Wingnut Wrapup

Oh yeah, they're still here.  And even if Barack seems to be joining them, Green Eagle is still on the watch.  Here's today's selection:

Jim Hoft, Gateway Pundit: "Oops!… Obama Forgets the Coast Guard During Afghan Speech"

What an abomination!

Maybe this is the reason:  "Chief Petty Offi­cer Daniel Kinville and Petty Offi­cer 2nd Class Lau­ren...are the only two Coast Guard per­son­nel in Afghanistan."  Or maybe he just hates the troops.  We report, you decide.

Confederate Yankee Speaks the Truth:  "It is the height of hilarity that McCaskill and her fellow Democratic senators think that this vote (for middle class tax cuts) actually helps their image with the Tea Party-affiliated voters that drove so many of their allies out of office just over a month ago. It is cognitive dissonance on a massive scale."

It sure is, Confederate Yankee.  Because you and your self-destructive, racist teabagger friends are determined to destroy the country no matter what Obama does.  If he thinks anything he does is going to make them accept a black president, he really has gone off his rocker.

And now a lesson in rewriting History, the Republican Way:

Kevin Glass, Town Hall:  "Democrats Hold Meaningless Tax Votes, Hold America Hostage- Democrats have called the Senate back in session today for a pair of meaningless, sure-to-fail votes that will increase taxes."

Translation:  The votes are meaningless, because Republicans aren't going to do a God damned thing until we give trillions to the rich.  Democrats are holding Americans hostage by trying to give 98% of us a tax cut.  Republicans on the other hand are standing up for all of us by squandering our money on rich people.

Michael Reagan, Town Hall:  "Call it Treason:  If we had a president in the White House who understood that we are at war with a crazed faction of Islam, and was willing to act on that belief, there would be no question about how we should deal with people who give aid and comfort to the enemy -- they’d be tried for treason and when found guilty stood up before a firing squad. "

This refers to Julian Assange, head of Wikileaks.  Michael, how can I explain to you how idiotic this is?  Your father, who committed real treason when he illegally supplied the Iranian mullahs with two thousand missiles, got off scot free.  But rail on, jerk.

Lexington, Red State:  "Apparently some folks were upset by my suggestion yesterday that it wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world if Julian Assange were to find a small caliber bullet in his cranial cavity."

Adult foreign policy, Republican style.

Streiff, Red State:  "Erick and Russ Vought have posted on what appears to be an inclination on the part of the GOP caucus to let Obama have his treaty, essentially trading our national security for tax cuts and sacrificing our nation’s defense policy..."

Because it makes us less secure when we can inspect Russian nuclear facilities.  Even things that are in this nation's clearest self interest become insignificant compared to a chance to destroy Obama.

Jim Hoft, Gateway Pundit:  "CHINA BLOWS UP US CARRIER GROUP in Video at This Year’s Air Show"

In a video.  Jim, a couple of days ago, I personally obliterated a couple of innocent city-states in Civilization V. So, what are you going to do about that, huh, tough guy?

And now, the most pathetic attack on Obama today:

World Net Daily Exclusive:  "Obamacare challenge advances toward Supremes"

Translation into the language that the rest of us speak:  The challenge was thrown out by a lower court.  It "advances toward Supremes" because it was dismissed, and some wingnuts are going to waste more time and money appealing the decision.

Ed Lasky, American Thinker:  "Democrats give one more big favor to George Soros...Why would the Senate take up precious time in the lame duck session considering a food safety bill?

It must be to pander to George Soros.  It couldn't have anything to do with keeping people from getting sick.


How do I best explain this to you, O not-so-astute ones?  National health care systems don't cover foreign rich guys.  And believe me, it's not that much consolation to the tens of millions of Americans without health care that a Saudi sheik can get all the medical treatment he can pay for in New York.

Moe Lane, Red State:  "Big Wind looking for federal handout...The wind ‘industry’ is apparently looking for more federal aid - actually, no, there’s nothing apparent about it.  They want more federal aid...For the record: if your business plan requires - not benefits from; requires - an annual bailout from the federal government in order to function, then by definition you have a bad business plan.  Mostly because you are not actually in business; you are a parasite pretending to be a business."

Get the "Big Wind" thing?  Like, the people manufacturing windmills are just like "big oil."  And while we're on the subject, I guess according to people like Moe, it's okay to extort billions in giveaways from the government if your industry is already the most profitable business in the history of the world.

Pajamas Media:  "Political Correctness Kills: Study Shows How Terrorists Infiltrate U.S. Government...Consider Abdulrahman Alamoudi, the Muslim leader who most frequently visited the Clinton White House. Patrick Poole rightly describes Alamoudi as:

"The most prominent Islamic activist leader in America at the time, he had infiltrated the highest levels of political power. … [He was asked] by the Defense Department to establish the military’s Muslim chaplain corps"

Oh my God, the Muslim Chaplain Corps!  Our Democracy is Over!  While we're on the subject of "Political Correctness Kills," I wonder how many people have been killed by members of the Muslim chaplain corps.  It must be a number so huge as to have stunned Mr. Poole into silence, as he failed to mention any examples.

World Net Daily:  "Texas continues to lead way in gun silencer sales"

And we're so proud of them.
