Tea Party No-Go: Priced-for-rich national convention cancelled. Truce or time for Armey to get the flock back in line?

Halfway into last week came reports that the tea party movement's national convention, Tea Party Nation, was moving too few tickets and would be cancelled. 

Originally scheduled to open in Las Vegas on October 14, “Ticket sales were simply not sufficient to support the convention,” according to organizer Judson Phillips

Phillips attributed the inability of convention-goers to afford the $399 ticket cost to the Obama economy, of course.
