The Santa Fe Tea Party

Former Gov. Gary Johnson
It's too bad that the word "maverick" became overused and virtually meaningless during the last presidential campaign. The word could apply to a couple of very different New Mexico politicians who appeared at the Santa Fe Tea Party Wednesday -- former Gov. Gary Johnson and former state Sen. Jon Grubesic.


Former State Sen. John Grubesic
Whatever you think about the politics of these two -- and the conservative crowd on the Plaza seemed to love Johnson and hate Grubesic (see the advance text for his speech HERE ) -- one thing you can't call either is "run-of-the-mill."

My story on the anti-tax rally is HERE.

  1. What I think the tea party folks should have done was conducted a vote among themselves to select those govt programs they'd like to get rid of and those they'd like to keep. I'm betting it would become very selective and self-serving.
