Behind The Scenes of Tea Party Express IV

By: Lloyd Marcus

Hi Folks. With all of the worldwide media attention Tea Party Express IV national bus tour is receiving, the important political information is well covered. From time to time, I will share a little inside information about the fascinating people on our TPX team, touching moments and interesting conversations with rally attendees.

Mary Pearson is our TPX staff photographer. I met the always smiling and pleasant Mary four tours ago. Mary has health issues which cause her great pain in her joints, shoulders and knees.

She hobbles around, while on the bus. But, once the bus parks at our next rally, middle age Mary magically becomes a 16 year old in her movements, energy and enthusiasm. A true professional, Mary shoots a ton of spectacular pictures, roaming the rallies documenting every compelling moment.

Once the rally is over and it is time to get back on the bus, on numerous occasions, I’ve heard Mary say, “Ouch” while lifting her leg to get on the bus. The magic and professionalism which gave her strength to ignore the pain is gone until our bus arrives at the next rally.

Polatik is our young Hispanic conservative rapper traveling with us on our bus tour. His two year old daughter is suffering with Leukemia. Mary Pearson purchased a pink jacket for Polatik”s daughter. Polatik has been asking our TPX team/family to autograph it. Before the end of our tour, Polatik plans to have his daughter’s jacket autographed by Sarah Palin.

Polatik is a fine twenty three year old husband and father of two. He is also a youth minister who is passionately committed to turning around the lives of troubled youths. (

I’m on the road traveling with the Tea Party Express IV national bus tour. We held rallies in El Paso, Abilene, Waco and Dallas/Fort Worth Texas. That Texas Pride thing is powerful. It is probably the only state in the union where hotel waffle irons are designed in the shape of the state. A breakfast waffle in the shape of the Lone Star State is a bright and bold way to start your day.

Enjoy Mary Pearson’s wonderful photos documenting the Tea Party Express IV tour, regularly updated: .
