    BLANKLEY: Breaking the partisan fever

    Sunday on "Meet the Press," Colin L. Powell blamed divisive, poisonous Washington politics on the media and the Tea Party. The essence of the retired general and former secretary of state's argument: "Republicans and Democrats are focusing more and more on their extreme left and extreme right. And we have to come back toward the center in order to compromise. ... The media have to help us. The media love this game, where everybody is on the extreme. It makes for great television. ... So what we have to do is sort of take some of the heat out of our political life in terms of the coverage of it, so [members of Congress] can get to work quietly. ... But the Tea Party point of view of no compromise whatsoever is not a point of view that will eventually produce a presidential candidate who will win."
