Well, it's been a while. After a few days of manic lying to try to deny that Obama accomplished anything when he took out Bin Laden, and few more lies to explain away Obama's having crushed them on the birther thing, wingnuts have fallen into a deep depression. It is only with great difficulty that I have been able to dredge up this mediocre crop of contentious bilge:
"(CNN) – Sarah Palin has given few indications in recent weeks she is still actively considering a presidential run, but the former Alaska governor said Thursday she has the “fire in my belly” to mount a bid for the White House.
“I think my problem is that I do have the fire in my belly,” said Palin."
Try not eating Italian Sausage subs so close to bedtime, Sarah.
Bryan Fischer: "Muslims have been [inbreeding] for fourteen hundred years and because this is what Muhammad did, they always will do this, they will always defend it, they will always practice it. And this kind of inbreeding results in an enormous cost in intellectual capacity"
Look who's talking.
Debra Saunders, Town Hall: "As governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin "demonstrated many of the qualities we expect in our best leaders," The Atlantic's Joshua Green reports in a must-read story. "She set aside private concerns for the greater good"
She set aside private concerns for the greater good- would that be like when she quit the job that the Alaskan people entrusted her with, in order to fly around the country making $12 million a year? Of course, perhaps Joshua Green isn't as mendacious as we might suspect. Getting any government control out of Sarah Palin's hands is the greater good. Let her keep the $12 million, as long as she stays out of politics.
But wait- there's more:
"Green could not help but wonder what might have happened if Palin -- somehow as a running mate -- had been able to steer Sen. John McCain's presidential campaign"
"When McCain picked Palin, his campaign team thought the media would hail Palin as a fellow maverick, a moderate who could work with Democrats and avoided polarizing social issues"
Senility? Delusion? Drugs? We report-you decide.
Confederate Yankee: "Corps of Engineers to Flood Productive Farmland to Save Fetid Cesspool"
That would be New Orleans. I think he means because you-know-what-kind-of-people live there. Farmers, in Mr. Wankee's world, are all white. Mr. Wankee continues:
"if the Corps hadn't created the current system of levees and canals, nature itself would have been able to distribute the flood waters as God intended to make fertile cropland and a home for man and beast alike."
See, it's all the government's fault. Things would be so much better if the government would do nothing. Too bad Confederate Yankee didn't give us this idea a few weeks ago, so we could have saved a lot of money after God gave Alabama 200 tornados.
Newsmax: "Bachmann steps up to fill 2012 GOP void"
What is she, the fourth person to step up to fill the 2012 GOP void in the last month? First, there was The Donald, then Huck, then Newt and now Michelle bloody Bachmann. These days, they seem to last about a week before demonstrating themselves to be lying buffoons. Well, Michelle fits right in with that company. Let's see how long she can ride the pony. If not, we've got the Pizza guy coming next.
Wes Vernon, Renew America: "Yes, some children do lie"
No! Wes, next thing you are going to try to tell me that some dogs actually BARK! I'm not going down that slippery slope.
Doug Giles, Town Hall: "Can you imagine the consternation the ubiquitous uberliberal profs of our nation’s radical Left-leaning universities must have felt as they watched the students they’ve worked their butts off to brainwash dispense with said profs’ anti-American blather and instead shout for joy that the SOB UBL is now officially ODPF (one dead porn freak)? "
No, but I don't need to imagine the consternation that you right wingers felt. I've got about ten thousand web posts to prove it. Let me rephrase that: It's you right wingers that were driven to rage and denial when Obama got Bin Laden, not the liberals. It's you that can't stand the idea of American success, not us. Deal with that, liar.
Austin Hill, Town Hall: "Are Jewish Americans Undermining Israel?"
Yes they are. Particularly the right wing ones that sit here, ten thousand miles away, and do everything they can to manipulate Israel into one devastating war after another. As Usual, do the damage, then blame the liberals.
Leon Wolf, Red State: "Texas Becomes First State in 50 Years to Actually Cut Budget Spending"
After paying off their $17 billion dollar deficit with Federal stimulus money. Leon forgot to mention that.
And now a special Joseph Goebbels gold statue for fitting the most smear words in one paragraph:
Michael Oberndorff, Renew America: "It's necessary to make clear, though, that Obozo has never had an original idea in his life. He's a knee-jerk Alinsky Marxist, a greedy, two-bit community organizer who has been used and manipulated by others — e.g., billionaire George Soros, et al., the Chicago Democrat Mob, etc. ad nauseam. He clearly is a willing stooge, though, as they've rewarded him with riches and power, both of which he has ostentatiously abused with abandon."
Man, that's hot, even for Renew America. Sher Zieve had better watch out- a challenger appears.
And the jingoistic lie of the day:
Star Parker, World Net Daily: "The Ryan plan restores freedom, ownership and personal responsibility to center stage of entitlement reform."
"Personal responsibility." I.e. bankruptcy.
And the other jingoistic lie of the day:
Pat Boone, World Net Daily: "You cannot reduce debt by increasing it."
First of all, what does anyone think they are going to learn from the blatherings of a geriatric, drug-addled ex pop star? Anyway, I guess Pat has just established that no one in history ever made money by taking out a loan to start a company. I guess we'd better start taking Pat's advice by doing away with Wall Street, because that's what stocks are all about.
Wait a minute...no Wall Street? Maybe Pat's on to something after all.
