Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

BREAKING: Federal judge in FL invalidates ALL of ObamaCare!

And not just the clearly unconstitutional individual mandate part.  It’s still fresh, but here’s the early takeaway:

Because the individual mandate is unconstitutional and not severable, the entire Act must be declared void. This has been a difficult decision to reach, and I am aware that it will have indeterminable implications. At a time when there is virtually unanimous agreement that health care reform is needed in this country, it is hard to invalidate and strike down a statute titled “The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.”

The VA judge ruled that the individual mandate was unconstitutional, but that the rest of the law was allowed to be intact.  The FL judge disagreed, saying that because there was no severability clause, the WHOLE FRIGGIN’ LAW is unconstitutional!

By the way, the judge’s decision is here (PDF).  My favorite quote (other than the part about ALL of it being unconstitutional):

It would be a radical departure from existing case law to hold that Congress can regulate inactivity under the Commerce Clause. If it has the power to compel an otherwise passive individual into a commercial transaction with a third party merely by asserting — as was done in the Act — that compelling the actual transaction is itself “commercial and economic in nature, and substantially affects interstate commerce” [see Act § 1501(a)(1)], it is not hyperbolizing to suggest that Congress could do almost anything it wanted. It is difficult to imagine that a nation which began, at least in part, as the result of opposition to a British mandate giving the East India Company a monopoly and imposing a nominal tax on all tea sold in America would have set out to create a government with the power to force people to buy tea in the first place.

A “tea” reference, too…just to tweak the moonbats!  😆

Obviously, this isn’t the end.  It will most certainly wind up in the lap of the Supreme Court, where I strongly suspect there will be a 5-4 ruling one way or the other (depends on what side of the bed Justice Kennedy wakes up).  Either way, savor the victory for now, my friends!  🙂

Quote of the day, “Schumer’s constitutional ignorance” edition

Chuck the Schmuck, noted attorney and, apparently, constitutional expert extraordinaire (video at link, partial transcription below):

So I would urge my Republican colleagues, no matter how strong they feel — you know, we have three branches of government: we have a House, the Senate, we have a President, and all three of us are going to have to come together and give some.

I wonder if any of his handlers let him know that the three branches of the federal government are the executive, the legislative, and the judicial branches.  Phil Hare just called from the unemployment line to say “Dude, even I knew that!”

And this schmuck has sworn to uphold and defend the Constitution?

Head of Communist Party USA: Maybe we should team up with Democrats and Obama?

As if they aren’t one and the same!  From PO’ed Patriot:

Sam Webb is the National Chairperson and Spokesperson of the Communist Party USA (CPUSA). According to his Bio he:
.
“travels extensively in the U.S. and abroad, including recent trips to South Africa, China, Vietnam, and Cuba where he met with leaders of those countries.”
.
In a recent Article posted in the CPUSA News, People’s World, Sam Webb seems to echo the sentiments of AFL-CIO President Trumka, as he calls for a “Broad Unity” to push forward the Agenda of the ‘Working People’:
.
“Working people fight on an unfavorable terrain at this moment and are unable to dictate the agenda and terms of struggle. In these conditions, broad unity and reach is essential.”
.
Who Might Mr. Webb be interested in Officially “unifying” with?
.
The Democrats and the Obama Administration of course:

.
“While this assault has bipartisan elements, right-wing extremism is leading the charge and one has to be careful not to lump everybody together.

Each legislative fight has to be examined concretely with an eye to drawing to the side of working people every possible ally in this unprecedented struggle, including sections of the Democratic Party and the Obama administration.

Out of frustration it is easy to put both parties in one boat regardless of circumstances, but that is a strategic and tactical mistake. Struggles that could be won will be lost if this strategy and tactic is pursued, and defeats that could be mitigated will turn into momentous setbacks.”

But hey, where would you get the crazy idea that Obama and the Dems are some sort of pinkos?

Chris Christie to union cop: Hey, at least you have a job.

I’m not dumping on cops, since I’ve got friends and family who are or have been in that selfless profession.  Our society to would cease to function properly if there were no police.  That said, their unions aren’t particularly helpful, and NJ Gov. Christie points that out.  Story here (including video), but here’s my favorite exchange:

Policeman: “My salary went up 2%. And after the increase in my healthcare costs went in, do you know how much my check went up Sir? $4. How am I supposed to live on that?”

