Correction: Fixed erroneous mention of Matthew Vadum.
SEARCHLIGHT, NV. The event was huge. Stacy phoned in a bit of a report, before the Battery Gods frowned and his phone passed out.
Andrew Breitbart, Andrew Marcus, Andrea Shea King, Victoria Jackson, Chris Cassone and
Matthew Vadum were in attendance.
Photos and video of Sarah Palin to follow. Hit the tip jar, so that Stacy can upgrade his hardware to something more reliable.
Update, via email from TeaPartyExpress.org:
