With All Due Respect to a Sack of Hammers

These guys are seriously unspoofable:

I’m actually kind of pissed off that Ayers did not also tell her that Obama is a muslim, was born in Kenya, and was sworn in on the Koran the second time behind closed doors with Chief Justice Roberts.

It’s like some fucked up version of peter pan and where “clap louder” comes from. If you do believe and clap loud enough the tinkerbell du-jour will come back to life and all of your wildest dreams will come true.

    The Irony of Satire
    Political Ideology and the Motivation to See What You Want to See in The Colbert Report
    Heather L. LaMarre
    The Ohio State University,
    Kristen D. Landreville
    The Ohio State University
    Michael A. Beam
    The Ohio State University
    This study investigated biased message processing of political satire in The Colbert Report and the influence of political ideology on perceptions of Stephen Colbert. Results indicate that political ideology influences biased processing of ambiguous political messages and source in late-night comedy. Using data from an experiment (N = 332), we found that individual-level political ideology significantly predicted perceptions of Colbert’s political ideology. Additionally, there was no significant difference between the groups in thinking Colbert was funny, but conservatives were more likely to report that Colbert only pretends to be joking and genuinely meant what he said while liberals were more likely to report that Colbert used satire and was not serious when offering political statements. Conservatism also significantly predicted perceptions that Colbert disliked liberalism. Finally, a post hoc analysis revealed that perceptions of Colbert’s political opinions fully mediated the relationship between political ideology and individual-level opinion.

    An entire group of people so fucking stupid they think Colbert is on THEIR side.

    Bush: ‘Our Long National Nightmare Of Peace And Prosperity Is Finally Over’


    Bush swore to do “everything in [his] power” to undo the damage wrought by Clinton’s two terms in office, including selling off the national parks to developers, going into massive debt to develop expensive and impractical weapons technologies, and passing sweeping budget cuts that drive the mentally ill out of hospitals and onto the street.
    During the 40-minute speech, Bush also promised to bring an end to the severe war drought that plagued the nation under Clinton, assuring citizens that the U.S. will engage in at least one Gulf War-level armed conflict in the next four years.

    http://www.thedailybeast.com/b.....e-blogger/

    The far-right fever swamps have been fantasizing for weeks that Bill Ayers wrote President Obama’s memoirs. According to Ayers, they’re living the “twilight zone.”
    Let’s put this one to bed right now.
    Far right sites have been spreading a post around today by blogger Anne Leary, who wrote that she ran into Obama acquaintance and 2008 election albatross Bill Ayers at an airport. Leary writes how Ayers, unprompted, unleashed a long-winded confession confirming one of the more absurd conspiracy theories floating around the fringes: that Ayers secretly authored Obama’s bestselling memoir, Dreams From My Father.”
    I e-mailed Ayers to see if he could shed any light on the story. His response:
    “You’ve all lost your minds,” he wrote. “Best of luck in the twilight zone.”
    That sounds simple enough. Already some of the bigger conservative bloggers, including National Review Online’s Jonah Goldberg and Hot Air’s Allahpundit have indicated that they don’t take Leary’s story too seriously, especially given that Ayers has a long history of deadpan responses along the lines of the one she described, as the Washington Independent’s David Weigel reports. With any luck that should be the end of things. But then again, the “death panels” and the birthers’ fantasies about Obama’s nationality are still in orbit, way out there in the blue.

    Ayers Dreams of Obama [Jonah Goldberg]
    I am not sure what to make of the story that Ayers has now admitted to writing Obama’s autobiography. If it pans out, that is to my mind a very big story. Stay tuned. But I do think I should revise my earlier pooh-poohing of Jack Cashill’s effort to prove the Ayers-Obama connection. A while back, a close friend of mine (and a pretty famous person in NR land) harrangued me about how I didn’t give Cashill’s argument enough attention or consideration and that it makes a pretty persuasive case. This friend then walked me through it for a while and I was impressed. I’m still not sure what the truth is, but whether this latest story pans out or not, I figured I should at least withdraw some of my, uh, pooh-pooh.

Very similar to how they believe that deep down inside–at Truthiness HQ–Colbert actually means all those whacky things silly liberals laugh about.

    It also dovetails quite nicely with yesterday’s creation of “the “McNaughton.”

    Silly wingnuts Bill Ayers is famous for his quirky sense of humor and his “hilarious” “Kill your Parents” “Joke“?

    COLMES: When you said at one point your philosophy was kill all the rich people, break up their cars and apartments, bring the revolution home, kill your parents, that’s where it’s at, was that a metaphor?

    AYERS: Of course. It was a joke and it was an extreme statement by a 20-year-old, and it was kidding, and of course, it was taken even that way at the time. If you read “Fugitive Days” you’ll see, not a manifesto, and not a history and not a — even an autobiography. What you’ll see is a memoir, a literary memoir, I hope, of somebody — a kid like me finding himself in a place like this. But it’s not a defense, but it does try to capture some of that irreverent kind of off-the-track lunacy.
