Breaking: Violence Erupts Over New Movie

PPPS (New York)—Rioting and violence has apparently erupted around the globe over the pending release of a new movie today.

Although reports are spotty, our alert social media director, #PoundSign Pete, intercepted this tweet, which was later removed.

We are researching this story and will bring you updates as they develop.

PPPS Hits Viewer Milestone - Prize Awarded

PPPS (Littleton)—The Pundit Pete blog reached an historic milestone today, surpassing 100,000 total page views. 

Our CEO and dear leader, Pundit Pete, offered to personally escort the lucky 100,000th visitor and a guest on an all-expenses-paid trip to Hawaii.

Unfortunately, our social media director, #PoundSign Pete, dozed off at the exact moment the ticker turned over, and we were unable to identify the lucky visitor.

We are hoping that Pundit Pete will select a staff member instead, to accompany him on the trip.

In any case, Pete promised to send a postcard.

Tea Party Launched On This Day Five Years Ago

PPPS (Littleton)—Our loyal reader Citizen Pete, reminded us that it was on this day, February 19, five years ago, the Tea Party movement was launched with an on-air rant from Rick Santelli.

Citizen Pete also reminded us that the Tea Party movement was initially a response to President Obama's first major legislative initiative, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act or "Stimulus Bill", which was passed by Congress on February 13, 2009 after only being available for review by American citizens for a few hours in the middle of the night.

The bill was quickly dubbed the "Porkulus Bill" by citizen activists and a protest was organized in Seattle on February 16, 2009 by a local blogger named Liberty Bell. The protest was promoted nationally by Michelle Malkin and a follow-up protest was quickly organized to coincide with President Obama's visit to Denver to formally sign the Stimulus Bill on February 17, 2009. Citizen Pete got to that protest in Denver just as it was ending, and vowed to come back if there was ever another.

And the rest is history, except for the part that is yet to be written.

A Note to Karl Rove

Karl Rove & Pundit Pete 2012
PPPS (Littleton)—One of our loyal readers, Citizen Pete, pointed out an article about Karl Rove posted at the Breitbart Big Government web page, and responded with a note of his own. And, although we don't normally acknowledge any news items from competing news organizations, we found Citizen Pete's response so compelling that we made an exception.

Here is the original article by Tony Lee at Breitbart:

And here is the note we received from Citizen Pete: 
Dear Pundit Pete:
You need to pay attention to this article I spotted at Breitbart.
I know you and Karl Rove are great pals, but you may want to rethink that relationship.
Ever since he started diss'n the Tea Party, his fortunes have gone south.
Maybe you could send him this sign to help straighten him out.
Your friend,
Citizen Pete

Our Chief White House Correspondent, Political-Beat Pete, who attended the State of the Union speech as a guest of former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, summed up the president's plan succinctly:
