The full agenda for the Sept. 12 “Tea Party” march on Washington is up at the event’s Website. Co-sponsored by FreedomWorks and a constellation of conservative and libertarian groups, the event is heavy on local and D.C. organizers and light on Republican politicians. “No one who supported TARP will be on that stage,” said Brendan Steinhauser of FreedomWorks on a morning conference call. Steinhauser and other organizers expected “tens of thousands” of attendees, rolling into town for an agenda that begins with some small events and training sessions on Thursday and Friday.

The members of Congress who are slated to speak: Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.), Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.), Rep. Tom Price (R-Ga.), Rep. Mike Pence (R-Ind.). Rep. Phil Gingrey (R-Ga.) is speaking at a preceding event on health care.

Some of the more famous names on the stage that day:

  • Betsy McCaughey, the health care think-tanker who helped sink the 1993-1994 reforms and has been hitting the TV circuit to do the same this year.

  • Dick Armey of FreedomWorks.

  • Stephen Baldwin, the actor turned conservative activist.

  • Lloyd Marcus, the conservative African-American singer who’s been headlining the Tea Party Express tour with songs that must be heard to be believed.

FreedomWorks spokespeople said that there would be no editing of anyone’s speeches, but added that they’d become aware of “Lyndon LaRouche types” and other activists with “uninvited messages” who were going to show up to share the spotlight. “We’ve told the park police to look out for them.”
