Those of you who who enjoy keeping an eye on the teabag "movement," as Green Eagle does, may remember my report about the miserable failure of their national strike a week ago. Now their grand teabag convention, to be headlined headlined by the ever-altruistic Sarah Palin, for a measly $125,000 or so, seems to be in running into trouble. Today, the Republican dream girl, Michelle Bachmann, announced that she is pulling out of her scheduled appearance at the event. What was the last time you saw Michelle Bachmann turn her back on a chance to humiliate herself in public?
It has long been my belief that the teabag movement is nothing but an artificial creation, sustained by corporate money and free promotion on Fox News and the right wing blogs, and made to appear significant only through a perpetual, and vast, exaggeration of the level of participation. Yet as long as the money to promote it is there, the illusion will be maintained, and of course, our mainstream press will fall for it.