Gov. Christie: “Here’s the difference. You’re getting a paycheck. And there are 9% of the people in the state of NJ who are not.”

He also said : “It stinks, but it’s reality.  Other politicians made you promises they couldn’t keep. I’m the guy who has to be here when the party is over.”

He’s not nasty when he says this, either.  He’s just matter-of-fact about it.  Economic reality.

ObamaCare waivers skyrocket, from 222 to 729

ObamaCare is so superwickedawesome that the number of entities who want to be exempted from its awesome requirements has nearly quadrupled.  Details:

Well today, the day after the President’s State of the Union, the new waivers are up. You may recall that there were 222 such waivers approved in November. That number has now jumped to 729 through the end of December. The total number of people covered by the waivers has gone from 1.5M to just under 2.2M. The list includes the usual assortment of union locals and businesses.

So what does that mean for the non-exempted?

This ever-expanding list of waivers is the direct result of ObamaCare raising the annual benefit caps on certain health plans. Obviously, a plan with higher annual limits is potentially more costly than one without them. The money to cover the difference in premiums has to come from somewhere. Without the waivers, it will come from the employer who are forced by law to upgrade to the more expensive plan. In other words, the 729 organizations who have received waivers are not seeking refuge from an unintended consequence, but from the costs associated with one of ObamaCare’s features. The real question is what these businesses will do once the waiver program comes to an end.

If you’re not an FOB (Friend of Barack), then you may want to become one.  That way, you too can get a pass on having to abide by ObamaCare’s onerous requirements.

Obama’s 2011 State of the Union speech

The Biggest Loser was interrupted by Obama’s speech.  Savor the irony.  😆

Some takeaways:

He said “This is our generation’s Sputnik moment.”  Sweet Lord, I pray not.  Sputnik failed the first time, and there were subsequent failures.

His vow: “If a bill comes to my desk with earmarks inside, I will veto it.”  This promise is not to be confused with his 2009 statement that “Done right, earmarks have given legislators the opportunity to direct federal money to worthy projects that benefit people in their districts, and that’s why I’ve opposed their outright elimination.”  Every bill that has had earmarks over the last two years has been signed into law by him.

A rather shameless lie: “Thanks to the tax cuts we passed, Americans’ paychecks are a little bigger today.”  He fought extending the Bush tax rates tooth and nail, surrendering only when it became clear he couldn’t win.  And now he wants credit for caving in on tax rates that he said were harming our economy?

According to the AP‘s fact check, Chairman O’s plans to decrease the deficit by increasing spending (he and his party prefer to use the term “investments”) don’t really add up.  Go figure.

Job-hemorrhaging former Michigan governor tapped by UC Berkeley to lecture about…job creation?

Any wonder this school is called Berserkley?  From Politico:

Now that she’s left office, former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm plans to write a book, teach at Berkeley and stay in the public eye as a speaker and commentator.

The 51-year-old two-term Democrat told POLITICO in an interview that her new work will revolve around the interrelated themes she emphasized as governor: creating jobs, reviving American manufacturing and expanding the clean energy economy.

What’s next?  Getting Bill Clinton as a guest lecturer on the joys of marital monogamy?  Maybe Howard Dean can lecture on anger management?

MI just elected a Republican governor after enduring years of Granholm’s disastrous economic policies.  MI is one of the worst states in the nation in terms of unemployment numbers.  So naturally, Californiastan thinks Granholm would make a fine addition to their faculty.

Suicide bombing in Russia, MSM not jumping to conclusions

Updates here.

Must have been due to the overheated political rhetoric from the Moscow Tea Party.  Or Sarah Palinsky.  Or something.

Look, I’m not gonna do the same thing I blasted the MSM for doing when it came to the AZ shootings by jumping to conclusions.  Waiting until all of the facts come in is obviously the most sensible thing to do.

That said, notice the restraint the MSM is showing by not implying who may have been behind the suicide bombing in Moscow?  I have to wonder: where in the h3ll was this restraint when it came to the AZ shooting?

Nope…no liberal media bias!

House Dems: Hey, you know what we need to do next time? Get a better message out!

Stuck on stupid.

House Democrats kicked off their annual retreat here with a vow to improve the flawed messaging that contributed to the loss of their majority last fall.

