Conservative media darling? Eh, not so much.

Apparently, the Canadian market is a tough one for illiterate quitters:

Tickets are still available to hear a potential American presidential candidate in Hamilton.

Despite one organizer's prediction in December that the April 15 visit of Sarah Palin to Hamilton would be sold out within two weeks, good seats remain available.

And here's the punchline:

It also comes after the darling of the American conservative movement gave the keynote speech at the weekend conference of the grassroots Tea Party Convention in Nashville, Tenn.

"Darling of the American conservative movement?" I don't think so:

'Warning: Tea Party In Danger': Leader Slams Palin As 'Wolf In Sheep's Clothing'

A prominent Tea Party leader from Texas is warning that the movement "is becoming nothing more than a wholly owned subsidiary of the Republican Party," and slamming Sarah Palin as representing "a growing insider's attack to the heart of the Tea Party."

Dale Robertson, the founder of, is just the latest Tea Partier to express concern that the movement is being hijacked by the GOP.

In a lengthy statement -- entitled "Warning: Tea Party In Danger" -- posted yesterday on the homepage, Robertson instructs his felllow Tea Partiers to "[b]e alert to turncoats and deceivers being herded into the Tea Party by usurpers from the weakened Republican Party for the sole purpose of capturing our populist movement."

Huh. Finally waking up to the fact that you're being played for suckers by a worthless, uneducated opportunist and perpetual failure? I guess it just takes some people longer than others.

If she's a wolf in sheep's clothing, she'd best watch her back. It seems likely someone'll hunt her from a helicopter.
