Above is Michael Reagan, step son of Ronald Reagan. He told the crowd about getting $1 a week for allowance as a boy, and asking his father for an increase in allowance -- he got a 30-minute explanation from Ronald Reagan about what happens to a family when the government takes too much from families. I'm sure he has told that story hundreds of times but the crowd loved it.
Below is AlfonZo Rachel (Macho Sauce), who has become an Internet celebrity for a bunch of entertaining YouTube clips he has produced over the past few months. Click here for his MySpace page. Click here for his YouTube Channel. Click here for his web site. He spoke off-the-cuff and got some good laughs from the crowd.
Below is John Ratzenberger -- "Cliff" from Cheers. He gave a heartfelt speech about falling in love with the US when he was a young man.
UPDATE #2: The Highway patrol says the crowd peaked at "a little more than 5,000," according to this Bee account.
UPDATE #3: Gray Family Films put together a nice documentary of the Tea Party here.
