Classic Palin

Her address to the Tea Party Convention will be sealed off from the press, according to this report. Like her campaign in 2008:

The restrictions apparently apply to the much-anticipated speeches by Sarah Palin and Minnesota’s own Michele Bachmann. Organizers say that journalists without passes will not be allowed into the convention at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel. (A Star Tribune request for a pass was denied, the paper’s interest in covering its home-state congresswoman notwithstanding).

There is something deeply creepy about this. But also deeply familiar. Populists who want to speak only to the inner circle? Yep, sounds like Palin. The marination of the far right in its own juices - see Ailes, Roger - intensifies.
