Tea Party cancels autumn KCK rally for lack of participation

July 13, 2011


— Citing a lack of participation, organizers of a tea party rally and convention planned for this fall at The Woodlands racetrack in Kansas City, Kan., have canceled the event.

Organizers of the Freedom Jamboree said Tuesday that not enough tea party organizations would commit to the event, which was scheduled for late September and early October.

One of the organizers, William Temple, told The Kansas City Star that tea partiers weren't prepared to spend the money to attend the event.

The event was expected to attract Rep. Michele Bachmann and former Sen. Rick Santorum, both Republican presidential candidates.

I think this is pretty funny. Sounds like the rabid "tea party" is already falling apart. Good riddance. Take Phred with you.

Thank spaghetti monster that fad has broken up. Maybe now we can split some of the more libertarian thinkers off into a political spoiler and disrupt the process until the liars are purged.

oh no, they weren't allowed to bring their trailers (homes) to the park. I heard they couldn't get that dimwit blonde lady from Arkansas who said "I waaant muh countree baaack" to speak there. Maybe Terry Lois Gregory can go and lecture on lock and load and what the constitution is about (HEHE!!!).
