What a long strange trip its been!

In the 1960s, the hippies in San Francisco protested the establishment. In 2010, two of SF's better known ex-hippies, guitarists Bob Weir and Phil Lesh of the Grateful Dead, host a fundraiser for establishment politician Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) and the Tea Partiers line the streets to protest them (photo courtesy of Fund47):

This protest took place July 18 in San Rafael and was organized by the Carly Fiorina for CA Senate campaign. More photos are here. A video of the protest, including a photo of Sen. Boxer's reaction has her car passes through the Tea Party is here.
