Wingnut Wrapup

I am afraid it's time to go over the rules of Wingnut Wrapup, for those conservatives who still don't understand. Listen, guys, to earn the coveted honor of a place here, your posts must incorporate lies, belligerence, and above all a suitability for quick ridicule. Just one of the three won't do! Come on now, many of your friends have mastered the skill. If you're still confused, look at Pam Atlas or Joseph Farah for guidance. They are the best.

Now, onward:

Greg Hengler, Town Hall: "MSNBC Anchor Says Thought Of Newt's 2012 Run Is "Scary"

For Republicans, maybe. For us Dems, it would be a dream come true.

Bob McEwen, Town Hall: "Obama Turns On Freedom Around the Globe"

Which apparently consists of Honduras, Iran and the United States. That's it. Where did all those other countries go? My son was in Japan a couple of weeks ago. I'm sure glad he got back before it vanished.

Jonah Goldberg: "The God Who Bleeds"

Apparently that's Obama. Jonah has this to say:

"Well, now he's the god who bleeds, and once you're the god who bleeds, it's hard to get the divinity back in the tube, as it were."

You know, Jonah, Jesus bled on the cross. Hard to get the divinity back after that, I guess.

The Employment Policies Institute: "Pay hikes hurt workers"

Ha ha. Nothing stings like a raise, huh? Who might these guys be, I wonder:

From Sourcewatch: "The Employment Policies Institute (EPI) is one of several front groups created by Berman & Co., a Washington, DC public affairs firm owned by Rick Berman, who lobbies for the restaurant, hotel, alcoholic beverage and tobacco industries."

Okay. Now we know.

Vicki E. Murray, Pacific Research Institute: "School Choice Would Satisfy Hunger for Change "

Who needs all the rest of it, the health care reform, the action on the environment, the new emphasis on consumer safety, the stimulus, the rejection of military threats as our only answer to the world's problems. No, all we need to be happy is school vouchers.

A few of Pacific Research Institute's Contributors, in case you are interested: Altria, Chevron, Texaco, Cypress Semiconductor, Exxon Mobil, Microsoft, Pfizer, PhRMA, SBC (now AT&T), Verizon.

Erick Erickson, Red State: "Senate Democrats Discourage Hiring Poor and Disabled Workers"

By passing the minimum wage hike. Right you are, Erick. The bastards!

Pam "I'm Stupid, so Sue Me" Geller, Atlas Shrugs: "Obama's Stimulus $$ Funds Horror Porn"

Actually something that got funding from the National Endowment for the Arts. I never saw it, but I'm willing to bet that it couldn't really be described as "porn." By a sane person, anyway.

Stella Lohman, Renew America: "As a fully engaged Christian, Sarah's decisions come from an inner compass — her faith in Judeo Christian values and a personal relationship following Jesus Christ."

Yes, Jesus is the one who tells her to lie every time she opens her mouth. Jesus is the one who tells her that it's a good idea to pander to the worst side of human nature. Jesus is the one who tells her to preach the virtues of hate and greed. Blame him.

World Net Daily: "Obamacare called 'euthanasia bill"

By who? Who called Obamacare a euthanasia bill? Well, a guy named Matthew Staver, the founder of an organization called "Liberty Counsel."

And are they a reliable source? Here's a little fact that might help you decide how you feel about them:

From Wikipedia: Liberty Counsel has been criticized for intolerant and excessive tactics in pursuit of their causes including threatening legal action against a public library for awarding certificates involving Harry Potter books, because "the certificate of witchcraft endorsed a particular religion".

Okay, I'll keep that in mind.

Phil Kline, American Spectator: "Obama Appoints U.S. Attorney Who Contributed to His Campaign"

The horror! Obama is engaging in the most gross corruption! He appointed a Democrat to a Federal position. How Dare He!

Matthew Vadum, American Spectator: "The Franken Meltdown Begins"

Here it is, the beginning of the end for Al:

"Franken, who was seated talking to someone else, did not stand when (T. Boone) Pickens said hello. Instead, Franken began to berate him about the billionaire's financing of the Swift Boat ads in 2004."

Right on, Al, and I'm only sorry that you didn't punch him.

Larry Kudlow, National Review Online: "It’s a New Bull Market.. Resilient capitalism is pushing back against Obama"

Every day the market goes down, it's Barack's fault. But if it goes up, it's in spite of him. Sure, Larry.

You know, I'm surprised that this guy still has the nerve to stick his head out of his front door.

The Astute Bloggers: "RECESSION EASING - NO THANKS TO PORKULUS!"

Do these guys know that their caps lock key is stuck on? Anyway, they continue:

"AND ONLY 10% OF THE STIMULUS HAS BEEN SPENT."

So, let's give the rest of it back to the rich. Hey, knuckleheads, if 10% of the stimulus has eased the recession, don't you think it might be a good idea to let the rest do its work? No, of course not. Because then the public might discover that, unlike your conservative bull, liberal ideas actually work! And then, where would you guys be?
