Wingnut of the Day

runaway bride eyesThis is Wendy Wright.  She is the president of Concerned Women for America.  She is, as these things go, wingnut royalty. And she is completely insane.

The Obama administration’s actions to respond to the outbreak of swine flu, including its declaration of a public health emergency, smacks of an attempt to cover up this week’s Senate vote on the confirmation of Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius (D) as secretary of Health and Human Services, a prominent anti-abortion-rights activist told the Washington Independent.

“Some people think that declaring a state of emergency about the flu was a political thing to push the Sebelius nomination through,” Concerned Women for America President Wendy Wright told the website’s Dave Weigel.

Sociopaths, the homeschooled, and the clinically insane.  It’s all they have left.

Abortion Activist: Obama Actions Are Sebelius Coverup [The Hill]

Yes, it’s all an elaborate plot hatched by the Mexicans and Reverse Vampires conspiring with Kenyan Muslins, the Rand Corporation, the Masons, the Bilderbergs, aliens from Area 53 (51 is a distraction!) and George Soros so they can feast on the flesh of aborted fetuses.

Sociopaths, the home-schooled, and the clinically insane.

Well, that explains the ad for Townhall magazine.

@ManchuCandidate: Wow – next a Reverse Vampire Bible. What a great idea!

@blogenfreude: Soon as they finish the LOLcat Bible.

Geez, we’re late to the game.


Can we have Brothers & Sisters & Zombies next?

In this special May sweeps episode, the family desperately tries to figure out who ate Kitty after Pasadena is attacked by a horde of undead, bastard Walker children.

Its becoming clear to me that the normal human condition is to believe fervently in things that are not so, to define oneself by one’s adherence to one’s favorite falsehood, and to regard others who do not share your delusion with hatred, paranoia, and rage.

I mean, really, seriously, thats the state of the majority and always has been.

We are the crazy ones, you know.

They’ve got nothin’… absolutely nothin’…

Just a few moments ago Ari Flesicher was on Fox trying to make a huuuuuge friggin’ deal out of the pretend-Air-Force-1 overflight of New York. It was proof, he assured us, of a Whitehouse in complete disarray, and OMG we’re all going to die because of it!!!

The right is spinning ’round throwing mud in all directions hoping something will stick to Obama, completely unaware that Obama’s not even in the same room as them.

It’s ridiculous, but pretty funny to watch.

@Serolf Divad: They’re in the Romper Room, apparently.

@nojo: Actually that was the title before Bruce settled on “The Wild, the Innocent and the E-Street Shuffle”.

@Prommie: Did someone mention Sherwood Anderson?

It was the truths that made the people grotesques. The old man had quite an elaborate theory concerning the matter. It was his notion that the moment one of the people took one of the truths to himself, called it his truth, and tried to live his life by it, he became a grotesque and the truth he embraced became a falsehood.

But Sherwood’s being optimistic. The passage presumes good faith.

Nobody upstages Michele Bachmann:

I find it interesting that it was back in the 1970s that the swine flu broke out then under Democrat President Jimmy Carter. And I’m not blaming this on President Obama, I just think it is an interesting coincidence.

Even more interesting: Ford was president in 1976, not Carter.

@nojo: There is a sublime beauty, an awe-inspiring element, to her stupidity.


@Prommie: I envision a helium balloon, floating gracefully to the heavens, free of all tethers to reality.

@Prommie: Here’s what Joseph Campbell wrote in “The Hero with a Thousand Faces”:
The crux of the curious difficulty lies in the fact that our conscious views of what life ought to be seldom correspond to what life really is. Generally we refuse to admit within ourselves, or within our friends, the fullness of that pushing, self-protective, malodorous, carnivorous, lecherous fever which is the very nature of the organic cell.”

I loved that description. I also agree with you, anyone expecting humans to act significantly differently from a pack of rats or a dish of bacteria is completely crazy.

Keith should be fun tonight. Presuming he doesn’t do shirtsleeves again.

What does that picture of an Emu have to do with anything?

@nojo: I know. Who is dressing him? Unless perhaps he’s standing-by for Shrek. In which case it sort-of makes sense: get half-dressed in something would look OK if you have to turn hideous and green.

Oh, and plus Even more interesting: Ford was president in 1976, not Carter. . Ha ha. Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!

@nojo: Oh, I don’t know. It made him look less stiff, less self-important. Is the suit such a sacred cow for newscasters?

Don’t you realize it’s an international plot by the do-gooding public health-industrial complex to make people get vaccinated? This will lead to a rise in autism which will lead to demands for an expanded social safety net which will lead to more social workers and taxes.

@Jesuswalksinidaho: Have you ever seen a Commie drink a glass of water?

@mellbell: It’s hard to do gravitas in shirtsleeves, unless you’re Cronkite on JFK. More to the point, that Big White Blob pulls focus from his head.

@blogenfreude: Hey. My family were commies. They drank water. If they couldn’t get whisky.

Yay, our clever plan worked! Sebelius confirmed. Nyah, nyah, wingnuts.

