The angry and unhinged Tea Party folks will gather in Nashville for a convention next week, full of piss and vinegar.
Having an unusually loose grip on reality, the TP people can be counted upon to make outlandish claims about almost everything and scream really loudly.
Unsurprisingly, planning for the Nashville convention isn't going well. Some of the True Believers are fighting with other True Believers. Meanwhile, some of the Tea Party Stars are bailing out. Example: Minnesota Rep. Michelle Bachmann, one of the silliest of the GOP extremists.
Sticking with the plan: half-term Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.
