Idiots, Liars, or Hypocrites? (Hint: “All Three” Is a Possible Answer)

April 11th, 2010

It’s like shooting fish in a barrel when the other side completely and utterly abandons any and all semblance of reason or adherence to facts or logic. Nevertheless, with Jon Stewart, shooting fish in a barrel can be such fun.

It is so, so sad that millions of Americans take these right-wing gasbags at face value. But then, we’re looking at a populace which has this as a representative sample:

Palin’s view of nuclear weapons was shaped by her stint as the commander in chief of the Alaskan National Guard, our first line of defense against Soviet nuclear weapons. Obama has held his same views since he was a stoner college student and has showed no signs of maturing.

Which of the two would you trust?

One does not have to wonder much why the “comments” section of his blog post is strangely blank. To his credit, the blogger posted an update in which he admits to being wrong about Palin having had control over nuclear weapons while governor of Alaska. Less to his credit, he does not acknowledge that Palin had no business whatsoever with the Alaskan National Guarda. This, of course, completely ignoring everything else wrong with what the guy writes. At some point, you just have to stop critiquing, usually when you realize that you are dissecting the verbiage of what is essentially the political equivalent of the village idiot.
