Here's what Sharp had to say in a typically juvenile recent post:
Since Missourah blog never "seizes" to make Sharp laugh, I think we're left with the perfect motto for 2010.
The St. Louis Tea Party: Cease the Day!
In other words, Loesch is so offended by the success of a boycott on Whole Foods, that she's going to boycott Whole Foods. Classic Loesch. Very few people are so good at contradicting themselves in the same sentence.

Update: After looking over the additional content for this post, I think that it's at best childish and at worst unfair. In fact, I think it takes away from much of the other content on this site, which is pointing out inconsistencies and extreme behavior in the St. Louis Tea Party. I've decided to delete the content, but I'm sure there are screenshots of it out there somewhere if you really want to see it!
Maybe the public option was a distraction, a bargaining chip that Barry asked for so it looks like he's compromising when he gives it up. He gives up the public option in favor of Medicare expansion which sounds more moderate to Joe Public. When that's all he needs to get the single payer ball rolling in the first place.
Here's the screenshot:
Umm, Adam, I guess your fellow wingnuts forgot to inform you that Medicare expansion was dropped two weeks ago when Lieberman said he would filibuster it. Maybe when you're railing on about how Obama is leading us to a Marxist Dictatorship you might try , you know, actually reading the news or understanding the issues. And aren't you the guy who keeps complaining the congress doesn't "read the bill?"
Holy Flurking Schnit doesn't even begin to capture how hilariously clueless that post was!

Then KMOV, not content with leaving a great "wignuts freak out over nothing!" story alone, decides to get to the bottom of things by interviewing noted global warming expert Dana Loesch:
Among Loesch's important observations:
1. She won't allow her kids to watch the videos because they're "kooky."
2. The owners of Build-a-Bear likely eat tofu and wear Birkenstocks.
3. It's "political preaching" to teach children about scientific consensus.
KMOV decided to start Christmas a little early this year, by giving the sweetest gift of all: blissful, blissful ignorance.

Lynch Mob: a mob that kills a person for some presumed offense without legal authority
OK, so maybe they're not trying to kill anybody, but the St. Louis Tea Party is certainly trying to pervert the local justice system by using political pressure, harrassment, and name-calling to try to distort legal proceedings. Despite the fact that they have never taken the time to address questions raised about their version of the altercation outside of Russ Carnahan's townhall, the local tea party is absolutely certain that SEIU members involved should be tried for a felony hate crime. They furthermore are certain that this is a conspiracy that reaches all the way up to President Obama. Due to this unquestioning conviction, they have alleged without any evidence whatsoever that local prosecutors are engaged in a massive coverup, and have been doing everything in their power to ruin the names and reputations of several people who work in the St. Louis County Government.
The latest example of their lynch mob mentality was going to the St. Louis County Government Building to demand that County Counselor Patricia Reddington raise the charges against the two SEIU members to a felony hate crime. As pointed out in their own comments, this actually has nothing to do with Reddington, but she makes a convenient political target for the mob. But more importantly, the tea party, as usual, deliberatly leaves out the fact that the person who allegedly used the n-word was also a black man. As pointed out at Media Matters, the definition of "hate crime" includes the fact that the attack was motivated by "prejudice against someone's race, color, religion, national origin, ethnicity, sexual orientation or physical or mental disability." In other words, it's ridiculous to claim that McCowan committed a hate crime (even if you believe that he used the word, which he denies), since it would imply that he's prejudiced against himself!
Furthermore, also pointed out by Media Matters, check out what the FBI has to say about hate crimes, as it's warning employees to be cautious about extenuating circumstances:
2. Misleading Facts — Agencies must be alert to misleading facts. For example, the offender used an epithet to refer to the victim’s race, but the offender and victim were of the same race.
In other words, the FBI warns their agents not be mislead by people like the tea party lynch mob. But of course, that won't stop the same people who were certain that Iraq had WMDs and who are certain that climate change is a hoax from continuing to try to destroy anyone if it helps their political ideology.
*For the record, I'm not saying that everyone who has ever participated in a tea party rally acts like a lynch mob. Rather, I'm referring to the opportunist local leaders like Dana Loesch, Bill Hennessy, Carl Bearden, and Jim Hoft who are willing to cynically distort the court system for cheap political points.

