Would you bet over half a million dollars that a few hundred people would be willing to exchange actual currency for the chance to watch defunct hollering person Sharron Angleshare makeup tips at a schmaltzy Las Vegas gambling resort? Are you insane? Would you sign a contract to certify you are that insane? If you answered "yes" to these questions, a very tragic congratulations, you are one of the Tea Party Nation's fiscal responsibility experts now on the hook for $642,144 to said Las Vegas hotel for nixing your Sharron Angle furry sleepover party and failing to pay the contractual cancellation fee. And now they are mysteriously being sued by the hotel!


A comic amount of hubris led organizers to book 1,637 rooms of the hotel, which no one wanted to fill. But they won't really have to pay, will they? "Defaulting is the responsible thing to do" is basically Tea Party motto, haven't they heard that?

From the Las Vegas Review-Journal:

On Monday Venetian Casino Resort, LLC., filed suit against Tea Party Nation Corporation of Franklin, Tenn., alleging the group owes $642,144 for canceling a conservative conclave last year.

The event, which had been scheduled for July 14-18, 2010, was first postponed until October and ultimately canceled.

The Daily Caller reported at the time there was a lack of people willing to pay $399 for a weekend pass or $125 per day to hear speakers such as conservative commentator Laura Ingraham or politician Sharron Angle, who at the time was in the midst of a failed campaign to oust Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Las Vegas.

Clearly they didn't emphasize the "furry pajama sleepover" part of the program enough. [Las Vegas Review-Journal via TNV]

Cripes the News has been awful lately! And so Yr Editrix suggested we find some good, positive news. Especially after we pitched writing a Wonket about this Mother Jones story on how global warming may be killing the whales, even though Donald Trump knows their prince. (Reply: "Nope. FOR SURE NOT THAT.") And so, as a reminder that a gooder world is possible and apropos of nothing at all that definitely didn't set your Editrix off on Twitter, where she has been stewing and bitching most shrillfully about the 2016 election and the 2020 election and any terrible similarities thereof and thereupon and therefore and thereto, we present a collection of videos of Elizabeth Warren yelling at big banks and calling for them to be broken up and their criminal operators to go to jail. Puppies and kittens will only get you so far, after all.
