The EPA's findings on carbon dioxide earlier this week came as a surprise to few. And the timing, in light of Copenhagen, couldn't be better for the Administration (sheer coincidence, we're sure).

In a sign of bad news for both political parties, a new Rasmussen Reports “generic ballot” poll shows “Democrats attracting 36% of the vote. The Tea Party candidate picks up 23%, and Republicans finish third at 18%. Another 22% are undecided.” At the same time, the generic ballot question without the “Tea Party” option continues to show a substantial GOP advantage.
