Tea Party Site Confusion

mouseI never liked the Tea Party. I'm talking about the now-defunct band from Windsor, of course, not that silly political movement in the States.

The Cancon band Tea Party owns TeaParty.com, and Business Week says that could make them rich.

There’s no hotter name in politics right now than the Tea Party. But anyone seized with a desire for smaller government who visits teaparty.com won’t find angry activists in tricorn hats spouting Thomas Jefferson. Instead, they’ll land on the website of a Canadian rock band of the same name that pioneered a style of Middle Eastern fusion known as “Moroccan roll” and broke up six years ago. This causes endless confusion for the millions of people who Google “Tea Party” each month. It’s no picnic for the band members, either. “So much damage has been done to our name by the political movement that we’re considering selling,” says Stuart Chatwood, The Tea Party’s bassist.

The article says TeaParty.com could sell for over $1 million. They've bought low, I say it's time to sell high. I'm sure they can pick up TeaPartyMusic.com for a great deal less.

On that note, the bidding for TorontoMike.com starts at $500. Do I hear $600?

Please. They're considering selling because they're out of money...not because of perceived "damage" to their name. Technically, they don't exist anymore so how can they be damaged???

Mississauga Phil

I ran into their asshole singer at Flaces in mississauga...he's sitting in the front booth by the door, I walked up and just said "Hey man you're jeff martin" and he started carrying on like a little bitch "can't I have a night out...." I'm not the only missisauga boy who had that experience, apparently he spent a lot of time there....and was always a tool
