Right Wing In The Land Of The Falling Sky: "We're Doomed!"
What do we hear from the Right?
A catastrophizing, Chicken Little, broken record.
Barack Obama's election is the end of the world. This is when the Right's craziness began, with a surge in guy-buying.
I heard Rush Limbaugh say the other day that "Obama must be stopped" from destroying America, and the greatest economy ever devised - - something Rush called our "birthright", etc.
Then it was the stimulus package that's the end of the world. It's inflationary consequences will destroy America, and the greatest economy ever devised, etc.
Of course, the climate change bill that cleared the House of Representatives is the end of the world. It will destroy America, investment and jobs [a lie] and the greatest economy ever devised, etc.
And offering a public option in national health insurance reform - - an option, mind you, straight from the "choice" language proffered by conservatives as always the way to go - - is the end of the world.
It will destroy America, blow up [a lie] any relationship you have with doctors or private insurers, ration health care [as if that isn't already happening; See: people who can afford good health care, or have it provided as a benefit (usually best in the public sector], and will destroy the greatest economy every devised, etc.
And let's not forget that Obama's foreign policy is the end of the world. His speech in Cairo surrendered the notion of American exceptionalism, etc., and Dick Cheney keeps popping up to tell us Obama is making it easier for terrorists to hit us again.
I noticed this morning that the world had not spun off its axis, nor had a falling sky landed on our collective heads.
I saw blue sky.
Brought to you by the very same people who warned us that the very first thing Obama would do once he was elected president would be to sign the Freedom of Choice Act.
The right these days is morally and ideologicaly bankrupt, and its clueless media apologists are just pathetic.
