For a Bunch of Sheep They Sure Make A Lot of Noise

It is good to see the DNC trying to shed a little light on these nut-fests.
It was wishful thinking that the fringe conservative cranks would have the foresight of their poster mother Sarah Palin to bow out of politics and return home to their humble grumblings over processed foods and slackjawed screenings of 24. However, the latest exhibition of white trash mobs leave little doubt that we’ve not seen the end of this disaffected bunch.

Easily roused by their gascon champions of the airwaves, these dunderheads seek out rallies and town hall meetings to rankle politicians and call attention to their pet issues. They bleat, croak and even growl about Obama’s birth certificate. They squeal about “socialism” taking over the country. These disciples of grandstanding blowhards rant and rave as if their long-sought rapture was actually at hand.

They are blinded by their own ignorance. They can’t see how they are being used, conveyed to rallies, to merely oppose for the sake of opposition. They are the fanatical puppets of Washington’s greediest corporate lobbyists. They are the pawns in the assault to maintain the status quo.

They envision themselves as patriots but they are merely sycophantic crackpots who sabotage legitimate discourse and debate by simply cranking up the volume and vitriol of their idiocy and rancor.

Thankfully this is only a marginal group. Like their counterpart whack jobs on the far left they don’t constitute a majority. Despite their intensity and bitterness they are about as effective as Sarah Palin has proven to be (wink wink, snap, tongue-click, point!)
