Let the world change you... and you can change the world

Welcome To Bizarro World

Bizarro WorldWe are now officially living in Bizarro World. The right-wing whack jobs have quickly followed up their “Yay! America lost the Olympics!” celebration with a flood of derision and hatred directed at the President of the U.S. for winning the Nobel Peace Prize. Every time you think these people can’t go any lower, they up and surprise you. I can’t wait to see what their next outburst is. This time, it’s their fearless leader Rush Limbaugh actually saying “Do you realize something has happened here that we all agree with the Taliban and Iran about and that is he doesn’t deserve the award. Now that’s hilarious, that I’m on the same side of something that the Taliban.” There you have it — Rush is joining forces with the Taliban, who we are at war against in Afghanistan and who are killing American soldiers on a regular basis.

When are the true “conservatives” in the Republican Party going to stand up and denounce these extremists and toss them out of the party? As long as they stand by idly and watch these people dominate the news headlines, they are being complicit in their behaviour and for all practical purposes condoning what they are saying. I suspect the answer to that question is that there are no moderates left in the Republican Party — they are all very sick right-wing whack jobs. If you are a true conservative, you really have no representation at all anymore. The Democrats are too middle-of-the-road for you, and the Republicans are too far out there in whacko land.
