DENVER-- The Tea Party Express tour (part three) has rolled into town and is holding a rally at the capitol here. The tour is hitting states where Congressional seats are in play and those include seats held by Colorado Democratic Reps Betsy Markey and John Salazar, both called out after their votes in favor of health care reform by Sarah Palin, who seems lately to be solidifying her place at the top of the Tea Party celebrity heap. There are rumors in the crowd here as there were in the capitol hallways today that Palin might speak to the Denver crowd even though it's not one of the two stops on the tour at which she is scheduled to appear.
A record crowd gathered to thumb their collective noses at the encroaching "nanny state" and listen to the words of Sam Wurzelbacher, aka Joe the Plumber, Saturday at the Independence Institute's annual Alcohol, Tobacco & Firearms Party. Revelers made their way about an hour east of Denver to the Kiowa Creek Sporting Club outside Bennett, where an estimated 225 supporters gathered to shoot clay pigeons, imbibe potent potables and puff on cigars at the Golden-based think tank's annual fundraiser, dubbed “the most politically incorrect event of the year."
