The conservative insanity over the Cindy Sheehan protest just keeps getting more and more bizarre. The latest comes from Rush Limbaugh who, from the sound of things, is not just back on the hillbilly heroin, but also taking horse tranquilizers and a full case of children's Robitussin.
From Media Matters:
LIMBAUGH: I mean, Cindy Sheehan is just Bill Burkett. Her story is nothing more than forged documents. There's nothing about it that's real, including the mainstream media's glomming onto it. It's not real. It's nothing more than an attempt. It's the latest effort made by the coordinated left.Jesus, that's so surreal I don't even know where to begin. Nothing about the protest is real? What does that even mean? Does he think Casey Sheehan wasn't actually killed in Iraq, that he's hiding out in the attic like George Bluth? Forged documents? Does he think Cindy Sheehan forged the death certificate, or ... what? The posters at the rally?
Also, as the lovely and wise Malibu Stacy just pointed out to me, if Limbaugh thinks the left is "coordinated," then he's definitely back on the Oxycontin. The left these days is about as coordinated as Bambi on the frozen pond.
Of course, that doesn't stop Limbaugh from wanting to strike back against the powerful left that currently controls
LIMBAUGH: We just had Stephen Breyer saying, oh, yeah, totally appropriate, we must import what they're doing around the world in other democracies, it will help buttress their attempt to establish the rule of law, and we might learn something, too. Well, here's something I'd like to import. I'd like to import the ability that the Brits are doing to export and deport a bunch of hate-rhetoric filled mullahs and imams that are stoking anti-American sentiment. Wouldn't it be great if anybody who speaks out against this country, to kick them out of the country? Anybody that threatens this country, kick 'em out. We'd get rid of Michael Moore, we'd get rid of half the Democratic Party if we would just import that law. That would be fabulous. The Supreme Court ought to look into this. Absolutely brilliant idea out there.Only half the Democratic Party? Huh. Must have been on a reduced dose that day.
