When Roger West first launched the progressive political blog "News From The Other Side" in May 2010, he could hardly have predicted the impact that his venture would have on the media and political debate. As the New Media emerged as a counterbalance to established media sources, Roger wrote his copious blogs about national politics, the tea party movement, mid-term elections, and the failings of the radical right to the vanguard of the New Media movement. Roger West's efforts as a leading blogger have tremendous reach. NFTOS has led the effort to bring accountability to mainstream media sources such as FOX NEWS, Breitbart's "Big Journalism. Roger's breadth of experience, engaging style, and cultivation of loyal readership - over 92 million visitors - give him unique insight into the past, present, and future of the New Media and political rhetoric that exists in our society today.

To often is the case, that we find - that there is no pale beyond the GOP. Mitch McConnell is another tea bagger that can be added to this list!

On February 2, Mitch McConnell, the teapublican leader in the US Senate, opened up his 2014 reelection campaign headquarters in Louisville, Kentucky, and in front of several dozen supporters vowed to "point out" the weaknesses of any opponent fielded by the Democrats. "They want to fight? We're ready," he declared. McConnell was serious:

Later that day, he was huddling with aides in a private meeting to discuss how to attack his possible Democratic foes, including actor/activist Ashley Judd, who was then contemplating challenging the minority leader. During this strategy session—a recording of which was obtained by Mother Jones—McConnell and his aides considered assaulting Judd for her past struggles with depression and for her religious views.

I was thinking, don’t you hate that awkward moment when you turn on CSPAN-2 and you can’t tell if you’re watching the Senate minority leader or a sea turtle? We know the feeling.
We first noticed the similarities while witnessing Sen. Mitch McConnell stick his neck out in the Senate. We’re just going to be blunt about this: the guy looks like a turtle.

Let's be real readers, mental instability is a prerequisite for the American Taliban. Mitch "turtle" [aptly named turtle for his unique resemblance to a turtle] McConnell is as deviant as they come. The turtle has never won a legitimate race without demolishing his opponent and is accustomed to the nasty politics of the rabid right! 

As for mental health care, at least Judd got some help - something the turtle never has done [but in much need of the services]. The turtle is a self-loathing GOP troll - and these type of GOPers are the most vicious and destructive people to ever hold office in our country.
