Showdown In Searchlight: Tea Party Targets Reid

LAS VEGAS -- Sarah Palin and thousands of tea party activists plan to be in Sen. Harry Reid's hometown Saturday to call for the ouster of Democrats who supported the health care overhaul.

The former Republican vice presidential nominee heads a list of speakers at a noon rally in the former mining town of Searchlight, about 60 miles south of Las Vegas.

A big crowd could help confirm the popularity of the emerging tea party movement.

But a sparse turnout or disruptions in the crowd could lead to questions about the movements' credibility.

The rally takes place after a week in which some Washington lawmakers reported threats and vandalism because of their votes.

Reid, the top Democrat in the Senate, played a key role in passage of the new health care law.

Anonymous, good job, Soros would be proud...lets see, OK, she has no political experience...good, she sways bands to see a false profit..(do you mean Obama), yes, say she sounds like ole Adolph...guys and gals, right out of the playbook, however, remember, Bush lied, the two wars, previous administration spending, WMDs, come on, be good soldiers of Soros! Sorry, but 2010 will be a bad year for ya. Yep, when Mass goes to a republican...did you ever think this rhetoric...was working? You call tea party people crazy and you remember the death to Bush protesters or is a memory beyond a few months unheard of? My point; When did you remember conservatives organizing like this in you life time? Go back to a simpler time....1776, when the government tried to control its people. See Ya!!

    Palin is a product of media sensationalism. She does not have any true political experience, but she is able to sway the bands of starving masses who flock to see this false prophet. History tells of many people such as this. Adolf Hitler comes to mind. The Voice, you are absolutely right.

    Reid is as evil as it gets. he's no-doubt controlled by demonic forces. he sold his soul a long time ago, if he ever had one.....

    For those of you who are blinded by Palin's propoganda, I quote Herr Dr. Paul Joseph Goebbels-“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”
