New York state could be the only place where the Tea Party Movement may have hurt the Republicans rather than help them. It didn’t help that Carl Paladino was not ready for prime time and got set up by the Dems and the fringe stream media like a bowling pin. And now King Cuomo is firmly in charge.

In the next two years Republicans will have to decide what really works in New York may not be the same as what works for the rest of the country. Perhaps it’s better to be pragmatic than idealistic.

On the other hand two years can be a long time in the age of 24/7 hour news cycles. The Republican tsunami that swept most of the nation could grow in 2012 to reach into places as unlikely as the NY-21 where the GOP candidate did allot better than the usual token challenge in 2010.

But whatever optimism Republicans have about this nation’s future. They need to remember that New York State is an alternate reality.

What began nationwide as a reaction to President Obama’s radical agenda, the Tea Party Movement is now a proactive call to return the Republican Party to it’s conservative roots.  Even here in liberal New York State the Tea Party Movement is alive and well.  No longer are New York Republicans content to be Democrat lite in order to get their candidates elected.  They want real conservatives.

The best example of this is the Tea Party’s endorsement of gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino.  This race that’s down to the wire has become IMHO the fight to save The Republican Party in New York State.

Here’s the story from YNN Albany

The YNN Tea Party Report

April 17, 2010

Here’s the way Time Warner Cable’s “Your News Now” covered today’s Tea Party in downtown Albany.   (Click on picture)

For the most part their coverage was positive except when presenting an opposing view they always go for the most inflammatory.  That would be former President’s Clinton remark comparing Tea Party protesters to the terrorists who caused the Oklahoma City bombings.

(OH WELL,   PAR FOR THE COURSE!)

CNN needs to get their heads out of the sand so they can learn to count crowds better. One of their reporters covering the big Tea Party event in Nevada, numbered the crowd at, “hundreds perhaps dozens.” Gee that’s funny others covering the very same event put the number closer to 20K!

Hmmmm! I wonder who is closer to the truth. Let’s check the photos, SHALL WE! (HT Atlas Shrugs)

Looks like the 20K number is the right one!  Notice the second photo of the woodstock type traffic jam of people still trying to reach the event after it already had begun.  Here I thought CNN was becoming more conservative.  Cue the buzzer!  BeeeeeeeeeeeP!

CNN is STILL stuck on stupid!
