There were a lot of good news stories today but this is the one I chose to cover tonight for the simple reason that it is just ridiculous enough to fully represent the overboard thought processes of extreme liberal groups.

From a HuffingtonPost article, written by Michael McAuliff, “A liberal super PAC is set Monday to launch what it is billing as a multimillion dollar campaign to ‘Take Down the Tea Party Ten.’”

This campaign is being run by the progressive group CREDO (a group that can receive unlimited donations) and their objective is to defeat ten members of Congress viewed by the left as the “worst of the worst”.

Before even reading deeper into this story it is my opinion that the Republican names on this liberal list ought to be flattered for being singled out and the bland, childish accusations the progressive group is assaulting them with only serve as further evidence of how out of touch some of those on the left are with all reality.

“We’re talking about some of the most odious members of Congress. Even for Republicans these guys are low...We're going to empower local activists to organize their friends and neighbors to lay out the truth about their representatives in the most basic terms. They are anti-woman. They are anti-science. They are hypocritical, bigoted, and have said and done things that are downright crazy. They've done more to embarrass their constituents than they have to govern or work toward solutions. They are unfit for Congress, and we're going to help their constituents hold them accountable."

Campaign Manager Matthew “Mudcat” Arnold

Only six Representatives have been selected as targets so far. They are Representatives Sean Duffy (R-Wis.), Steve King (R-Iowa), Allen West (R-Fla.), Joe Walsh (R-Ill.), Frank Guinta (R-N.H.), and Chip Cravaack (R-Minn.)

The CREDO super PAC will be opening offices in each of the targeted members’ districts to network with individuals in the areas who already oppose these members of Congress.

Anti-woman? Anti-science? Hypocritical and bigoted? Downright crazy?

These accusations are more meaninglessly general and unfounded than the grade-school level message our president’s State of the Union Address achieved on Tuesday night.

Good luck, CREDO, and here is a recent quote from “downright crazy”Allen West:

“We need to let President Obama, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, and my dear friend the chairman of the Democrat National Committee, we need to let them know that Florida ain’t on the table. Take your message of equality of achievement, take your message of economic dependency, take your message of enslaving the entrepreneurial will and spirit of the American people somewhere else. You can take it to Europe, you can take it to the bottom of the sea, you can take it to the North Pole, but get the hell out of the United States of America.”

494.6 miles to go.

Here is what happened one year ago on Day154.
