The great news on OBAMACARE has place Democrats in a very good position this November… had OBAMACARE been a complete disaster with under a million signing up then it would have been dismal for Democrats in the mid-terms. But now President Obama has placed the Democratic Party in an outstanding position to not only hold the Senate but possibly take back the House… possibly.

The American people are tired of being manipulated by Carville, and Greenberg. There is a whole new group of voters that get their information from the internet, not Jon Stewart. The can read, and everything.

Boy, it is important to have different sources - yes even finding political humor from Stewart and others. Fux has old folks and it seems young people are going elsewhere for the truth - including those programs who mock the political hypocrisy.

Are you trying to keep the young in the folds pookie. They left months ago when Obama lied to them about ObamaCare.

As the article states :
""Roughly one in five voters in 2012 said that the most important trait in making up their mind about who to vote for was that the candidate “cares about people like me.” "

The repubes need to work on that one ....

It's like the last line in the movie "Halloween"

"What's the Boogeyman?"

"Obama is the Boogeyman."

Trying to polish a turd just gets shit everywhere.

And you still end up with a turd.

Yep, the Conservatards are great at creating the boogie man out of thin air. Maybe the Dems should take a lesson or two in demonoligy from the Conservatards and turn the tables on them.

Fascinating is tracking the boogie man du jour or the boogie man of the week. Looks like there is an echo chamber of boogie chatter and I question where the choice of boogie man comes from.

A rhetorical question!

You got it wrong. Again. I see the Dems making more boogeymen out of the "War on woman", "war on the poor", "war on minorities", "war on the environment", "war on children", "war on the middle class".... Did I forget any?

You forgot that those who are fighting those "wars" are trying to make it better for the poor, women, minorities, etc. They are fighting for those folks and not against them.

Did I forget anything ....?

Ahh yes, getting our news from COMEDY CENTRAL is truly a great resource! Its a comedy station dude, seriously. should we get our economic reports from Tosh.O next? I suppose we should trust foreign policy to South Park or maybe the Justice Dept should be run by Futurama. Its poltical HUMOR like you said. Its not a news source nor should it be thought of as one. As for "Fux"? your constant hate and bashing of our elderly is feeding the Republican's claims that all Dems hate old people hence the Dem's "war on the elderly"!!!! See how easy that was?

Dear, Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert and Bill Maher skewer politics and bring humor to a subject which is sometimes lacking in humor. Don't knock it, boy, as it is preferable to the Enquirer.

Many venues for news, many venues for satire and many venues for spam (ie topix!)

Why would I hate elderly folks - I am one, silly!

You miss the point about fux, dear, in that their demographics are with the older folks - that is a fact - let me help ....

""Just how old is its audience? It is impossible to be precise because Nielsen stops giving an exact figure for median age once it passes 65. But for six of the last eight years, Fox News has had a median age of 65-plus and the number of viewers in the 25-54 year old group has been falling consistently, down five years in a row in prime time, from an average of 557,000 viewers five years ago to 379,000 this year.""

Probably why the Dems keep rabbling about the need to eliminate Soc.Sec., Medicare, Medicaid and writing funding for them out of their budgets.
