Mal-Teeth Falcon

Mal-Teeth Falcon

Edwards Throws WingNuts Under The Bus...

The WingNuts are all a twitter about John Edwards hiring Amanda Marcotte of Pandagon and Melissa McEwan of Shakespeare's Sister as official bloggers for his Presidential Election Campaign.   Edwards made the decision and announced today that he will not fire them because people who would never vote for him ( the WingNuts ) want him to.   Go John...   Go Amanda...   Go Melissa...   Never let the WingNuts get you down...

The instigator of all the uproar is a WingNut Par Excellance by the name of William Donohue who heads the Catholic League who today called Barbara Walters - House Mom To Bigots...   He has had many documented bigoted, homophobe and racist remarks throughout his tenure.   His interference this time in a public capmaign may even be illegal as theorized by Jeffrey Feldman/Daily Kos:

Into the picture comes the Mal-Teeth Falcon to soar to new heights of hypocrisy by echoing William Donohue's cry that foul langauge is forbiden fruit for the Dems to pick while feasting on their on hate speech and outlandish rethoric.   The WingNuts of the Nest all eagerly flagellate wildly with beaks spread wide, desperate for a small regurgitance from the One On High, The Mal-Teeth Falcon (yes I invented this term - sorry skippy).   She who is worshipped throughout the land from every nest of 23%ers has decreed that she will fight the evil libs til the last putred breath creeps from her craw.

Libs beware...   The Mal-Teeth Falcon is on the fly...

Matt Stoller at MYDD has set up a BlogPac page (Fight back against media hypocrisy - Defend our fellow bloggers!) that you can send emails to the mass media who are supporting this smear campaign...   I have already sent mine so I'm sure you will be clicking on over there and sending yours as well...   I'm sure skippy has already sent his too...

Limpbaugh :: Peace Prize?

Rush Limpbaugh

Somehow his name and the Nobel Peace Prize don't quite fit in the same sentence.   Unless you live in the Bizarro World of Bushji The Magnificunt.   After realizing this 'news' would be perfect for this page, I did a little digging to find some links.

Atrios at Eschaton has the low-down on the whole pill bottle.   As we see from the Official Site of the Peace Prize ::

Nomination to the Nobel Peace Prize is by invitation only. The Nobel Committee sends confidential forms to persons who are competent and qualified to nominate. The names of the nominees and other information about the nominations cannot be revealed until 50 years later.

Atrios links to First Draft who came by the letter of nomination which reads as follows ::

Dear Dr. Mjos:

Landmark Legal Foundation herewith submits the name of Rush Limbaugh as an unsolicited nomination for the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize. We are offering this nomination for Mr. Limbaugh's nearly two decades of tireless efforts to promote liberty, equality and opportunity for all mankind, regardless of race, creed, economic stratum or national origin. We fervently believe that these are the only real cornerstones of just and lasting peace throughout the world.

Rush Limbaugh is a nationally syndicated radio talk show host in the United States and one of the most popular broadcasters in the world. His daily radio show is heard on more than 600 radio stations in the United States and around the world. For 18 years he has used his show to become the foremost advocate for freedom and democracy in the world today. Everyday he gives voice to the values of democratic governance, individual opportunity and the just, equal application of the rule of law -- and it is fitting the Nobel Committee recognize the power of these ideals to build a truly peaceful world for future generations.

Thank you for your thoughtful and serious consideration of this nomination. Should you require additional information, please don't hesitate to contact me.


Mark R. Levin


Rush is a member of the Board of Advisors to this fine outstanding WingNut Legal Foundation and as you can see with your own lying eyes it is not even a bonafide nomination.   Maybe we should start a write-in letter campaign...   Wingnuttery at it's best, folks...   snicker...

Habeas Corpus :: Not So Much

Did he volunteer for taser target too many times...?   Have the russians nuked his suschi...?   If it kool-aid poisoning it is a really severe case, no doubt...   Maybe being sucked up into Bush's alternative universe, black hole, anti-reality bubble world just a few times too many...   You know...   Makes him Hate America...

