As you know, I subscribe to Birther Central, World Nut Daily. I do this to keep track of the conservative mindset. The results are usually nauseating, as you might expect — thus far I have read not one, not two, but *three* different “origin” stories for President Obama there, of which two of them would make Obama both 100% American and eligible to be President, and a liar — the latter of which doesn’t disqualify you from being President by any means (mushroom clouds if we don’t invade Iraq, guys?). They also have a strange obsession with Obama’s college grades (unless one of those classes was called Being President, why should I care about his college grades?), and spin a myriad of conspiracy theories about all the evil things Obama will do if re-elected — it appears that the only reason he hasn’t banned all guns, seized all major industries and put them under government management, etc. is because he’s just lulling us, he’s just pretending to be an Eisenhower Republican to get enough votes to be re-elected, and if he gets re-elected he’ll do everything the right wing predicted that he’d do if elected the first time and impose a left-wing socialist dictatorship like in Castro’s Cuba.
In short, I haven’t previously noticed any real standards from World Nut Daily. They’ll say anything and everything, though of course their real objection to Obama is that he’s a Democrat (they were just as deranged about Bill Clinton). Until Todd Akin’s nonsense about “Legitimate Rape”. I watched for a couple of days, and silence from World Nut Daily. And then today… editor “Crazy Joe” Farah apparently uttered, Unleash the Coulter! and whadya know, that skank in her stanky black cocktail dress let loose with all the bile in her bitter venomous little mind against Todd Akin.
I guess evil has standards, after all. Either that, or the Republican establishment is scared that if this Akin thing hangs around, someone will remember that Paul “Crazy Eyes” Ryan, Rmoney’s VP pick, has exactly the same beliefs as akin. Hmm, but that would mean that it was just self-interest on the part of Republicans to condemn Akin. And that never happens, right? Right?!
