Following the inauguration of Barack Obama last month, listening to right-wing media spewing a fountain of white noise in response has become downright comical.
Take the Drug-Addled Gasbag (AKA: Rush Limbaugh) for example.
Despite my longtime distaste for the man--and anyone who makes a living on disinformation--more often than not, I could respect Limbaugh's ability to phrase his positions in a clever way. However, during the first Obama Administration's early days, Limbaugh's has been spinning so madly (against the Stimulus, et al) that picking out his lies isn't even a challenge anymore. Like a poor medieval farmer, wagons loaded with horse dung are all that Limbaugh has to offer, not that his advertisers or shallow legions of "dittoheads" are likely to notice.
Yet true to form, Limbaugh's right-wing media wannabes in Ann Coulter, Michelle Malkin, Sean Hannity, Charles "Vegas Train" Krauthammer, and the laughable Dick Morris are right there beside him, forecasting doom around Obama like two-bit druids while offering nothing in the way of practical alternatives.
I don't know exactly what is in the GOP's future, but if its morons like the above who are leading the way (plus Michael Steele, and his bold plan to energize the Party of Lincoln thru hip-hop and "one-armed midgets") it's beginning to look a lot like a boardwalk freakshow.
If I were them, I'd start praying six months ago.
