On Mar. 30, 2010 at the Reagan Library in Simi Valley, California, Fox News’ Sean Hannity publicly admitted that he thinks the Tea Party movement is comprised of anti-government extremists, or as he said, “Tim McVeigh wannabes.” “I think we won the debate,” Hannity said. “When you think of the vast majorities that they have… Read more »

The Tea Partiers will fail because for them to succeed we would need to shred the US Constitution and start over. That would require a revolution, and that’s not going to happen. You just have to examine what they stand for. They claim to be strict constitutionalists, but they can’t stop screaming that what Democrats… Read more »
I don’t know what’s scarier, Victoria Jackson screeching into a microphone, Joe the Plumber bragging about his big truck and guns, Andrew Breitbart claiming liberals “firebombed” a church or that there are people out there that watch Glenn Beck every day. Here’s a video montage of Tea Party rallies across the country this week.
Where does the GOP go from here? Now that the party has been taken over by conspiracy nuts, racists and other loons, where does that leave them? Over the weekend a “Christian militia” was taken out by the FBI over its plot to murder a police officer and then attack the funeral procession with IEDs…. Read more »
Despite what right-wing fringers like Bill Kristol and Glenn Beck say, the White House hasn’t raised taxes and they even show you have to take advantage of new tax cuts. From the White House: “Did you know that there are more than a dozen Recovery Act tax cuts working families can take advantage of this… Read more »
I hate cable news. At least 99 percent of all cable news is a bag of throwaway garbage that serves no purpose other than to confuse, distract, misinform and stink up the room. The same can be said about talk radio. It’s not that broadcasting can’t be used to inform and educate the populous, sometimes… Read more »
The consensus among the talking heads, political wonks, hacks and bloviators is that Democrats will lose big in November’s elections. The logic is that the party in the White House always gets their ass handed to them in the first election after the president takes office. That’s what happened in 1994 after Clinton beat Bush… Read more »
Barack Obama has been talking about health care reform since 2007. Back then he talked about single-payer and universal health care – and you elected Obama with a landslide victory. While you didn’t get universal health care or single-payer – you did get health care reform.
A few days ago some Tea partiers taunted a man with Parkinson’s disease. Now today they called civil rights activist Rep. John Lewis a “nigger” and Rep. Barney Frank a “faggot.” It’s not really shocking considering that one of the Tea party leaders, Mark Williams, calls people “faggots” and “retards” on his blog.
Politico broke a scary story today. They’ve un-earthed a PowerPoint slideshow detailing the GOP strategy to use fear and mockery to stop Obama’s “socialist” agenda.
The Republican National Committee plans to raise money this election cycle through an aggressive campaign capitalizing on “fear” of President Barack Obama and a promise to “save the country from trending toward socialism.”
You can tell a lot about a movement by its leaders. One of the Tea Party leaders is Mark Williams. On his blog he refers to people as “faggots” and “retards.” He even called President Obama as a “racist-in-chief.”
The mainstream media often refers to the Tea Party spectacle as a “movement.” It isn’t. A CBS News poll shows that Tea Party “members” are actually pretty dumb. Tea Party people believe that President Obama has already raised taxes – he hasn’t. One-third of Tea Party people think Obama favors the poor – that’s code… Read more »
Here is the complete transcript from the domestic terrorist that on Feb. 18, 2010 burned his home to the ground and bombed the IRS building by crashing a plane into it – allegedly.
Some Tea Party people and politicians are claiming Joe Stack is a hero. But it’s worth noting that that he ends his manifesto with a shout out to communism and appears to support health care reform – not things the Tea Party people espouse.
Sarah Palin is fuming mad. The Fox cartoon show “Family Guy” made a crack at her and she’s told her daughter Bristol to take it public and make it personal. According to Palin’s Facebook page, watching Sunday’s “Family Guy” episode “felt like another kick in the gut.” Who knew she was a fan? Evidently, her… Read more »
New York Times columnist Frank Rich wrote that Sarah Palin may just be the smartest politician in America today.
Well, he didn’t say that exactly. What he did say was that while liberals, including White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs, were yucking it up over Palin’s hand-scrawled Tea Party cheat sheet, she was building her base.
Fox News asks “What do you think Tea Party movement is all about?”
Here’s the complete video of Sarah Palin’s speech at the Tea Party Convention on Feb. 6, 2010. Palin is the de facto leader of the Tea Party movement. The speech sounds like she’s planning for a presidential run in 2012.
