Tea Party In Searchlight, NV: Woodstock Without The LSD

Via Las Vegas Review-Journal:
“Welcome to the real America,” said Norman Halfpenny, retired Marine Corps master gunnery sergeant, as he and other volunteer Tea Party valets greeted hundreds of overnight campers who staked out prime real estate to get a front-row view of today’s “Showdown in Searchlight.” A steady stream of RVs, motor homes, trucks, vans, jeeps and cars of every sort arrived a day early for the red, white and blue, U.S. flag-festooned festival where Republican rock star Sarah Palin will rally conservatives at noon in Sen. Harry Reid’s hometown to call for his and the Democratic Party’s defeat. Up to 10,000 people are expected at the event, where former GOP vice presidential candidate Palin is the big draw. But organizers weren’t sure exactly how many supporters would join the Tea Party Express rally that kicks off a 20-day, 44-city tour to Washington, D.C.
