"Grassroots" Tea Party charges $175 for admission

The BTPers have managed to outdo their stupid selves, haven't they?

Amidst the ruins of this year's Tea Party self-parodies, right-wing hate website Free Republic is now sponsoring a national Tea Party "convention" scheduled for September.

This event will be held at the Sheraton in Arlington, Virginia - which ain't exactly a budget hotel. Organizers are charging each attendee $175 just for admission. And they're encouraging folks to also lodge at the expensive Sheraton.

Doesn't sound too "grassroots", does it?

This after they went through all that trouble denying (and occasionally admitting) that they stayed at the very expensive Westin in Cincinnati.

Nothing highlights the LOSEianne crew's mantra of simultaneous persecution and privilege quite like being able to pay $175 just to get into a stupid protest and then crying about how hard we big, mean libs have made life.