Wendy Wright. Oh that wackadoodle woman. I remember going to hearings on the Hill and she’d be there with the other Jeebus ladies groups in these gawd-awful Laura Ashley floral dresses (and this was the late ’90s, y’all, no excuse for still wearing that shit from the ’80s) with white or semi-nude pantyhouse and shiny white heels praying for the little bebbehs being slaughtered by the rampant use of oral contraceptives and sex education in schools. So horrifying.

Because nobody wears hose in DC from April to October, due to the humidity, except for the Republican women. And not even all the GOP women wear hose.

@Tommmcatt the Wet Sprocket: A-ha! The emu remark jogged my memory. Now I know who she reminds me of…


@Mistress Cynica: Q: When was Sebelius confirmed? A: When the swine flew.

@Mistress Cynica: Where’s that Team Sarah email…

Ah. Sunday night:

Sen. Sam Brownback is said now to be rethinking his support, Sen. Jim DeMint has joined GOP Chair Michael Steele in calling upon President Obama to withdraw her nomination, Sen. Mitch McConnell is leading a fight against her, and the abortion industry is in a panic to try and rally supporters to contact their Senators.

Why? The Not on Our Watch! project has been EFFECTIVE. With Team Sarah, the Susan B. Anthony List, and pro-life organizations across the country, we ARE making a difference.

Go team!

And from the post the Team Sarah email linked to, a commenter slips past the guards:

I am pro-life and southern baptist, but the fact that I even have to say that as a disclaimer before I write this, makes me wonder…

But apparently all the hype about her not even having a chance of being confirmed because of your efforts and pro-life senators was A LIE! She won the confirmation by a landslide! Stop lying to the people so you can purify the GOP. And stop using your Christianity as a way to prove that you’re right. Read some more into why Jesus despised the Pharisees.

I took the Specter road some time ago ;)

A pro-life Southern Baptist can’t stand it anymore. This is getting interesting.

@redmanlaw: Excellent. You were like working that pun. Flew. Heh heh.

Two cases of swine flu confirmed in Marin County. No word if there will be a moratorium on hot-tubbing as a result.

@SanFranLefty: Another part of the conspiracy, damn Cali hippies.

Hey, anyone notice Nojo’s birthday pulitzer for “Dancing in the Dark”? Dude’s gonna remember 50 until, well, tomorrow at least.

Speaking of swine flu, this from Raw Story:

The fifth most common search on Google earlier this morning, via Google Trends, was ‘swine flue’ Not ‘flu’ as in influenza, but ‘flue’ as in “can you make sure the flue is open? I’m afraid the fire we lit isn’t venting through the chimney.”

We are doomed.

@Mistress Cynica: Perhaps a pandemic can weed out the morans. Just got Helvetica from Netflix – looking forward to watching it!

@Mistress Cynica: There was a time, when we had a fireplace in the homestead, that I thought the word was “flume”, which puzzled me when discovered a ‘log flume’ at the amusement park.

Of course I was eight.

@Nabisco: Who can forget the “undertoad?”

@Nabisco: And I’m sure your 8 year old knows the difference between flu and flue. Or at least I hope so.

@SanFranLefty: I think my six y.o. can spell flu correctly by now. She instructed Ma Nabisco on the proper way to sneeze (into the crook of your arm) today….sigh, the darndest things, sabes?

@Nabisco: Cliff May is a lying sack of shit and I’m happy to drop another 2,200-word doorstop on y’all in the morning.

@nojo: Right and Ford provoked the swing flu epidemic by fucking pigs. A fact that we should send to Bachmann’s staff.

@nojo: Who can take him seriously as a political commentator when he refuses to wear a ski mask on his show?

@nojo: The defections really started in earnest from this crowd after the 2004 elections when the GOP started its plan to loot Social Security by churning through Wall Street in the privatization gambit. The snakehandlers thought they’d paid for a theocracy but they realized too late they helped elect a kleptocracy.

@Nabisco: Dang, no one’s taught the little one the proper way to run up behind the nearest adult and sneeze into the crack?

@nojo: Hey, if that’s how you want to spend your 50th birthday evening, go right ahead.

Me, I’m watching the Nova special on intelligent design and the lawsuit in Pennsyltucky. Holy F-ing shit. I do love the dramatic reenaction of the trial.

@nojo: Oh wait “abortion industry” wow I had not heard that one yet. What an amazing concept, I mean now I’m imagining stuff like, union dispute at the abortion factory, inside trading on abortion futures, oh man can you imagine the ads an abortion industry would produce? It’d be magic.

@SanFranLefty: Wrote it last night. Vitriol keeps me young.

Breaking – Rush has pissed off the hunters.

“The U.S. Sportsmen’s Alliance (USSA) is spearheading an effort calling on American sportsmen and women to ask radio personality Rush Limbaugh to disassociate himself from the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), the largest animal rights group in the country.

“On April 14, 2009, the HSUS revealed that Rush Limbaugh had recorded two radio announcements supporting two of its programs. This revelation has caused an uproar in the sportsmen’s community due to HSUS’ long-standing history of assaulting hunting, fishing, and trapping rights.”

Almost missed this because I hardly ever read the enewsletter from the National Wild Turkey Federation (the bird, not the bourbon).

@redmanlaw: Chainsaw? I think Kitty has a message for you.
