Great, condensed (78 seconds) video of Sarah Palin's take on the Tucson shootings: Shorter Sarah Palin

Required viewing for all Palinistas everywhere!

The will to stand up against

The will to stand up against hate groups is alive and well in the United States, writes CNN. The city of Tucson, Ariz., in which the horrific Safeway shooting at the hands of Jared Lee Loughner occurred, won't allow Fred Phelps and his Westboro Baptist Church to come near the mourners of the dead to harangue all of them with hate speech. I found this here: Tucson angels will block the way of Westboro Baptists. The hate can be brushed aside by angels' wings - literally. No matter how large of a payday loan the Westboro Baptist Church takes out, they won’t be able to buy their way into the funeral.

Wow...Socialism now more popular in US than Tea Party

Americans have been watching the Teabaggers for almost two years now, and as it turns out, unbridled, spittle-producing rage isn’t very popular.

Americans disliking Tea Party rose to a record 52%
Americans liking the Tea Party fell to 35%

By contrast, Americans approving of socialism was 36%

The poll internals are even more dire for the Teahadists:
In the past 4 months, people who "strongly dislike" the Tea Party rose from 21% to 31%, while people who "strongly like" the Tea Party fell from 18% to 16%.

Tea Party support plummets to 17%

Tea Party support appears to be plummetting from just a few months ago.

Tea Party support now at 17%

It would seem that many Americans have now realized that these new "Tea Party" elected officials aren't really interested in reducing the size of government, they just want to control women and keep them from having abortions.

The usual suspects will be around in a little while to disprove the Pew Research poll by offering up a no-name blog rebuttal.

Sonnet upon a TEA

Once when an unusual person was elected,
Excitement, fear sounded through the land
Some fearful that they were not protected.
They called meetings, and called in a band.

Using the Bible, music, freedom, and, tax,
They spoke loudly with motorcycle parades,
Flags waved, there were yells from packs.
Clear now that they no longer needed charades.

Bravely moving out their own from the vote run,
Substituting another who hated the tax and spend.
Once there in small numbers with a just crumb,
In no way could they make the laws greatly bend.

Two years it has been and TEAS have made millions,
Writing their books, making speeches to trillions!

You really think this is about an "unusual" Obama? The fact that he is a big government, redistributive, big spending socialist IS the PROBLEM. http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2011/feb/14/debt-now-equals-total-us... I submit he hid his true agenda from the voters in 2008, correction coming 2012. This guy is pretty good http://www.hermancain.com/ -GP

"unusual" Obama?

"Hid his true agenda from the voters in 2008"?

This has been the Republican meme from day one, they've been crooning "oooh, the nasty negro misled you, come back to Mama Republican party"....

They can't face the reality that virtually every segment of American society, with the noticeable single exception of grumpy white males over 50 with an overdeveloped sense of entitlement, went for President Obama in 2008.

You guys like to bray about the 2010 election results, but I caution you to look at the voting demographics....the usual bitter white retirees turned out en masse, while a good number of Americans stayed home. This resulted in an uptick in Teahadists.

Come 2012, when the numbers of voters going to the polls vastly increases, we'll see President Obama returning for a second term and the Tea Party getting a well deserved boot in their collective EDITED AND WARNED

Good luck with your buddy Herman Cain. Grubby Herman placed something like third in the Republican primary for US Senator a while back, and you've deluded yourself into thinking that this EDITED AND WARNED can be president?

GP & Herman

Some folks just can't get it right. Herman finished 2d to Isakson in the Rep primary in 2004. I tried to convince him to run for LtGov next time around and if he had done that, blv he would have beat Cagle handily and been Gov after that. However, I don't blv he has either sufficient name recognition or adequate funds to mount the kind of campaign needed to win the nomination. I wish it wasn't so. Perhaps he will be a VP choice.

