Lie Down with Coulter, Wake Up with Fleas
Gary Kamiya nails the conservative movement’s ass to the wall for the deal they made with the right-wing devil that has spawned gay-hater Ann Coulter.
From his opinion piece on Salon.com:
As should be amply clear by now, there is virtually nothing that Ann Coulter can do that will cause her to be cast out of the bosom of the American right. And even if she was to lose her head and cross a line that even she can’t cross — calling Obama a “nigger” is about the only thing that would do the trick — a thousand hissing Coulters would spring up to take her place.
The Republican Party sold its soul to gain political power and now the likes of Coulter, James Dobson and Michael Savage have infected the heart of the party’s body politic with a free floating hatred like the ectoplasmic slime from Ghostbusters II. The GOP has become so addicted to their reactionary right-wing base that they have forgotten how to talk to the American people who are far more tolerant and liberal than recent elections would have us believe. In conservative eyes, the pendulum has swung so far to the right that they consider Bill O’Reilly to be sane and Faux News to be a “fair and balanced” news source.
The wingnuts want us to believe that Michael Moore is the left’s equivalent to the factually challenged and extremely bitter Rush Limbaugh. That’s so not true. While Moore may make the occasional hyperbolic statement to get his point across, he has not engaged in out right lies.
In a calculated attempt to establish a Republican political hegemony, the GOP choose to get hitched to a mean-spirited, intolerant and frankly un-American bride of Frankenstein. The GOP has made its bitterly divisive bed and now it has to lie it.
