BOSTON -- The tea party movement is back in the city where its revolutionary spirit was born.

Speaker after speaker is celebrating the election of Sen. Scott Brown, a Republican who staged an upset in January by winning the seat held by liberal icon Edward Kennedy. Brown isn't attending, but one speaker says he's happy the senator is in Washington doing the job for which he was elected.

Sarah Palin is the headliner at the rally. It's the last rally before activists' cross-country tour culminates in Washington on Tax Day. More than 3,000 assembled in the early morning sunshine on Boston Common, just across town from Boston Harbor, where the original Tea Party occurred in 1773. Colonists then were upset about British taxation without government representation.
