What a week for the right wing meltdown crowd. A new national poll by Public Policy Polling shows that a majority of republicans feel ACORN stole the 2008 election for Barack Obama. DETAILS HERE ON TALKINGPOINTSMEMO.COM
And the far right wing news site Newsmax(which in a totally honest world would be known as Newsmin actually Newsnon) reported a few days back that Sarah Palin told them shes a big fan of Fox Host Glenn Paranoia Strikes Deep Beck and chuckled a bit while saying she would consider him as a vice presidential running mate if she were to get the republican presidential nomination in 2012.
This is nearly as crazy as the Birther nonsense. Once again, as they’ve done with the cave-dwellers of Al-Qaeda, the GOP has inflated its enemies far beyond their actual dimensions for fear and profit. I know they aren’t good at explaining things, but how exactly did ACORN steal the election? Did they have access to the proprietary codes on the voting machines? Did they declare a Homeland Secuirty event and illegally count ballots in a warehouse? Was any member of ACORN caught with uncounted ballots in the trunk of their car, or discarded in the trash? All of their voter registrations were checked for fraud and they had no extraordinary access to polling places, so how exactly did they pull off this incredible nationwide theft? I know the Beckistan Teabaggers don’t feel they need evidence for their claims — if they think it, it must be true — but shouldn’t someone in the Big Media call them on this egregious baloney? (Okay, and I’d like a side of world peace, too, right after Goldman Sachs execs turn down their bonuses.)
BTW, NewsMax, Palin’s favorite news website, so she says, should more rightly be called ‘Newspeak.’
