More GOP madness... and these stories are from just the past few hours


wingnut alert

It's uncanny that Republicans, specifically conservative Republicans, specifically whacko crazy nutjob far right Republicans, are gung-ho-willing to continue pushing their whacko crazy nutjob far right agenda so enthusiastically after losing the November elections so badly.

Who in their right mind doesn't learn from such obvious mistakes? And by right mind I mean far right mind. And by far right mind I mean beyond help.

Check out today's headlines:

Video- The Daily Show: Republicans Hate the U.N. More Than They Like Helping People in Wheelchairs


Seriously, "Joe the Plumber"? "1939-45, 6 million Jews and 7 million others exterminated" weren't Holocaust references?


Remember this video from the other day in which we can plainly hear the words, "from 1939 to 1945, 6 million Jews and 7 million others... were exterminated"?

You heard that too, right? Now what could those references be about? If you said, "The Holocaust" you'd be right. Here's what Not Joe the Not Plumber said, per The Toledo Blade:

[H]e blamed the media for unfairly spinning the story.

"All I said was gun control was implemented, and then governments proceeded to violate human rights," Mr. Wurzelbacher said. "Nowhere did I mention the Holocaust or was I even talking about it."

Psst! Genocide from 1939-1945 means "Holocaust". And you mentioned it.

Phil Christofanelli, spokesman for the Wurzelbacher Campaign, dug himself and Candidate Sam into a deeper hole:

"The argument is that gun control created the environment in which it was considerably easier for Nazis and other tyrannical governments to engage in human rights abuses, so I believe the point of the video was to highlight a number of human rights abuses that were facilitated by gun control... Joe did not say the Holocaust was caused by gun control... I think it's a big difference to say gun control caused the Holocaust, which is not our position... His position is policies like gun control are implemented by tyrannical governments... Well, blacks weren't allowed to own guns in the South, that's a historical fact as well... So, it would seem that the argument would apply there as well."

Yes, you read that correctly. Slavery was due to gun control, too. Who knew? But I'm sure if you ask him about it, he'll say Team Wurzelbacher never mentioned that either.

Then Christofanelli said all the silly controversy was the "sympathetic liberal media's" fault for noticing and reporting the contents of the video. Of course, dear, you just go right on believing that.

As for "Joe," he needs a few history lessons. Or maybe he could learn to use "The Google"! It even has pictures!
