Obamacare Shocker: Prostitutes And Other People Wingnuts Don’t Like Can Get Insurance!

Dear god, this Obamacare thing has gotten completely out of control! Noel Sheppard at rightwing freakout machine Newsbusters has discovered a shocking, horrible thing: The Affordable Care Act will even sell insurance to bad people! In reaction to a CNN Money story about a San Francisco sex worker who organized an effort to get people to sign up for insurance, Sheppard is aghast. You see, because a lot of people who work in areas of dubious legality — and legal businesses whose morality he disapproves of — make less than $45,000 a year, they will be eligible for insurance subsidies under the ACA: So healthy young people beyond subsidizing unhealthy older people will also be helping to get prostitutes cheap health insurance. Is that what Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) meant when she said we’d have to enact ObamaCare to find out what’s in it? Please, someone fetch his smelling salts! But not anyone whose health insurance he might have to subsidize. Read more on Obamacare Shocker: Prostitutes And Other People Wingnuts Don’t Like Can Get Insurance!…

Newsbusters: Known Black Man Jamie Foxx Ushers in Grave New World With Jokes About White People

Newsbusters’ Associate Editor Noel Sheppard pores tirelessly over leftist news outlets like Saturday Night Live to raise the general public’s awareness of liberal media bias. Without his vigilance, we (since we are not familiar with this news agency Saturday Night Live – perhaps it is one of those “blogs”?) may have missed Jamie Foxx’s vitriolic rant, a verbal orgy of strange observations about black people owning things and being President and being slaves and killing white people, comes just a few weeks after he called President Barack Obama “Our Lord and Savior” on that channel where you can watch Wendy Williams at night if you have a day job.

Light-Skinned Obama Image Is Racist Against White Republicans

One graphics intern or another at CBS’ news website decided it would be a good idea to create an image, for a story about upcoming law-making gridlock, of Obama’s face split in two, featuring a weird scar and a new, whiter half-face. This white face, however, happens to be on the “Republican” half of the image. (Though they did forget to give John Boehner’s face an orange shine. We had to add that.) CBS must have been making some kind of “Star Trek” reference, of course, which is what the KKK always used to say. Newsbusters and other conservative sites picked this up and said it was VERY RACIST. Not against black people, for lightening Obama’s skin, mind you. It was racist because CBS had the gall to imply that Republicans are more white than Democrats.

Some Wingnut: Paragraph-Sequencing In WaPo’s Patrick Swayze Obituary [Something Something] Liberal Bias

And you thought Wonkette was having a slow news day! Well Tim Graham of the conservative Media Research Center’s porn blog, Newsbusters, has been reading most newspaper obituaries of newly dead actor Patrick Swayze, for political blog material. But it all paid off when he reached paragraph 23 of the Washington Post’s version only to find JACKPOT JACKPOT JACKPOT. “Here’s a sign the Washington Post is a liberal newspaper,” Graham begins his post.

More Unfunny Cartoons: Gaggle Us With a Spoon

Lately we’ve been making fun of lefty playwright David Mamet’s forays into editorial cartooning. But the left has no monopoly on lame cartoons. Head over to NewsBusters, a site devoted to “exposing and combating liberal media bias,” and check out Gaggle, “a daily comic strip about the Washington press corps and Larry the press secretary. Larry deals with the shenanigans of reporters who couldn’t imagine anyone voting for a Republican.” Read more on More Unfunny Cartoons: Gaggle Us With a Spoon…
