Steve Richards said the Tea Party today in St. Paul, Minnesota was fabulous. He loved what Governor Tim Pawlenty had to say and the other speakers were great, too.

"One might think that Minnesota's formal
Tea Party Protest was late since Saturday's date was May 2nd. Not the case. A formal Tea Party was held on April 15th, just as the others were.

Today's event was something separate from that; a follow-up of sorts. Today's event was the annual Tax Cut Rally. Again, ANNUAL! Several thousand concerned tax payer's turned out on this beautiful early
May Saturday to put an exclamation point to the Tea Party's of April 15th.

Yes, it is routine for like-minded Minnesotan's to demonstrate annually as legislators will sometimes work through the weekend on the State's budget. That was certainly the case this past weekend as Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty helped lead the chants from the lawn of the capitol building. Mr Pawlenty promised that his "veto pen was ready!"

Other noteable speakers included US Rep Michelle Bachmann (R), and local talk-radio host Jason Lewis who was instrumental in the organizational part of this annual event.

We "Right Wing Radicals", (as Janet Napolitano would have it) made the TV news. (see video)

You might remember Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann from this monumental grilling!
