after the jump, a roundup of the Blimptards' coverage.
