The Texas Tea Party Patriots, using what must be an alternative pricing model, will charge $200 for general admission to its upcoming "modified Lincoln-Douglas style debate" between Newt Gingrich and Herman Cain.

Fancier tickets sold for $500 or $1,000 will offer such goodies as access to the "Nite Cap" party afterwards. So now we're getting a clearer idea of the "modification" here: It's a big old grifter stunt. Hurry up and get your tickets!
