See What Crazy Eileen Started – UPDATED

Filed in National by on May 21, 2012 13 Comments

We all remember Crazy Eileen, one of the first birthers to go public. Well, Arizona, not satisfied with being the batshit crazy place it’s become, has just added a new ingredient to the mix – birtherism. Their Secretary of State has indicated he may not allow President Obama’s name to appear on the ballot because he’s not convinced he was born in the US.

Kooky Talk in Sussex

Well, it must be Spring because it seems as though more crazy talk is filling the airwaves than usual. We now get to listen to Matt Walsh on WGMD in the evenings. Walsh was a DJ on 93.5 “The Beach,” until they tired of him and his nonsense. In 2010, he ran for mayor of Georgetown and took a whopping 25 votes out of the 455 cast. Yes, he took 5.5% of the vote. He probably got his butt kicked because instead of talking about issues that would affect the average Georgetown resident, he squawked about the Second Amendment, health care reform, and illegal aliens. Yeah, those would be my top choices if I was running for municipal office.

Well, tonight on his show, Walsh decided to talk about President Obama’s birth certificate. Or as he put it, his alleged birth certificate. He started off by saying “I’m not a birther, but……..”

I want to see more journalists do this: It’s about time someone has called these nut jobs out face to face (even if O’Donnell and Taitz were on different coasts).

A Low Point In American Politics

Filed in National by on April 27, 2011 45 Comments

Today we have reached a low point in American politics. After a huge frenzy of a non-traversy, enabled by a lazy media, Barack Obama released the Holy Grail of birth certificates, the long form birth certificate. It proved what we’ve known all along, Obama was born in Hawai’i. He also gave a press conference where […]

Pre-Chanukah Asshats of the Day

So I’m sitting here chilling to some Celia Cruz (Azucar!) and thought, hey, I haven’t honored anyone lately with an asshat award. And today we have two winners.

Connect The Dots On The New GOP Terror Babies

First, watch this video with Anderson Cooper to get a big dose of the new Republican Party.   Conspiracy theories rule, facts/evidence are not necessary, and when questioned just keep talking like a crazy person.  I’m beginning to think that Dems should use all these clips as campaign ads. Now, let’s connect the dots.  This is […]
