In attendance were numerous Wisconsin GOP candidates and officeholders such as Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen, Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner, Scott Walker, U.S. Senate candidates Terrence Wall and David Westlake, Supreme Court Justices Michael Gableman and David Prosser in addition to national speakers like anti-American Grover Norquist, “Joe the Plumber,” and Michael Reagan, the son of former President Ronald Reagan. Congressman Paul Ryan appeared in a videotaped message.
As noted at One Wisconsin Now,apparently some editing gremlins at both the Wisconsin State Journal and the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel edited the word “zealot” out from a description of Grover Norquist in Saturday’s Associated Press story and replaced it with anti-tax "activist" and "advocate."One of the bagger's highlights came from Tim Nerenz, a Libertarian candidate for Congress when he said, “We are not the party of no, we are the party of hell no."
