Please, don’t get The Pink Flamingo wrong. I think there are idiots on both sides of the political extremes. There is the Loony Left, and the Loony Right. Right now, thought, the Loony Left is being drowned out by the Loony Right, which is basically having a temper tantrum, financed by John Birching mega billionaires who don’t give a damn about the country, but their own bottom line.
“…The NRA board member, draft dodger Ted Nugent, made his comments during the Shooting, Hunting, Outdoor Trade Show (SHOT Show) in Las Vegas over last weekend. Nugent said the “Barack Obama gang is actually attempting to re-implement the tyranny of King George that we escaped from in 1776, and if you want another Concord Bridge, I got some buddies.” Nugent summoned the Revolutionary milestone that pitted a group of colonists against British soldiers assembled at the North Bridge in Concord, Mass. in 1775, and broke a standoff when a soldier opened fire. Nugent went on a tirade claiming “The president of the United States goes to the Vietnam Memorial Wall and pretends to honor 58,000 American heroes who died fighting communism and he pretends to pay honor to men who died fighting communism, and then he hangs out with, hires and appoints communists. He is an evil, dangerous man who hates America and hates freedom. And we need to fix this as soon as possible.”…”
John Boehner says that Barack Obama is trying to annihilate the GOP. Looks to me like the GOP is doing quite well on its own. They don’t need any help, thank you very much. When people like Paul Broun of Georgia say that Obama is upholding the Soviet Constitution, golly, let’s face it, the GOP is up a certain sort of creek without a paddle.
You have far right lunatic bloggers like John Hawkins calling for what seems to be a national day of insurrection where the tea parties can take the lid off the national septic tank, sit around slurping out of straws, singing Kumbya, while caressing and making love to their automatic weapons. Please, make sure you put 2/23/13 on your calendar, to make sure you avoid these cesspools of Second Amendment love and frivolity. These jerks are going to get someone killed before it’s over. I just hope The Pink Flamingo is not in their cross-hairs.
Bill Quick, who ever that is, thinks that Donald Douglas, another far right loon, is on to something when he wrote that Obama was raping America. Yes, they are that stupid.
“...Well, let’s stipulate that not everyone’s losing faith. Some folks feel they’ve got no choice but to fight. And with so many people alienated and pessimistic, there’s a huge pool of latent revolutionaries brewing. Old Barack Hussein ain’t doing himself no favors with all that escalating polarization. But that’s all he knows….”
They are being led by one Ted Nugent, who was a draft dodger during the Vietnam War.
“...Nugent has an inordinate amount of gall citing the 58,000 American heroes who died fighting communism in Viet Nam, because to avoid serving his country, he defecated and urinated in his own pants and feigned insanity when he went before the draft board because as he said, “I did not want to get my ass blown off in Vietnam.” Apparently the NRA board member who was too much of a coward to fight for his country has no compunction fighting against his own country, or inciting his gun-fanatic buddies to “fix” the fact the American people re-elected President Obama; “as soon as possible.”…”
Take Paul Ryan – please! John Boehner, who says that Barack Obama is destroying the GOP, may have just put the final nail in the coffin by agreeing to allow Paul Ryan’s nation destroying budget to be voted on in the House. We all know the Koch bought and paid for tea party whores in the House will go along with it. We know the Senate will shoot it down, along with what remains of the GOP.
Then there is Hillary Clinton. If she wants the DEM nomination for POTUS, she may have won it today. To The Pink Flamingo, with this observation, it’s now who was right or wrong, but who was the biggest jerk. We all know who that was, the poster child for being a big brain-dead jerk – Rand Paul. He and Ron Johnson may have handed the nomination to her – on a silver platter – if she wants it.
Rush Limbaugh, who apparently doesn’t like women who aren’t bimbos, thinks Hillary had a “puke fest”. That’s what most of us think his radio show now is – a puke fest!
“…“She’ll head home, keep a little eye on [her husband, former President Bill Clinton] now just to make it look good, but basically she got a Get Out of Jail Free Card,” Limbaugh said. “Now it’s time to take a look down the road at the future, make sure that all the ducks are in a row.”…”
This is about pathetic, scared, little white men, one of whom we know needs a heck of a lot of Viagra, trying to destroy a very powerful and strong woman. It doesn’t matter what your politics are here, this is about a few nasty little white men who are afraid that they are no longer going to be relevant in a world where everyone else is starting to have a say in the world. Let’s face it, they’re still pissed because America dared re-elect a person of color over white American Perfection. They’re also terrified, so terrified that Hillary Clinton is going to be the next POTUS, that they are going to be chomping Viagra the way The Pink Flamingo lives on Tums. In order to destroy her, they will do anything and say anything. It doesn’t matter. Only scared, little white men who need Viagra can emerge as winners in this world.
This is the bottom line:
On Wednesday evening, The Pink Flamingo was involved in a fascinating discussion on Twitter, dealing with facts, journalism, and sources. Like Sharon wrote the other day, it’s bad when Republicans need to go to liberal sites to get the unvarnished facts about the GOP. We have a mess on our hands. If we were just dealing with dishonest politicians it would be one thing. Same holds true with dishonest punditry and half-way decent politicians. But, we’re working with a perfect storm of dishonest politicians, dishonest punditry, and a group of men willing to pay anything to get their way.
John Boehner is wrong. Barack Obama doesn’t need to do anything, or say anything to bring down the GOP. He could just whistle though.
