But wait -- hasn't the MSM said groups like the Tea Partiers are a bunch of reactionary kooks?

CNN Poll: Majority says government a threat to citizens' rights.

Fifty-six percent of people questioned in a CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey released Friday say they think the federal government's become so large and powerful that it poses an immediate threat to the rights and freedoms of ordinary citizens. Forty-four percent of those polled disagree.

The survey indicates a partisan divide on the question: only 37 percent of Democrats, 63 percent of Independents and nearly 7 in 10 Republicans say the federal government poses a threat to the rights of Americans.

And it's that 63% of Independents -- a heckuva lot closer to the nearly 70% of Republicans than the 37% of Democrats -- that will sink Obama's party this November, especially if it insists on jamming through their version of health care reform.

Just keep this poll in mind the next time you see/hear some MSM pundit trashing groups like the Tea Partiers, the largest manifestation of this majority-of-voters sentiment.
