A new campaign ad from GOP Senate candidate Sharon Angle highlights the newcomer's political savy. Angle successfully ties the vapid promises of Obama in 2008 with the destructive policies of Senate majority leader Harry Reid. Angle calls attention to the economic havoc that has gripped the Silver State since the last election.
A common story line drawn-up by the mainstream media on the Tea Party, is that its rank and file are ignorant, knuckle-dragging, racists while its candidates are crackpots. Michael Barone comments on Tea Party Neophytes Outshine the Dems’ Old Pros in National Review Online and spotlights GOP candidates who are riding the rising wave of support from the denizens of the grass roots movement. Barone says, "on so many points, I think the mainstream media have gotten it nearly upside-down. What strikes me about so-called Tea Party candidates — those with little or no political experience who have won Republican nominations by opposing the Obama Democrats’ vast expansion of government — is not that some of them are bumblers but that so many of them seem to have terrific political instincts."
