Your blogger

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.

Continuing from yesterday's blog - where Rachael Maddow picked apart Ken Cuccinelli piece by piece - last night was no different, as Maddow skewered Cuccinelli, literally roasting him for his less than ethical ways while being Virginia's Attorney General and then eviscerating the Cooch for the "Coup" attempt over Transvaginal Bob.

While the State of Virginia was concentrating on Virginia's disgraced Governor Bob McDonnell's "gifts" from Star Scientific CEO Johnnie Williams - and soon-to-be-ex-Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, who also took gifts from Star Scientific -considered a never-before used tactic/section of the Virginia Constitution to force McDonnell to be declared unfit for office.

That's right readers, as first reported by Larry Sabato, Kyle Kondik and Geoffrey Skelley of the University of Virginia Center for Politics, and further reported by Politico, The Cooch and Transvaginal Bob had a particularly acrimonious relationship - all hands in the Star Scientific goody bag aside - all stemming mostly from the Cooch's irritation towards McDonnell's preference for Lt. Gov Bill Bolling to be the 2013 GOP Gubernatorial nominee.

As the Star Scientific scandal heated up, Cuccinelli presupposed that McDonnell would be federally indicted and prepared to make a dramatic break from McDonnell by declaring him "unfit for service" and therefore, which seems to be a bit ironic - would put Lt. Governor Bolling as Virginia's acting Governor.


It is truly great fun for me to watch the GOP/Tea Party eat there own, specifically when its two of the most deviant Conservatives to ever hold office in the state of Virginia.

To often the case with these right wing nut jobs, Republicans take a worse beating from irony than Wile E. Coyote does from Acme products.