Burns's letter complained that the Wash U administration was trying frame the Young Americans for Liberty for the hammer and sickle emblems that mysteriously appeared on campus exactly the same day that YAL put up their gulag. He claims that "The students had nothing to do with the spray chalking" and that the university is engaging in, "MALICIOUS, RETALIATORY ACTION AGAINST THE STUDENTS" (caps lock #fail from the original) Gateway Pundit claimed they were being blamed for "random grafitti."
But if that's the case, they why did Bill Hennessy include pictures of the hammer and sickle in his report about the "student" demonstration?
Is Bill Hennessy trying to frame the Young Americans for Liberty? Why would he suggest that the emblems had something to do with the display?
Notice the precise wording of Burns. He said no STUDENTS were involved in the spraying. So maybe he's saying some of the visiting horde of tea party activists like Burns, Hennessy, and Jim Hoft were the people who actually defaced the campus property.
And John Burns, noble person that he is, decided to stick up for the students. Except for that small part where he says who actually did it.

Now, I'm still not sure why Loesch and Hennessy won't mention Purgason's name in print if they're really all about conservative values. And I also don't know why she wouldn't straight up endorse Purgason given his conservative legitimacy compared to Blunt's. If the St. Louis Tea Party really decided to go all in for Purgason, I bet he could win the primary, so their silence is the equivalent of endorsing Blunt. But ultimately I gotta give credit where credit is due. Dana Loesch at least took a step towards walking the walk, even though she's still done far more talking the talk.

(screen shot from Gateway Pundit's page)
But of course, that won't stop Gateway Pundit from claiming that they had 4,000 people.
Since they claimed to have 10,000 people at their April rally, at least we can all agree that today was a giant #FAIL.

I found it here, though I imagine that the advertisements might be location specific.
Anyway, while I was always skeptical of Ed Martin's ethical virtues given his role in the Eckersley scandal, his frivolous lawsuits, and his general behavior as Chief of Staff for one of the worst governors in Missouri's history, I assumed that he probably had at least some political skill. But trying to run for Missouri's 3rd district as the Glenn Beck candidate? Seriously?
Tuesday, November 24, 2009
First, following the link to Martin's statement from the blog, he claims that the stimulus resulted in only 73 jobs for the state of Missouri:
But reading the actual webpage, you see that over 14,000 jobs are listed as being created in Missouri, and that the number 73 actually applies to the 3rd Congressional District:
Not only that, but just a few days earlier, Martin had claimed that a different number of jobs had been created in the 3rd district:
If he just posted a few days earlier a higher number, shouldn't he at least explain why he's using the lower number now?
But finally, the worst problem is that even if Martin was able to create a passable 4th grade report, his information is completely misleading. As was noted on the Missouri Political News Blog, most of the state jobs get reported for the Jefferson City Congressional district, so there were jobs created in the 3rd district that are reported in the 4th district. Furthermore, the stimulus was back loaded, so many more jobs will still be created. So Martin's basically just trying to exaggerate incomplete information, and he's not even doing a good job at that.
Maybe he should just stick to filing nuisance lawsuits. He's good at that.
Monday, November 23, 2009
The top billed character is Pat Dollard, who hosts a radio show called "Jihadi Killer" and regularly has posts on his blog titled things like "Cocksucking Elivis Costello on O'Reilly And Dobbs" and "Dyke Fearmonger Maddow Accuses CAIR Investigation Group of Fearmongering."
Then there's James O'Keefe , the ACORN investigator who by his own admission was kicked out of the dorms in college for allegedly using racial slurs to describe the people who shared his floor.
And of course Jim Hoft, who recently refused to delink from a race-baiting video on a white supremacist website.
And Stephanie Rubach, organizer of the St. Louis version of the Million Medicated March, who openly believes that Obama is a secret Muslim.
Speaker Mike Carey is notable in that he doesn't have any obvious form of bigotry associated with him. On the other hand, he's the President of the Ohio Coal Association. I guess he's there to show how in no way are the tea parties an astroturf movement.
And there's good old Dave McArthur, who recently got in trouble for using the slur "raghead."
And finally, the "Master of Ceremonies" for this enlightening rally will be none other than Bill Hennessy, who claims that Obama is trying to turn all of your children into Nazi snitches.
Sounds like it will be a time of great merriment and thoughtful analysis, no?
Sunday, November 22, 2009
Maybe that kind of crazy is just what he needs to do to keep his tea party base riled up. But what's really goofy is this recent statement from Martin on the stimulus. First, as pointed out by the Missouri Political News Blog, Martin gets off to a bad start by criticizing the wrong website, recovery.org, a private website that is not run by the government.
Then, in the press release, Martin claims that only 73 jobs have been created in Missouri!
But it's quite clear from the actual website that the state of Missouri has created over 14,000 jobs from stimulus money. Martin must, in fact, be talking about the 3rd District, which shows 73.7 jobs created, but as MPNB points out part of this number reflects the fact that most of the jobs are assigned to the Jefferson City Congressional District (which is listed as creating over 12,000 jobs). Yet even this would be a weird claim, considering that just a few days earlier Martin had claimed that 102 jobs were created in District 3. He can't even keep his own misleading claims straight!
Naturally, the tea people would love to have someone as completely incompetent as Martin in the U.S. Congress.
Loesch is, as usual, completely right. We don't need some stupid system where we go to hospitals and medical professionals treat people with problems. What we need is to be nicer to each other, gol darnit.
So in these upcoming days of giving thanks, maybe we should think about how we personally can solve the health care crisis. And we can take a little time out of our busy schedules to make the following changes:
-Cut out Scrabble night and instead take a class in immunohistology.
-Don't just loan your neighbor a ladder; perform triple bypass surgery on him.
-When your children's friends come over to play video games, take an extra half hour to diagnose whether or not they have leukemia.
-Invest in a community magnetic resonance imaging machine to help search for tumors.
-Pray. A lot.
Loesch has once again used her careful reasoning to teach us a very important lesson. While we were out searching through the details of how the health care system works and trying to understand complex legislation, we were forgetting to look inward. Because the truth is that health care reform was next to us all along [sniffle]: it was in our hearts.

