Right Wing Nut House



Filed under: Moonbats — Rick Moran @ 7:13 pm

They’ve been after George Bush almost since day one. He was “The Accidental President,” “The Smirking Chimp,” “Bushitler,” and worse. They whined like 12 year old girls when Bush used their weak stance on national security against them in the mid term elections of 2002 as a club to beat them soundly. They grumbled like curmudgeons as Bush achieved one legislative success after another on taxes, defense, homeland security, and the budget. They squealed like stuck pigs when the President’s popularity soared after the initial invasion of Iraq. And even now, with the President’s popularity at an all time low, their “issues” are not getting any traction. I’m being sarcastic of course. The only issue the left has had for 5 years had been its unreasoning and unbalanced hatred of George Bush.

Let’s face it; if the left were a baseball team, my Chicago Cubs would have competition for being the worst team in the sport’s history. They can’t play defense. Their pitcher’s lob the ball up to the plate and the Republicans and Bush keep hitting one home run after another. When they get a chance in the field, they end up fumbling the ball, dropping it, and then kicking it for good measure. On offense, they’re pathetic. They just keep swinging and missing. In fact, things are so bad for the left, that lately when they swing they let go of the bat and it sails into the stands, injuring the very people who should be rooting for them.

But, like the swaggering buffoons they are, they talk a good game but never deliver. At least 4 times in the last year they’ve confidently predicted the end of George Bush. And each and every time they’ve predicted it, they haven’t only been wrong, they’ve been comically self deluded.

With a batting average like that, it’s no wonder they’ve never been in the game.

It’s really been a question of wishful thinking. The left thinks that if they can only believe hard enough, their dream of bringing down the President will come true. Sort of like saving Tinkerbell in Peter Pan by averring your belief in her existence but without the magic fairy dust. This has led to some of the most farcical and convoluted campaigns in American political history, each one confidently predicting the end of the Bush Presidency and each one in its turn fizzling out like a wet firecraker on the Fourth of July.

In doing a little research for this post, I googled up “Bush is finished,” Bush will be impeached,” and “Bush will resign.” It didn’t take me long to find a few hilarious examples of why the left is so divorced from reality and why, as D.J. Drummond likes to point out, “Liberalism isn’t an ideology, it’s a mental disorder.”

Did George W. Bush - and/or other top White House officials - have sexual relations with that man, James Guckert?

Lest you think this is an absurd question, I’ll refer you to the widespread rumors that Bush had a long-term sexual relationship with his Ambassador to Poland (”don’t forget Poland!”), former Yale classmate and Knoxville Mayor Victor Ashe. As with every other Bush scandal (AWOL, Bulgegate, Harken Energy, etc.), the Victor Ashe scandal has been blacked out by the LRWM. [Lazy Right Wing Media]

Last week, we posted a petition for a Special Prosecutor for “Jeff Gannon.” (So far, we’ve collected nearly 8,000 signatures - please sign it if you haven’t yet.) Reps. Louise Slaughter and John Conyers asked Plame-gate Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald to expand his investigation to include Guckert/Gannon’s access to secret CIA documents about Valerie Plame. Fitzgerald has subpoena powers, so he’d have no trouble tracking down Guckert/Gannon’s clients from his pager records.

Guckert/Gannon is at the center of what may be the biggest sex/spy scandal in American history.

Watching the left go ballistic over the Gannon/Guckert affair was almost as much fun as watching them throw a tantrum when nobody listened to them. The plaintive wails about their left wing friends in the media not covering “the biggest sex/spy scandal in American history” reminded me of a 5 year old bursting into tears upon discovering there is no Santa Claus.

Their cries about Gannon were nothing compared to the biblical angst displayed following Bush’s victory in November. And this occurred even after Michael (”I don’t care; Supersize me) Moore came out with what they were absolutely sure would ring in the death knell of the Bush Administration; the release of Fahrenheit 911.

They were so sure that this tissue of lies, half truths, out of context quotes, and proven falsehoods would defeat Bush that even mainstream Democrats came to the Washington, D.C. premier to ride that pony to victory. Even after brilliant writers like Christopher Hitchens and John Podheretz had taken the movie apart piece by piece and exposed it for what it was; a film worthy of Hitler’s favorite propagandist Leni Riefenstahl who, by the way, the left found it within themselves to forgive following World War II.

