Wolf Blitzer is the most inane person in cable news, and that's saying something.

What will happen if a hen impregnates an asteroid? Certainly, this will result in a snow storm over the Canary Islands, which will guarantee an FDP landslide in the next Nigerian election. Do you get me?

And probably will be the most sane person in the room which says something else...

But yes you are right on the money here.

Blitzer is... okay, I guess. If nothing else, he won't be engaging in "American Idol or Reach for the Stars" stupid questions.

My prediction: someone after the debate with say something containing a variation on "Romney did well" and "Ron Paul was...Ron Paul" ("RON PAUL WAS AN INSANE LOON WHO DEMONSTRATED HIS LOONINESS" falls into that category), since that happens every debate regardless of content.

I'm really surprised at how much the mainstream media/liberal media hate the Tea Party.  Apparently, they hate the Tea Party because "the tea party is racist" or something like that. 
I agree that the Tea Party is an insurgent, anti-establishment renegade that rubs a lot of the liberals and older GOP the wrong way, but I'm just surprised at how much liberal journalists "hate" the tea party and aren't afraid to say so openly.  I understand the Tea Party is comprised of many loose groups and leaders, who come off as annoying but its also an insurgent populist independent, secular sentiment that helped propel the anti-war and anti-establishment Obama to election victory.  I was watching the Chris Matthews show, which I enjoy for its rapid pace and quick dialogue, and one of the polls said that 11-1 of the panel thought Obama would win re-election despite 8.5% unemployment - either those journalists are obama-loving liberals or they just want to maintain access to Obama until he loses. 

Its just sickening when journalists ignore the numbers and just let their bias overcome rationality.

I love how CNN plays the "Tea Party" card then the next day will accuse them of being rascist and air a special about Islamaphobia or someother stupid thing regarding race.

That they are illiberal is enough for liberals of any kind. But worse, it is demagogic, anti-rational, and low-brow.

One does not win most political campaigns by showing oneself abrasive, let alone demonstrably wrong. So Barack Obama has become part of the political Establishment? Such demonstrates a measure of success.

The Hard Right makes President Obama, flawed as he might be as President, look good by contrast.  To be sure, a 12-person panel of educated people is by nature unrepresentative of America. But who else is going to know anything about history or political science?

Which numbers can one believe? Strange, unforeseen things can happen.

This opening is terribly over dramatic.

I like how they're trying to sink Huntsman, saying that he wants to carve a "more moderate path." Yeah, that's going to work with this crowd. The Santorum characterization was good.