Once again, Hennessy proves that he's only interested in looking revolutionary while actually promoting the same old Republican Party. If he doesn't like me saying that, then perhaps he can explain why he's not willing to even mention the Republican Senate Primary.

Tuesday, November 17, 2009
Nevertheless, none of the above makes it OK to use a racial slur. Yes, I understand that he said "raghead terrorist," but that does not make it OK either. A murderer is someone who by definition is a bad person, but that does not mean it's OK to say [racial slur] murderer. In fact, doing so draws attention away from the real problem and towards the cultural or racial identity of the person being insulted. So I don't think I did anything wrong by pointing out that McArthur used a racial slur in his comments to rile up the tea party crowd.
As long as you're here, it's probably worth pointing out a few other things as well. Loesch will no doubt try to imply that this site is used to personally attack her. This is not true. We don't know Loesch personally nor would knowing her be relevant to the purpose of this blog. Loesch and other members of the tea party are very forward about their political views, and this site is directed at critiquing those views. In fact, as I think would be clear to anyone who reads the material here, it makes a pretty convincing case that the leaders of the tea party movement are systematically misinforming the people who rely on them for information.
For example, did you know that Loesch completely invented a story about the government funneling activists to ACORN? She claimed that the government was directing traffic to volunteer for ACORN, but a quick search revealed that many of the "ACORN" sites were in fact anti-ACORN rants. Not only that, but the same site directed people to Tea Parties. But despite the fact that this was obviously not a government conspiracy, Loesch just said her piece, ignored all evidence to the contrary, and moved on to her next story.
Or, did you know that Loesch claimed that a HCAN rally was astroturf because she had a video that showed that they were holding Obama signs. The only problem, she used video that was from an OFA rally several weeks earlier. Even Sean Hannity apologizes for using video from the wrong day, but Loesch just changes the subject and moves on.
Or, not from this site, but what about two weeks ago when Loesch claimed that "union thugs" had attacked a tea party patriot. However, once the evidence came out that in fact charges had been filed against the tea party activist, she simply deleted her post with no explanation, and no "oops, I guess it was the other way around."
In other words, if you were directed here by Loesch, you are very likely being systematically mislead on a daily basis. You might not believe me now, but I hope someday you will. Maybe after healthcare reform passes and it turns out that people's lives are substantialy better, you might start to question folks like Loesch and Hennessy who use fear and propaganda for their political purposes.
In fact, I don't have time to get into it now, but Loesch's recent post today is also misleading.
So I realize her regular audience is going to be inclined to dislike me, but I think what I'm doing is a service to the community. I really wish I didn't have to spend to much time debunking false and misleading claims, but I just can't bear to leave them alone either.
Hennessy argues, I think convincingly, against the prospects of running a third party candidate:
He thus concludes that the only option available for tea party activists is to "infiltrate and rehabilitate" the GOP by generating a strong turnout in the primary races:
Every state has an array of laws to thwart the rise of new political parties. These laws were written by party insiders for party insiders. While we can decry this reality and demand it change, it won’t change in time for us to stop the White House communists from turning the USA into an oversexed version of the Soviet Union.
Remember that each of the conservative 3rd parties–Libertarian, Constitution, etc.–has been largely unsuccessful in running candidates in races with larger geographic coverage than municipal elections. Would that change if everyone who calls himself a Tea Partier supported, say, a Libertarian candidate? No. Here’s some math. While the 10,000 people who came to Kiener on April 15 may represent 100 times as many tea-partiers-at-heart, there STILL aren’t enough tea partiers to defeat both major parties in any Congressional or state-wide race.
