Weather to challenge Jason Lewis Tax Cut Coalition

"These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman." —Thomas Paine

According to Jason Lewis, 100.3 KTLK-FM radio host and driving force of the annual tax cut rallies at the State Capitol, tomorrow conservatives will face a significant test of their resolve and dedication to their core beliefs:

The weather.

It won't be 70 degrees and sunny tomorrow, but it isn't looking like we'll be getting an old-fashioned state high school tournament blizzard either.

Besides the speeches, tomorrow's rally is shaping up into the place to be for independent, movement conservatives. I will be joining my colleagues from True North in distributing business cards with our URL. Conservative organizations will have a presence to network and share information. And a lot of conservative bloggers, politicos, BPOU leaders, and other riff-raff you've only read about will be milling around for some face time with people like you.

Conservatives are generally too busy earning a living, raising kids, taking care of their homes, and volunteering in the community to go to rallies, so allow me to explain: a huge crowd tomorrow in spite of the weather will say a lot about the conservative movement in this state. A small crowd tomorrow will also say a lot, just not the message we might want to send.
