Who doesn't like an in-your-face Taibbi political blog? This one is pretty funny. (See comments for serious discussion of fiscal cliff and more.)http://www.rollingstone.com/politics/blogs/taibblog/jim-demi...Jim DeMint: The Fireman Ed of PoliticsMatt Taibbi<snip>Privately, what you hear on the Hill is more and more complaining that Tea Party extremism of the DeMint type has not only cost Republicans the Senate ... but perhaps the White House as well. .......So this is a mutual split. The Tea Partiers were sick to the point of puking of RINO types like Boehner who are gearing up to put the Republican Party's name on a massive tax increase and may eventually bend on choice, immigration and gay rights. The Republican establishment, meanwhile, is sick of waking up every morning wondering which of the party's extremist dingbats has decided that the best way to win national elections is to give interviews calling carbon dioxide a safe, naturally-occurring gas or demanding that unmarried, sexually-active women be barred from teaching children. The disgust these two groups feel for each other is genuine and in some cases may actually exceed the disgust they feel toward opponents on the blue side of the aisle.
