There does seem something very circular about CNN, CBS and NY Times polling showing an increase in negative views of the Tea Party, considering that such negative views are driven by biased CNN, CBS and NY Times reporting blaming the Tea Party movement for the S&P downgrade of the U.S. credit rating and a host of...

This is the latest in a series on the use of the race card for political gain:

Great reaction to yesterday’s Wisconsin recall elections, from blogger Lexington Green at Chicago Boyz (via Instapundit).  Read the whole thing.  Leaves me with that “wish I’d said that” feeling:

The people have spoken.  Again.
Get used to it.
Next: More rollback.
Here, there and everywhere.
Today Madison, tomorrow DC.
Today Wisconsin, tomorrow America.

Matt Lewis at The Daily Caller argues that taking a compromise deal allowed Republicans to avoid blame for the S&P downgrade (although David Axelrod and John Kerry are claiming otherwise) and any other negative consequences:

In the few days since the debt ceiling was raised, the Dow has dropped more  than 500 points and...

It seems like only yesterday, but it was February 2009, as the first trillion dollar Stimulus plan was pending.

It could have been yesterday.

The debt ceiling fight and “deal” were emotional, and many of you have been left feeling let down or betrayed.  Relations among people who agree on the goal but not the strategy have been strained.

But keep things in perspective.

That’s Rick Perry’s position on the NY same-sex marriage law:

Perry, who is considering running for president, at a forum in Colorado on Friday called himself an “unapologetic social conservative” and said he opposes gay marriage — but that he’s also a firm believer in the 10th Amendment, the Associated Press reported.

Senator Jim DeMint is circulating this video from the Club for Growth showing twenty (!) Senate Democrats pledging their support for a Balanced Budget Amendment. As a little bit of context, H.R. 2560 did pass with support from five House Democrats last night, so it’s possible that, if House Republicans hold...

As you know, I’m visiting here.  And one thing I’ve noticed is that there are quite a few homeless people.

Why are the people of San Francisco so heartless?  They must all be Tea Party supporters.

Why don’t the politicians here care about the poor?  They must be Republicans.

How can citizens just walk by without helping? ...

Democrat Kathy Hochul won NY-26, a Republican District, in a special election yesterday, with 48 % of the vote.  Jane Corwin, the Republican received 42% and phony Tea Party candidate Jack Davis 9%.  These percentages may change as there are several thousand absentee ballots, but the result is not in doubt.

Jack Davis in NY-26 is described as a “Tea Party” candidate.  I have called that a false flag.

Here’s a good explanation of how Jack did it:

After three straight losses as a Democrat, Davis courted the right — though he’s provided no roadmap to explain his shift.
