This is going to be so much fun.
First Sarah Palin says it’s a “hoot” to hear people talking about her teaming up with Glenn Beck for a 2012 presidential campaign. She flirted with such a notion but demurred on a definitive answer. “Glenn Beck, I have great respect for,” she said. “He gets his message across in such a clever way.”
Next day, on his radio show, Glen Beck took umbrage at the word “hoot.” He’s a professional. He dismissed a Palin-Beck ticket but said a Beck-Palin ticket might work. But then he belittled her saying, Palin would always be "yapping," like they were "in the kitchen." He knows a woman’s place. Beck admonished Palin not to use “hoot” when mentioning his name. Impossible.
Next day, the Tea Baggers announce their first national convention with featured speakers: Sarah Palin and Minnesota’s highest elected nut U.S. Rep. Michelle Bachmann. Two hoots.
It’s official: “Tea Party Nation is pleased to announce the First National Tea Party Convention.” Hurry February. If initial reports are accurate, and if the plans hold together, the first-ever such meet-and-greet will be held at Opryland. Tickets: $560 per.
Now that’s a hoot. Bona fide.
