Tea Party fail
Organizers say some 600 attendees have paid $549 for access to two full days of events, culminating Saturday evening in a keynote speech by former Alaska governor Sarah Palin at a banquet that will reportedly feature a lobster and steak dinner.
600 people. That's it. And Organizers say that's a sell out.
While the convention itself has sold out, tickets to the banquet alone were still on sale late Wednesday for $349. So far, organizers say more than 500 banquet-only tickets have been sold.
So, Palin will be speaking to a room of 1,000+ marks who are all gullible enough and stupid enough to have their passions stirred to spend $350-$1,000 for a weekend of nothing.
That would be her target audience.