The primary election is usually where you’re guaranteed to have at least one non-evil candidate on the ballot. Moreover, you voice is stronger in the primary because so few people vote. In 2008’s general election in Missouri’s 3rd district, your vote competed with over 300,000 others. In the Republican primary next year, that same vote will compete with about 40,000, assuming turnout approaches 2006 levels, the last off-year election. So your primary vote is 7.5 times more powerful in the primary than in the general election.Again, this sounds reasonable. However, this analysis is quite bizarre in light of the fact that the St. Louis Tea Party has an opportunity to support a legitimate primary challenge in Missouri that fits exactly with their purported mission, yet refuses to do so. Here's what I wrote earlier about the Republican Senate primary between D.C. insider Roy Blunt and actual conservative challenger Chuck Purgason:
First of all, let's just start with the fact that Roy Blunt embodies absolutely none of the values traditional conservatives claim to endorse. He's as much of a D.C. cocktail party insider as anyone can get. He loves government pork barrel projects as long as they help his friends. And, for goodness sakes, he cheated on his wife with a lobbyist! In other words, he is the exact opposite of any ideal the Tea Party claims to stand for.Now I realize that many tea party activists live in a different reality from the rest of us, and might disagree with all of the criticisms of Blunt listed above. However, even if you don't agree with those criticisms, there are pretty huge criticisms of Blunt around that even legitimate tea party activists take seriously. For instance, Blunt was recently at an event in St. Louis County, and conservative audience members more principled than Hennessy took him to task for his policies that heavily relied on taxpayer money. From Jo Mannies' article, we see that audience members were critical of the following:
Not only that, but Blunt has a primary challenger, Chuck Purgason, who is a legitimate conservative. He's opposed to earmarks. He's opposed to having family members be lobbyists. He was opposed to TARP. And most importantly in this context, Purgason but not Blunt endorsed Hoffman and even donated money to Hoffman's campaign. In other words, Purgason did exactly what the teapartiers  were asking, while Roy Blunt completely ignored them.
-- Blunt's support for the first part of the bank bailout approved a year ago under Bush, and Medicare Part D, the prescription drug benefit that went into effect in 2006.In other words, Roy Blunt can not be considered to embody the stated tea party values in any way, shape, or form. On the other hand, his primary challenger Chuck Purgason does. Yet despite these glaringly obvious facts, Hennessy refuses to even acknowledge that Purgason is challenging Blunt in the primary. And he can't even claim that this is because it is an unwinnable race for Purgason. A recent poll showed that Blunt is struggling to crack 50% of Republican support against Purgason despite the fact that very few people know who Purgason is. If the St. Louis Tea Party got behind Pugason, that could all change.
-- He also got jabbed for voting in favor of the "cash for clunkers" program earlier this year that offered federal aid of up to $4,500 to get older cars off the road.
Now I personally don't have any problem with the St. Louis Tea Party supporting the GOP establishment based on their political values. Nor would I have any problem with them challenging the establishment. But surely we can all agree that it's completely ridiculous for them to be claiming to boldly challanging the establishment when in fact they are meekly supporting it. Support whatever you want, but at least be honest about it.
A few weeks ago, Hennessy claimed that it was time to "put up or shut up." Actually, it looks like he's rejected both options. Instead, Bill Hennessy has decided to change the subject and distract his supporters with shiny objects in hopes that they won't notice that he's been supporting the GOP establishment all along.

