To The Daily Sun,
Welcome to this week's edition of Bobby Jindal's Party of Stupid. This week we have the party's fearless leader himself to start things off.
Bobby just noted on Meet the Press that the RACE-BASED attacks on Obama were okay because Democrats did it to Bush, and Bobby also pontificated in a Politico op-ed that racism persists because minorities cling to their heritage. WT?
Ron Paul will be the keynote speaker at the rabidly anti-Semitic Catholic FATIMA CENTER on September 11 and Pat Robertson has claimed on his 700 Club that gays will be wearing special rings so they can infect you with HIV/AIDS when you shake hands. Not to be outdone, frothing and foaming Fundy homophobe weasel David Usher of the Council for Marriage Policy warns men that lesbians will have your children and make you slaves! Fox News Crock Keith Ablow claims that abortion and Facebook are to blame for the mindless murder of the Australian baseball star, Lane. If that isn't twisted enough how about this: consumer confidence is near a five year high, but (hiccups) John Boehner is still threatening to obstruct and crash the economy. America sold the highest amount of previously lived in houses since June 2006. It was the best July since 2005. And the Sun's right wingers seem to be oblivious of these important milestones. There is a great idea out there and its call infrastructure spending. It works. Until Obama wanted to do it, the GOP thought it was a great idea. 2014 here we come!
Texas Rep Louie Gohmert agreed with Alan Keyes on the Family Research Council's Washington Watch that it was "scary" that liberal elites would use vaccines for "culling the population" of humans. LIBERAL ELITES! AAACK! Also from Texas, the land of alternative history, medicine and science, Eagle Mountain International MegaChurch, known for its anti vaccination positions was the site of a recent measles outbreak. Virtually all of the children who were infected were home schooled and not vaccinated. Yup, some parents are brighter than a 15 watt bulb during a blackout! In North Carolina, the Republican Christian Sharia Body of Leviticus lovers passed an anti-Muslim Leviticus lovers Sharia law even though the Constitution is the Supreme Law of the Land, (Art 6). In Doplahoma, Senator Tom Coburn seems to have harvested some of those purple mudrooms growing on cattle dung right before a town hall meeting where he said that President Obama is getting "perilously close" to meeting the "high-crimes and misdemeanors" standard the Constitution sets for impeachment charges. An Oakie gynecologist's point of view!
In the land of Faux Snooze, younger viewers age 25-54 are avoiding Fox News like the plague as their ratings hit the lowest level since 2001. Showcasing more stupidity, Fox's medical expert Dr. David Samadi argued that President Barack Obama's administration was wrong to force gender equality for health insurance rates because men "only have the prostate," while women "have the breasts, they have the ovaries.".
Finally, as we finish, I can't leave Russ Wiles out of this edition. Russ thinks the president should take advice from the Heritage Foundation and CATO while at the same time parroting right wing nonsense about "the cyclonic economic destroyer that is Obamacare". Oh, Did I forget? Romney got his initial mandate ideas from the Heritage Foundation and then Obamacare used what they thought would be useful. And the SCOTUS upheld it. George Wills joins us with his superior prefontal cortex to tell us that single, minority moms are more dangerous for minorities than a lack of rights.
In environmental news all the fracking gas companies Newfield/Hess in NE Pennsylvania ran with their tail between their legs as they finally gave up against the onslaught of negative press. Gasland 2 now at HBO will only make matters worse for the Fracking outfits. In Youngstown, Ohio, over 100 earthquakes were linked to the process used to dispose of wastewater: from hydraulic fracking. In Greenbrier, Arkansas, there weren't hundreds of small earthquakes, but THOUSANDS! A study linked their occurrence to the arrival in town of waste-water disposal wells. As soon as the Arkansas Oil and Gas commission shut down the wells, the quakes stopped. Greenbrier residents have filed five federal lawsuits against the drillers.
Last but not least as August's season of nonsense comes to a close, A Republican state senator from Arkansas who is leading a legislative committee on the subject of giving guns to school teachers accidentally shot a teacher during an "active shooter" drill earlier this year, the local paper of record has uncovered. And in an Level RED irony of ironies, Donald Rumsfeld says Obama is not making the case for bombing Syria.