This was typical analysis of the impact the film had on the American public:

Michael Moore’s triumph in “Fahrenheit 911″ is a measure of Jay Rosen’s observation that “the terms of authority are changing in American journalism.” In 1968 after the North Vietnamese Tet offensive, it was the CBS news anchor Walter Cronkite who signaled “enough” to the American TV audience, and to Lyndon Johnson. In 2004, it is the freelance camera dude and eternally unmade bed from Flint, Michigan who has cut through all the embedded blather about G. W. Bush and the so-called war on so-called terrorism. It’s a great country, and a great moment, in which one man can make the networks, the New York Times, the very best of our old institutional media (try the babbling David Brooks this morning) look so foolish, so irrelevant to the truth we really need to know

The swooning by the left following the release of that movie and the certitude with which they believed that Bush was finished as a candidate gave way to gloom and doom after the Republican convention. It was left to Michael Moore to rally the troops and in the process, reveal an inability to face reality:

WAKE UP! The majority are with us! More than half of all Americans are pro-choice, want stronger environmental laws, are appalled that assault weapons are back on the street — and 54% now believe the war is wrong. YOU DON’T EVEN HAVE TO CONVINCE THEM OF ANY OF THIS — YOU JUST HAVE TO GIVE THEM A RAY OF HOPE AND A RIDE TO THE POLLS. CAN YOU DO THAT? WILL YOU DO THAT?

Just for me, please? Buck up. The country is almost back in our hands. Not another negative word until Nov. 3rd! Then you can bitch all you want about how you wish Kerry was still that long-haired kid who once had the courage to stand up for something. Personally, I think that kid is still inside him. Instead of the wailing and gnashing of your teeth, why not hold out a hand to him and help the inner soldier/protester come out and defeat the forces of evil we now so desperately face. Do we have any other choice?

And now here, in the dog days of summer, the hopes of the left have been dashed. Not once, but twice. First, the Rove-Wilson-Plame scandal has just never panned out the way they had hoped. Their hero, Joe Wilson, has been so thoroughly discredited that even the media won’t touch him anymore. And as the scandal has turned toward people in the press like Judith Miller who may or may not have had independent knowledge of Plame’s “secret” identity as a CIA agent, it becomes clearer that while acting despicably, Rove probably did nothing illegal. But that didn’t stop months of speculation that finally, once and for all, this would bring the President down

As with most of the dirty doings of the current administration, the Plame Affair has been buried, put through bureaucratic processes to buy time for Bush. But nothing stays buried forever. The blatant criminality of their actions are now bubbling back to the surface, and Bush’s Numero Uno, Karl Rove, affectionately known to George as “Turd Blossom” looks ready to take the fall for the capital offense of treason.

The significance of this latest development will not likely appear in the headlines for a few weeks yet, but it cannot be over-emphasized. Karl Rove (nee Roverer) has been, more than any other individual, the architect of what the world has suffered in these last years of the Bush presidency. These treasonable offenses, revealed thanks to Time Inc. are indefencible. The effects of this will rock the empirical plotting of George W. Bush and his accomplices, if given enough exposure.

Funny how these stories just seem to dissipate like clouds that never quite form, are never quite there. It’s symptomatic of the vacuity of the left’s intellectual engagement that they cannot grasp how truly out of touch with average Americans they really are.

Finally, there’s the Queen of Grief whose one woman vigil at the President’s ranch was supposed to “change the dynamic” of the anti war debate in favor of the those who wish to cut and run in Iraq. They called her “Rosa Parks” and an “icon” of the anti-war movement.

She turned out to be a loon.

Mainstream Democrats have been edging away from Mrs. Sheehan for days, something that the moonbat left hasn’t taken notice of yet. Judging by the number of posts at Huffington, they’re like beheaded chickens running around the barnyard not yet realizing that saner Democrats have abandoned this “icon.”

In fact, she hasn’t changed a thing. For all the millions of words written about Cindy Sheehan, there are still less than 100 people who have joined her little encampment. And while the press pumped up the “nationwide protest” the other night, the facts are a little grimmer for the loony left. Despite massive publicity, there was no massive turnout. Even in Hollywood they could only get about 700 people to stand for a few hours and relive the glories of Viet Nam era protests.

