Several hundred Tea Partiers gathered at the Arizona capitol in Phoenix today to greet the Tea Party Express and demand lower taxes, reduced government spending, the repeal of health care reform (but don’t touch government provided medicare) and the end of “Big Government,” however that is defined.
The “surprise” speaker was Sarah Palin, who quit as the governor of Alaska halfway through her first term. She was toting Trig, her youngest son. The Tea Partiers talked a lot about the gains they’re expecting in the national election, from Christine “I am not a witch” O’Donnell in Delaware, to Sharron “the second amendment remedy” Angle, in Nevada, to Joe “unemployment is unconstitutional but I’ll take some” Miller in Alaska the next Senate could have some interesting characters making laws for our nation.
Most of the speakers blasted the “Lamestream Media” for being in the tank for President Obama, but only one radio reporter had the temerity to ask Palin a serious question when he asked her if Arizona Governor Jan Brewer’s decision to curtail ACCCHS for patients on transplant lists was at all like using Death Panels. Palin refused to answer the question.
