Well, at least you can enjoy the flicker of panic in Hannity’s eyes

Via Digby, this video is just so awesome: I think my favorite is how some conservatives have decided that a “clever” dodge when challenged about their beliefs on Obama’s religion is to say that his religion is “liberalism”. Which is a way of saying, “Look, I think he’s a Muslim,…

Putting my money on paranoid hysteria

It’ll be interesting seeing how this battle plays out. As Tom Tomorrow’s cartoon today suggests, the only real consistent line throughout conservative reaction to the Egyptian protests has been a need to be loud and insistent that this is all about America without doing anything so quaint as educating yourself…

Birtherism runs into a couple of speed bumps

I could write some about how the GOP is trying to use anti-choice nonsense to redefine rape so that simply saying “no” or being legally unable to consent isn’t enough, but it’s Friday, and I’m in a good mood and I don’t want to depress myself. So, instead I’m going…

Beck ‘fantasizes’ about Obama getting ‘beheaded’ in India

It’s the classic double-negative: God forbid anything bad happen to the people I so love to hate. That was the theme of Glenn Beck’s Thursday radio broadcast, in which he spun a series of myths about the president’s ongoing trip across Asia into a violent fantasy about Obama getting his…

More on right wing domestic terrorism

I know I probably sound like a broken record on this, but it’s important to cover the growing problem of right wing domestic terrorism. Media Matters has put together a report on the beliefs of Byron Williams, who got into a shootout with California Highway Patrol officers on July 18th.…

Obama backs Jon Stewart’s ‘Rally to Restore Sanity’

US President Barack Obama praised a comedian Wednesday for organizing a “Rally to Restore Sanity,” saying it may help instill more “courtesy” in American political life. The president, speaking in Richmond, Virginia, tacitly welcomed US comic Jon Stewart’s plan for the rally, a thinly veiled dig at right-wing US icon…

Red food vs. blue food

Visit msnbc.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy Rachel Maddow is right on in this clip, except about one major thing: The right wing mythology that takes Michelle Obama’s relatively mild healthy eating initiative and equates it with a Big Brother program where you’ll be reported…

Glenn Beck: The World’s Number One Source For Glenn Beck

Glenn Beck has launched a new news site called The Blaze, which is a truly fantastic news source for Glenn Beck. It’s got such stories as why Al Sharpton doesn’t like Glenn Beck, why some guy at the New York Times likes Glenn Beck, children who came to see Glenn…

Teabaggery funny but scary

Well, at least Orly Taitz lost. The Republicans of California haven’t completely lost their minds, and we can take some comfort in this. In general, though, I find that I’m deeply concerned about the far right nutjob patrol’s gallant and often successful efforts at taking over the Republican party. If…

Exclusive: Law student puts price tag on Glenn Beck’s words

Glenn Beck is a cable-news phenomenon. His hour-long program on Fox News Channel routinely attracts more viewers than all of its competitors in the five p.m. time slot combined, sometimes reaching as many as 3.5 million people. Fox News, however, hasn’t been able to translate those huge audience numbers into…
