Why is that Tea Party Convention, the one Palin is expected to speak at, being held the day before the Super Bowl? It doesn't seem like particularly good planning. Potential convention attendees are almost surely mega Super Bowl fans, and who is going to fly into Nashville on a Saturday and then be able to relax on Sunday for the big game?
They should have scheduled it the day before the Oscars.
Think of it as a litmus test. If you care more about the Super Bowl than the future of America, you probably don't belong at the Tea Party Convention.
It looks like a "Let's cash in" money making scam all the way. That suggests, if true, that raising $ ASAP is what drove this. Look at how many have dropped out or complained about its fees and organization. And I hear the prime organizer has cash troubles.
There's suppose to be something wrong with that?
Remember the Tea Party movement isn't a new political party -- it is intended to help fiscal conservatives take over the Republican party, and to a lessor extent, the Democratic party.
So it makes perfect sense to focus on fund-raising. They want to define a platform to support, then raise money to support candidates who support that platform. Note that this is all taking place in the primary. Come the general election, the national GOP and Democratic parties will finance the Tea Party candidates' campaigns.
Seems like good political sense to me.
...it is intended to help fiscal conservatives take over the Republican party...
LOL! As if the average Tea Partier has any understanding of fiscal or budgetary problems whatsoever.
Merely understanding that there is a problem gives them the edge over the Democrats.

Quiddity, you attract the stupidest wingnut trolls on the internet.
Stupid trolls don't catch fish, DPT.
