Who Really Closed Chris Christie’s Bridge? We Will Give You One Guess And It Is Barack Obama

In what has to be the easiest wingnut editorial ever written, the online remnants of the New York Sun declared that if Chris Christie’s bridge of sighs was a case of political retribution, then Barack Obama is a bully to put Christie to shame, because he shut down parts of the government during the government shutdown. Yeah, we know. See, the idea — and we use the term loosely — is that once again, the liberal Powers That Be are doing a double standards dance: Let’s see if we get this right. Governor Christie is engulfed in scandal because several of his aides conspired without his knowledge to close approaches to the George Washington Bridge and tie up traffic in order to make a political point and embarrass the mayor of Fort Lee, a Democrat … Forgive us, but are we the only ones who think this is absurd? Maybe not in the abstract. But in comparison to the stunts the Obama administration pulled during the budget fight. A verb, guys. You need a verb. And yes, sure, the government shutdown in October happened when the Obama administration “didn’t get its way from the Republicans on Capitol Hill,” because in wingnutland, that is an accurate description of a shutdown that Ted Cruz was planning since last spring.

Awesome Pundits Just Cannot Stop Saying Idiotic Things About Elizabeth Warren

In the annals of political lying, quoting someone out of context is almost not even surprising any more, as anyone familiar with the “you didn’t build that” nonsense knows (and yes, same goes for “I like to fire people”). The original comment, disconnected from its context, gets lost in volleys of misleading quotes. But it takes a special kind of chootzpah to lie about someone even as you include, right next to your lies, a copy of the very thing you are lying about. Consider this ad for Elizabeth Warren’s Senate campaign, above. Pretty insane stuff, isn’t it? So of course, it’s perfectly reasonable that red-‘bating doofus Ira Stoll, proprietor of the failed-newspaper-that’s-now-a-website The New York Sun would describe Warren’s position thusly: “Elizabeth Warren Praising Communist China as a Model for America” Read more on Awesome Pundits Just Cannot Stop Saying Idiotic Things About Elizabeth Warren…
 

Former Ohio Secretary Of State Now Working As ‘Black Reporter’

Wonkette receives lots of tips from crazy old cranks who want us to know that the Clintons were mean to their Secret Service detail, and the Likud plotted with China to cover up Nixon’s assassination. So it’s refreshing to get a relatively straightforward email like the one we got this morning, titled “A Black Reporter’s Assessment Of Obama.” But you’ll never guess who this “black reporter” is!

HILLARY KILLZ KITTEH… Perhaps

According to a new memoir by Kathleen Willey, an ex-White House aide who claimed President Clinton groped her in 1993 (as if she didn’t know what she was getting into working there!), Hillary Clinton may have ordered some thugs to kill her pwecious kitty in an attempt to intimidate her from speaking out. And then they might have killed her replacement kitty, too! Read more on HILLARY KILLZ KITTEH… Perhaps…
 

President Cheney to Rule for 4 Evil Android Years, 10,000 Hu-Man Years

The New York Sun proves today that it is demonstrably crazier than any paper DC has to offer — man up, Wash Times — with one brilliant, utterly insane house editorial. The topic, as it will be in every editorial you read for the next 18 months, is the 2008 presidential race. Their exciting and bold idea?

Dial Tone: Air America’s Evan Cohen Found

Remember last week? Our most important concerns were Cindy Sheehan, Bush’s approval rating and the MYSTERIOUS DISAPPEARANCE OF EVAN COHEN, co-founder of Air America and the nefarious principle in an elaborate scheme to defraud a children’s charity in the name of liberal radio badness. The former board member’s absence — reported rather ominously in the NY Sun — was raised by several blogs as yet another link in a damning chain of evidence against the network (though you’d think the programming would be enough). The shadiness of the situation even prompted Michelle Malkin to offer her services: Read more on Dial Tone: Air America’s Evan Cohen Found…