“We never stopped to … campaign about what we did,” Rep. Xavier Becerra (D-Calif.), the caucus vice chairman, told reporters in an opening press conference. He said he told the former Speaker, Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), that in retrospect, the party needed to better promote its accomplishments after the passage of the contentious healthcare law last March.

“I said Madam Speaker, the problem with Democrats is we never give the public the chance to savor our victories,” Becerra said, as Rep. James Clyburn (D-S.C.), the assistant leader, nodded in agreement. “What we didn’t do was take the time to do tap-dances about what we had just done, but we did the work of the people.”  (If, by “work of the people”, you mean “told them to go to Hell while we rammed this unwanted legislation down their throats, then yeah…”work of the people”! – CL)

“Too bad we didn’t message it better,” he added.

Ah, I see.  If only Alan Grayson had done the moonwalk through Mount Dora while rapping the virtues of a massively unpopular job-and-health-care-killing bill that nobody wanted, he just might have avoided that 18% drubbing he got at the hands of Daniel Webster.  Got it.  Thanks for the clarification.

It’s never the policies.  Nope, it’s the “messaging”, the packaging of the policies, that needs to be improved.  Considering these morons received a loud and clear message last November and they still don’t get it, I doubt that they need to be concerned with “messaging” these days.

Sick! Abortionist faces 8 counts of murder

Please read this.  Here’s an excerpt:

A West Philadelphia abortion doctor, his wife and eight other suspects are now under arrest following a grand jury investigation.

Dr. Kermit Gosnell, 69, faces eight counts of murder in the deaths of a woman following a botched abortion at his office, along with the deaths of seven other babies who, prosecutors allege, were born alive following illegal late-term abortions and then were killed by severing their spinal cords with a pair of scissors. …

Gosnell is facing Murder in the 3rd Degree for the death of 41-year-old Karnamaya Mongar. Mrs. Mongar died on November 20, 2009 when she was overdosed with anesthetics prescribed by Gosnell. He is also facing seven Murder charges for the deaths of infants who were killed after being born viable and alive during the 6th, 7th and 8th month of pregnancy. Gosnell is also facing numerous other charges.

You know what’s sicker than this monster “physician”?  The pro-abortion political machine in PA ran interference for this guy!

May God have mercy on their souls, and may our judicial system have no such mercy.

Obama shill at Washington comPost: “Regulation creates jobs”

Fortunately for Eugene Robinson, his idiocy was on display at MSNBC.  Ergo no one saw him humiliate himself, except for the one guy who Youtubed the moment.

Robinson practically begs Oba-Mao to explain to us peons how businesses who are crushed by Big Government regulations thrive and expand.  Even that dude Rachel Maddow pulls him away from that argument.

Memphis moonbat in Congress displays that new “civility” thingy Obama was talking about

Yeah, I’m thinking that maybe this isn’t what B.O. had in mind:

In an extraordinary outburst on the House floor, Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) invoked the Holocaust to attack Republicans on health care and compared rhetoric on the issue to the work of infamous Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels.

“They say it’s a government takeover of health care, a big lie just like Goebbels,” Cohen said. “You say it enough, you repeat the lie, you repeat the lie, and eventually, people believe it.  Like blood libel.  That’s the same kind of thing. And Congressman Cohen didn’t stop there.

“The Germans said enough about the Jews and people believed it–believed it and you have the Holocaust.  We heard on this floor, government takeover of health care.  Politifact said the biggest lie of 2010 was a government takeover of health care because there is no government takeover,” Cohen said.

Don’t get me wrong, folks.  I think this “new tone” and “civility” is a load of crap.  These vermin spent the last 10 years making Bush to resemble Rosemary’s Baby, and the last two years ramming socialist and statist garbage down our throats.  So as far as I’m concerned, they can peddle their “OK, NOW we want to be civil” garbage somewhere else.

That said, this is another example (and the examples are legion) of Dems saying one thing and acting in a contrary manner.

Sen. Kent Conrad (D-ND) to retire, rather than get Blanch Lincolned in a red state

This was a big stunner…since I wasn’t aware that North Dakota had two people to serve as Senator.  😆

Anywho, details:

North Dakota Democratic Sen. Kent Conrad announced today that he will not seek reelection, creating a potentially prime pickup opportunity for Republicans in a GOP-leaning state.

