Compare and Contrast
Victoria Jackson:


DOOCY: So, are you ready to join the tea party people?

JACKSON: I am the tea party people. We're beginners at this political activism and it's all new to us and it's kind of cute 'cause we're shy, we hold up our signs like this, you know, despite what they say about us, I have never done anything like this, but we have to because the president is a Communist.


Grandpa Simpson:


Abe: Ehh, why didn't you get something useful, like storm windows, or a
nice pipe organ? I'm thirsty! Ew, what smells like mustard?
There're sure a lot of ugly people in your neighborhood. Oh!
Look at that one.
[Homer turns into the driveway; everyone jumps out except Abe]
Ow, my glaucoma just got worse. The president is a Demmycrat.
[Everyone rushes into the house]
Hello? I can't unbuckle my seat belt. Hello? [honks horn
repeatedly]

"Obama is not a legitimate president because Hawaii is not a legitimate state," said Norbert Speiser of Downer's Grove, Illinois. "Hawaii does not have a straight line in its borders, which is required in order to obtain statehood."

wat? (Someone posted this on IRC.. no link unfortunately.)

Obama to Republicans:

"GRAB A MOP."



It's nearly perfect in its brevity -- a small pithy phrase that has a lot of implications that come with it, and it can't be misinterpreted. You can complain about who made "the mess" all you want, but in the meantime, you can grab a mop and help clean it while you complain. Or, if you don't WANT to help cleaning, and would rather stand on the sidelines, because you think such work is beneath you, we can see that clearly too. We, the voters, hired you, the lawmakers, to do your jobs well.

All that in three words. It doesn't need to question anyone's patriotism or suggest that your opponents are standing with the terrorists. It's effective.

Fascinating interviews
Sam Tanenhaus has written a book called The Death of Conservativism

I'm not sure I agree with his basic premise and argument but it is a fascinating line of thought.

Here is an interview with Bill Moyers on PBS

http://www.pbs.org/moyers/journal/09182009/watch.html

and Leonard Lopate on WNYC also got an interview

http://www.wnyc.org/shows/lopate/episodes/2009/09/22/segments/141110

I'd suggest a listen at the very least because it is a fascinating theory.

Huh
Apparently right-wing insanity tends to happen whenever a liberal majority forms. An interesting perspective on it and how we're dealing with it now via cable new media:

O.o
Ok... so an anti-abortion amendemend is up in Florida to outlaw all forms of contraception or abortion after fertilization, including rape and incest.

This quote is a jaw dropper:

... speakers blamed abortion for the financial insolvency of Social Security and the bankruptcy of American auto manufacturers, citing the millions of terminated pregnancies since Roe. v. Wade as costing the nation citizens and customers.

How crazy is crazy?

Good article explaining just where all the crazy folk are coming from as of late, and why they're so unreasonable and dangerous.

Health Care Reform Fact Check
CNN has put together a list of the various rumors, some fact checking behind them, and true or false verdicts on said rumors:

Its a little crappy for the layout, so I'll update with the list in an easier to read method shortly.

Get yer soshealist out of my fiyr departmantz
Wonder if any of these conservative tea-bagging town-hollers [i.e. these people] want to protest America's SOCIALIST fire departments? I mean, why should YOU'RE taxpayer money go to put out the four-alarm fire at your neighbors house. Are they nostalgic for the days when a PRIVATIZED fire truck rolled up to a burning house, then just stood out there watching cause the owner didn't pay to have their emblem on their front-door. So what, their property value drops immeasurably more than what they'd be paying in taxes. This is the sort of healthcare system we have NOW, the system these idiots want to keep.

So, here's a website for THOSE PEOPLE.