Tea Party

For some reason the Tea Party (Taxed Enough Already) scares the crap out of the big spending Repugnicons/Rhinos and Dimocraps, as well it should. Polls/Trolls, the only poll that matters is the one taken at the polls in the primary elections. The 2010 election sent an UNDENIABLE message, Loud and Clear to get our fiscal house in order and it seems that message is being ignored, I suspect the 2012 election will be even louder. Politicians ignore the TP at their own peril. http://www.theblaze.com/stories/tea-party-to-gop-find-jesus-stop-spendin... -GP

Again, quite a huge reach on the Tea Party, CPB

I really don't care much about the TP, but the article you cite references all the major disagreements on policy between the TP and Repubs as this:

Environment
Education
Unemployment
Social Security

I'm missing the abortion angle, or any religious angle for that matter, especially since the whole formation of the TP movement seemed to be "fiscally conservative, small government, screw Washington DC, don't care about social issues."

While the Repubs try to cobble together some joke of a spending reduction platform that can't get to a measly 100bil, Rand Paul of TP fame has already thrown down the gauntlet with his plans at 5x that reduction. I didn't see anything about abortion in it either.

One thing that distinguishes the TP from the Repubs is that they aren't hesitant to cut military spending while every mainstream Repub wants that off the table immediately. They also go to conventions like CPAC who fundies-who-abortion-is-their-own-only-issue like Huckabee thinks are "too libertarian."

Maybe you think the whole TP thingie is a subterfuge to really elect a bunch of hopeless fundies without a clue that want to establish a theocracy, but I don't see it yet and see no evidence of it. The far-right fundies who always back the Repubs are noticeably absent from anything related to TP.

Look at the nbr of bills introduced, NUK

Take a look at the number of bills introduced in the House, Nuk.

Very few bills to cut spending, except those designed to embarass President Obama.

Then take a look at all the "Save the Babbies!" Fundie crapola in the legislative stream.

The Fundies co-opted the Tea Party last summer, and we are now seeing the bitter fruit of that harvest.

W/out going too deep.. Christine O'Donnel in her several incarnations was against even master debators. Sharon Angels take of this? Sarah Paleon?

Angle and O'Donnell

Total duds. That's why I just look at what the TP is going to do in the future. In its infancy, it's had such huge misses like those two dimwits that are not only an embarrassment to a political movement, but simply embarrassments, period.
Then there are others like Marco Rubio who is a big win. Of course, Rubio also has been mentored by Jeb Bush, the best and the brightest of the family actually, so the TP can't claim all the credit there either.

What happens in the near future with a few TP's in elected office now and who they try to recruit for 2012 will make or break the TP. It could be just a temporary political fad or a real movement. If they rely heavily on people like Palin for much, it will be a very short-lived movement that turns into FAIL.

re: Angel & O'Donnell

Really? Both were touched by the Paleon wand. Angel is probably the now front runner for that straying Jr. Sen post in NV. I love it when Daddy Bush crys about Jeb's Gov defeat in 1994. He know the best & the brightest gave way to Duby. I would say Dimmest but that honor belongs to Neal of Savings & Loangate fame the precursor to the bank meltdown. I will always be disappointed that none, Not One that I know of has participated in Bush's War on Terrorizm.

Not so fast there fatback

Noticed someone got their bacon spanked.

"Voters see “Tea Party” a bit less negatively as a political label these days, while “liberal” and “progressive” have lost ground even among Democrats.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that “conservative” is still the most favored description. Forty-two percent (42%) of Likely U.S. Voters say they view it as a positive if a candidate is described as politically conservative. Twenty-one percent (21%) say it’s a negative description, and 36% rate it somewhere in between the two. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
Conservative, in fact, is the only political label other than “moderate” that is a net plus for a candidate."

We've been over this before. Rasmussen telephone surveys cannot by law dial cell phones, so their "polls" are heavily weighted towards the older, whiter, less affluent. No surprise at all that they've discovered that "conservative" is popular in that demographic.