“After months of consideration, I have decided not to seek reelection in 2012,” Conrad said in a letter to constituents. “There are serious challenges facing our state and nation, like a $14 trillion debt and America’s dependence on foreign oil. It is more important I spend my time and energy trying to solve these problems than to be distracted by a campaign for reelection.

Translation: I can now be a left-wing hack and Obama lap dog with impunity, since the electorate in my state can’t do diddly squat about it.  Not that he was anything other than a liberal shill in the first place.

Anywho, I’m guessing that he didn’t want to get swamped in the next round of the big red wave, 2012 edition.  Oba-Mao isn’t very popular in that part of the country, and Conrad voted for the job-killing ObamaCare, so he was going to be targeted.  With him doing the French thing and surrendering pre-emptively, this is all but certain to be a GOP pickup.

Now, if we can just pick off another three (and hold serve in MA), the Senate will flip to the good guys in 2012.  With Webb (VA), Tester (MT), McCaskill (MO), and the Nelson boys (NE and FL) being vulernable Dems in reddish states, as well as barking moonbat Sherrod Brown in OH (where he and Obama are as popular as syphilis), our prospects are looking good for 2012.

Another leftist meme fails: Sarah Palin’s “crosshairs” map

Boortz forcefully takes down yet another numbskulled leftist talking point, namely the “Sarah Palin drew a map with crosshairs on Congressional districts that this nutbar didn’t see but we’ll slam her for it anyway” meme.

Firstly, the map in question on Palin’s web site:

Hmm.  Looks like crosshairs, huh?  There’s just one problem with that…

What wingnut blog did I get this supposed “surveyor symbol” from?  How about the U.S. Geological Survey‘s government web site (PDF file at link)?

Sorry about that, moonbats.  But moving on…

“Targeting”?  “Enemy Lines”? “Ripe targets”?  Pots and kettles and stuff…

Consider the meme thoroughly discredited, liberals.  You may now go back to your welfare lines.

Elected officials know even less about Constitution than general public does

Our government schools have done quite a job over the last several decades of degrading our kids’ knowledge of the founding legal basis of our republic.  Apparently, running for office for some of these people hasn’t helped.  Details:

When the Republican House leadership decided to start the 112th Congress with a reading of the U.S. Constitution, the decision raised complaints in some quarters that it was little more than a political stunt. The New York Times even called it a “presumptuous and self-righteous act.”

That might be true, if you could be sure that elected officials actually know something about the Constitution. But it turns out that many don’t.

In fact, elected officials tend to know even less about key provisions of the Constitution than the general public.

The survey asks 33 basic civics questions, many taken from other nationally recognized instruments like the U.S. Citizenship Exam. It also asks 10 questions related to the U.S. Constitution.

So what did we find? Well, to put it simply, the results are not pretty.

Elected officials at many levels of government, not just the federal government, swear an oath to “uphold and protect” the U.S. Constitution.

But those elected officials who took the test scored an average 5 percentage points lower than the national average (49 percent vs. 54 percent), with ordinary citizens outscoring these elected officials on each constitutional question. Examples:

  • Only 49 percent of elected officials could name all three branches of government, compared with 50 percent of the general public.
  • Only 46 percent knew that Congress, not the president, has the power to declare war — 54 percent of the general public knows that.
  • Just 15 percent answered correctly that the phrase “wall of separation” appears in Thomas Jefferson’s letters — not in the U.S. Constitution — compared with 19 percent of the general public.
  • And only 57 percent of those who’ve held elective office know what the Electoral College does, while 66 percent of the public got that answer right. (Of elected officials, 20 percent thought the Electoral College was a school for “training those aspiring for higher political office.”)

You can take the quiz yourself — click here.

Overall, our sample of elected officials averaged a failing 44 percent on the entire 33-question test, 5 percentage points lower than the national average of 49 percent. …

Phil Hare was unavailable for comment.

We routinely see our elected officials, especially at the federal level, ignore the Constitution.  I guess we now know why: they haven’t the first friggin’ clue what it says.

After a decade of violence, threats, and inciting rhetoric against the right?  After the goodwill in the aftermath of 9/11 rapidly dissipated on their side?  After having every one of their projection-based memes blow up in their faces?  And now, they want to “restore civility”?

Funny how that works, huh?

NYT edits Obama quote because it hurts their narrative

Leave it to the blogosphere to do what the MSM’s multiple layers of fact-checkers won’t do: report the truth.

