The Sam Adams Institute, benefactors of Houston based investigative startup “Texas Watchdog”, has produced a handy chart tracking the evolving sentiments of conservative pundits towards the Tea Party since October of 2009. The result is a fascinating visual of all the sound bites we’ve been hearing for the past year. Not surprisingly, tax day 2010 was a high point for conservative solidarity, the Delaware primary the biggest buzz kill. Basically, every pundit’s all over the place. Charles Krauthammer could have seriously confused himself were he not a seasoned professional - the line tracking his movements dips and crests throughout the year. Karl Rove is more into long stretches of obstinacy followed by sudden and violent turns in direction. Pundits are a limber bunch. - Michael Meyer
