Sharron Angle heading to next National Tea Party Convention

The elusive (although not to conservatives) GOP U.S. Senate nominee in Nevada will speak at the next National Tea Party Convention in Las Vegas, a larger (although Sarah Palin-less) sequel to the Nashville convention that represented a sort of coming-out for the movement.

Angle will join a lineup heavier, so far, on pundits than on politicians. Radio host Laura Ingraham is speaking, as is former CNN host Lou Dobbs, and as is Joseph Farah of WorldNetDaily. In Nashville, of course, Farah gave a meandering speech that spent a lot of time discussing theories about Barack Obama's birthplace, then got into an argument with fellow speaker Andrew Breitbart about the relative merits of bringing that up. No hard feelings, though -- Breitbart, too, is scheduled to appear in Vegas.
