For Tea Parties, Bigger May Not Be Better
BigGovernment.com (Steve McQueen) - "After reading Warner Todd Huston's article, Tea Parties: The Biggest Mistake We Could Make in 2010, I was incredulous. It seems misguided to suggest top down management in a time when big companies, big organizations, and big government have received bailouts after spending like drunken thieves or failing in the marketplace. Under what premise can anyone make the case that the solution to our nation's dilemma is a big organization, especially a Big Tea Party? In all cases big leadership has resulted in big corruption, which is at the root of almost every issue before us."

Will Massachusetts send ACORN flunky Coakley to replace Ted Kennedy?
American Thinker (Mark J. Fitzgibbons) - "On January 19, Massachusetts will hold a special election to fill the U.S. Senate seat held formerly by the late Ted Kennedy. The Democratic candidate, Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley, was one of only six attorneys general to receive a grade of A+ from ACORN in 2008. In her news release, Ms. Coakley said, 'I am honored to have received this recognition from ACORN.'
"As attorney general, Ms. Coakley has been responsible for licensing all nonprofit organizations operating in her state, and overseeing the reporting and financial disclosures of those organizations. To the extent ACORN was operating in Massachusetts, it was doing so with the express approval of Ms. Coakley's office. Whatever ACORN's unlawful operations in Massachusetts may have been, Ms. Coakley had the authority and obligation to take actions to stop them."
Republican in Striking Distance in Massachusetts Special Senate Election
Rasmussen Reports - "State Attorney General Martha Coakley holds a nine-point lead over her Republican rival, state Senator Scott Brown, in Massachusetts' special U.S. Senate election to fill the seat of the late Edward M. Kennedy. A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of likely voters in the state finds Coakley ahead of Brown 50% to 41%.
"Special elections are typically decided by who shows up to vote and it is clear from the data that Brown's supporters are more enthusiastic. In fact, among those who are absolutely certain they will vote, Brown pulls to within two points of Coakley."
