Via the comments, one of the greats in the annals of right-wing nonsense:

An Obama presidency would signal the final salvo by the Left in the culture wars. Obama’s advance troops have already taken over our college campuses, have bound and gagged our conservative professors, have ravished our virgins, have pillaged our stores of wisdom, and have ensconced themselves in the thrones of power in deans’, presidents’ and department heads’ offices.

The victory cry is heard across the land in the cheers of Obama’s constituency on college campuses.

This has been going on under the very noses of the Republicans.

A lot is going on under your nose when your head is up your ass. I really have nothing to add to this piece, as it speaks for itself, but I will say this- we quite clearly have an early front-runner for this year’s Golden Wingnut Awards.

Cheering While Black

In a post called “Wild Savages Open Thread,” “Chicagoan” at No Quarter ask us to compare and contrast a sermon at TUCC and this YouTube video of people celebrating at a rally in Cincinnatti:

The caption reads: “Unrestrained and potentially violent Obama supporters at a rally in Cincinnati, Ohio.” He then goes on to describe all Obama voters as low information voters who rely on emotion.

My only question- now can we call these folks at No Quarter racist fucks?

And just like that, the post is gone before I got an expanded screen shot.


Whiny-ass-titty-baby Bill Kristol uses his valuable NY Times real estate to bitch about Obama not mentioning the military in his commencement address at Wesleyan last week.

I have to admit, I watched the speech, and I didn’t see that criticism coming. And if military service is so great (and I thought it was), how come Kristol never served? Or is that just for the proles?

I bet the NY Times sure is proud they chose Kristol. I think every great newspaper needs a full-fledged propagandist on the op-ed pages.

McClellan’s Rehab, Slower Than Expected

Captain Ed:

Expect all sides to redefine McClellan in order to either boost or reduce his credibility. To the Right, McClellan will have been the worst press secretary of modern times, and to the Left a man of extraordinary ability chased out of his job by Bush’s minions. The truth will be somewhere in the middle. When he left office, most people on both sides considered him a mediocrity at best. His status as favored punching bag for the hard Left can best be captured in the Keith Olbermann farewell McClellan received as he exited in April 2006. It will be particularly amusing to watch this fringe try to rehabilitate McClellan now.

Let’s see that rehabilitation of character that Ed seems to think is going to happen. Firedoglake:

For three years, Scott McClellan stood before the White House press corp and humiliated himself, saying things he knew were probably false or misleading, while pretending that by dissembling for his President he was serving his country. In now confessing his sins and spins, he still clings to the hope of redemption by saying, gosh, they meant well, even if they were all lying about everything.

No rehab there. Let’s try Too Sense:

McClellan has every reason to lie or twist events: making himself a sympathetic character helps him sell books and he wants to minimize the role he played in one of the most flagrant violations of the public trust by the office of the President in history.

Nope, none there either. Let’s try Steve Benen:

One can’t help but wonder, of course, if this is McClellan’s way of trying to save his own skin — as the Bush gang is condemned by history, McClellan doesn’t want to be associated with failure.

Of course, if he’d thought to speak up when it mattered, instead of after the fact, McClellan’s ability to make a difference might have had an effect. Now, it’ll sell books, but it’s a little late in the game.

Nope, no rehab there. Maybe the GOS:

Well, that’s one way to put it. Another might be to say that for three years he willingly distorted and lied about Iraq, about domestic spying, about secret prisons, about torture, and of course, about the White House role in the outing of Valerie Plame. Or he didn’t lie and, as the truth was revealed about these many issues, he chose to stay on and defend Iraq and domestic spying and secret prisons and torture and of course, the people who lied to him about their role in the outing of Valerie Plame. Which is it?

No mercy there, either:

What about the the Rude Pundit:

Hopefully, the book will tank, and McClellan will be reduced to blowing Hannity for nickels. Screw this obsequious pig-fucking son of a bitch, this grubby little man-whore, attempting to purge his soul of the taint and stench of death and sorrow while pulling in a buck or two. He’s not honorable enough to have fallen on his sword, rhetorically or literally. And he’s not even loyal enough to have shut the fuck up (at least an admirable quality in the abstract). He deserves a room in Hell lined with televisions playing his sneering statements of complicity on an endless loop while he’s forced to sit on a couch made of the bloated corpses of Katrina victims. Way too little, way, way too late, you miserable bucket of spooge.

That ain’t rehab in my book.

Even the libertarians are jumping on him:

According to press reports, McClellan says that the Bush administration lied to him about everything, all the time. Which sounds about right, though one gets to wondering either just how clever McClellan is or how dumb he is that it took him so long to figure that out.

No, Captain Ed, the fringe isn’t going to try to “rehab” this dick.

What will be funny is watching Bush sycophants attack him because he has dared to speak ill of W. That will be entertaining.


Apparently, over the week-end, Obama errantly said that is Great Uncle helped to liberate Auschwitz, when he actually liberated Buchenvald:

Obama’s campaign clarified the comments about the candidate’s great-uncle liberating Auschwitz, saying Obama was “mistaken,” and was referring to Buchenwald, not Auschwitz. “Senator Obama’s family is proud of the service of his grandfather and uncles in World War II – especially the fact that his great uncle was a part of liberating one of the concentration camps at Buchenwald,” said spokesman Bill Burton.

This, of course, sent the fact-checkers in the right wing blogosphere into hyper-drive– “Obama rewrites history” stated one, “Dumber than Bush, Dumber than Quayle,” stated another! It is true- this lack of vetting of great uncle’s stories of their military history is a serious, serious lack of judgment, and who knows what kind of mayhem it could lead to were Obama to become President.

Why, he may not know the difference between Shia and Sunni.

He may actually go to Arizona to celebrate a birthday when New Orleans is flooding.

He may invade the wrong country after terrorists attack us.

Who knows what kind of mayhem this appalling lack of judgment might lead to?

*** Update ***

I really can not tell you how silly these guys look making this line of attack. You really need to click the memorandum link above and check out the reactions. After eight years of fellating the guy who was so dumb his press conferences should have come with a laugh track, they are now really trying to claim Obama is stupid.
