Idiocy Runs Rampant on the Left and Right

The hyperbole and rhetoric is flying like diarrhea from the mouths and keyboards on both sides of the political spectrum today.

First we have an elected representative going insane in front of our eyes:

“I would like to apologize,” he said. “I apologize to the dead and their families that we haven't voted sooner to end this holocaust in America.”
He invoked an event where 6,000,000 Jewish souls died with the ongoing battle for healthcare that will benefit no one but those in the country illegally. Sounds apt.

He was "apologizing" for this over the top statement where he accused us Republicans of wanting people to "die earlier", which spewed earlier:

Wake up Rep. Grayson, us GOP'ers don't want people to die earlier, we need the great unwashed to work in our sweatshops so it behooves us to keep them kicking a little longer. Oh, and Congressman, take your meds.

On the right we have the hyper-partisan Newsmax allowing a piece of filth written by some scrub calling for a coup against Obama by the military:

What happens if the generals Obama sent to win the Afghan war are told by this president (who now says, “I’m not interested in victory”) that they will be denied troops they must have to win? Do they follow orders they cannot carry out, consistent with their oath of duty? Do they resign en masse?

Or do they soldier on, hoping the 2010 congressional elections will reverse the situation? Do they dare gamble the national survival on such political whims?
Anyone who imagines that those thoughts are not weighing heavily on the intellect and conscience of America’s military leadership is lost in a fool’s fog.

Will the day come when patriotic general and flag officers sit down with the president, or with those who control him, and work out the national equivalent of a “family intervention,” with some form of limited, shared responsibility?

Imagine a bloodless coup to restore and defend the Constitution through an interim administration that would do the serious business of governing and defending the nation. Skilled, military-trained, nation-builders would replace accountability-challenged, radical-left commissars. Having bonded with his twin teleprompters, the president would be detailed for ceremonial speech-making.
Dude? Did he just say that? What a fucking idiot. The dude was such a moron they pulled the piece. Nice editing Newsmax, that would be why I never link to them.

We suffered four years of Carter (and 29-years of mindless drivel ever since) and survived as a nation. No intelligent person would ever even conceive of a coup unless the president eschews the Constitution as happened in Honduras. If that happens, all bets are off. We're not even remotely near that point either.

The Internet has been an amazing tool for spreading thoughtful ideas and creative political thinking. Unfortunately, that didn't happen today.
