Last week, it was "Tea Party terrorists". Now, iterations of the next phrase are beginning to percolate. Get ready.

Doug Powers notes that so far, John Kerry, Howard Dean and David Axelrod are referring to the S&P downgrade as the "Tea Party downgrade".

First up today is John Kerry. It's some kind of hilarious to watch a big spending, pro bloated government liberal try to come across like a life-long hawk on cutting deficits, shrinking government and tackling the debt problem- if only his hands weren't tied by those darned anti-spending cuts Tea Partiers.


Also today, David Axelrod referred to it as the "Tea Party downgrade", as did Howard Dean.
