Anti-tax protesters will rally at the Puyallup fairgrounds today, as the Tea Party Express rolls into town. The bus is stopping here as part of a cross-country tour of the United States, which started this week in California and will wind up Nov. 12 in Florida. The ominous sounding “Countdown toe Judgment Day” tour is in anticipation of next year’s election.

The event starts at 6 p.m. and will feature a speech by KVI talk show host Kirby Wilber and music from three bands. Communications Director Levi Russell didn’t have an exact location of where the rally is taking place other than the Puyallup Fair & Events Center, so if anyone knows, please let us know.

Russell said the events have been attracting crowds of 500 so far, mostly in smaller towns.
