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.

The American Teahadists mission, suicide by politics, is not going so well - as the radical group has sunk to an all time low - with just a 28 percent favorable impression of them.

According to the latest monthly Gallup tracking poll. The number ” is the lowest favorable rating measured for either party since Gallup began asking this question in 1992,” the polling company stated.

At this very moment, root canals, cockroaches, and genital herpes are more popular than the conservatives.

Rachel Maddow opened her show Wednesday night highlighting the GOP’s record low poll numbers in the midst of the government shutdown. And, as Maddow put it, things aren't going to get better anytime soon for them, because, as she put it, today their strategy “just collapsed.”

Maddow brought up the new spate of “denialism that the debt ceiling matters at all” and how Wall Street is now “freaking out” because they’re realizing some Republicans being okay with default means the U.S. could actually default. And that’s not good for anyone.

Alan Grayson the other day sought to bring a resolution declaring that the government shutdown had been a blight upon the dignity of the legislature, citing multiple polls that showed public opinions of Congress worse than toenail fungus, hemorrhoids, and zombies.


In yet another poll - The Public Policy Polling survey found that Americans prefer witches and hemorrhoids to Congress as a whole, according to USA Today.

Toenail fungus is 41 percent more popular than Congress. Dog shit beats legislators by 47 percent and jury duty is widely preferred by 73 percent. Forty seven percent of people polled would prefer a zombie apocalypse over the GOP lead House of Representatives.

Considering the number of polls of late, and the general disgust of conservatives - with the overwhelming numbers showing "very unfavorable" - how many more does it take before a critical mass of revolt occurs towards the conservative?

Maybe if this country had a modicum of tenability, this polling trend, this downward spiral, would lead the to the American Taliban tanking completely.

One would think that these polls would cause the Right Wing Nut Job to turn apoplectic.

As we have seen of late, voting has consequences, severe consequences.

What's the best way to prevent us from being held hostage every six weeks? Vote these RWNJ's who put us in this mess out of office. Democrats currently have a lead over Teahadists in 17 swing districts, and it just so happens that 17 seats is all the Democrats need to take back the house.
