I'm pleased to deliver my Morning Briefing to you each weekday morning. It's designed to help conservatives do news prep for their day, the Morning Briefing will give you a snapshot at the big news the mainstream media is ignoring and the real news on stories the mainstream media is mis-reporting. You'll start your day ahead of the curve.

RedState On the Radio
Today from 6:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. ET, Erick will be filling in on the radio in Macon, GA. You can listen live here and call in to the show at (478) 742-0940.
On Wednesday Glenn Beck had his best day ever. And it wasn't just Glenn Beck's best day, he crushed everyone else on cable.
The kicker? Rush Limbaugh was his guest.
Solidarity baby! We'll crush the left even as they cry boycott. By the way, did you know that a number of the advertisers they claim are boycotting Beck have never even advertised on his show - that's like saying I'm boycotting Timbuktu because I've never had an occasion to go there.
And he wants to make sure that the pharmaceutical companies understand that, too. The House Energy Chair intends to retroactively remove what Waxman calls a 'windfall' involving Medicare D drug charges, and never mind what either the President or PhRMA thinks.
You know, this admission may have justified the entire town hall thing, right there.
Here's the quote:
"This is the answer from a doctor and a politician. Here's why tort reform is not in the bill. When you go to pass a really enormous bill like that, the more stuff you put in it, the more enemies you make, right? And the reason that tort reform is not in the bill is because the people who wrote it did not want to take on the trial lawyers in addition to everyone else they were taking on. And that is the plain and simple truth."
It apparently doesn't excite his interest either way.
This is actually worse news for health care rationing proponents than if Tester was adamantly opposed to public/government option; it demonstrates that not only is he indifferent to what many progressive Democrats consider to be a make-or-break part of the bill... but Tester thinks that he can get away with saying so in public. Which he probably can, at that.
