Erick Erickson (whom, full disclosure, I’d asked about the story earlier today) posts a scorching attack on next month’s Tea Party Convention in Nashville, which has been attracting some flack for its high cost (minimum ticket price, $349) and rumors of huge speaker fees. Comparing the event to a Nigerian scam email, Erickson frets that “the tea party movement has largely descended into ego and quest for purpose for individuals at the expense of what the tea party movement started out to be.” And he says Sarah Palin is making a mistake by giving a speech that cost organizers a rumored $100,000.

Sarah Palin is certainly giving the National Tea Party Convention legitimacy. But at what cost? I am fearful this thing will blow up and harm her. I am more fearful that a bunch of well meaning people from across the nation are going to show up, expect more, and then grow disaffected or burn out when the deliverables they expect do not come in.

I hope I am wrong about all of this. I could be. But something tells me I am right. And because no one else will say it, I will — I think Sarah Palin got some bad advice and probably should have done more due diligence.
