Leslie Eastman: Tea Partiers don't need any steenkin' leaders.

Press attention focused on Sarah Palin's speech, which was well-received by the crowd. But the attendees I met weren't looking to her for direction. They were hoping she would move in theirs. Right now, the tea party isn't looking for leaders so much as leaders are looking to align themselves with the tea party.


UPDATE:
Michael Reagan: Ronald Reagan would applaud the Tea Party movement. Is there any doubt he would? Reagan would have been a Tea Partier in his younger days.
