Good morning, fellow travelers! It’s time to get suited up and plunge in to deepest darkest Freeperville.
Just don’t make eye contact, and everything will be ok.
Let’s open up the first drum of insanity and see what bubbles up, shall we?
Believe it or not, they’restill flogging the birth certificate non-issue.

Anyone want to guess which idiotbloggers are taking part in these nirth certifikit conference calls?
Each week a small group of people running websites and blogs dedicated to the story participate in a conference call to discuss the latest news and how to advance the story. Between 5 and 10 people call in, most of whom know little about each other except for their shared interest in Obama’s citizenship.
One of the frequent participants in the conference calls is Bob Schultz, who heads the “We the People Foundation” which has raised tens of thousands of dollars raising questions about Obama’s background and promoting Berg’s legal action with full-page ads in the Washington Times, Chicago Tribune and the conservative newspaper Human Events. The group is now eyeing buys in the New York Post and USA Today.
Schultz’s Web site, which had previously been dedicated to promoting Rep. Ron Paul’s (R-Texas) insurgent presidential campaign, hosts an array of documents and web videos offering conflicting arguments – that Obama was born outside of the United States, or that he lost his citizenship upon moving to Indonesia with his mother and step father and then must have re-entered the United States illegally.
To those of you still clinging desperately to the hope that this story will be a magic bullet that disqualifies Obama from being president: doesn’t it bother you just a little bit that you’re joining forces with Paulians and 9/11 Truthers?

I just love these guys. It’s hard to tell if they really believe this crap, or if the consequences of not playing this trope at full white-noise volume in their mental crystal radios are too hideous for them to deal with.
And by “no real news”, I assume that he means ranting about the death of Vince Foster and such…
They’ll have a conniption fit over it. Charles saw quite a while ago the potential for moonbattery in this topic, so he put the kibosh on it on his own site. A wise move, in my opinion. When imagination takes over memes develop which take a straightforward topic into dangerously goofy territory. The left is obviously playing this tendency for all it’s worth.
It tickles me mightily to watch them callingeach other “moonbats”. Personally, I think they should address this burning issue Kilkenny-cats fashion, but then I’d be out of a job.
The same could be asked of you about the constitution. I’m guessing you’ll curl up in the fetal position and refuse to fight.
Sitting on your computer all day?
What will you do?
Ok, boys – we’ll settle this once and for all.
Here – take these knives, climb down into this 15′ deep by 8′ wide hole in the ground, and settle this like men.
After there’s a victor, I can fill in the hole.
The wheels continue to come off for our amusement after the jump, so…
…wait for it…
The world as they know it is about to come to an end.
A young articulate black man handily beat an old grumpy white guy even after he pulled out his secret weapon Nanookie Of The North, the Permanent Republican Majority(tm) that Karl Rove promised them has gone up in smoke, and lassiez-faire capitalism has turned on them and bitten a large chunk out of their asses, and is now patiently waiting for them to bleed out.
Is it any wonder they’re depressed?
And could it possibly be more entertaining?
Glad you asked!
How’s that residency suit thing coming along, Freepers?

WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court has turned down an emergency appeal from a New Jersey man who says President-elect Barack Obama is ineligible to be president because he was a British subject at birth.
The court did not comment on its order Monday rejecting the call by Leo Donofrio of East Brunswick, New Jersey, to intervene in the presidential election. Donofrio says that since Obama had dual nationality at birth — his mother was American and his Kenyan father at the time was a British subject — he cannot possibly be a “natural born citizen,” one of the requirements the Constitution lists for eligibility to be president.
Donofrio also contends that two other candidates, Republican John McCain and Socialist Workers candidate Roger Calero, also are not natural-born citizens and thus ineligible to be president.
At least one other appeal over Obama’s citizenship remains at the court. Philip J. Berg of Lafayette Hill, Pennsylvania, argues that Obama was born in Kenya, not Hawaii as Obama says and the Hawaii secretary of state has confirmed.
Berg says Obama also may be a citizen of Indonesia, where he lived as a boy. Federal courts in Pennsylvania have dismissed Berg’s lawsuit.
…and told him never to darken their door again, unless he’s delivering their pizza…
Did they report it too fast for you? Or did they just use too many big words?
Maybe they should have waited until after your nap to tell you – right when you have that first sip of Long Island Tea in your mouth?
Next they’ll be fighting over who gets to wear the coonskin cap and be Davy Crockett…
You misspelled “Tickled”.
Hmm. You mean we rally around the cause, but are hopelessly outnumbered, fight on, and are all killed to the last man. But eventually the place we fought becomes a major tourist attractionand bad movies are made about our heroic stand? With my luck Jack Black would play Jack Black.
While people munch popcorn and laugh, yes.
I mean this could be the point from which things could start back to bite them in the @$$!
Who knows, there may be more out there than we suspect with operating brains and grit in their hearts—the fat broad ain’t sung yet…
Perhaps – but I hear she’s scheduled to sing at the Inauguration.
If HIS suit is dismissed, and we don’t all take to the streets, then we’re just a bunch of “fair weather patriots”!
I’m currently taking bets on the probability of these Keyboard Kommandos taking to the streets.
Offering good odds, too.
What we really have here is a case of:
You can almost understand the fixation on Supreme Court decisions that are never gonna happen, because that’s the only hope they have left now.
And now a word from Supreme Justice Bluto Blutarski !