theboneblog Leave it to @dloesch to misunderstand collective bargaining agrmnts. Union isn't 'after' a scout, it's 'after' the city for CBA violation.
theboneblog Most CBAs have specific clauses prohibiting employers from farming out bargaining unit work. If a scout's doing BU work, it's prohibited.
theboneblog And if the union allows the scout to do the work w/o filing a grievance, the union's position is weakened in the future in similar circs.
theboneblog So rather than the union bullying a scout, it's simply protecting its position and enforcing the contract.
theboneblog So in answer to @dloesch/Malkin's question posed re: trumping Obama's service message to kids, YES, a contract would trump that. As it should.
Let's hear it for Twitter! Actually, I bet if she tried, @theboneblog could probably take out most of Loesch's blog posts in single tweets. In fact, some of Loesch's arguments are so bad, they could probably be refuted on Vowler.

You can see McArthur's initial campaign kickoff announcement for Martin here:
And here's the video where McArthur uses the racial slur "raghead" (start watching at about 1:30, he uses the term around 1:43):
Of course, Dana Loesch happily promoted the speech:

Why do you hate capitalism? Teabaggers respond to leader Bill Hennessy's suggestion to Boycott Everything
- One day, Robin Carnahan was observed walking down a sidewalk passing a member of ACORN. Carnahan was overheard to say "good day" as she passed by, but three hours later only said "hello" to a different person passing by.
- A frame-by-frame statistical analysis of a fundraiser attended by Carnahan and a member of ACORN revealed that Caranhan was smiling 42% of the time when the ACORN member was in the room but only 39% of the time when the ACORN member was not in the room.
- One time, when a person said to Carnahan "ACORN is the spawn of Satan, sent forth to usher in the apocalypse," Carnahan responded by saying, "well, that's a little extreme."

- Make no purchases on November 27, Black Friday, except for basic necessities like food and gasoline
- Commit to a single gift for members of immediate family only. For adult family members, consider making something of meaning
- From now until the end of the year, focus on three things: God, Home, Family.
- If you have vacation available, consider taking it before Christmas
- Put off major purchases if at all possible. This includes cars, appliances, and the like. Instead, hire local, independent mechanic or handyman to bring the ailing items up to serviceability
- Beginning making very large contributions to worthy opposition candidates, especially for the House of Representatives and U. S. Senate.
- While many people are committed to specific charities, most charities will become arms of the government if this slide to the left continues. So consider giving less to charities and more political candidates, remembering the tax implication of that decision.
- Stop going to grocery stores. If you can't find enough food via hunting and gathering, only buy your food from teabagger approved merchants. If there aren't any in your area, you should order food to be delivered, but make sure you use FedEx so that the government run Post Office doesn't insert microchips into your food.
- Stop driving cars. Funnel out all of the remaining gasoline from your cars and dump it on your lawn. What use is green grass in a world run by socialist pigs?
- Sell all of your worldly possessions and then donate the money to good Christians like Roy Blunt, who only leave their wives for really good lobbyists.
- While we're at it, we should boycott vision as well. Vision makes you see horrible things that can't possibly be true, like a TV screen that shows Doug Hoffman losing his congressional race to a Democrat who supports the public option.
- In fact, don't move at all. Just sit and wait for that exciting day where God starts chucking lightning bolts at Evil Sinner Communists.

Just left the opening of the MO - OFA office, got a great footage of Tea Bagger nuts debating little kids on bikes. These people are insaneApparently, they weren't very successful arguing in person, so the teabaggers have taken their epic battle to the internets. Adam Sharp took the below picture inside the new Organizing For America office of a letter from a elementary school kid:
Here's what Sharp had to say:
Look closely the child who wrote this wishes that Obama would "Free people FROM the Army." I thought we had an all volunteer Army, I didn't realize our Soldiers needed to be "freed".Oh SNAP! That kid got burned! Looks like Mr. Sharp Elbows, Dull Wits and the St. Louis Tea Party have finally found their intellectual equals. On second thought, that's being pretty unfair to the schoolchildren.
Check back at Peter Glickert's Twitter account for some footage of the interactions.

