Palin / Bachman To Headline National Tea Party Event

Hmm. CNN claims to have confirmed Sarah Palin’s role as keynote for a Nashville-based Tea Party event in February. The conference is: being dubbed the first National Tea Party event. Formally speaking, perhaps. Though I suspect many who went to Washington’s protest: might disagree. But this is being called a convention.

Very interesting as they are both Republicans and well received by the Tea Party crowd. I’m unclear of some of the different Tea Party organizations and how that plays into all this. It should be quite an event no matter what. But does this take the Tea Party movement out of the unaligned column? Technically, Palin has said she would back candidates based upon what they believe, not party. I don’t believe Bachman has made the same claim. But Sarah Palin will be the lead figure, no doubt about that.

(CNN) — Sarah Palin will be the main attraction at what’s being billed as the “First National Tea Party Convention.”

Tea Party Nation announced Wednesday that last year’s Republican vice presidential candidate will serve as keynote speaker for the conference, scheduled to take place in Nashville, Tennessee February 4-6. A representative for Palin has confirmed the former Alaska governor’s speaking role at the gathering.

The group also announced that Rep. Michele Bachmann will be speaking at the gathering as well. The Minnesota Republican has become a hero among many in the conservative movement. A representative for Bachmann confirms her speaking role.
