On the Express Train

Print Friendly

I went to the Tea Party Express rally yesterday in Manchester, N.H.
Living only a couple of miles away from the venue I decided to ride my bike. I’m glad I did. It was held in a park in downtown Manchester. Turns out there wasn’t a parking spot anywhere near it. I’d guess there were at least 1,000 people in attendance. That may not sound like a lot, but for a small city in a small state the turn out was good & boisterous. Did I mention it was about 90 degrees with about 100% humidity? That didn’t dampen the spirits of the attendees. It did, however, dampen more than a few shirts. Everyone came to see Sarah Palin speak. She was great. Palin had a speech prepared which she followed but I also noticed her speaking extemporaneously. Pretty uncommon in this day & age.
Look Mom, no teleprompter!

This was the first time I’ve seen her speak live. I understand why people gravitate toward her. I liked her before but she is very engaging in person. Palin is very real, very personable & quite likeable, not to mention very conservative. Oh, and not an uglo-american. No wonder she pisses off so many on the left. I didn’t hear her saying anything regarding taking out the Sons of Bitches either. I must have come late. Speaking of which; I ran into a couple of friends there & they observed not seeing the usual disruptive lefty whackos. I hadn’t noticed, but they were right. There were only a couple of them out by the street waving a sign about Big Oil. One of them was dressed in a Polar Bear suit. That must have been comfortable in the heat. I regret not getting a picture.

Holy Crap! I just noticed. This is a New Hampshire Tea Party Rally. What’s a black guy doing here? I didn’t think they were allowed in?

Anyway, I’m glad I went. That’s the nice thing about New Hampshire at this time. Everyone must come here so there will be plenty more events to attend.
