I think the wingnuts are so infuriated today about the idea that a black man is allowed to be a professor in this country, that they didn't have much time to maunder on as usual. Sorry, I've run out of patience with reading their nonsense. After all, it is Saturday. Here we go- the best of a bad crop.
Bill Kristol, Washington Post: "So on health care, I’d be surprised if the president changed any minds, because he never seriously tried to address criticism of his proposal on the merits."
Bill, when you guys come up with some criticisms on the merits, instead of a bunch of lies and smears, get back to us and we'll deal with it. I promise.
Jonathan Garthwaite, Town Hall: "ObamaCare Struggles, Dow Soars "
Aha! The Dow has gained 39% since early March. We can't admit that it could be Obama's doing. Let's think up some sort of lunatic explanation where he's the bad guy. That'll work.
Little Pammy Geller, Atlas Shrugs: "The low state of the world is a fact but so are great Americans that will fight tooth and nail to stop the coup. American is being tested in a way she never has. Treason in power. "
The Coup, Pammy? Honduras? No, you mean here? As in, a Democrat got the most votes in the election- COUP! TREASON!
Confederate Yankee: "Is Henry Gates A Crook?"
It's too soon to know for sure if Gates has done anything illegal...."
But that sure doesn't stop us from accusing him of being a crook, does it. I mean, evidence, schmevidence, right?
And here's the Wingnut Historical Delusion of the Day:
Professor Paul Rahe, Power Line: "I am old enough to remember a time in which conservatives, such as Richard Nixon and Henry Kissinger, were inclined to think the advances made by the Soviet Union irreversible and to believe that we should pursue a policy of preserving as much as we could in the face of communism's approaching victory."
Ah, yes, you remember when Nixon and Kissinger were giving up to the communists. That must have been before you moved to this planet.
Gateway Pundit: "Congressman Will Introduce Resolution Demanding Obama Apologize to Cambridge Police Officer"
That has a big chance of passing.
Gateway Pundit: "Two Republican leaders in the House of Representatives are confirming reports that the health care restructuring bill the House is currently considering promotes euthanasia"
And torturing kittens and picking on the kids in third grade who wear glasses. Well, here's their evidence:
"Section 1233 of the House-drafted legislation encourages health care providers to provide their Medicare patients with counseling on ‘the use of artificially administered nutrition and hydration’ and other end of life treatments,'" the pair say."
Nutrition and hydration. Sounds like murder to me. Really, what kind of inadequate liars is the Republican party hiring these days, anyway? What happened to the glory days of Karl Rove, when Republicans really knew how to lie?
Ralph Reed, Newsmax: " Bring Youth Back Into GOP"
How, Ralph, how? It sounds like a good idea, but short of forced mass lobotomies, how do you think you are going to do that?
Sher Zieve, Renew America: "Dems ensure illegal aliens included in ObamaCare and other atrocities"
Sher, please: I couldn't bring myself to read your article, but I am wondering. What atrocities do Dems have in store for illegal aliens?
And besides, you're a wingnut. I'd think that atrocities for illegal aliens would be a good thing for you.
David Swindle, American Thinker: "Republicans can create a coalition of the Right and the Center. And they can do it without abandoning their principles."
Got to agree there, guy. They don't have any principles to abandon.
And last, but not least, some good news for a change:
Newsmax: "Pollster John Zogby tells Newsmax that the Republican Party could be "teetering on the brink" of extinction"
Oh boy. We've still got a chance in this country.
