Noted. Maddow says “If you step back from stories like this for just a minute,” she said, “it’s kind of an amazing phenomenon. This is not war between the parties, this is not liberals versus conservatives. This is all the power and money and energy that the right can muster being directed at incumbent Republicans.”
Thank You Carrie.

Apparently being racist, sexist and stupid is en vogue these days. We are in retrograde and losing ground as a society when reactionaries take us backward. How far back would they like us to go?
Should we revoke the right to vote for blacks? women? Get women out of the workforce? Maybe if we go back to slaver y for African Americans and chattelism for women; maybe if we uninvent the wheel and rescind scientific breakthroughs, we can achieve satisfactory incomprehension and unenlightenment.

I don't care what Maddox thinks as she doesn't really shape my world. Then again, most Americans would fing her to Liberal and think much the same about the progressive wing of the democrats.

thanks, I think RM is wonderful......very fascinating....I would say that very little surprises me about the Tea Party.........I am waiting for them all to secede, why do they keep promising, but then keep running for US government......they are free to leave anytime they want.....not sure where they would go, but I hear there are applications being taken for flights to Mars.....

Rachel Maddow is my hero! She is so refreshingly honest and courageous!
As for the GOP, it's SO scintillating to just sit back and watch them IMPLODE!

The Tea Party is the culmination of the Bu$h League era! The celebration of ignorance & "failing up"! IDIOCRACY wasn't just a movie, it's a Documentary!
That is exactly what Bu$h League Politics is all about: "...he has actively participated in groups that advocate the overthrow of the federal government." The Bu$h League IS the dismanteling of Every safety net! From FEMA to Social Security - Nothing useful & Necessary will be left if RepubliCONs can Privatize, Demonize, or outright Destroy it!

GOP is certainly a fair target and easy to ridicule. Why isn't anyone here looking at what the current administration is doing in your name. The constitutional rights and civil liberties of the American populace have been not maintained from the previous administration, but expanded and codified. It has been disclosed to the world that not only does the American government spy on enemies, it also spies on allies and gathers all of the digital information of American citizens. Wall Street hasn't been reformed and we are back to business as usual. While JP Morgan was fined $13 billion (a pittance to them), yet I am sure Barack Obama is still playing golf with Jamie Dimon. While we were all screaming about the war on Iraq & Afghanistan, we fail to note that the war on Iraq was expanded under Obama. This adminstration is flying drones over countries we are not at war with and raining a the mother lode on a population we claim are terrorists, although we don't even know the names of the casualities and really don't care. Although it is hugely entertaining going after the GOP (and definitely justified) which has turned into a carnival, maybe it's time to start looking directly at this administration and wonder what it does in your name. The GOP is not the issue anymore, the issue is, is it too late to stop the overtaking by the corporate masters. Basic human nature has us defend what we supported. In this case, Barack Obama. We have to take a long, hard look and view what we support through the same lens we use to look at when the GOP does it. I think the only conclusion one can come to is that it isn't about Barack Obama, nor is it about the GOP. The whole stinking mess, the political process is morally bankrupt, corrupt and ruled by the corporatocracy.

Elizabeth, all of those issues are addressed on Care2 on posts for which they are on topic. They are off topic here.

The way that the Tea Party has really brought political debate to a new Nadir, with a combination of sheer stupidity, an appreciation of the joys of swinging from trees, flinging crap,unrestrained masturbation in public and pissing anywhere they want. The madness of the Tea Party is that they are still feral and it is unlikely that it will last much longer.
