Fox News is now ready to explain the complexities of American political life by calling in the political mastermind of the north. Hold your breath for this; Fox promised to provide Sarah Palin as a guest on Sean Hannity’s 9 P.M. show. This should bring us some much-needed comic relief.
Scanning the radio:
John Gambling needs a dictionary, a political science textbook and an education to go with it: “This is an ‘ism,’ ” said Gambling. “Communism, socialism, fascism, whatever you call it, that’s not what this country was designed to be.”
You can’t make this stuff up; I am not surprised Glen Beck actually said this since in the past he has proven just how far below normal his cognitive abilities trail: “The choice in the elections this fall,” he said, “is clear. Are you an American or are you a mouse? Are you an American or a European?”
And then there is my favorite buffoon. I am disappointed to hear he will not be leaving for Costa Rica any time soon. I understand that Costa Rica is choosy about whom they allow in; so, we are stuck with him: “We need to defeat these bastards,” said Rush Limbaugh. “We need to wipe them out. Defeat the Democrats, every one of them that voted for this bill. The bill means “leftist radicals will now be making your health care decisions, instead of your doctor. . . America is hanging by a thread.”
Moving right along to the social networks: Jay Martin used Twitter to incite violence against the President as Congress passed the health care bill Sunday night. “If I lived in DC, I’d shoot him myself. Point blank. Dead f—ing serious.” Martin shrugged off the seriousness of his statement. “If the FBI comes knocking tomorrow I wouldn’t give a f—. I didn’t do anything wrong.” I am sure his lawyer will correct Mr. Martin’s perceptions right after the Secret Service comes knocking on his door and reads him his rights.

And then there is Ann Coulter’s fiasco in Canada:
Coulter told a gathering that Muslims shouldn’t be allowed on airplanes and should take “flying carpets.” Not content with just offending once, Coulter continued mindlessly after Muslim student, Fatima Al-Dhaher challenged her, telling Coulter she didn’t have a flying carpet. Coulter responded. “Take a camel.”
Students jeered Coulter’s remarks, and showed up in mass Tuesday night let her know she was not welcome at the school. Hooray for the Canadian students. Maybe John Gambling will lend her his new dictionary so she can look up oblivious.
