Law of unintended consequences exposing more right-wingers

To The Daily Sun,

In his bizarre disconnects from reality, Ben Carson thinks religion should inform science, evolution is of the devil, being gay is a choice, Obamacare was worse than 9-11 and is certainly the worst thing to happen since slavery. Having no clue that he is the epitome of the preposterous fool, Carson claimed Jews with guns would have prevented the holocaust. Topping it off, he says he would have just stood up to the Oregon shooter. Oh, that would work!

Welcome to another edition of Tea Party Potty Tricks where we keep the super heroes of the vacuous in the news. Carson's latest eye-roller is the tasking of the federal government to monitor college campuses for liberal bias to determine which places need to have their funding cut. He noted he would have "very strict guidelines" to protect conservatives. Ben's Endangered Species Act? He claims this is not really a monitoring of political speech. And my vacation home is on Saturn! Spotlighting the delusional persecution complex of fundamentalist Christian activists, Carson wants Secret Service protection due to him being in "great danger" because he is an "existential threat" to liberals. Existential Threat! Speaking to the National Press Club, Carson attempted an analogy between his presidential campaign and the D-Day invasion. Carson also pandered to anti-vaxxer wackadoodles by falsely claiming in the last GOP debate that pediatricians have cut down on the number and proximity of vaccines because they recognize there have been "too many in too short a period of time." All the leading Medical organizations gave this a "liar, liar, pants on fire" rating.

By now, even the slowest of people know that the Benghazi hearings were nothing more than a political smear campaign. While Donald Trump and Ben Carson whined to CNBC about having to answer debate questions for more than two hours, Hillary Clinton sailed gracefully for 11 hours in front of a hostile group of petulant worms and utterly destroyed them with her intelligence, strength, laughter, and calm. Many appear to be gleefully grateful for "useful idiots" like Kim Davis and Trey Gowdy. In an example of irony on steroids, Dowdy Gowdy recently whined about the blowback regarding his inquisition: "I would say in some ways these have been among the worst weeks of my life. Attacks on your character, attacks on your motives, are 1,000-times worse than anything you can do to anybody physically — at least it is for me". That's rich! Now the dumb and dumber are going to form a Benghazi Committee for Planned Parenthood. We can't wait!

The law of unintended consequences is exposing more than Trey Gowdy. The "e-mail scandal" has led to some embarrassing revelations. In particular are e-mails showing the Bush administration and Tony Blair plotting the Iraq invasion a year before launching it. The e-mails clearly revealed Blair's collusion with the Department of Defense in fabricating and selling the so called "evidence" which suckered most Americans, resulting in 4,500 killed, 31,000 maimed, tens of thousands of PTDS cases, over 150,000 Iraqi civilian deaths. and the loosing of ISIS.

Our Brown Bag Burning Award goes to Jeb Bush, who thinks brother George can't be held responsible for 9/11 but Hillary can for Benghazi. It's the Republican brain, again! Jeb thinks gun massacres are explained by "stuff happens" and the tax policies of his brother "created a dynamic effect of high growth."

What would Tea Party Potty Tricks be without some complimentary prizes for the literary giants of the Lakes Region Nutjob Express? For D.M. Williamson we have an authentic autographed thunderbolt used by Zeus himself. Russ Wiles gets a Fischer solar-powered calculator to run cost-benefit analyses of gun laws and statistics. For Tony Boutin we have a "Lord of the Flies" T-shirt autographed by Ayn Rand while she received Medicare and Social Security under a false name. And last but not least, we have a dead horse for Steve Earle.

In Texas, it seems, they don't know Noah Webster from Daniel

To The Daily Sun,

In a predictably snide and intemperate column published on Friday, Jim Hightower described Congressman Daniel Webster as "not the smart guy who compiled the dictionary, but a tea party bozo from Florida."

Memo to Doofus: the modern American dictionary was compiled by Noah Webster, not Daniel.

In his next sentence, Hightower belittles another congressman who holds political views contrary to his own as, "a little known tea party know-nothing from Texas." With the words "tea party" removed, same might be an apt descriptive for Hightower. Hopefully. The Daily Sun will soon assign Hightower's column space to someone — political left or right — able to express his sentiments in a less antic manner.
