I'm having a little internet problem, but I thought I'd whip out something in the limited window I have here. I want to note that I have, over the last year, cut down on the number of sources for Wingnut Wrapup, because right wingers follow their leaders, even when picking their own variety of insanity; consequently they all pretty much spew the same garbage. I think I have gone a little too far, so I am going to add some "award winning" (i.e. particularly offensive) blogs to my list. I'll keep you posted. Anyway, here's today's load of rubbish:
Michelle Malkin, Town Hall: "Internet Access is Not a Civil Right"
Not when it stands in the way of some rich person to make a whole lot of money, anyway.
Janice Crouse, Town Hall: "Childhood Obesity and National Security"
The Republican party today- for obesity, against security. Sounds about right to me.
Floyd and Mary Beth Brown, Town Hall: "New Stimulus Will Damage Recovery"
Floyd and Mary Beth? Is that like Bonnie and Clyde? Well, here are some other articles that these economic geniuses might like to consider writing: "Eating- the sure way to guarantee that you starve," "Don't breathe- it only lets the air out of your lungs," or maybe "Do what the Republicans say- it's failed every time we've tried it for the last hundred years, so just by the laws of probability, it's got to work this time, right?"
Jim Hoft, Gateway Pundit: "Sunday Night Surprise… US Senate UNANIMOUSLY Passes the Food Safety Bill...GOP Abandons Tea Party–Senate Democrats and Senate Republicans UNANIMOUSLY agreed tonight to give the government more power over the food industry.
Are you freaking kidding me?"
The abomination- the Senate voted to protect our food supply. How dare they? And I couldn't agree with Jim more that this is a slap in the face of the teabaggers, who sure as hell didn't elect Republicans to protect people. Not if they aren't rich, anyway. They'll pay for this.
Jim Hoft, Gateway Pundit: "She Can’t Help It… Nicolle Wallace Attacks Sarah Palin Again: She Has “Multiple Flaws” & “Obvious Deficiencies”
How can this monster claim that Sarah Palin has deficiencies? Sarah Palin is perfect. She is a new American saint, whose every act comes right from God, and who cannot posess any inadequacy. How dare this woman Wallace impugn the perfection of Sarah Palin? After all, didn't someone once say, "We have all fallen short of the glory of God, and Sarah Palin?"
World Net Daily: 'Tron' tells spiritual story of Satan and salvation"
And if you buy that one, maybe you'd like to read my 7,000 word dissertation on "Snakes on a Plane- a Monument of Moral Philosophy"
Denis Prager, Town Hall: "What Do Men Want?"
Really, I don't think we need Dennis to explain that to us. As if he would have a clue.
And here's today's best wingnut paranoid delusion:
Astute Bloggers: "The repeal of DADT passed because the USA was blackmailed by the source of Wikileaks: they told the feds that they would leak THE BIG ONE if it didn't pass this session...THERE ARE NO COINCIDENCES!"
There may be no coincidences, but there sure are a lot of stupid jackasses in the world, huh?
Ann Coulter, Town Hall: "Scrooge was a Liberal"
Scrooge- a greedy, old, white, rich, well-connected businessman who was filled with fury at the notion of doing anything for the poor- the very definition of a liberal. Do these people say thing like this just to train their followers to believe whatever they're told?
Mike McDaniel, Pajamas Media: "Iran Just Shipped Missiles to Venezuela. A massive security threat just blossomed, and you'd be hard-pressed to find an MSM or administration official who cares."
Maybe they're the same missiles that Ronald Reagan shipped to Iran in the first place. None of you guys thought that was a security threat. Funny thing, huh?
Town Hall: "New GOP Wave Pushes Pro Growth Agenda in States"
And exactly how do they intend to accomplish that?
"Having won big in the fall elections, Republicans preparing to take over statehouses around the country are proposing to cut corporate taxes, weaken union clout and rewrite laws on discrimination, whistle-blowers and injured workers to the benefit of employers."
That's pro growth alright- growth of the wealth of the rich. As for the rest of us, keep your mouths shut and don't get sick, or you're screwed.
Bob Owens, Confederate Yankee: "Sure, She Says For Us to Diet...but why do Michelle Antoinette's actions always amount to "let them eat cake?"
What the hell is that even supposed to mean?
And Now, a notable achievment in the art of "if Congress gives you lemons, make lemonade:"
Bryan Fischer, Renew America: "If a homosexual signs up now, he's stuck with the whole magilla. Go to your superior officer now and say, hey, I'm a flaming homosexual, I hate the army, let me out of here, the superior officer will say, tough darts, those days are gone. You're stuck with us now, Nancy-boy.
So, who's sorry now? They enlist, they're stuck with the whole program just like everybody else. In other words, they had preferential treatment and special privileges, a status and privileges and an exit strategy denied to their honest and straight counterparts. And homosexuals just bargained it away...Bottom line: be careful what you ask for. You just may get it."
I don't think it's possible to make Bryan look any more stupid and vicious that that, so I'll just leave it there.
Moe Lane, Red State: "The *true* John Conyers scandal...Background: back over Thanksgiving weekend John Conyers III (the son of Rep. John Conyers) reported a theft of computers and concert tickets from the car that he was using. The problem? John Conyers III was using the car unlawfully: it was leased to his father’s Congressional office as an official vehicle, and Conyers was not using it in an official capacity...The true scandal is that we’re only hearing about this now."
Corruption Democratic style- Conyers let his kid use the car. The outrage! Throw him in jail!
Enough. Good bye.
