Miller, Luna Thrill Tea Party Gathering

Also: Tea Party supporters take over Greyhound Raceway/Tania Dall, KXLY

Joe Miller, pictured, believes the Tea Party's cup is still full and it won't be emptied anytime soon. The former U.S. Senate Republican candidate from Alaska and veteran spoke during the third annual Tax Day Rally sponsored by the Tea Party Patriots of North Idaho before roughly 400 people on Thursday night at the Greyhound Park and Event Center. He said some believe the movement is fading and will continue to do so if the economy or political climate improve, but the rally's turnout and a spirit to return to our roots dictate otherwise. "We are not controllable," Miller said. "We have one allegiance and that's to the Constitution. That is not politics as usual. But if that's extreme, then so be it." Miller said the Tea Party is in the business of holding people accountable/Brian Walker, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.
