Tea Party and the GOP/Arts Roundup/Wine Riot

Sarah Palin and the Tea Party Express came to Boston Common this week, and several of the state's top Republican leaders did not make it to welcome them.  GOP Gubernatorial hopeful Charlie Baker was in the western part of the state, and conservative darling Senator Scott Brown was attending to business in Washington.  Baker's GOP rival Christy Mihos did make it down to the Common, as did independent candidate, Tim Cahill.  Mihos is working to secure enough support at this weekend's State GOP Convention to actually make it onto the primary ballot, and he says he's confident he'll be able to get the necessary 15 percent.  What effect do you think the Tea Party movement may have in Massachusetts?  Does it help Republican candidates, independents or neither?  Join the conversation.

Also this week, we'll be talking weekend events, with our Arts and Culture roundtable, and discussing the troubled health of BSO Artistic Director James Levine.

And...we preview this weekend's Wine Riot.  Comment here, and tune in Friday at 1.
