"National Tea Party Convention falls apart: Bachmann and Blackburn announce they are pulling out."
Oh no! There's no hope for the republic now... Guess we're just going to have to learn to like Nazi socialism.
Turns out that tickets to the first National Tea Party Convention are a little too pricey for your average frootloop to afford, so they're starting to get a little flack from the base for trying to cash in on the movement. Seriously though, do these people expect them to just give tickets away? That'd be communism or something. For the record guys, if you want to deal with free market capitalists, you'd better bring a lot of scratch, because there isn't enough money in the world to keep these people happy.
Anyway, feeling which way the populist wind blows, wingnut icons Reps. Shelly Bachmann and Marsha Blackburn are pulling out. Your are commies ladies! J'accuse!
At least Sarah Palin knows where real constitutional principles lie. She's still going to collect her $100,000 speaking fee.
Jefferson would be so proud... (Think Progress)
