Dave Weigel has the backstory to the above tweets.
The GOP morans and ratfvckers have gone nucking futz over Bo Bergdahl’s release, and of course you haven’t reached Peak NuckFutzing until Alex Jones checks in! Per NYMag‘s “Guide to Bowe Bergdahl Conspiracy Theories“:
Bergdahl was a U.S. spy
While Bergdahl had been in captivity for five years, U.S. officials said they had to act quickly because his health and safety were suddenly in jeopardy. InfoWars suggests Bergdahl’s life was in danger because he was an undercover U.S. agent whose cover was blown when the White House accidentally released the name of the CIA’s highest-ranking spy in Afghanistan last week. “Bergdahl may have actually been an embedded intelligence asset who allowed himself to be captured in order to infiltrate the Haqqani network, yet was ultimately endangered by the Obama administration’s blunder,” according to the site…
Also per NYMag, would you be even a tiny bit surprised that “Republican Strategists Are Helping Bowe Bergdahl’s Critics Get Their Stories Out“? Misinformation wants to be free, dude! Yeah, me neither.
Speaking of inoperative statements, Gus at LGF shares a “Flashback! 1/2014: PJ Media Encourages Readers to Sign Petition to Free Bergdahl “By Any Means Necessary”.
And for truly magisterial pigbladdering of the idiots among us, one must never overlook Mr. Charles P. Pierce:
Over at the intersection of Unemployable Boulevard and Legacy Hire Way, the kidz and their recess monitors are busily fashioning a yellow ribbon into a noose for Bowe Bergdahl, whom they congratulate for being home so that they can calumnize him, his family, his service, and the president who got him here…
[Emphasis by Mr. Pierce.]
Apart from archiving the ongoing decline & fall of the 27%, what’s on the agenda for the evening?
