Wingnut House Idols
From 2Millionth Web Log

Link. To call it batshit insane is an insult to the genuinely batshit insane...
Newt's Gone Off His Meds Again
From 2Millionth Web Log

Cross posted at First Draft

Something I find sadly informative re: Newt's latest 'intellectual' flatulence is the response from the political press, which is to assume that this dessicated creep is saying something newsworthy.

Not two weeks ago, this same Newt Gingrich demonstrated quite clearly that he was and remains an ass and buffoon, using the public airwaves to throw a tantrum about remarks made by Nancy Pelosi...remarks that turn out to be "probably right."

But the political reporters either have the attention span of gnats...or the mentality of gossip columnists. Actually, I apologize--to gossip columnists, who make no claim towards serious journalism.

Oh, and I see Karl Rove's doing his thing, snottily dismissing Judge Sotomayor as a "schoolmarm," which, come to think of it, is roughly akin to the insults hurled at Kathleen Blanco in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and the flood. Figures.

Childish insults hurled from people with the mentality of twelve year olds...Republican Party 'leadership.'

A Little Formaldehyde With That Drywall?
From 2Millionth Web Log

Interestingly, it's a Republican State Senator--Julie Quinn--who's sponsoring a bill (.pdf) that allows citizens to sue contractors who supplied toxic drywall for construction projects.

An argument against unfettered free trade AND restrictions on legal remedy/lawsuits. Not normally Republican talking points...but I'll give credit where it's due.

Epitomizing Wingnuttia...
From 2Millionth Web Log one James Inhofe, who thinks that what the Supreme Court REALLY needs is a non empathetic white male.

Meanwhile, Tom Tancredo thinks Sotomayor is the racist, because...because...she's one of them, I guess.

And Mike Huckabee just can't help himself. Maybe they DO all look alike to him...and to Pat Buchanan, who has long since passed his expiration date/viable shelf life. Buchanan hasn't so much aged as congealed into a sort of bizarre, leathery fossil.

Memorial Day
From 2Millionth Web Log

Oh, and just to get something off my chest, speaking personally but perhaps some of y'all can relate. As someone on the liberal/left side of the political spectrum I don't "hate America," but I most certainly despise ignorant, sadistic wingnuts...wingnuts like Dick Cheney (and "chip off the block" Liz), certified cretins Karl Rove and Newt Gingrich, etc., and so on.

Unlike most wingnuts, I don't think of the men and women serving in our military (and I'm the child of a career military officer) as disposable soldiers, mere fodder for wars of choice.

And I don't think playing rhetorical games with matters of vital importance for peoples' lives even begins to resemble a viable political strategy. I think it stinks.

Wingnuts are NOT America, and they have no right to claim America as theirs. They're deeply sick and/or sickening individuals who seem to enjoy either capitalizing on the misery of others, or wish to make others as miserable as they are.

Anyway...Here's to those men and women in the military who gave quite a bit more to their country than wingnuts ever will.
