UPDATED: Memo to media, the Tea Party has collapsed

More bad news for Tea Party star Sarah Palin, who's been having a tough time all year drawing impressive crowds:

“An Evening of Hope with Sarah Palin,” an event featuring the former Alaska Governor, was supposed to be a minor blockbuster in Jacksonville, Florida, next week, but not everything has gone as planned.

Slow ticket sales have forced event organizers to move the function from the 2,936-seat Moran Theatre to the significantly smaller 609-seat Terry Theatre.
