Here is one tidbit that comes from our alleged political reporters sucking up to the Tea Party. Apparently there is new trouble in teabagger land. From the Arizona Daily Star's political gossip column. Coughlin, Fiesta Bowl lobbyist, doesn't take lying low lying down:
The organizer of an effort to launch a new Arizona Conservative Party says he hopes to collect the 24,000 signatures he needs to make the 2012 ballot.
Hugh Kealer, a tea party member and registered Republican in the Show Low area, predicted he won't have trouble getting the signatures he needs with widespread disenchantment with the two parties.
"The Republican leadership we have in our Legislature can't even pass conservative bills," he said. "People are tired of the Republican Party acting just like the Democrats."
He said the increase in independent voters – which inched past Democratic registration earlier this year – means people are looking for alternatives.
Of course, it's all tilting at windmills if they don't have the candidates. Stay posted.
Oh, you can bet the Daily Star will be all over this Tea Party story like white on rice.
