President Obama’s speech to the kids is now available, and it just makes the right-wingers look absolutely absurd. In a sane world, this would be the tipping point for our members of the media, and they would simply stop taking these folks seriously.
My personal favorite wingnut excuse for the crazy was offered up by the increasingly amusing Malkin:
It’s not the speech, it’s the subtext.
It’s the radical activism of the White House Teaching Fellows who designed the education guides tied to Obama’s speech.
*** Update ***
BTW- Who do you all think will be the first wingnut to find a hidden coded message in the text of the speech? The odds on favorite for that kind of lunacy would be Glenn Beck, but then again the one lunatic who pushed the “Republican car dealers is being punished!” nonsense would be a good bet, too, as would that clown who freaked out over dijon mustard. There is just so much quality amateur wingnuttery going on these days that there really is no safe bet anymore.
Now that I think about it, these guys freaked out for two days over the condiment he put on his hamburger. We should have realized a speech to schoolkids would give them the vapors.
