And So Ends The Tea Party Era

SARAH PALIN TO HEADLINE first-ever Tea Party convention.
It'll go on, become partisan, and may even do tremendous good in 2010. But this is the beginning of the end of it as a ground up movement. Let the co-optation begin. Happens everytime there's money to be made.
And so it goes. Just another day in American politics, though unavoidable, I suppose. I think it'll be less fun to watch, now.
