    Seriously, what WAS Olbermann thinking? Stupidity knows no race, creed, color, gender, or sexual orientation. Blacks and Hispanics have as much right to make asses of themselves as white people do!

    I thought it was very cool to see Ron Paul get the nod at CPAC. Nice to see the one true conservative actually get the nod there.
    But the reception that the Paul announcement received, more boos than cheers, really displayed what the Republicans think of the teabag movement. They want to corral the teabagger's queer rage and aim it at the Democrats, but if they do anything to upset a more traditional Republican candidate, well, the Republicans will kick them to the curb. The Republicans blow a lot of smoke about conservative purity, but when the one true conservative gets a small win, well, we hear boos.
    The Republicans will do whatever they can to hijack the teabag movement. Be careful you teabagger people with your odd and misguided name; watch your backs.

    It's been in the news, and it's been in the new's over and over as to where the "T-Baggers" funding is coming from, as well as to who's stirring the pot.

    They've been had and they don't mind one wit.

    Look, it was the same now disgruntled people who didn't mind Cheney and Bush running over all of us. They just grinned all the while saying "They're keeping us safe", while the extreme right robbed us of our freedoms and our bank accounts.

    Clueless in the extreme.

    Maybe if the extreme left wasn't so busy destabilizing society from within on behalf of the extreme right those people wouldn't have fallen into the mires of the Republican party.

    They wouldn't have fallen into the wet, spongy earth (also known as bog or marsh) of the Republican party?

    Well that's just a damn shame, that's what it is!

    No. They might have found their way to more genuine forms of conservatism swaying their own efforts to more fruitful pursuits. Of course, liberals are so smugly entrenched within the democratic party that they are far beyond hope. They are useful idiots at the mercy of the very same "right wing extremists" (read: international globalists) who control the Republican party. Conservatives have at least shown some initiative in offering a realistically viable third position.

    Okay, let's hear about this viable third position.

    Gov. Charlie Crist, R-Fla., was once thought a shoo-in for his party's nomination to replace retired Sen. Mel Martinez, R. Now he's become such an underdog in his primary against former state House Speaker Marco Rubio that his political director and new media consultant have left the campaign.

    Political director Pablo Diaz, one of the first two staff members hired for the Senate campaign, is departing at the end of the month for "a new opportunity." Sean Doughtie, a well-regarded new media consultant who had worked with Crist for years, stopped working for the campaign at the end of January.

    "The campaign was going in a different direction," said Doughtie.

    Meanwhile, Crist defiantly expresses no regrets over his support of the stimulus package, for which he campaigned along with President Obama last February.

    Pajama Party!!!

    You haven't seen nothin' yet. Just wait until the Pajama Party emerges. Yes, that's right, I'm predicting a Pajama Party grassroots movement to emerge across this great nation. They've already got a conservative/libertarian media outlet/blog going strong.

    Eventually they'll team up with the Tea Party and there will be monumental "Pajamas 'n Tea Parties". The tough decision will be whether to meet at 4 pm or 10 pm. Some of the Pajama Party men folk are no doubt excited to see Sarah Palin in her jammies and they eagerly anticipate a vigorous pillow fight with the former Governor of Alaska.

    If there were an "extreme left" in this country of any significant size it would be far more visible than any imaginary "destabilizing."

    To wit: Union organizing, formation of a labor party, general strikes, and the possibility of revolution.

    Branding liberals as the "extreme left" is typical right-wing hyperbole.

    At a T-Party rally, I couldn't believe the hatred and snide speak that these people were into. Each and everyone of them had a hate filled remark or rant. The signs they carried and jigged up and down were the same.

    One sign in among many other's that were making fun of and coming down on President Obama was the easiest to see, and it was all telling as to where the T-Party is coming from. It said, "I VOTED FOR THE AMERICAN".

    Like the man who seems to be much admired by T-Party crowds, they strike me as those who were non-voters in the past. Now that they do vote, it still doesn't say much for their intellect. Their ability to grasp or understand what it is this country is in need of alludes them.

    Be careful those of you who are pulling their strings, giving them their sense of power, as they could very well turn on the hand that feeds them, as like you, they are self seeking and looking out for themselves in a most selfish manner.

    The T-Party crowds have this going on, it's what makes them a danger; it's their lack of seeking out truths and facts, and, of not delving into what it is we are all in need of. Even when seeing the truth of matters, when they come face to face with it, the truth is ignored or thought of as evil and taxing.

    The power they're seeking could undermine much that is good. Such power in the hands of ill informed bigots, will make it harder for everyone, harder for them as well the rest of us. A movement such as their's is just what the founding fathers feared.

    Right-wing hyperbole is merely a reflection of left-wing hyperbole. For a liberal, there is no such thing as a "moderate" right. If being against immigration and multiculturalism makes me a Nazi, being an advocate of either of those things makes you a commie bastard.

    This isn't 1917. Modern liberalism is a whole different bag of tricks from the old socialist and communist variety of lunacy. To wit:
