Wingnut Wrapup

While we wait for Conservatives to spend a day and a half or so throwing off their inhibitions and get down to smearing Nelson Mandela, here is some of the usual, garden variety lies and hatred that they specialize in:
Katie Kieffer, Town Hall:  "Barack Obama, is not forwarding health; he’s forwarding cancer. He’s on “one more campaign” to pitch ObamaCare, which is quickly metastasizing into ObamaCancer. Where’s our hope for a cure?"
Where is our hope that malicious liars like Katie will just shut up, already?  Obama is forwarding cancer by giving people health care.  That makes so much sense.  I guess people have stopped paying attention when the Republicans throw out all the other scare words they can think of- Communist, Islamofascist, Satanist- so they are trying the last scare word they can think of.  Will people fall for this idiotic smear?  Sad to say, if history is any indication, a lot of them will.
Katie Pavlich, Town Hall:  "Impeachment Over Obamacare?"
It's a high crime to give people health care.  Didn't you know that?
Amanda Munoz, Town Hall:  "Why Ted Cruz Fights"
Because he is a narcissistic, self serving liar who thinks he is ordained by God to run the country.  That's my guess.  The real question is how anyone could be stupid enough to fall for him.
Joe Kovacs, World Net Daily:  "Meowsa! Do our pets go to heaven?"
Apparently not unless they have accepted Jesus Christ as their personal savior, if Joe is any authority on things like that.   Tough luck, pet owners.

Steve McCann, American Thinker:  "The Schizophrenia of Barack Obama...He has adopted a pre-meditated schizophrenic personality wherein he comports himself as an apologist and appeaser on the international stage and a narcissistic autocrat at home."
Well, there you go.  How can Obama be a weak, cowering cur overseas and a vicious tyrant at home?  There's only one possible answer to this conundrum- he's a schizophrenic!  Of course!  Why didn't we notice it before?  I mean, it couldn't be that both of these right wing characterizations of him are malicious lies.  No, that couldn't be it.  He must be mentally ill.

Listen, I don't have much patience with this kind of idiocy today, but I couldn't resist repeating this remark of Steve's:
"Barack Obama, determined to become the Muslim world's best friend, has instead unleashed the dogs of war in the Middle East."
He's unleashed the dogs of war.  As opposed to, who was it now- oh yeah, the last Republican President, who unleashed actual war in the Middle East, costing us three trillion dollars and killing a few hundred thousand innocent people for nothing.  I guess the dogs of war are way more scary than that.  Probably not that many of them are Corgis. 
 Not that frightening, really.

Frederic U. Dicker, New York Post:  "‘Bizarre behavior’ could be risk to Christie White House run"
 Yeah, on rare occasions he acts sane.  None of that allowed on the Republican side of the aisle.
David Limbaugh, Town Hall:  "Website, Schmebsite, Keep Your Eyes on the Big Ball"
After a month of screaming about the website, now that it turns out to be fixed, well, it just wasn't that important after all.  Can we have the part of our lives back where we were forced to listen to them scream about this bogus issue?
Dennis Prager, Town Hall:  "We Live in a World of Lies...Remember the terrible murder of Matthew Shepard in Laramie, Wyo. in 1998 -- tortured, beaten and left hanging on a fence to die -- because he was gay?  It turns out that Matthew Shepard's murder had nothing to do with his being gay.  As early as 2004, the ABC News program "20/20" broadcast (to its credit) a denial by both murderers, Aaron McKinney and Russell Henderson, that the murder had anything to do with Shepard's being gay.   It was, they both claimed, a robbery gone bad."
Of course they couldn't be saying this because they want a lower sentence than they'd get for a hate crime.  Because all robberies involve beating people and hanging them on fences.  Well, here's Dennis Prager, the most unashamed liar the right has ever produced (and that's quite a feat) to hop on the George Zimmerman bandwagon of denying the obvious reality of the most brutal crimes when they are committed by right wingers.  Good work, Dennis.  Way to follow your marching orders.
Mike Shedlock, Town Hall:  " Battle for $15 minimum Wage; Should Companies Pay Workers More?   People want the jobs. Here's the deal. If you don't like the job, then don't take it."
How about this for why companies should pay workers more:  If you don't we'll kill you.  After all, these companies don't give a damn about us- why should we care about them?  Once we decide to destroy them if we don't get what we want (which is exactly the way they treat us) maybe their attitude will change.  Short of that, don't hold your breath waiting for them to act like human beings.
Dan Spencer, Red State:  "Say Merry Christmas and annoy a Liberal"
Give it a try, Dan.  Get back to us when you find one that is annoyed.  If this is your first salvo in the War on Christmas this year, we're in for a pretty weak spectacle.  Oh well, a few more weeks and you can start maundering on about the War on Valentine's Day.
World Net Daily:  "'Legal personhood' sought for chimps...Never mind that, unlike an unborn child before birth, chimpanzees are not actually human persons."
They're a lot closer to being human than corporations are.

And now, here is a helpful suggestion:
James Pethoukis, National Review Online:  "there is a better way to help workers than the minimum wage, and everybody knows it...a better proposal is actually wage subsidies, government wage matching"
Yes, what a brilliant idea!  We let obscenely rich people like the Walton family continue to pile up billions in wealth by starving their workers, and then the taxpayers make up the difference!  What a creative new way to steal from the middle class and give the proceeds to the rich!
John Ransom, Town Hall: " Roosevelt we know now was dying when he attended the Yalta conference. Obama, on the other hand, has been dead from the neck up for a long time."
I love serious political analysis, don't you?
Jonah Goldberg, Town Hall:  "Not A Good Enough Obamacare Fix"
It wouldn't be good enough for the people at Town Hall if it cured cancer and brought about a thousand years of world peace.
Andrew Klavan, PJ Media:  "A Startling Take on the Beats...Has a new generation grown skeptical of the Kerouac, Ginsberg, and Burroughs mythology?"
Oh God, now they are going to try to kick the beatniks around.  I guess this is supposed to have something to do with how evil Democrats are, but I suspect this is one smear that is going nowhere.
Hugh Hewitt, Town Hall:  "Hillary Is The Nominee, So Let The Defining Begin"
You mean, let the smearing begin, Hugh.  Sorry, guy, you missed the bus on this one.  Smearing Hillary started twenty years ago and never stopped.
Jonah Goldberg, Town Hall: Liberals Are Culture War Aggressors...Maybe someone can explain to me how, exactly, conservatives are the aggressors in the culture war?"
This interesting notion from the guy who brought us a whole book about how the Nazis were liberals.  So, take it for what it's worth.  By the way, no one can explain this or anything else to Jonah, because he is brain-dead.  Just to make that clear.
David Lawrence, American Thinker:  "Why Obama Never Fires Anyone"
Okay already, what is it, David?  He's too kind hearted?  He promised their mothers to give them job?
"Obama is surrounded by potential snitches."
Oh, okay.  That makes sense.  David continues:

"When I was in jail, everyone claimed he wasn't a snitch.  But if you ever checked the paperwork you'd see that all of these guys had all rolled over on someone..."

Oh, I see, David.  You're generalizing about Cabinet Secretaries from the people you knew when you were in prison.  Listen, here's a hint:  That sort of thinking only works with Republican politicians, most of whom have either been in jail or are just waiting their turn.
