Today was what passes for a good day in America:
No one was arrested for threatening to kill a Democratic Senator
No militias were captured plotting to murder policemen with bombs
No teabagging governors threatened to secede from the nation, or announced a holiday to celebrate slavery.
Sarah Palin and Michelle Bachmann kept their mouths shut today.
That's about as good as you get these days. In fact the biggest scandal on the right seems to be that Obama claimed to be a White Sox fan, and when asked to name his favorite White Sox player, he couldn't think of one, and instead talked about his youth in Hawaii. You should have heard Sean Hannity and Dennis Miller, their voices dripping with sarcasm, ridiculing him for this crime and claiming that it proved that he was a girly man.
Of course, it was a lie. What he was really asked was what Sox player was his favorite as a child.
Obama replied that he grew up in Hawaii and never got into the White Sox until he moved to Chicago as an adult. But that was the best they could do.
There was virtually nothing that I saw on the web for a Wingnut Wrapup. Here's the best I could do:
Newsmax: "Legal expert: Obamacare 'absolutely' unconstitutional"
What "legal expert?" Some guy we've never heard of, who works for the industry-financed Heritage foundation.
Matt C. Abbot, Renew America: "Bishop: Catholic Church among 'safest places' for children"
Oh, sure it is, Matt. Boy, you guys will lie about anything. Of course, you only care about children before they are born. After that, when the government helps them, that's just redistributing the wealth.
Jeff Lukens, Renew America: "2008 market crash should be investigated...Did an unwritten partnership exist between George Soros and Barack Obama? Could Soros, through Obama, be seeking a "velvet revolution" in the dismantling of our nation as he has done elsewhere? These questions need further investigation. With the Alinskyite tactics employed by Team Obama, none of this is beyond the realm of possibility."
Well, I have wondered how long it would be before someone on the right would accuse Obama and the Jews (I'm sure you know the words "George Soros" are code words for "Jewish Conspiracy") of deliberately causing the stock market collapse.
Ronald Reagan and George Bush (both of them) caused the stock market collapse by doing away with the laws that stopped the stock marked from crashing ever since the last time the Republicans did away with similar laws in the 1920's. That's the truth, and it will always be the truth. It's funny to hear you guys yelling, "it's been over a year, when are you going to stop blaming Bush," when you are still blaming Abraham Lincoln for busting up your slavery racket.
Jim Hoft: "Will Hillary Clinton Blame Obama Like She Blamed Bush For the Mining Tragedy?"
Probably not, Jim, and here's why: Barack Obama did not appoint the chief operating officer of Massey Energy, the company that owns the mine where the explosion occurred a couple of days ago, to be his head of mine safety enforcement. Bush did. Get the difference there?
