Racist, fearful, easily manipulated, poorly educated hypocrites being led by cynical, partisan leaders is a "grassroots" phenomenon?

They're not involved with their government at all. Let's wait until the elections, then see if they really do vote out all their Republican incumbents. It's easy to say you will, but when the guy running against your incumbent may be a Democrat, well, never mind. That incumbent may look pretty good after all.

Where's the N-Word Evidence?

Andrew Breitbart is offering $10,000 for evidence that it was used at the Tea Party rally in D.C.:

If we let them get away with Saturday’s stunt — using the imagery of the Civil Rights era and hurtful lies to cast aspersions upon the tea party whole — then they really will have won the day.

It’s time for the allegedly pristine character of Rep. John Lewis to put up or shut up. Therefore, I am offering $10,000 of my own money to provide hard evidence that the N- word was hurled at him not 15 times, as his colleague reported, but just once. Surely one of those two cameras wielded by members of his entourage will prove his point.

And surely if those cameras did not capture such abhorrence, then someone from the mainstream media — those who printed and broadcast his assertions without any reasonable questioning or investigation — must themselves surely have it on camera. Of course we already know they don’t. If they did, you’d have seen it by now.

Wow, he's either really confident, or extremely ignorant...

Given what I've seen and heard from Tea Party rallies it's not that hard to imagine. I heard the word several times at the one I went to...

Is he shooting himself in the foot, or exposing an exageration?

We'll see...

^That should be Tim Pawlenty's campaign slogan.

He boasts of his good Minnesota roots, but has governed the state by dismantling what got him to where he is today. He also has the balls to ask our State Attorney General to join the lawsuit against Health Care Reform, yet he (a government employee for 17 years) and his wife (a government employee for 16 years) have enjoyed government health care for almost 2 decades.

I got mine, F the rest of you.

How many kids were in each of your classrooms while growing up Tim? 30? 35? 40?

No, I didn't think so.

I bring up Pawlenty because he going to emerge as one of the more reasonable candidates for 2012. His "No New Taxes" pledge will resonate with Tea Baggers.

INDY has distanced himself, and just today I've now heard 3 conservatives denounce Palin for one reason or another...

Early Easter present? Does it just take some much longer to see? Or some weird twilight zone episode?

Although, there is still David Frum getting fired from the American Enterprise Institute for his Health Care Reform article.

I don't know whether to laugh or be afraid.

is it really partisan?

or is it just wrong to threaten elected officials, government officials, law enforcement, etc?

this guy that got arrested crossed a lot more lines, and deserved to be arrested.

Well so far, I don't think anyone has actually been arrested for threatening Democrats, that I've seen.

I think Deep is just trying to be fair and balanced and show that there are nutjobs on all sides of the aisle.
