PALIN to be at Madison Teabagger rally this Saturday
Edited on Thu Apr-14-11 12:20 PM by eowyn_of_rohan
Sorry to keep posting about this but this is "hugh"...

Wausau Tea Party director, Meg Ellefson said that Sarah Palin will be speaking at the Madison tea party rally this Saturday

ALSO BREAKING: nancy mistele (Madison rwer) just announced on WISN that SARAH PALIN has been confirmed as the special honored guest at the madison tea party!

Senator Jon Kyl of Arizona will be there too...

From the Dane Co, Wisc GOP site:
Saturday, April 16, 2011 - 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM
Tax Day Tea Party

Americans for Prosperity presents Tax Day Tea Party Madison 2011.

This event will be a Victory Celebration of the 2010 Election Results and a recognition of the people who made it happen (candidates and citizens) as well as a call to action in preparation for the battles we will face in the coming year.

-----------------
Tea Party Counter Rally - It's our house!

We MUST show them that we won't let outside organizations and big businesses drown out the message of the people.
Counter demonstration being planned now.
Let's show 'em how we really feel about Americans for Prosperity.

* Milwaukee Ironworkers Union says...
We can NOT let the teabaggers think we gave up!! Keep momentum on our side. Every teabag source thinks we're done
If you can possibly make it PLEASE do

* FORWARD! Marching Band will be there, so bring your instruments, drums, and singing voices!

Get there early and claim valuable real estate.

9. The Koch Bros are bringing her to draw more baggers.
Edited on Thu Apr-14-11 01:05 PM by eowyn_of_rohan
They're being bussed in from 10 Wisconsin cities but had to cancel the LaCrosse bus due to lack of interest from LaCrosse Tea Party

usual speaking fee. She never does anything without recompensense.

18. It seems Palin is always doing this - an "in your face"
reaction to some event that was a progressive success. So she prances into Madison like a Queen of the Teabaggers. I hope she is met with tens of thousands of protestors.

19. DAMN
my only complaint is that there are too many sign possibilities, and I have to narrow it down! I suppose it could be like hosting the Oscars, and we all could change our outfits (signs) at each commercial break!

24. I hope Ed, Rachel, etc
are all over this tonight. Seriously - I will donate to help the cause if someone will post a link once this gets more organized.

Big stuff!!!

After the President's speech there are alot of democrats that are excited. The GOP is on the ropes, its time to get in there and show the power of the silent majority.

I'll be there in spirit and watching it through DU~

28. link
http://tpmdc.talkingpointsmemo.com/2011/04/palin-headed...

And check out this nugget from the paper's report:

Americans for Prosperity is organizing busses to the event. Last year's gathering featured former Republican Gov. Tommy Thompson and others.

Americans for Prosperity is, of course, a Koch financed group. The Koch name has popped up quite a bit in the Wisconsin protests -- most notably after Walker's 20-minute phone call in late February with blogger Ian Murphy, who was posing as David Koch. During that call, Walker discussed his ideas for tricking the Democrats into coming back by pretending to negotiate, his ambition to bust the public employee unions in the mold of President Reagan firing the air traffic controllers -- an event that Walker said had led to the downfall of the Soviet Union -- and that he had considered (but ruled out) planting troublemakers in the crowds of protesters.

Palin's presence could provide useful measure of activist motivation on each side at this point in the saga. Back in February, a pro-Walker Tea Party rally at the Capitol featured an all-star cast that included Andrew Breitbart and Joe "The Plumber" Wurzelbacher.

However, out of the tens of thousands who showed up that day, only a few thousand were on the pro-Walker side -- with several times more demonstrators on the other.

30. Teabaggers plans for Saturday - "Tell everybody to bring vuvuzelas"
On Saturday, April 16th, tea party patriots from throughout Wisconsin will gather at the state Capitol in Madison for a rally to celebrate past victories and rally for Wisconsins future....

I found this on that "other site"
"Tell everybody to bring vuvuzelas... and blow the horns for 30 seconds at 1:00, then scream; CAN YOU HEAR US NOW

"Americans for Prosperity" (Koch Brothers) sending buses to the following cities hoping to fill them up with tea partiers: Green Bay, Oshkosh, Appleton, Fond du Lac, Kenosha, Racine, Waukesha, Milwaukee (2 pick up locations), Wausau and Eagle River

They had to cancel the LaCrosse but due to lack of interest by the LaCrosse Tea PArty

"Americans for Prosperity" has told people who are driving to Madison to park here:

Remote parking for Tax Day Rally
moved from MATC main parking lot
(Hoffman Street) to
MATC tennis court parking
(Wright Street and Starubel Street)
Madison, WI
Free shuttle from 10 am to 4 pm

Counter protestors are urged to get here early and fill this parking lot]/b]
