Just garden variety lies and smears today. I wish I could bring you some inspired lunacy, but the wingnuts must be resting their limited intellects these days.
Erick Erickson, Red State: "The GOP will not help the Democrats pass health care reform because passing health care reform will mean destroying the country. And that is not hyperbole, that is a fact."
Really, Erick? It's not hyperbole to suggest that reining in out of control insurance companies would destroy the country? Really? Because, you know what? I think it is "hyperbole," or in plainer words, one more great big Republican lie. So what do you think of that, jerk? Huh? I'm talking to you, bud.
Victor Davis Hanson, Pajamas Media: "Is Tom Hanks Unhinged?"
A vital question for our right wing political class. Once we have devoted several weeks to debating this question, I am sure they will get back to work on our nation's problems, right?
Jim Hoft, Gateway Pundit: "White House: We’re Happy to Have 2010 Elections About Our Unconstitutional, Abortion-Funding, Power-Grabbing, Racist Health Care Bill"
Grow up, Jim. You're making yourself look like a moron.
Richard Rahn, Newsmax: "Jobs Bill's Minimum Wage Would Hurt Black Teens"
Like you really care, asshole.
Tim Dunkin, Renew America: "Why I don't call them "liberals"
Because you have a whole list of bigger smears and lies to hurl at them, like 'communist' and 'jihadist.'
World Net Daily: "Would you believe 1 million to attend Christian concert?"
Thomas Sowell, Town Hall: "In a swindle that would make Bernie Madoff look like an amateur, Barack Obama has gotten a substantial segment of the population to believe that he can add millions of people to the government-insured rolls without increasing the already record-breaking federal deficit."
Actually, the Congressional Budget Office said that. You see, it's actually true, so selling the American people on that wouldn't really count as much of a swindle. Understand now? Listen, I have a lot of respect for Barack Obama, but when it comes to swindling, Obama doesn't even come close to the kind of persistence and talent that you guys show every day.
Phyllis Schlafly, Town Hall: "Texas Kicks Out Liberal Bias From Textbooks"
e.g. Thomas Jefferson. They threw him out of their textbooks. Take that, liberals.
Erick Erickson, Red State: "Will Congress Lose Afghanistan Like It Lost Vietnam?"
No, because our military lost Vietnam, not congress. Just like the British military lost America. The local people really didn't want them there, so they kicked them out. I know you guys are so macho that you can't deal with it, but that's what happened. Congress really wasn't over there shooting at the Vietnamese people. Trust me on that one.
Erick Erickson, Red State: "The GOP Leaders Speak: John Boehner and Mitch McConnell have an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal. They are making the case that Obamacare will raise costs and add more bureaucracy."
"Making the case" as usual, Republican speak for "lying."
And here is the most spectacular right wing historical delusion of the day:
Stephen Green, Pajamas Media: "Keynes legitimized fascism by giving liberal democracies license to tax, spend, and borrow in the name of political expedience."
Right. You know what, Stephen? You need to grow up too.
Jim Hoft, Pajamas Media: "Stupak: Dems See ObamaCare as “Their Opportunity to the Change Law” to Allow Abortion Funding"
You know what, Bart? You have some real obsessions there. Maybe you need a few sessions with a specialist. You know your health care coverage will pay for it. And they won't even make you get an abortion.
David Limbaugh, Newsmax: "During the height of the Cold War, some feared the communists would take over the United States without firing a shot. Could it be that nearly a half-century later, we're on the verge of that becoming a reality?"
No, David. You can come out of your basement now.
Astute Bloggers: "IS GENESIS 12:3 WHY THE US MARKETS DIDN'T TANK UNTIL SEPTEMBER?"
No, I really don't think so. I just bet that there is some other explanation for the market crash. Of course you'd like to believe that God did it, because you can't stand the idea that Bush and Cheney, and your beloved Saint Ronnie caused the market to crash. Unfortunately, God doesn't really interfere in the stock market that much.
