Michele Bachmann to hold own GOP convention after learning she wasn't invited
8/12/2012 7:05 AM Matt Rock
Former GOP presidential candidate and Tea Party leader Michele Bachmann announced this morning that after having been snubbed for a speaking role at the Republican National Convention in late August, the Minnesota Congresswoman will be organizing her own GOP convention, which will also be held in Tampa, Florida around the same dates as the main event.
Speaking at an impromptu press conference in Florida this morning, Bachmann detailed what she called “The Super-Duper Republican National Convention.” Her convention will take place in a hotel convention hall, with full catering by Chick-fil-A and a number of special guest speakers that weren't invited to the actual convention, including Herman Cain, Rick Perry, Sarah Palin, Chuck Norris, Ted Nugent, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Mitt Romney's caveman son Tor, and Ronald Reagan.
“When our Founding Fathers traveled to the Moon to fight valiantly against Canadian socialism in the War on Christmas, they told the people of the universe that they wouldn't stand up for tyranny or oppression, and that's why I'm holding my own Republican National Convention,” Bachmann explained. “Who are these politicians to say who can and can't speak at their convention? As long as I'm an American, unlike Obama, I should get the chance to speak on behalf of myself and the Tea Party. I have a first and second and third amendment right to be at that event. So I'm making my own, and they aren't invited!”
Ron Paul told PTP that he isn't sure which event he'll go to, noting there's no way he could upset Romney and pull off some bizarre 11th hour convention miracle to win the GOP's presidential nomination. However, he points out that Bachmann's location of an event hall has not been coupled yet with a thorough investigation for spiders, snakes, or English muffins, the presence of which would leave him with no choice but to visit the other, larger convention. - Return to Previous Page
