Our conservative friends seem to have awakened from their lizardlike torpor of yesterday. The lunacy was on overdrive today, so there was a lot of competition for the few spots available here at Wingnut Wrapup. Here are the winners, and again, to the losers, keep up the good work. You know what you have to do to end up here- learn from the masters:
Bill Steigerwald, Town Hall: "I've hated Social Security since 1964....That's when the federal government first started swiping a portion of my paycheck under the pretense that it would put the money aside for my retirement years."
I recently signed up to get my retirement benefits at age 62."
I see. So I guess it wasn't a "pretense" after all, then. Enjoy your golden years, Bill.
Rich Galen, Town Hall: "It is just possible that the anti-Ahmadinejad forces in Iran misread the words they heard from Mr. Obama. It is just possible that they interpreted them as a signal to step up their public opposition to the government of Iran."
Rich, it's also just possible that Obama actually is the Transylvanian Lizard King of Doom. Luckily for all of us, as I'm sure you will agree, there is no actual evidence to support either position. So, you guys can go back to worrying about the Bilderburgers and the black helicopters, and I can take a nap. Bye now.
Bruce Bialosky: "Why Don’t Democrats Support Democracy?
"...since the time of Reagan and then reinforced by George W. Bush, the Republicans have clearly been on the side of spreading Democracy throughout the world. Mr. Bush spent his entire second inaugural speech on this topic, and it will remain as one of the hallmark commentaries on the fight between despots and democrats."
"Spreading democracy," as in paying right wing stooges to try to overthrow their elected governments, as in Venezuela or Nicaragua, or just invading them outright as in Iraq. That is sooo noble.
And that speech by Bush. What a masterpiece. It will ring down the ages, like "I regret I have but one life to give for my country," or "give me liberty or give me death."
Grow up, Bruce.
Independent Womens' Forum: Another Way to Reform Healthcare
i.e. by not reforming it. Good thinking there, girls.
Gateway Pundit: "President Panty Waist insists that VP Cheney's policies have made America less safe."
Don't we just know that any opinion piece that starts out "President Panty Waist" is just going to be chock full of useful information?
Gateway Pundit: "Chavez Echoes Obama-- Asks World to Respect Wishes of Iranian People"
Really, doesn't everyone in their right mind want the world to respect the wishes of the Iranian people? I guess that if I saw an article titled "Chavez Echoes Obama-- I really Like Ice Cream" that would prove that Obama is really horrible, because Chavez likes ice cream too.
Guy, you need to grow up too.
Selwyn Duke, Renew America: "... von Brunn isn't a rightist....In fact, he is quite the opposite of a rightist many ways, as Bob Unruh reports at WorldNetDaily: The Moonbattery blog revealed von Brunn advocated the socialist policies espoused by Adolf Hitler and used Darwinian theory to support his anti-Semitism."
Yeah, like cockroaches, this idiocy won't go away. The guy must have been a leftie- I mean, he liked Hitler, right? I guess I made my point there, sucker, huh, huh?
Roger Hedgecock: Only Dems should pay blacks reparations
Hey, Roger: Good idea. And Republicans can pay for the Iraq war, right? I'll take that deal.
Barbara Simpson, World Net Daily: "Drape flag in black or invert it?"
Barbara is trying to decide how to celebrate July 4th. Knock yourself out, Barbara- why not both?
Joseph Farah, World Net Daily: "Maybe, just maybe, (Obama) doesn't really have any problem with what the mullahs are doing in Iran. And maybe, just maybe, he couldn't care less about the sacrifices being made in the streets of Iran by those freedom fighters. "
Maybe, Joseph. Maybe the mullahs have his Kenyan birth certificate and they're blackmailing him. Did you consider that? And maybe.....no, wait, I'm not going back to that Transylvaian Lizard King of Doom thing.
Tom Gross, National Review Online: "So were the neocons right all along? "
No, Tom. Whatever else we have to worry about, that's one nightmare we can pretty well cross off the list.
But, thanks for bringing it up.
Hans A. von Spakovsky: "What Is Obama Trying to Cover Up?"
We know Obama is a monster of evil, but we can't find anything bad that he has done. So, he just must be covering something up. And we need to find it really soon, because we're getting so confused keeping straight all of the lies we have had to invent about him in the meantime.