Sparky Gonzales C&L Earth to Alberto: Habeas Corpus-update-video added

mcjoan says it so well: ( Impeach Gonzales )

A reader transcribed this exchange concerning habeas corpus from today's Senate Judiciary Committee hearings (no official transcript yet):

  • Specter: Now wait a minute, wait a minute. The Constitution says you can't take it away except in the case of invasion or rebellion. Doesn't that mean you have the right of habeas corpus?
  • Gonzales : I meant by that comment that the Constitution doesn't say that every individual in the United States or every citizen has or is assured the right of habeas corpus. It doesn't say that. It simply says that the right of habeas corpus shall not be suspended.

Article I, Section 9:

The Privilege of the Writ of Habeas Corpus shall not be suspended, unless when in Cases of Rebellion or Invasion the public Safety may require it.

Alberto Gonzales should not only be impeached for his willfully obtuse interpretations of the Constitution, he should be disbarred.

WingNut Testimonial

If this just aint the cat's meow....   And this aint just your run of the mill Small Time WingNut either.   This one comes with a pedigree a mile long (National Review,etc...).   A WingNut in the WingNut Establishment.   Lordy... Lordy... Will wonders ever cease...?

Rod Dreher: "Hadn't the hippies tried to tell my generation this"?

As President Bush marched the country to war with Iraq, even some voices on the Right warned that this was a fool's errand. I dismissed them angrily. I thought them unpatriotic.

But almost four years later, I see that I was the fool.

In Iraq, this Republican President for whom I voted twice has shamed our country with weakness and incompetence, and the consequences of his failure will be far, far worse than anything Carter did.

The fraud, the mendacity, the utter haplessness of our government's conduct of the Iraq war have been shattering to me.

It wasn't supposed to turn out like this. Not under a Republican President.

I turn 40 next month -- middle aged at last -- a time of discovering limits, finitude. I expected that. But what I did not expect was to see the limits of finitude of American power revealed so painfully.

I did not expect Vietnam.

As I sat in my office last night watching President Bush deliver his big speech, I seethed over the waste, the folly, the stupidity of this war.

I had a heretical thought for a conservative - that I have got to teach my kids that they must never, ever take Presidents and Generals at their word - that their government will send them to kill and die for noble-sounding rot - that they have to question authority.

On the walk to the parking garage, it hit me. Hadn't the hippies tried to tell my generation that? Why had we scorned them so blithely?

Will my children, too small now to understand Iraq, take me seriously when I tell them one day what powerful men, whom their father once believed in, did to this country? Heavy thoughts for someone who is still a conservative despite it all. It was a long drive home.

Spocko vs WingNuts

Thanks to firedoglake for the heads up on this...   Spocko of Spocko's Brain (now defunct) took exception with the hate radio wingnuts at KSFO who were proclaiming things like liberals should be killed and other wingnutery.   He started a write-in campaign to the advertisers and VISA quit running ads on their station.   ABC/Disney who we all love and cherish as the givers last year's "Path To 9-11" decided to sick the legal eagles on Spocko for using audio clips (available at the Blogintegrity link below) from the station's shows as proof of their hate-speech.   His use of the clips were within constraints of the fair use doctirne.   That pretty well brings us up to speed.   This post is in support of Spocko and all the blogs listed below who are willing to stand up to tha WingNuts...

Short History of Wingnutism

This is really a must read for all of those, like myself that have a hard time understanding the WingNuts.   O'Brien breaks it down to where even the most simple-minded of the wingnuts should be able to understand where they came from and why they are doomed to repeat history.   Very omniscient words were spoken by someone last year when they said that the Republicans/WingNuts can win elections but they can not govern.

This is a very long article with many links to current and previous WingNutism.   A very worthy read on everyone's part...

A (Pretty) Short History of Wingnutism

By: Barbara O'Brien on Friday, December 29th, 2006

In his WaPo column today, E.J. Dionne quotes one of his readers: "Conservatism, like Christianity, has not failed. Neither has ever been tried, especially by this administration."

This person may have a point about Christianity, although I think a handful of people have made a sincere effort; Albert Schweitzer comes to mind. But he's wrong about American-style conservatism. It's been tried, and it failed.
