There may be tea party protesters wandering the halls of Congress, and inundating members’ office, by the thousands today–but some of the very people they hope to impact seem to be all but unaware of them.

“Are they doing that?” asked Sen. Ben Nelson (D-NE), tongue planted firmly in cheek. “Oh good, good!”

Does that mean he’s battening down the hatches and preparing for an onslaught? Quite the opposite!

“We’re very friendly up there, so I know they’ll get a warm reception.”
