Rush to Derangement

Just when you think they can't get any crazier, mega-crazy Gee-Oh-Pee-ers pop up like mushrooms after a hard rain. But you never hear any sane Gooper tell them to STFU and go away, so the Gee-Oh-Pee-ers must admire these schlubs.

In a classic just asking the question column, WorldNetDaily pundit Erik Rush argues today that the Obama administration may have been behind the downing of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 over Ukraine, suggesting that the White House worked with the Ukrainian government in order to blame Russian-backed militia groups for the crash. 

 This shouldn’t come as a surprise, as Rush also claimed that President Obama was behind the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370. 

In saner times when the Republican Party was run by humans instead of jackasses,  a person like Erik Rush would have been laughed at then pitied for his pathetic attempts at political theater.  Instead more than a few conservatives will lap up his putrescent mind-droppings and belch them back into their blog posts and blast emails where their equally weak-brained readers will nod their heads, scratch their chins and say "damn right."  

Because "Obummer!" Their O.D.S. is such that more than a few will believe it. The crazier the theory, the more likely they'll embrace it.

Someone somewhere in wingnut land actually paid Erik Rush for that load of codswallop.

Ah, such is the result of the continuing decline of a once sane political party.

Why tell them to STFU? These 2 1/2 watt dunces love to spew this stuff, it's what they're good at.

That and you know damn well the won't STFU.

Actually I'm surprised you pay ANY attention to WND Shaw. I stopped reading the bunk sometime ago.

Someone sent the tip to me in an email, RN. I don't read it.

But lots and lots of conservatives do, and they believe this sort of tripe.

I wondered why the saner (if there are any left) GOPers didn't tell the crazies to STFU because the constant yammering by the nutcases reinforces the fact that the GOP has entirely flipped out.

Rational Nation USA said...

I used to wonder the same, then I wised up and left the party. Registered as 'conservative' because I couldn't care less anymore about voting in the primaries of the crazies.

I might re-register again as an independent.

Brazen partisanship in the political parties simply turns me off. I see it all as a comedy show these days. Good for a few laughs before turning the lights out.

Since when does WND and Rush Limbaugh run the Republican party?

Shaw Kenawe said...

Lisa, this is about Erik Rush who writes for World Net Daily, not Rush Limbaugh. And many in the GOP faithfully read WND and E. Rush.

Lisa said...

oh see I must not read it because I don't know who he is .

And anyway how do you know that many in the GOP read WND faithfully?
Did tell you that?

Shaw Kenawe said...

Lisa: "And anyway how do you know that many in the GOP read WND faithfully?"

Because it's still in business:

"Joseph Farah created the news website WorldNetDaily as a division of the Western Journalism Center. It was subsequently spun off in 1999 as a for-profit organization with the backing of $4.5 million from investors, Farah owning a majority of the stock."

So Lisa allows Shaw impersonators on her blog? Why do you let her post here?

Shaw Kenawe said...

I can't control what type of person she allows on her blog. Apparently she enjoys posters who engage in porn, insults, and impersonating other bloggers.

Whatever floats their little toy boats.

Lisa, I used to read WND occasionally, After a relatively brief time I stopped. Not because I'm a flaming liberal but because to a significant degree WND is not journalism. There were occasionally articles that were at least semi factual. However the majority were mostly propaganda with about as much value as the National Enquirer

WND plays to the most extreme elements of conservatism and it's advocates. It is not worth the time spent reading WND.