Here’s an excerpt of Obama’s speech at the Tuscon memorial:

And if, as has been discussed in recent days, their deaths help usher in more civility in our public discourse, let’s remember that it is not because a simple lack of civility caused this tragedy — it did not — but rather because only a more civil and honest public discourse can help us face up to our challenges as a nation, in a way that would make them proud.

Here’s how the NYT quoted him:

This horrific event, he said, should be a turning point for everyone — “not because a simple lack of civility caused this tragedy, but rather because only a more civil and honest public discourse can help us face up to our challenges as a nation.”

Notice what the NYT omitted?  Yeah, they omitted the line whereby the president single-handedly destroys the leftie meme that the “right-wing hate machine” caused this psycho nutbar to go on a shooting spree.  Kinda hard to peddle a narrative when the Prez won’t even let that dog hunt, huh?

Nope…no liberal media bias!

Added: Down the memory hole, huh?  Reacting to the sunshine cast into their collective faces, the Old Gray Hag has since added the omitted “it did not” clandestinely, after the fact, with no correction whatsoever!  😆

MSM declares war on Normal America

Ace has a wonderful post about how the MSM, seeing its influence dwindle, has now openly “declared war” on us.  Here’s a hilarious chronological exchange between the NY Times and those of us in Normal America over the last decade (but read his whole post, because it’s darned good stuff):

RFK Jr: Uncle Jack was killed because of a right-wing climate of hate

Has Junior been hitting Uncle Teddy’s stash of Dewars again?  Excerpt of his take on the AZ shooting:

Uncle Jack’s speech in Dallas was to have been an explosive broadside against the right wing. He found Dallas’ streets packed five deep with Kennedy Democrats, but among them were the familiar ornaments of presidential hatred; high-flying confederate flags and hundreds of posters adorning the walls and streets of Dallas showing Jack’s picture inscribed with “Wanted for Treason.” One man held a posterboard saying, “you a traitor [sic].” Other placards accused him of being a communist. When public school P.A. systems announced Jack’s assassination, Dallas school children as young as the fourth grade applauded. A Birmingham radio caller declared that “any white man who did what he did for n#ggers should be shot.” As my siblings and I visited the White House to console my cousins John and Caroline, a picket paraded out front with a sign, “God punished JFK.”

Jack had received myriad warnings against visiting the right-wing Texas city. Indeed, there had been a sense of foreboding even within our family as he and Aunt Jackie prepared for the trip. Jack made an unscheduled trip to Cape Cod to say goodbye to my ailing grandfather. The night before the trip, Mummy found Jack distant and brooding at a dinner for the Supreme Court Justices. He was very fond of Mummy, but for the first time ever, he looked right through her…

Gabrielle Giffords lies in a hospital room fighting for her life, and a precious nine-year-old girl is dead along with five others. Let’s pray for them and for our country and hope this tragedy prompts another round of examination of conscience.

There’s just one little problem with his conclusion: his uncle was killed by a left-wing nutjob!  A commie, one who had defected to the Soviet Union a few years before he offed JFK.

Junior here sets up the story by portraying Dallas as some crazy right-wing city, then ends it with JFK’s assassination.  He omits the middle.  So it looks like this:

(A) Right-wing hateful city –> (B) ????? –> (C) JFK shot and killed

Junior doesn’t fill in the question marks in B, choosing instead to allow the casual observer to link A and C together.

Here, let’s try another one to show how illogical this approach is:

(A) Titanic sinks –> (B) ????? –> (C) World War I breaks out

If you’re a leftie, you conclude that the Titanic sinking contributed to, if not actually having started, WW I.  See, the Titanic went down in 1912 and WW I started in 1914.  Therefore, the sinking of the Titanic initiated WW I.  Post hoc, ergo propter hoc.

Anywho, the left is now trying this:

(A) Americans angrily revolt against the left at the ballot box –> (B) ????? –> (C) Congresswoman Giffords and others fight for their lives or die

The left has chosen to not fill in B with “a crazed, apolitical psycho with a vendetta against Giffords shows up and opens fire on her and the crowd”.  Instead, they hope to lead the average Joe/Jane from A to C and totally bypass B.  This is what RFK, Jr., does here, and it shows the level of depravity and moral bankruptcy that the average liberal possesses.

