    Get's get something straight. This might have been billed as a Tea Party convention, but what it really was was some people looking to make money off the Tea Party movement. Real Teabaggers were not present.

    I'm still waiting for the evidence that Tancredo is a racist. Being against illegal immigration is not racist.

    Reading the article, and some of this stuff is hilarious:

    While initially restricting access to the convention to a select number of news organizations, like Fox News, the Wall Street Journal and World Net Daily, organizers announced this week that Palin's speech would be aired on cable and the Internet, allowing a broader audience to hear the former governor's address.
    When you are afraid of allowing the media cover your event, you have problems. When one of your chosen media companies is WND, you have lots of problems.

    Once again, that is not a literacy test.

    People, if you are going to poke fun at someone's intelligence at least understand the word you are claiming describes the person.

    Well, I deleted the post because sometimes the argument isn't worth it. But reading and writing isn't the only type of literacy out there. Civics is the type of literacy that would be tested, and so far I don't see any evidence she knows basic info and plenty of evidence that she doesn't. Heck, even Beck called her out.

    That is NOT literacy!

    literacy
    n
    1. the ability to read and write
    2. the ability to use language proficiently


    I'm not defending her inability to answer that question but you've already falsely labeled Tancredo a racist so lets stop the false labels and stick to what we know to be true.

    Sure.

    Last year, Tancredo addressed the neo-Confererate White Nationalist group, League of the South.

    Also last year, Tancredo addressed the White Nationalist group, Youth for Western Civilization.

    Now compare Tancredo to Ron Paul, who was also supported by White Nationalists. Paul made an effort to distance himself from the crazies. Tancredo embraced the crazies.

    Thanks for proving my point.

    Literacy by itself is the ability to read and write. You can classify it to a specific area of study as they did historical literacy.

    But you did not do that and neither did hazlnut.

    Again, know what the definition of a word is and how to use it before you use it incorrectly.