Face it. While many people are unhappy with the war and disapprove of the President’s job in handling Iraq, that simply doesn’t translate into the American people agreeing with the hard left that we should leave now. The war has transcended the President’s popularity. And while they may end up punishing Republicans in 2006 unless there’s some improvement, the left has once again handed the Republicans a gift. They have painted such an awful picture of the situation in Iraq that even modest improvement will seem like victory. They have made it easy for Republicans to claim progress simply by pointing to the left’s rhetoric and saying “See how things have improved?”

Once again, the left has been hoisted on its own petard. Their contempt for the intelligence and good sense of the American people has been on display for all to see. And it will cost them again in 2006.


  1. Daphne,

    I’ll take a moment to congratulate you for being an idiot. Are you on some kind of field trip from the insulated world of Kos? Armed with a token talking point, are you just traveling from conservative blog to conservative blog gleefully posting the same unrelated comment everywhere you go?

    Go read about Bush’s schedule; the office of the president travels with him. He doesn’t sit around drinking margaritas all day on his “vacation.” Also consider that Congress gets a longer “vacation” than he does. Enough of that. I don’t want to feed you any more attention.

    But I will say that it’s rude for you to stroll in to someone’s blog and leave a lame, irrelevant comment for an excellent, well-written post. I’d recommend actually reading what was written. It seems you didn’t make it very far past the title. The cognitive dissonance might be scary, but I think you can handle it.

    Anyway, I found this site a little while ago, and I’ve really been enjoying it. Since this is my first time commenting here, I should really get back to the subject of the post.

    From the first commentary you quoted: the fact that someone thinks there was actually a “Bulgegate” is indicative of exactly how desperate the far left has gotten. The things I’ve read on leftwing blogs has never ceased to amaze me. It’s unbelievable how smooth the Bush administration is! After all, they’ve gotten away with literally hundreds of conspiracies!

    Great post, keep up the good work (and sorry for my little rant).

  2. Good Stuff

    Hat tip to Jim Rose for pointing me to Rightwing Nuthouse (I was on my way there too) for another swing and a miss by the left. Guess they can only hit when Anderson Cooper pitches.

  3. A better question would be: “Will left wing loons like you ever spew anything but bull?”

    The figures you cite are for the twin cities only. What? Did you think I wouldn’t look? Are you being dishonest out of habit or are you just stupid and didn’t read the article?

    I don’t think either of those gentlemen are losing sleep over a drop in audience in what is probably, next to Seattle, the most liberal city in America.

    Next time you make a silly, ignorant comment at least have the smarts to not be dishonest about it.

  4. That’s exactly what I’m saying. Why should Rush care when he’s got 22 million weekly listeners?

    Get some perspective … and clean up your comments or I’ll delete them.

    As far as “effete malarkey” … and “not cutting it any more” …

    My readership has tripled in the past 2 months…And they can’t all be right wingers. Some, like you, have obviously escaped from mental institutions or gone off their meds.

  5. Ya, but The Canadians just got a Haiti immigrant who worked for CBC, also know as CSIS, appointed by the
    corrupt Liberal Prime Minsiter appointed as the Queen’s Representative in Canada and they shot a
    Canadian in Haiti today who allegedly is a CSIS agent. Pretty neat, but she is a citizen of France, so
    probably works for them.

    Yes, it may acquisition related. Documents are now needed.

  6. Superb analysis. I still think the big losers will be the mainstream print publications. I really wish someone would investigate the various publications numbers used by the print media to set add rates. I have worked with the retail food industry (grocery stores)and know that the sales figures from the stores (and from newspaper vending machines) are a joke. Many of these newsprint deliveries end up in the dumpster and the stores are paid as if they are sold. Why? The print publishers don’t care about retail sales dollars, they care about ad dollars which are driven by total distribution numbers–of which retail sales account for significant portion. Simply speaking, The print guys are padding thier numbers, and not insignificantly.

  7. The real answer is Plame works for the Hair dryer ladies in the movie ‘Our Man Flint’ and they are taking control of the intelligence Directorships in the community with the exception of France and Italy. Germany threw in the towel, but thats because of the problems in France and Italy and the fact that they figured Plame went back in time to Vanity Fair Engalnd(the movie) when the NASA executive program relocated to Langley.

    So, the real answer is Plame is a criminal conspiracy(don’t worry about the community in Iraq or our last ally, Spain) DOJ will not come near because Fitz really prefers politicians and will do anything for the Union at CIA, like Woodward.

    Okay, we still have hope if you watch ‘The President’s Analyst- it really was the phone company and, yes, the Beattles were an MI5 invasion………….