we are coming for you.and
we will vote you out! We will come at you with so much heat, you won't even know how to handle it!I was skeptical at the time, and I said it would be interesting to see whether the tea party actually "put up or shut up." Well, they failed miserably in their over-the-top threats to Republicans, and not just because their campaign managed to lose a House District to a Democrat that Republicans have held for over a hundred years (NY-23).
First of all, let's just start with the fact that Roy Blunt embodies absolutely none of the values traditional conservatives claim to endorse. He's as much of a D.C. cocktail party insider as anyone can get. He loves government pork barrel projects as long as they help his friends. And, for goodness sakes, he cheated on his wife with a lobbyist! In other words, he is the exact opposite of any ideal the Tea Party claims to stand for.
Not only that, but Blunt has a primary challenger, Chuck Purgason, who is a legitimate conservative. He's opposed to earmarks. He's opposed to having family members be lobbyists. He was opposed to TARP. And most importantly in this context, Purgason but not Blunt endorsed Hoffman and even donated money to Hoffman's campaign. In other words, Purgason did exactly what the teabaggers were asking, while Roy Blunt completely ignored them.
Yet despite all of this, there has been absolutely no mention of Purgason's campaign on either Bill Hennessy's or Dana Loesch's blogs. If they are truly committed to only having "real conservatives" running for office, why would they completely ignore the only actual conservative in the Senate race? Why would they support a candidate that anyone from either party would agree is your typical D.C. politician only out for himself?
The reality is that Hennessy and Loesch won't attack Blunt because they are just like Blunt. They see an opportunity to further their own careers by playing a certain part in the media and systematically deceiving the people who read their blogs. If they make a claim that turns out to be false, they'll just ignore it and move on to the next scandal. They talk all blustery and angry to try to rile up their supporters, but they're not really willing to take on any powerful members of the GOP. They picked NY-23 for a reason; because it was far enough away that they knew their political theater wouldn't have any real effect on the local business-as-usual Republican Party.
The email tells interested parties to contact Sarah, and as you can see in the blue circle "Sarah" links to the email firstname.lastname@example.org . A little googling of that email quickly reveals that Sarah is Sarah Brooks, who is one of the biggest promoters of Orly Taitz's birther conspiracy theories. Here are a few examples.
From Orly Taitz's website:
And here's Brook's bragging about getting a Missouri Representative to sign on to Taitz's failed lawsuit against Obama:So, if you're not doing anything this weekend, and you'd like to listen to loonies rant for hours on end about how Obama is a secret Marxist Muslim Terrorist from Kenya, you should definitely hitch a ride on the St. Louis Tea Party Express!

Russ Welcomes Keith Ellison to TownOf course The Right, like Steven Colbert, always likes to pretend that they're all post-discrimination and that if it weren't for that darn liberal "political correctness" nobody would ever notice race or religion. But of course NOBODY in town freaked out about Ellison's visit except Adam Sharp, which raises a few questions:
Who can win tons of votes in MO's 3rd District? The only guy EVER to be sworn in on a F'ing Koran! Now That's Missouri values.
Why did Sharp think it was so important to note that Representative Ellison was sworn in on a Koran?Most of us have pretty good guesses about the answers to those questions, which is why the teabagger movement is so repulsive to the vast majority of Americans.
Why does he think that having a Muslim Congressman at a fundraiser is somehow at odds with Missouri values?
Because, you know, he doesn't actually know any Afghanistan Vets from his district who support his candidacy, but he's sure there must be some out there somewhere.

And seeing as how it's the day after Halloween, we can now evaluate just how strong Martin's campaign really is:
Awww, so sad. He only got to 234, leaving him over 1/5 short of his stated goal. And just to give this some perspective, Russ Carnahan has twice as many supporters despite not putting out a call, and the Bring Back Mr. DeLong group that was created in response to a teacher being suspended for assigning a scientific article about homosexuality is over 1,700 people in less than a week. Martin's campaign is truly weak, but of course we all know that his campaign is not really about winning, but rather trying to help the Senate race.

Most seriously, we broke the story that Gateway Pundit (Jim Hoft) linked to race-baiting videos from White Supremacist sites on multiple occasions and refused to de-link the supremacist youtube channel even after being told about it.
We've documented numerous, numerous, falsehoods and ridiculous statements from radio host Dana Loesch.
We noticed Bill Hennessy triumphantly announcing a guest on the Daily Show who, errrr, wasn't really a guest on the Daily Show.
We've documented teabaggers who don't know the difference between public options and single-payer, but are still vehemently, reflexively against anything Obama supports.
And we've documented as the teabaggers continuously try to mislead their readers despite all evidence to the contrary.
It actually would be quite easy to write more, but there's just not enough time in a day to catch all of the lies and propaganda that come out of their sites.
