BTW, I attended the 1st Tea Party here last April 15th. Back then, it was about the out-of-control spending. But, they began to lose thier way incorporating other issues I can't support.

Yup, I can see why this would stick in the craw of a fiscal conservative ... and thus, a lot of the original Tea Party enthusiasts.
The "9-12" movement in my area seems to be very grass-roots and rational. They schedule "meet-ups" at individual homes; and discuss candidates; Ayn Rand books; and other pertinent issues. They also stage peaceful demonstrations at local politicians' offices.

I will withhold judgement until I know more. It sounds fishy...but who knows. A news article can certainly put a spin on something so you never know.
You know that somebody is going to try to make money on this though. That is inevitable. Somebody sees an opportunity to make a quick buck and they will try just about anything. Not saying that is what is going on here, but.....
I hope Sarah has better sense than to get used by a profiteer. I hope this is all above board. I guess we'll see.

Sounds like another case of soccer-moms shopping at Saks 5th Ave!
