Let's just start right off with one of the most preposterous lies you have ever heard in your life, told by a has-been hatemonger in a mortal struggle to get that right wing spotlight back:
Ann Coulter, Town Hall: "A Glowing Report on Radiation: There is, however, burgeoning evidence that excess radiation operates as a sort of cancer vaccine"
Right. Radiation prevents cancer. What snide remark could ever be equal to that? And we thought that denying global warming and claiming that Obama was born in Kenya were the biggest lies they could tell. We were wrong.
Michael Hammond, Red State: "Jared Lee Loughner was Barack Obama’s perfect gun purchaser -– right up until the moment when he started killing people.
Remember when, in 1968, we were told that, if felons and other undesirables were prohibited from having guns, gun crime would stop? Loughner was not a felon. He was, likewise, not an illegal alien, a deserter, or a fugitive from justice.
Remember when, in 1994, we were assured that, if gun purchasers were “checked out” against an FBI database, gun crime would stop?"
Actually, I don't remember that. Sorry. Of course, I don't actually remember the Easter bunny coming either, and he is equally real. But you can't argue with the logic of Michael's line of reasoning, can you? I mean, laws making murder a crime didn't stop O. J. Simpson, so the rational thing to do is just make murder legal. And after all, it's illegal to cheat on your taxes, but that doesn't stop a lot of rich people from hiring experts to find new ways to steal from the government, so why not just do away with income tax on the rich altogether? Oh, wait a minute, the Republicans already are in favor of that. Oh well, at least we can all take comfort from the fact that Barack Obama is personally responsible for the alleged failings of a law passed when he was 7 years old. Some things you can always count on.
Erick Erickson, Red State: "Unlike Wisconsin, Tennessee dealt decisively with union protestors who tried to disrupt a committee meeting for, of all things, not taking up legislation. The legislation was pro-union and did not come up in committee. Consequently, several activists began a protest. They got hauled off to jail."
Take THAT, you liberals. So much for your right to petition the government for redress of grievances. Erick, there's a "president" in Libya who would like to shake your hand.
Charlie Martin, Pajamas Media: "Fear the Media Meltdown, Not the Nuclear One...Relax: this is not another Chernobyl or Three Mile Island, and I'll tell you exactly why."
Because I got paid to say so. That pretty much sums it up.
Charlie Martin is an award winning nuclear engineer. Oops, no he's not. He's "science and technology editor" of one of the most idiotic right wing blogs on the internet. Funny how many right wingers that we though were experts in nothing but being an ass have turned out to be fully qualified nuclear scientists.
Jim Hoft, Gateway Pundit: "GOP OFFICES SHOT UP IN DC...This must be more of that new civility we were promised. The DC Republican offices today were shot up. DCist reported, via Instapundit: Paul Craney, the executive director of the D.C. Republican Committee, got quite the surprise when he came into the office today — someone had shot out the windows of the party’s headquarters at 1275 K Street NW with what appeared to be small caliber pellets. “All I can say is that whoever did it either is targeting glass windows or the D.C. Republican Committee,” said Craney in an email this afternoon..."
Well, I guess that proves it. We have never heard of a case of an unknown person with a pellet gun shooting out a window. So it must be Democrats on a rampage.
Alan Caruba, Renew America: "The EPA is a most wicked assemblage of alleged scientists and political appointees who sole purpose is to economically burden the industrial, commercial, and agricultural sectors of the nation in every way possible."
But why, Alan? Why would they do this? I can tell you why people like you do the opposite: they get paid by the rich to lie. Alan continues to reveal the monstrous abuse of power that the EPA is up to today:
"WASHINGTON — In response to a court deadline, today the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) proposed the first-ever national standards for mercury, arsenic and other toxic air pollution from power plants."
Mercury and arsenic...why, what could be less toxic than mercury and arsenic? Alan eats them every day for breakfast. The self serving evil of these EPA guys, to try to deny us our mercury and arsenic!
But wait, there's more:
"if these emissions are such a dire health hazard, why did it take eleven years for the EPA to take action?"
Uh, maybe because corrupt Republicans fought every step of the way to let corporations poison us? That's my guess. Personally, I'd be happier without the arsenic. How about you?
Marie Jon, Renew America: "The Obama administration is corrupt and evil."
Well, let's just get it right out there, Marie. And why is Obama corrupt and evil?
"President Barack Obama exhibits very little to none of the biblical teachings of the Judeo-Christian faith. To this day, he has not become a member of any of the Christian churches in Washington, D.C."
Of course not- he's a Muslim. He was going to join a mosque, but he flunked the bomb-making test. That guy can't do anything right.
Tim Dunkin, Renew America: "The left owes us all an apology"
For what, dare you ask?
"We could start by demanding an apology from the commies and socialists for how they have systematically enslaved entire generations of American blacks into a hopeless, dead end existence as wards of the welfare state."
Well, maybe you guys should go first, Tim, and apologize for having systematically enslaved entire generations of American blacks into a hopeless, dead end existence as slaves. What you think about that? Of course, Tim is not done with his maundering:
"The Left also owes us an apology for the crime that has plagued America since the late 1960s... the Left has the blood of hundreds of thousands of murder victims, and the tears of millions of friends and family members, on its hands...But it doesn't stop there — we have more bones to pick with these people. How about the fact that the reason we're paying such high prices for energy — on everything from the gas we pump to the electricity that heats our homes — is a direct result of left-wing environmental wacko influence on our nation's energy policies?...What's ironic is that, despite their supposed zeal to "save the environment," the lefties are also responsible for the greatest environmental catastrophe in recent memory — the BP Deepwater spill...Really, these are only just the tip of the iceberg. I could literally write a book about the crimes that the Left has committed..."
Yeah, yeah, we get you, Alan. The left is responsible for everything bad since the dawn of time. I bet you didn't know that the Pharaoh and Genghis Khan were leftists.
Joseph Farah, World Net Daily: "What would Jesus cut?"
Listen, Joseph, if he heard the things you say in his name, he'd cut his own throat.
Jim Hoft, Gateway Pundit: "So Much For That Cairo Speech… Obama Administration Votes To Bomb Libya...Barack Obama promised the Muslim World A New Beginning in June 2009. "
That's right, yesterday he was a terrorist-coddling wimp for not bombing Gaddafi, today he's a two faced liar for agreeing to do it. Never let a crisis go to waste, that's Jim's motto.
Jim Hoft, Gateway Pundit: "Figures. Leftie Tractor Driver at WI Protest Had No License"
Jim Hoft, Gateway Pundit: "11 Michigan Leftists Slammed to the Floor, Arrested, Frog-Marched From Capitol Building . This is what democracy looks like"
In your world, Jim. And aren't you proud of it.
The Astute Bloggers: "PETER KING'S HEARINGS FELL PREDICTABLY SHORT"
They weren't racist enough.
Well, let me leave you with this brilliant suggestion. Maybe Ann Coulter and Alan Caruba could get together and publish Dr. Coulter's Arsenic and Plutonium Diet. You too can look just like Ann in six short weeks!
