You won’t BELIEVE just how furiously Politico spun this #DCCC #Obamacare memo!
Background: Politico has acquired a memo (which they did not share, shockingly*) from presumably the DCCC that describes the strategy, for lack of a better word, of the Democratic party with regard to Obamacare.

Douglas Ruskkoff And The Luddite Left
Wow! I thought I was the political reactionary. When did Archie Bunker register as a moss-backed Democrat and start work at some predictably Lysenkian font of mainstream media bed-pan wisdom? This apparently took place because Progressive jet-fuel geniuses have just now figured out that a free-flow of information will make it harder for them to control what people are currently thinking or what they say.
I’ve just read an example of this Progressive Neo-Reaction in a Politico Magazine article entitled “How Technology Killed The Future.” Author Douglas Ruskkoff, like the PTSDed space marine in the movie “Aliens” tells us its game over. He explains the nature of our ineffable damnation below.

That’s why the media will see this off-year election | Read More »
Obama is America’s First AWOL President — Blame the Mainstream Media
Is Obama our nation’s first AWOL president? The answer is painfully obvious.

Two Supreme Ironies Of The Boston Terror Attacks
Last Tuesday, April 16th, in response to a piece I had written here on RedState on the day of the Boston attack, Politico reporter Dylan Byers tweeted the following: A right-wing blogger gambles on speculation: “Why It Is Obvious That The Boston Marathon Attack Is Islamic Terrorism” http://bit.ly/ZmGwpG Even though my “gamble” paid off, I will not be collecting any winnings.

Politico’s Emily Schulteis Misses a Few Key Details About Bobby Jindal
Politico reporter Emily Schulteis proves today why journalism is a dying and biased industry. She bought the spin of a Louisiana political hack who actually worked for Kathleen Blanco – a politician Jindal ran against and practically forced out of office.
