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 “selected” journalists. No word on who or how many.
[...]
The restrictions apparently apply to the much-anticipated speeches by Sarah Palin and Minnesota’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.

One Response to “The Tea Party Revolution Will Not Be Televised”

    Two traditions are contrasted. One is the Old World where the few elite rule the many, and the many are less inclined to do for themselves. The other is the New World, America, where people are more accustomed to doing for themselves without leaning on government. This was seen in the relationship with people and their governments. Each was never separated by more than one day’s horseback ride. The county was the primary behavior-relating monitor, the federal being restricted to doing only what the county and state governments could not do. When county government did not do what was expected, the people rose up and changed office-holders. If county became oppressive, vigilante committees were formed. That tradition today is reflected in the Tea Party Movement against the excesses of the current Federal Government. There are no Tea Parties in the Old World, unless they are violent revolutions.
