Oh no — so much for the fun of watching Chris Matthews’ head asplode during the keynote speech:
Word from Nashville on Monday was that the First National Tea Party Convention next month will be closed to the press, other than for a limited number of â€œselectedâ€ journalists. No word on who or how many.
The restrictions apparently apply to the much-anticipated speeches by Sarah Palin and Minnesotaâ€™s own Michele Bachmann.
If the organizers want to make a not-so-subtle point while displaying a hearty sense of humor, the only media outlet they’ll allow in will be C-Span. Heh heh.
