OKAY THE HEADLINE OF THIS NEWSWEEK PIECE ON TOM COBURN kinda tips the editors’ hand, but the reporting gets one key bit right — the role of Porkbusters as incubator for the Tea Party. That’s something that a lot of reporters, who keep asking me “where were the complaints about spending under Bush?” keep missing, though often when you mention Porkbusters they’ll say “oh, yeah, I forgot.”

UPDATE: Wow, that was fast — they’ve changed the headline from “Tea Party Turncoat” to “Dr. Maybe.” You can still see the old one in the URL, though.
