Fox News contributor and Daily Caller editor-in-chief Tucker Carlson added to the ongoing Republican civil war by calling conservative nonprofits “parasites” on conservatism who have consumed “literally billions of dollars” and “achieved virtually nothing in the last thirty years.” Carlson also remarked, “If there’s a more useless group of people in the world, I’m not aware of it.”   Since Mitt Romney’s defeat last November, Republicans have been feuding among themselves over the future of the party and conservative ideals. The fight exploded when Karl Rove and his allies at American Crossroads announced plans to, in the words of  The New York Times , ”recruit seasoned candidates and protect Senate incumbents from challenges by far-right conservatives and Tea Party enthusiasts.”  Conservative media figures conservative   groups  like  FreedomWorks  have hit Rove over the project

As Hurricane Sandy bears down on the east coast, Breitbart.com is reporting  that President Obama’s “proposal for the upcoming budget sequester would cut nearly $900 million from the Federal Emergency Management Agency, including disaster relief, food and shelter, and flood management at both the federal and state levels.” This is absolutely false: the  report  they characterize as the White House’s “sequester proposal” is actually a legally required estimate of how scheduled automatic budget cuts will impact discretionary spending, and inveighs strongly  against  allowing those cuts to take effect.  The debt-limit deal passed in 2011 (with the support of  over two-thirds  of House Republicans, including GOP vice presidential candidate  Paul Ryan ) required both parties to find a way to cut the deficit by $1.2 trillion, or face  steep, automatic cuts across the board  starting in January 2013 — the sequester.
