Like the whole of mainstream media, CNN stinks and they know it. They are aware of how their shows distort the political reality and divide the American public at a time when we desperately need unity. But they still can’t help themselves. Let’s just turn them all off.

Delaware Tea Party Republican candidate, Christine O’Donnell is surprised to learn there’s a clause in the 1st Amendment prohibiting the government from establishing a religion. But that’s just par for a group that has little respect for the US Constitution.

I have noticed many Democrats and progressives as well as the neocons attack O’Donnell for her ridiculous beliefs regarding witchcraft, masturbation, sex, and clowns. I really don’t care about her views on these irrelevant issues, but we must always be concerned if she uses the government to impose her views on everyone.

The latest television ad for Tea Party backed Senatorial candidate, Christine O’Donnell starts with the candidate stating: “I’m not a witch, I’m you.” Oh yeah, hardly.

The mainstream media continue to misrepresent the facts and the realities of the Tea Party, especially when it comes to social issues.

Making Rush Limbaugh out of a monkey?

If you’re a Liberal or Progressive or just a vanilla Democrat who has been thinking about an electoral rout this fall, congratulations, you’re a member of the elite. I can’t really estimate how many of us there are, but the fact is that most of the nation did not really start paying attention to the 2010 election cycle until after Jerry Lewis brought his Labor Day telethon to a close.
Sure there was lots of polling that said people were pissed at the government, who wouldn’t be when there is nearly 10% unemployment and things don’t seem to be getting measurably better for millions of people? The “Throw the Bums Out!” sentiment is always strongest before the vast majority of the people start paying attention to the actual candidates they have to choose between. That is part of why the generic ballot polling is almost useless. We don’t get to pick between Democrat and Republican, we get to pick between two (or occasionally more) real people who speak and have a record we can judge.
This is where the political rubber meets the road. For all their structural advantages (bad economy, large majorities some of which are from very conservative districts, midterm election without the White House) the Republicans should be looking at a sweep. The thing is they still have not learned the lessons of the 2006 and 2008 elections. Americans don’t want rabid conservatives; they want some representation that will solve their problems. This leaves the Republicans out in the cold.

John McCain: The Dance Remix– “I don’t care what you say and what others say!”

There seems to be a growing sense of buyer’s remorse among both members of the Tea Party Movement and Republican Party regulars surrounding the primary win of Christine O’Donnell. Buyer’s remorse is a condition that arises after people have bought something or bought into something with a feeling of personal comfort that then disappears after the purchase. The buyer is then left with a sense of remorse over having made the purchase in the first place. Questions surrounding O’Donnell’s ability to get elected and her past personal history have caught the attention of prominent Republicans like the head of the Delaware GOP, Tom Ross, Karl Rove, or Congressman Mike Pence, (R-IN).
