    Top Senate Dems pitch for Elizabeth Warren's senatorial campaign(y)
    By Josh Lederman - 01/19/12 05:31 PM ET

    Top Democratic leaders in the Senate are appealing to their supporters to help former Obama administration official Elizabeth Warren take down GOP Sen. Scott Brown in Massachusetts.

    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), the No. 2 Democrat in the Senate, both penned letters on Thursday asking supporters to donate to Warren’s campaign.

    Scott Walker's Fundraising Pitch: 'Big Labor Bosses' Are Trying To 'Barge And Bully' Into Wisconsin
    You betcha!:D
    Posted: 1/20/12 12:44 PM ET

    WASHINGTON -- "Big Union-sponsored mercenaries." "Bare-knuckle union attacks." "Strong-arm tactics."

    Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker's (R) most recent fundraising letter to solicit donations for a potential recall election minces no words in going after his Democratic and union opponents. The four-page letter uses a variation of "Big Labor Bosses" 14 times. It also calls out other classic bogeymen for the right: the "Moveon.org Radicals," "Liberal Billionaire George Soros' attack organizations," "President Obama's Political Machine" and the "Ultra Left-Wing Elites from Hollywood and Manhattan."

    So civilized.:rolleyes:
    First Posted: 01/23/2012 2:44 pm Updated: 01/23/2012 5:25 pm

    WASHINGTON -- The race for the Arkansas' third congressional district took a gruesome turn on Sunday, when the campaign manager for Democratic challenger Ken Aden came home and found his cat slaughtered with the word "liberal" painted on the corpse.

    Tea Party Groups In Tennessee Demand Textbooks Overlook U.S. Founder's Slave-Owning History :rolleyes:
    First Posted: 01/23/2012 4:08 pm Updated: 01/23/2012 5:26 pm

    A little more than a year after the conservative-led state board of education in Texas approved massive changes to its school textbooks to put slavery in a more positive light, a group of Tea Party activists in Tennessee has renewed its push to whitewash school textbooks. The group is seeking to remove references to slavery and mentions of the country's founders being slave owners.

    According to reports, Hal Rounds, the Fayette County attorney and spokesman for the group, said during a recent news conference that there has been "an awful lot of made-up criticism about, for instance, the founders intruding on the Indians or having slaves or being hypocrites in one way or another."

    To make matters worse I get a double whammy of shame - I have a hereditary connection to both Tennessee (Dad) and Texas (Mom) - probably explains a lot.:eek::D
