Another Shocker from the Right

This story is so sweet that the jokes write themselves.  Our friends among the Tea Party set, who have for some reason claimed a special affiliation with Nevada, are being sued for allegedly skipping out on a very expensive soiree in Las Vegas.

They were even planning on having Sharron Angle do some sort of pre-victory speech at the party before her huge win over Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid! Given that Sharron was literally hiding from media at the time, it might have been an exciting appearance.

Anyhoo, the upshot is that apparently the Tea Party doesn’t pay its bills. This shouldn’t surprise anyone watching their ideological brethren in the House of Representatives, where the Tea Party faithful are striving to destroy the American economy by refusing to pay government bills.

But what makes this story especially sweet is that the resort suing Tea Party Nation for more than $642,000 (apparently Tea Party Nation failed to sell many, or any, tickets to see Sharron and Co.) is Sheldon Adelson’s Venetian. Sheldon, you may recall, has funded various failing right-wing loons and organizations around the country and in Nevada. Perhaps now Mr. Adelson will see the fundamental bankruptcy of the Tea Party crowd and throw his support to the progressives.

  1. A.J. has it dead on. Why people would fall for an organization that wants you down at some exploitable serf level and do it gladly says something troubling about people in this country.

    1) Billionaires
    2) Suckers

  3. Those overachievers! At least we can say they’re the best of the best when it comes to being hypocrites.

  5. Too busy worried about that deficit to fork over the dough for their own party? The only positive thing I get from this . . . is a hope they will bankrupt each other and leave us normal people alone eventually.
