There is a National “Tea Party” Convention coming up in Nashville Feb 4-6. The problem is the Tea Party is not one movement and the Tea Party Convention organizers are not recognized leaders of the movement. So when they plan a $550 per plate dinner it is naturally going to ruffle many feathers of rank and file Tea Party people who see it as nothing more than a co-opting of a grass-roots movement.
I agree. I think Sarah Palin should decline the invitation to be the key note speaker. I think this Convention is going to damage the great success of the Tea Party movement along with everyone involved.
The Tea Party movement should make every effort to not look like they are falling for the Washington “business as usual” mentality.
