Minnesota 6th District Rep. Michele Bachmann will burnish her conservative standing when she appears at the 1st Annual Tea Party Convention in February. The Nashville event also will feature former Alaska Gov. and vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin.
City Pages says Bachmann will give a breakfast speech, while Palin is the keynote speaker at the Saturday evening main event Feb. 6.
549 bucks? They had better have something good for breakfast! Don’t worry, kids, I’m on the case! I’ll find out what the breakfast menu is. (Make your own jokes about teabaggers having a convention at the Gaylord.)
(ChattahBox)—The wacky right-wing lawmaker Michele Bachmann, is scheduled to give a speech at the first National Tea Party Convention, which will take place in Nashville, TN in February. Bachmann is a hero to teapartiers, after she recently staged an anti-health care reform Capitol tea party rally she called, “The Superbowl of Freedom.”
Bachmann will be one of the breakfast speakers at the event, which will feature such discussion panels, as “How to Defeat Liberalism.”
Bachmann’s anti-Obama and anti-health care reform rally on the steps of the Capitol was marked with offensive, racist and anti-Semitic signs.
Bachmann’s rally may have broken House ethics rules. The watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) are calling for an investigation into Bachmann’s possible violation of House rules, by using her taxpayer-funded website to organize a contentious grassroots rally against fellow lawmakers.
