Hi Folks, Lloyd here.
Day two of Tea Party Express tour III. Yesterday, we launched in Searchlight NV, Harry Reid’s town. Sarah Palin was awesome as usual. Even though I had just performed and was still standing at the foot of the stage, I only got to chat a bit with Todd, Sarah’s husband. Great guy! The Secret Service and the crowds, made it almost impossible for me to get to Sarah. Still, I was able to make eye contact and a brief handshake with Sarah. The people absolutely LOVE HER.
Our Searchlight kick off rally was a wonderful madhouse of activity. The location was a dust bowl: not the best venue for such an event. And yet, spirits were high and the atmosphere was electric.
I chatted with Joe the Plumber. Joe complimented me for calling myself an unhyphenated American. Joe said, “I love it every time I hear you say that”. Joe and I have done several rallies together. Joe also pushes for us all to simply be Americans.
Actress/comedian Victoria Jackson of Saturday Night Live fame is also on the tour. What a great sincere and honest conservative woman. Victoria spoke and sang her hilarious songs while playing the ukulele. The audience loved her. She wrote a new funny song while we were on the bus. She and I rehearsed it a bit and performed it on stage in front of thousands. It was a hit.
We did two rallies yesterday. We arrived at our hotel around 11am dead tired. Early call this morning to get on the three buses. We are headed to Phoenix. Talk to you later.
