Wingnut Wrapup

Here's the crop of ignorant loons for today:

Jeb Bush, CNN Political Ticker: 'I don't know' if Obama is a socialist"

Well, don't worry. The rest of us do. Just for your information, he's not. Haven't been following the news much lately, since your brother wrecked the country, huh? Too embarrassing, I guess.

Senator Jim DeMint: "Part of what we’re trying to do in “Saving Freedom” is just show that where we are, we’re about where Germany was before World War II where they became a social democracy. You still had votes but the votes were just power grabs"

Oh come on with the Hitler stuff already. Haven't you made a big enough fool out of yourself?

By the way, if there is anyone out there who thinks there is any truth in this disgusting lie, please take a minute to read my post from a few days ago, about what the early days of Nazi rule were really like.

Gateway Pundit: "Firefighters Will Testify Against Racist Sotomayor at Senate Hearing....Republicans will call two New Haven firefighters to testify in the confirmation hearings of Sonia Sotomayor next week"

Firefighters. Oh, great. They will undoubtedly have a great deal to contribute on the subject of constitutional law. Way to go there, Republicans. Now I see why you needed more time to prepare for those hearings- in order to line up the best possible witnesses. By the way, if you are still looking, I know a certain phony plumber who would be more than happy to do his civic duty by offering his scholarly opinion at your "hearings."

Arnaud de Borchegrave, Newsmax: "Israel Faces Bombing Iran Alone"

Or else, Israel faces not bombing Iran along with everyone else. It's their choice.

Lisa Fabrizio, Renew America: "Compelled by mysterious forces to fill their bylines and airspace with negative commentary, they seem eager to jump on the 'dump Sarah' bandwagon and label her a "quitter" and worse."

Mysterious forces. Well, mysterious to you, Lisa, and your readers. It's called the truth. Look into it some time.

Just as a little example, when you "quit," it isn't really that mysterious when people call you a "quitter." See, you're starting to understand it already. Or not.

Lloyd Marcus, Renew America: "When will white America be off the hook for sins of the past?"

When it stops committing those sins in the present, buddy. And you're not helping.

Joseph Farah, World Net Daily: "Maybe you think I'm "obsessed" about finding Barack Obama's birth certificate."

What? Obsessed? Sixteen posts in one day? Oh, I don't know. Maybe you are just really concerned.

Regina Hertzlinger, National Review Online: "Government-run health-insurance markets restrict competition, do not control costs, discourage entrepreneurial efforts, and cause consumer dissatisfaction.

Of course they do the exact opposite of all that, but Regina gets paid to say this. Good work, Regina. You earned your thirty pieces of silver today.

Clifford D. May, National Review Online: "Two years ago at this time, few in the foreign-policy establishment considered a victorious outcome possible in Iraq"

And they were right. Now, go back to your hole and gnaw on some bones for a while. When you come out in a few years, that nice Mr. Obama will have made it all better. Nighty night!

Hey, have you actually bothered to read anything (at all) about the New Haven firefighers' case or are you just offering an entirely uninformed opinion?

Track-A-Crat,

Thanks for leaving a comment. If you haven't been here much, you probably haven't figured out yet that this blog is not about uninformed opinion, but about cheap shots. And, if I do say so myself, I've gotten pretty good at that. Please, don't scare me and put me off my game.

Seriously, my point has nothing to do with this particular case. I am disturbed by the Republicans' taking one of their most important duties and turning it into a childish circus. These firemen have absolutely nothing to add to the consideration of Judge Sotomayor. Their presence is nothing but a meaningless and boorish stunt. Do you really think that these firemen have anything meaningful to say about constitutional law?

Green Eagle,

Heh, guess I should've read a few more of your posts - my site is similarly snarky.

But...

Those firefighters were all denied promotions they'd earned solely because no African-American scored highly enough to also gain promotion.

That's insane. It's depriving New Haven residents of a better functioning fire department and it (once more) sends the message that hard work doesn't pay off. What should promotion be based on other than merit?
