Right-wing insanity has no limit



I keep posting this stuff, wondering if there's any limit to right-wing insanity. Every time I think I've seen it all, heard it all, plumbed the very depths of bigotry and idiocy, I'm proven wrong.

Here, again, we've reached new lows in 21st Century America. Republicans really are dragging us backward, aren't they?

I know, I know, I've said this many times before, but could they get any crazier? Please tell me that this is the limit. At least tell me that there is a limit.

Remember, this was the reaction from Fox 'News,' not the Ku Klux Klan. The KKK doesn't get nearly the respect that Fox does. This wasn't just from isolated weirdos, but from well-organized, well-funded, politically powerful weirdos.

Cenk needs to describe his headache in the appropriate Gumby from Monty Python: "My brain hurts!"

The on/off graphic in the lower right-hand corner nails it about Faux "news:" 'Addicted To Controversy.'

Any time you make Faux "news'" heads explode, that's got to be a good thing. It exposes their true colors every time.

Ordinarily, I'd agree with you, Jeff. But I have to wonder if even Fox is this bigoted. Instead, I suspect that they think their viewers - elderly Republicans - are this bigoted, and so they're just trying to get them worked up.

After all, it's good for the Republican Party and it's good for the bottom line at Fox. I really do think that they're that cynical. Certainly, they've shown no previous reluctance in using racism for their own advantage.

I think they're just pretending to be outraged. And that pandering to the worst in their viewers is even worse than if they really believed it themselves.
