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