THIS is why DU is so unhinged today about the tea party protest in DC.
It's not the only OP like it on there today. They are jealous. And they are angry and resentful that conservatives just don't go away and make things easy for them.Bgno64 (48 posts)
The media is aiding the teabaggers
Just watching NBC Evening News, who gave a huge opening bit to the teabaggery in D.C. today - far greater attention/coverage than I can remember for any of the anti-war protests in the lead-up to Iraq, some of which were far larger.
This is because NBC and all these other networks are trying to show the teabaggers, hey look, really, we're fair and balanced too! We'll give you more coverage than you warrant and far more than we gave the anti-war crowds because see, we like conservatives, we're not trying to discriminate!!!
And it ain't gonna matter a bit - the teabaggers are going to hate NBC as much tomorrow as they do today. Why doesn't that they are trying to win over a demographic they simply are --NEVER-- going to win over? When are they going to stop bending over backwards to say nice things about the clown show?
