Teary eyed rodeo clown Glenn Beck kicks off his "Restoring America" tour by selling 700 tickets for an 8,000 seat venue.
According to the Asbury Park Press, “A crowd of about 700 people, comprised mostly of Tea Party supporters, gathered at Six Flags Great Adventure on Saturday to help kick off conservative talk-show host Glenn Beck’s “Restoring America” tour. Spectators paid $50 for a ticket or $125 for special VIP privileges to listen to speeches by various conservative and libertarian activists, radio talk-show hosts and musicians in a six-hour event.”Proving that it’s a lot easier to pretend to fill an open area in Washington D.C. than an area you have to sell tickets to fill.
Beck’s problem is that he has asked the same dwindling group of people to open their wallets for him too many times. $50 a ticket? Is he kidding?
