Alex Sink was the dream candidate for Democrats in a special Congressional election set in a swing district in Florida.

As one of the first to chronicle and applaud its rise, I am not ready to pronounce the death of the tea party movement. But there are plenty of reasons to believe that what was a concerted and focused force in politics is becoming more that of a less focused and more diffused effort.

If anyone believes that this nation is truly left of center, they should consider a new poll coming from the usually administration-friendly CBS News. Their polling unit reports that a majority of Americans are disappointed in President Obama and give him lousy ratings for his handling foreign policy and the economy.

Few columnists have railed against the GOP "establishment," aka the "silk underwear crowd," more than I.

Oh, such heresy, a "conservative columnist" daring to suggest supporting Hillary Clinton. Well, think again.

We've been waiting for this moment to arrive for some time. Now it is upon us, and neither the Republicans in Washington nor investors in Wall Street really want to talk about it.

It was a winter storm response described as an "epic failure" of government by one national news network.

As the Republican National Convention begins meetings in the winter wonderland of Washington, D.C., there is a hope for sunnier days for future Republican candidates. Some of the GOP's brightest minds, such as longtime GOP Committeeman, activist and Newt Gingrich protege Randy Evans, have been behind the push to rearrange the dates of both the next presidential primaries and the 2016 RNC.

The mainstream media can't figure out why Americans won't get on the "global warming" train or why the whole nation isn't obsessed with Chris Christie and "Bridgegate" or even come to grips with why consumers didn't spend themselves silly during the Christmas season.

Within a matter of days, it has become cliche to make note of President Obama's new commitment to ending "income inequality" in America after returning from a vacation in Hawaii that costs taxpayers millions of dollars.

Could there be a group that looks more insular, elitist and out of touch than the U.S. Chamber of Commerce?

I have no earthly idea who allegedly represents small businesses in Washington D.C. or, for that matter, in most states, but I know one thing -- they stink at their job.

Yes, I've written this before, but in the context of the proposed budget agreement, it needs to be restated. Real conservatives supported the government shutdown in October and should make no apologies for that stance.

Let's be honest, no matter how one paints it or spins it, CNN is a news network in trouble. I can talk about this because I have known far too many former CNN leaders, anchors, and alumni to not know a little bit about the history of the company.

As the holiday season approaches, they are dancing on Wall Street with the Dow, S&P and NASDQ either at or approaching all-time highs. And while his popularity is rapidly joining his Health Care Reform Act near the bottom of the political trash heap, the tin-eared President Obama continues to glide on the dance floor of the White House celebrating the Democrats clampdown on filibusters and an ill-advised agreement on nukes in Iran.

The tea party spirit is alive and well in a Georgia county, where less than 20 years ago Newt Gingrich led a national movement that propelled Republicans to control of the U.S. House of Representatives.

For the record, I do not know the Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus. I'm told he's a nice person, and I understand shares membership in a collegiate fraternity.

With the current debacle of the Obamacare "failure to launch" in full swing, it may well be that Democrats have little, if any, prayer of keeping their control of the U.S. Senate after the 2014 elections.

Sometimes I am just plain amazed at how corporations, various industries and certainly political parties and their numerous affiliate groups prefer to cry in their coffee, curse the darkness and cede public opinion when it is being manipulated against them.

Several weeks ago, this columnist predicted that the government shutdown would end up centering on the debt ceiling and would require the threat of a semi-disaster on Wall Street in order to bring about a solution. Such was indeed the case.
