Election Stolen By G-G-G-Ghosts!

“49% of GOP voters nationally say they think that ACORN stole the election for President Obama. We found that 52% of Republicans thought that ACORN stole the 2008 election for Obama, so this is a modest decline, but perhaps smaller than might have been expected given that ACORN doesn’t exist anymore.” [PPP, via Political Wire]

Acorn is Teabagger for Tinted Peoples.

Idiots. The election was obviously stolen by the Duchess of Cambridge’s fetus.

WAKE UP, SHEEPLE! It’s Ye Olde Reconquistae.

Look, it’s not like this is the first (or the hundredth) totally ridiculous no-such-thing sort of crap the GOP has taken as an article of faith.

Having the party taken over by the Birchers (of “fluoridation is a Commie plot to sap and impurify our precious bodily fluids” fame) hasn’t exactly helped *reduce* the problem, either.

Also, Digby highlights this fine outpost of “words-mean-exactly-what-I-say”:

I must have missed the part in my dictionary that included “banning anybody who disagrees with you from the community” under “liberty”…

@al2o3cr: Haha, they watched an M. Night Shamalan movie and thought it was a good idea!!!!!

@al2o3cr:

Obviously the Citadel is not being built to defy any laws of the United States or the State of Idaho

And right there, I knew all I needed to know.

@nojo: The Citadel will have between 3,500 and 5,000 households within the walls, with a single gate permitting access.

It’s the condo fees that will really kill you. Do you know how much a good Gatekeeper goes for these days?

Have they worked out that whole construction permit issue? Because that would involve local gubmint. Or they could follow the lead of the Branch Davidians.

@al2o3cr: It’s adorable. It’s like being seven and drawing up the rules for a secret gang.

Among planned industries I’m pleased to see a vodka distillery. I might sign up for the meth lab, God knows they’ll need one. No doctors; no hospital; no movies; no dentists; no Dolce and Gabanna; no Wholefoods; no Apple Store; no Starbucks; no Mickey D; no post office; no Hallmark store; no Ruby Tuesdays; no Olive Garden; no gay bars; no synagogue; no funeral parlor; no cemetery; no train/bus station; no outlet mall…

Does this even count as the US? They seem to be establishing a place to go where they can enjoy all the fruits of social collapse before the real thing happens. We used to call them Mennonites.

@Benedick: Does this even count as the US?

Idaho? No.

When Orygun does that kind of shit, it’s the Rajneeshees.

@matador1015:

Apparently they’ve found a loophole that lets you build without permits as long as it’s portable:

So really, its going to be your typical Central Dumbfuckistan trailer park but with double the stoopid and a wall. As one of the Wonkette commenters put it, “well, that means there’s only one gate to weld shut”. ;)

@al2o3cr:

Seriously, first thing that came to mind when I read the story was “Heck, every Southern town has a trailer park… how’s this one going to be any different?”
