    Not sure why this got left off…

    The February 2010 Tea Party Nation convention in Memphis featured Sarah Palin, but drew cries of profiteering.

    Except that this was held in Nashville, not Memphis, which is also a big blue island in the red sea of Tennessee.

    Another example: Starting in an austere room where they are made to sit quietly, symbolizing Europe, the children will pass through an obstacle course to arrive at a brightly decorated party room (the New World).

    Red-white-and-blue confetti will be thrown. But afterward the kids will have to clean up the confetti, learning that with freedom comes responsibility.

    I think the lesson I would take away from this would be that sometimes people will promise you a great time, end up making a horrible fucking mess that no one ever asked for or desired, and expect anyone except themselves to clean up said mess. I leave it as an exercise to the reader to figure out ideologically into what boxes each group falls…
