The Republicans won a majority in the House just two days ago, and as Stephen Colbert pointed out on last night's Colbert Report, they've already accomplished so much, from making a profit on TARP to saving the auto industry. In fact, some say the party started turning things around months ago. It's all part of the GOP's new philosophy, Trickle Back in Time Economics.
The Colbert Report airs Monday through Thursday at 11:30pm / 10:30c.

The War Room's Alex Pareene on this week's scandal of the decade, the Obama administration's insidious attempt to bribe Rep. Joe Sestak — with a non-paying advisory position to Bill Clinton — into dropping his Senate campaign against Sen. Arlen Specter…
"This scandal is even worse than when the White House bribed Joe Biden into getting out of the Senate to clear the way for his son. Or when they bribed Janet Napolitano into letting the crazy wingnuts take over Arizona. Or when Obama bribed Rahm Emanuel himself into giving up his House seat to be the president's official Bribery Czar."
This is a total game-changer, I'm tellin' you.

Poor Arlen Specter. It's like a guy can't up and switch parties when it's politically convenient for him without being accused of betraying his principles! Who would have guessed that old Arlen could possibly lose today's Democratic primary, just because his challenger, Rep. Joe Sestak, had the audacity to have been a Democrat for longer than 20 minutes?
While the voters of Pennsylvania spend their lunch breaks in middle school auditoriums across the state deciding Specter's political future, we pause to pay tribute a man who truly stands up for what he believes in…

In an breathtaking turn of events, Democratic Rep. Joe Sestak seems poised to steal the Democratic nomination for Senate away from sitting "Democratic" Sen. Arlen Specter…
A new poll Wednesday showed Pennsylvania's Democratic primary race for U.S. Senate too close to call, as U.S. Rep. Joe Sestak erased what had been a decisive lead for five-term Sen. Arlen Specter five weeks ago…
Sestak had trailed Specter by 21 points in a survey by the same pollster released April 8.
The fact that something like this could happen to a Democrat of Specter's standing must be terrifying to the entire party. I mean, this guy has a history with party spanning back… several months. At least!
And, really, who better exemplifies the Democratic motto: Capitulation at All Costs (So Long as It's Still Polling Well)!?
