I thought I was going to devote this edition of Wingnut Wrapup to the Republicans' screaming bloody murder over Obama's mild comments about the Supreme Court last week, despite their years long history of attacking the court with death threats, demands for impeachment, incitement to violence and any other low thing they could think of. And boy did they deliver. But, you know what? It was all so tedious and predictable that I couldn't be bothered. So let's just move on to a few of their other quaint notions:
Let's lead off with another version of the great lie of modern Conservatism:
Derek Hunter, Town Hall: "Progressives are the embarrassed children of fascism who changed their name solely because Hitler used it. But a name change is all it is."
Well, first off, Hitler didn't use the term Fascism, except when he was talking about Mussolini. That's because, unlike Derek, he knew what it meant. But then, who can expect a right wing jerkoff like Derek to care about the truth on any topic. Second, sorry, guy, the Nazis were right wingers like you. You know damned well that they were, so shut up already.
Larry Klayman, Renew America: "Obama has shown his true colors; he is a racist, black-Muslim sympathizer and Jew-and-white hater himself. For this, with all of the whoredom on display in the last weeks, he wins the prize for the biggest and most evil whore of all."
Don't you love civil discourse? Damn those Democrats for refusing to meet the Republicans half way, and agree that, although Obama is a whore, maybe he's not quite the most evil whore of all time. That would be the bipartisan thing to do.
Town Hall: "Romney eager to shift focus to Obama"
Shake that etch-a-sketch, baby. See how it works out for you.
Jeannie DeAngeles, American Thinker: "Barack Obama, Stand-Up Comedian"
Well, no one is ever going to say that about Mitt. Think about it, Jeannie.
Ann Barnhardt: "Guys, Obama didn't even write his own syllabus. The prose is sophisticated, the grammar is flawless, and the punctuation is good"
Well, at least we know none of you guys wrote it. Ann continues:
"I think Obama was (and is) so stupid, and such a fraud that he had to have someone else prepare his course for him, including what little bit of lecture he delivered in those four class sessions. Who might have prepared a course syllabus and light lecture notes on constitutional race issues with an emphasis toward education and race? Bernardine Dohrn. As in Bill Ayers' wife."
Oh, that makes sense. Bill Ayers' wife. Man, these guys have a fertile imagination. I bet Bo is really Bill Ayers' dog.
And now the incoherent right wing comment of the week, from the above post:
"my fear is the between time of another to take over
that between time obama still holding the ruling hand this would be the time to create roits call on mashall law ship people out to fema camps have the epa take over land water ect and phonie court charges for all these DC ers who have permitted him to do all this crime they will be the 1st to see whats on those fema camps in those RR cars id be very afreared if i was you and take this time to grew spines and balls and charge him for all his crimes NOW cause even if we get to vote another elleceted doesnt mean they will ever get to become president
obama can use that between time to do all the more damage and still remain the reins under mashall law"
Well, what can you say?
Michael Ledeen, Pajamas Media: "Don't get distracted by all the fancy tonguework by Obama."
And here I thought he couldn't say a sentence without a teleprompter. Michael has somehow intuited that Obama doesn't really believe what he says; unlike, say, Mitt Romney who really, truly believes global warming is a hoax and Obama is deliberately destroying America.
Now, A message from the fantasy planet that Republicans live on:
Stephen Green, Vodkapundit: "How’s that Dow looking these days? Not so good, actually"
Bush: Dow down 7,000 points- no problem. Obama: Dow up 7,000 points- it means nothing. How dumb do they think people are? Vodkapundit explains his point:
"Here’s the problem. Obamanomics consists of putting a boot on the economy’s throat, then endlessly whacking it upside the head with a giant bag of money while shouting, “Produce, you greedy millionaire!”
Of course, Republican economics consists of putting a boot on the economy's throat, robbing it blind and leaving it to die in the gutter. Much better, I guess.
Stephen Green, Pajamas Media: "Santorum Has Lost — And I Can Prove It"
Lost what- his mind? Anyone can prove that.
Jim Hoft, Gateway Pundit: "Liberal Media FAIL: Only 32% of Non-Blacks Say Zimmerman Is Guilty"
Naturally, the liberal media has failed because the United States is full of racist fuckheads.
Malcolm Unwell, American Thinker: "Romney is the real rebel, a rebel against rebellion, if you will. Beneath their veneer of scorn, liberals are quaking in their boots."
God, the stupidity. A rebel against rebellion. What does that even mean? Let's just hope these people keep thinking this way for a few more months.
Jim Hoft, Gateway Pundit: "Obama Plays Kissie-Kissie With Groups Who Shoot Women in the Head & Beat Them in Public"
That would be the Taliban. Apparently, playing "Kissie-Kissie" with them is the Conservative translation for killing them. From the comments to Jim's sage observation:
"every judge, politican or person in private life that supports the implementation of sharia law in the united states is a liberal."
Except for the Republican party, of course, that insists that Muslim employers have the right to make their employees follow Sharia law in their health care.
Right wing political logic of the day:
Astute Bloggers: "SPECULATION: THIS IS MERELY A GAMING SCENARIO: IF OBAMA THREATENED TO KILL CHELSEA, THEN MIGHT HE THREATEN A JUSTICE OF THE SCOTUS TO SAVE OBAMACARE?
BETTINA VIVIANO CLAIMS THAT IN 2008 OBAMA CRONIES THREATENED TO KILL CHELSEA TO GET THE CLINTONS TO BACK DOWN FROM USING THE BIRTHER ALLEGATIONS AGAINST OBAMA.
IF THIS IS TRUE - REPEAT IF, THEN IT IS EQUALLY POSSIBLE THAT THESE SAME CRONIES MIGHT THREATEN TO KILL ONE OF CHIEF JUSTICE ROBERTS' CHILDREN IN ORDER TO GET HIM TO VOTE FOR OBAMACARE.
OBAMA AND HIS COMRADES KNOW - (BECAUSE OF THE DEATH THREAT) - THAT THEY WILL WIN A 5-4 DECISION, AND BY LAMELY ATTACKING THE COURT THEY SUCKERED THE GOP INTO SAYING "WHATEVER THE COURT SAYS IS FINAL."
"If this is true."
And of course, the Astute Bloggers aren't trying to convince you that Obama threatened Chelsea Clinton's life- oh, no, they wouldn't do that. But what if? Huh, what if?
And let's go out with a biggie: Clarence Thomas: "Let’s face it, Q&A during oral arguments isn’t helpful."
It interrupts his nap.
'Bye for today.
