RUSH: The media has been lulled into a sense of false security. They think the Tea Party has gone away, because they view the Tea Party as a protest movement, and there aren’t any Tea Party protests anymore. So since they don’t see a Tea Party protest anywhere, they think the Tea Party has gone away. Well, the Tea Party has moved on from being a protest movement, and they are now a full-fledged political movement in every state working to get their candidates elected. And they are succeeding on the classic, Civics 101 basis: With ideas.(Read More)
After conservative radio talker Rush Limbaugh’s remarks about Georgetown Law School student and contraception activist Sandra Fluke made him a political lightning rod, it was the liberal Media Matters for America that pressured his advertisers in a bid to force his program off the airwaves.

Now, folks, the Wall Street Journal today called yesterday “a constitutional awakening.” And at first glance you might say, “Yeah, yeah. Okay.” Because what happened yesterday? What happened yesterday was a bunch of people thought that this was a slam-dunk that it would be declared constitutional, including the mandate. And the court went the way it did during oral arguments and all of the “learned” people were shocked and stunned and couldn’t believe it and sunk into immediate depression. The Wall Street Journal says: Well, we had a “constitutional awakening.” I would beg to differ. The “constitutional awakening” is the Tea Party. The Tea Party was the “constitutional awakening” in 2009 and 2010.
The Tea Party voting in the midterms in 2010, that’s the “constitutional awakening.” The election was a “constitutional awakening.” The fact that we hang by a thread here in the Supreme Court is not a “constitutional awakening.” What this is… And this is my point of the whole show so far. This oral argument — these hearings, whatever you want to call ’em — is evidence of the deterioration of the rule of law in this country. We are hanging by a thread! More than likely we’re hanging by the vote of one man, one Supreme Court justice. I don’t care if it’s Kennedy or whoever. Just the fact that one person out of 311 million decides this? That’s not a “constitutional awakening.” This is evidence of how far we have sunk if you ask me. No, I’m still glad it happened. Don’t misunderstand. I’m just still in a state of shock that we have gotten here. I’m still in a state of utter disbelief that we have arrived at this point.
But we have, and we are here.
So it must be dealt with accordingly.
More than 25 percent of House Members serving their first full term in Congress have already set up their own political action committees, making the term “leadership PAC” a bit of a misnomer.
I think this is a learning minute. (Read More)
Tea party leaders can be found this fall hawking a Constitution-themed coloring book, riding a tour bus across the country and endorsing 2012 candidates — but not issuing policy proposals for cutting the deficit.(Read More)
