Joe Manchin and Sen. Pat Toomey, it will lead to the federal government taking the guns of everyone “…who believe in the physical resurrection of Christ…”

It seems that it is now The Age of Purges at all of the Big Media hotspots with The New Republic kristallnachting the shit out of the Jews and (apparently the non-Jews), the unceremonious sacking of Granny Methbabble last week for a younger hotter ….well, nobody actually, since they already have in-house Alaskan “Democrat” Kirsten Powers to say the same stupid things with the added bonus of English as a first language, and now CNN, which needs a severe blowing up like nobody’s business, is breaking up that old gang of theirs

CNN’s Erick Erickson: Insulting Women Is Not Enough, Let’s Lie About What They Said

There have been a disturbing number of instances in recent years when the level of political discourse coming mostly from the right has been so depressing that all you could do is weep for your country, if not the species.

As scary as CPAC was, keep in mind: it was insufficiently wingnutty for a whole swath of the right-wing movement, as Erick Erickson helpfully reminds us.

The Right-Wing Freakshow That is CPAC Begins

By: Thursday February 10, 2011 10:30 am

I’ve been listening to all the speeches so far, and basically, they ca be summarized thusly: “Obama’s a socialist, taxes are evil, freedom is good, Reagan is teh awesome. Also, U-S-A! U-S-A! U-S-A!” My favorite line so far was from Ron Johnson (T-WI) who bragged about how much Reagan cut taxes for rich people. I’m [...]
