This is the group the Grifter-in-Chief, Sarah Palin, is taking a huge sum from to speak:
In a post on his personal blog, In Media Res, Kevin Smith, an owner of the web design company HearSAY, writes that Tea Party Nation founder Judson Phillips took advantage of his volunteer computer experience in the creation of Tea Party Nation’s web architecture and profited from the enterprise.
Smith writes that his “zeal for the movement” meant he delivered Phillips’ web services at a heavily discounted rate at the expense of his own business. He believed that he was working for an nonprofit effort that would only supply founder Phillips with a little extra income to replace income he was losing while working for the movement instead of practicing law, he writes.
Smith reports being shocked when Phillips filed to create Tea Party Nation as a for-profit corporation. Disgusted with Phillips’ decision to continue taking donations for the for-profit company, Smith ultimately resigned.
I don’t understand. I thought the teabaggers were all about free markets and capitalism? Meanwhile, because Sarah Palin turned down a CPAC speaking role for the cash grab at Tea Party Nation, they had to go find a suitable replacement:
Fox News host Glenn Beck is going to the closing speaker at this year’s CPAC conference, according to the conservative organization’s Twitter feed.
“CPAC is my kind of people,” Beck said on the radio this morning. “CPAC is, I think they’re as angry at the Republicans as I am.”
Orly Taitz was apparently unavailable. The modern conservative movement- an insane clown posse of grifters, flat-earthers, and birthers.
Also, I would be remiss if I did not point out that these are the folks that the jackasses at Reason magazine were pimping at town halls all last summer. Heckuva job, glibertarians!
