    While it's true that the MSM is hardwired to tilt Republican every time, there is another factor that drives media coverage or lack of coverage.

    Part of the reason the Tea Party gets swooned over by the DC press is that they actually broke with Republicans and have moved the debate rightward - even mounting primary challenges and getting elected at several levels of government. Can anyone here imagine a parallel thing happening on the Progressive side? Actually breaking with the Democrats?

    Ryan's budget likely gets more attention because he's the closest thing the House Republicans have to a budget standard bearer. For the Democrats, that's Obama, period. Very sad.
