The Tank Tancredo on Why go to a Tea Party convention

The Washington Independent’s Dave Wiegel, chronicler of all things Tea Party, is (where else?) in Nashville for the first annual National Tea Party Convention. He reports that attendees are beginning to post videos from the event, including this gem from Tom “The Tank” Tancredo. Why is he there? Because they paid to get him there!

Former Congressman Tancredo explains why he came to speak on opening night.

Question: You came to the Tea Party Convention because they asked you?

Answer: Well, sure! I didn’t have $500 for a ticket! Only way I could get in this room was to be a speaker!
