It's a curve ball and you've got to go with it," Costas chuckled during Read more [...]

Toni Lewis suspects tea party Republicans are "a bunch of people who probably need some mental health treatment." Politically speaking, the tea-party supporter in rural North Carolina and the Massachusetts liberal live a world apart. Who or what could get them thinking the same?
