Meltdown

It’s been a hot summer, and the stress is beginning to show in some.

  • As Maureen Dowd points out, the president has to go to Idaho to take a vacation from his vaction.
  • Rush Limbaugh called Cindy Sheehan a “fake,” then denied that he ever said it (despite his own transcripts to the contrary), scrubs his website of the evidence, and jumps all over the people who pointed out his inconsistency.
  • The right wing goes batshit crazy over Cindy Sheehan for daring to have strong opinions about the war and getting like-minded political groups to support her — as if the right wing never did anything like that at all.
  • Pat Robertson wants to take out a contract on the president of Venezuela.
  • Ann Coulter… well, Ann’s been nuts for as long as anyone can tell.

    Isn’t it a little ironic that the righties have used the “angry left” label so smugly to dismiss our complaints when it’s they that sound like they need a time-out? What have we got to be angry about, anyway?
