The only reason I am comparing MLK to Teaparty is that those are the only hourly numbers that I have to compare. If I had Nov 5th hourly nuimbers or any other hourly bomb numbers I would have posted those too. I am posting this to give an idea where we might end up as far as totals. If you have hourly numbers for Nov 5th or other big bombs then by all means post them. I am in no way trying to diminish the MLK bomb by comparing it to Teaparty.
I will be updating figures hourly. The figures I am getting are from ronpaul2008.com when it hits the top of the hour exactly.

I posted a poll on continuing bomb till 12am Pacific. The results were 6 yes 3 no at midnight so I will post the next 2 hours results as well and that just happens to be the same amount of time I kept track of the Teaparty Bomb. Good work everyone!!!!
Update: My computer crashed just after midnight and I lost my whole excel spread sheet for the day so no more totals. They amounts coming in after midnight were rather small and would not have made much difference to the totals. Good thing I got it all posted here before it crashed.