Quote of the day, “Liberal voodoo logic” edition

Excellent “refudiation” (see what I did there?) of the left’s meme that “the AZ shooter was influenced by Palin, Beck, etc.” by Jim Treacher:

But — follow the leftist logic here — Loughner is not a Tea Partier, or a conservative, or even right leaning at all. This proves that not only can our provocations influence our own crazies (which is 60% of us, to hear them talk) but in fact are so potent they can even drive those who don’t listen to us to kill.

Do you see that next argument taking shape? Taking shape? Having taken shape, I should say, past perfect. Krugman and all the rest of them, having called this as a deranged right-winger (and been proven wrong) simply make their argument more all-encompassing. They’re no longer arguing that right-wing invective can have an unbalanacing effect on right-wingers who hear it.

Their new argument is that right-wing invective can have an unbalancing effect on non-right-wingers — left-wingers, even — who don’t hear it.

That’s how insidious this all is. That’s how dangerous this all is. Right wing chatter can now drive left-wingers who don’t even hear it to kill people.

In the festering gourds on liberals’ shoulders, the above makes total sense to them.

More fallout from the AZ shooting

Shooter Jared Loughner’s friend confirms it: he was neither left nor right; he didn’t watch TV or pay much attention to the news; he didn’t listen to talk radio.  Leftie narrative hardest hit.

Sarah Palin calls out the MSM.  Leftie and MSM (pardon the redundancy) outrage ensues.

The talking point that “right-wing extremism caused this nutbar to snap” isn’t sticking, according to a new poll.  Even a plurality of Democrats don’t buy that.

Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders (VT) fundraises off of the AZ shooting.

Congressman CanJerkoffski (or whatever the h3ll his name is), Dem from PA, piously calls for the rhetoric to be toned down…a couple of months after suggesting that Governor Rick Scott (R-FL) be “Put against the wall and shoot him.”  Way to lead by example, jackwagon.

Yet another leftist narrative falls…again…but they won’t learn

I’ve always said that leftists are impervious to facts and consistency.  They are hypocrites and liars, and shamefully so.  They lose no sleep over their sociopathic tendencies.  They have no remorse for being the morally bankrupt vermin that they are.

So, away we go…

With the bodies of the AZ shooting victims not even cold yet, the left and the MSM (pardon the redundancy) were quick to jump on the “Palin/Tea Party/Beck/Limbaugh/Hannity/right winger du jour” bandwagon.  As I pointed out in the last post, CNN had no trouble asking viewers to withhold judgment about the Ft. Hood shooter’s Muslim fanatic background being part of his motive.  However, CNN had no trouble passing near immediate judgment on an ideology with which they are opposed, as well as important figures in said ideology.

Such hypocrisy and political correctness wasn’t limited to CNN.  The Old Gray Hag blamed the right, nearly a year after pleaing for calmer heads to prevail with regards to the Ft. Hood Islamofascist shooting.

Now, we’re beginning to get some details on the shooter.  Deranged wingnut?  Hardly.

I guess since the left guessed wrong on…

…they figure that they’re bound to get one right eventually.  I guess it’s possible, just as it’s possible that with all the wrong lotto numbers I pick, I’m bound to get them all right eventually.  Right?  Right???

They always peg these acts of lunacy and barbarism on the right.  They’re wrong every d#mned time.  Since they’re the ones who are much more prone to violence, I’m thinking that their hollow accusations against us for behavior that they themselves perpetrate is merely a case of projection on their part.

But we’re not going to let them get away with it, just like we didn’t let them get away with forcing their sick, undesirable agenda on Normal America last November.

Dem Congresswoman shot; the left and the MSM (but I repeat myself) blame Tea Party

CNN told both of their viewers that we shouldn’t jump to conclusions over the Ft. Hood shooter’s Muslim roots, but apparently, that same quest for calm reason doesn’t extend to the benefit of the right.

A cursory glance around the blogosphere reveals the left soiling themselves in outrageous outrage over a connection, real or imagined, between the gunman in AZ and the Tea Party/Sarah Palin/Beck/Limbaugh/the NRA/various other right bogeymen.

These morons are shameless, hypocritical, and never learn (regardless of how many times their narrative gets blown to hell), do they?  This one is beginning to look like a mentally ill nutbar, with political ideology not particularly a factor…but hey, when do liberals give a crap about facts, though?

Nope…no liberal media bias!