I just phoned the State of Hawaii Dept. of Health. I told the lady that they had decided for the rest of the states that we are a nation of men, not laws. Hawaii has decided for the rest of us that Obama need not prove that he is an American citizen because Hawaii has sealed his birth records. I pledged to boycott products made in Hawaii and to never set foot in Hawaii. Then I wished her Merry Christmas. Here is the contact info: (808) 586-4400. Kinau Hale, 1250 Punchbowl St., Honolulu, HI 96813 CANCEL YOUR VACATION! HIT THEM IN THE POCKETBOOK!
Oh yeah – that’ll work.
No Hawaii vacations.
That’ll teach them. Some wingnut who will never have more than next month’s rent in his bank account calling up some perplexed tourist agent to rant and rave about birth certificates, and then cancel the Hawaii vacation that he’ll never be able to afford.
That changes everything, doesn’t it?
That sarcasm tag is getting a workout this week, innit?
Well, enough of that – how about some :Scheer lunacy!

Let the record show that it was George W. Bush, the rich Texas Republican, who brought socialism to America, so don’t blame it on that African American Chicago Democrat community organizer who made it into the White House. The government takeover of the banking and automobile industries not only happened on President Bush’s watch, it was also the deregulatory mania of this president’s family, beginning with his father, which took this country into such starkly unfamiliar territory.
What a betrayal of unfettered free market capitalism. And who would have thought that it would be the candidates backed by conservative pundits Bill O’Reilly and Rush Limbaugh who made it possible? You actually could trace the destruction of corporate capitalism to the much-ballyhooed “Reagan Revolution” of the movie actor who got his main training for the presidency as a huckster for General Electric, where he honed the message of “getting government off our backs.” The revolution of unfettered corporate capitalism led to an era of unfettered corporate greed, which sowed the seeds of its own destruction.

A reflective voice, quickly shouted down…
Yep – the great and all-powerful Wizard Of O’s has been responsible for socialism even before his birth!
That’s how powerfulhe is!
Then, I guess that whole “calling the GOP the party of Lincoln to deflect criticism for being rascists” thing is out the window now, eh? Pity, that.

It seems to be every commercial portrays the white, conservative male as a bumbling idiotic fool who can’t hammer in a nail, while his Oh-so-cool, all-together wife is so calm, cool and collected and has everything figured out!!!! It is open season on the middle-aged white, conservative male. Women and minorities are off limits… The ultimate fear for companies and ad people is to be called sexist, or worse… raaaacist!!!
I mean, c’mon, once in a while is ok and even amusing, but every time the white-male has to be made a fool of?? And who is the audience they most likely are targeting to buy their crap – is us white-males!!!!
We have all seen the PC guy/Mac commercials that portray the PC guy as an absolute fool, a little overweight, not-so attractive, while Mac guy is thin, young and sooo cool and hip (although if this is the type of guy women like, I am really behind the times – how about a shower, shave and a haircut for this hippie???)..
A few examples for your viewing pleasure:

In case you hadn’t noticed, shit-for-brains, TV has been making fun of the white male head-of-household since – oh, say – 1955 or so. You know, those golden days you yearn to return to?
It’s called parody. You take the authority figure and make him look silly.
Damn you, Hugh Beaumont! Damn you to Hell!!
Groovy! You guys can all ship your plasma flat-screens to me. Address sent.
I have noticed an influx of African American commercials since the Exaulted One was elected.
ZOMG! BBDO Worldwide has been infiltrated by the darkies! Is nothing scared??
Why can’t they all talk like Fitty Cent?
Just think – even Free republic could be affected!
Imagine opening up your web browser and seeing this:
Fibber McGee, Life of Riley, Honeymooners and on and on.
Stumble-bum Dad can’t do anything but wise Mom, and even wiser kids, can do it all.
I have to admit, as a man, I can drive a nail but it took a LOT of practice before I hug a woman and manage a four-hooker bra.

WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) — The Treasury Department said Friday that it would step in and lend funds to the Big Three auto makers until Congress has time to consider a long-term rescue package next year.
Talks on a rescue package broke down in the Senate late Thursday night, making action on a bailout impossible until 2009.

My conservative friends have been filled with cheer during this holiday season, savoring recent GOP victories and reveling in Democratic scandals. But it is far too early for them to break out the egg nog. The GOP remains in serious trouble.

Merry Christmas and remember the miry clay you were pulled out of and never have to go back into.
“The GOP is dead to me.”
Say it. Savour it.
“The GOP is dead to me.”
Now I need a cigarette.
And I don’t even smoke.
Well, folks, time once more to draw the curtains on the smoking ruins of what was once the GOP’s base – the only ones they could count on to support every horrible policy and their racist, misogynistic, addle-pated, short-sighted, self-serving, class-warfare-loving, hateful, spiteful, brainless, dickless, hopeless, heartless, fat-ass, bug-eyed, stiff-legged, spotty-lipped, worm-headed sack of monkey shit…
Sorry – started channeling Chevy Chase for a second there…
You guys all know where the exits are – me, I’m going to hang around for a while and enjoy the trainwreck that was once the GOP’s pride and joy.
(Or perhaps the crazy uncle you keep locked in the attic)
Happy to oblige.
