Phillips Goes for the Gold in the 100 Meter Hyperbole Event

Are the Koch brothers secretly offering a billion dollars to whichever wingnut can spew the most outrageous and hyperbolic rhetoric about Obama? That may be the only explanation for the fact that so many of these people keep trying to one up each other. This statement from Judson Phillips of Tea Party Nation should contend for the money:

John Boehner and the House Republicans cannot seem to grasp the idea that Barack Obama does not simply want his name to go down on his agenda like Johnson did on the Great Society or Roosevelt did on the New Deal. Barack Obama wants to destroy America.

Underneath that grey hair lies the heart of the young anti-American Marxist that went to Occidental and Columbia. He still believes in disarming America, just as he did as a young man. He still believes America is the focus of evil in the modern world, just as he did then.

Yeah, that would explain why he’s using drones to kill untold numbers of innocent people around the world. And refused to prosecute anyone for torture. Because he believes America is the focus of evil in the modern world and he’s setting out to prove it.

About Ed Brayton

After spending several years touring the country as a stand up comedian, Ed Brayton tired of explaining his jokes to small groups of dazed illiterates and turned to writing as the most common outlet for the voices in his head. He has appeared on the Rachel Maddow Show and the Thom Hartmann Show, and is almost certain that he is the only person ever to make fun of Chuck Norris on C-SPAN.

    And when it doesn’t happen? Unfortunately, the morons with the loud voices (and radio shows) will just move on the next ‘Stupid of the Day’, and the mouthbreathing lichens that follow them will continue to believe….

    Judson Phillips:

    Underneath that grey hair lies the heart

    How does Judson Phillips know the color Mr Obama’s chest hair?

    of the young anti-American Marxist…

    So its official now. I mean, Mr Obama a just an ordinary Anti-American Marxist and not a Fascist or a Communist or a Muslim.

    I am glad. This will same the Republican Tea Party gas-passers a lot of time and energy and will avoid confusion at rallies with mixed hate messages.

    It always amazes me how the wingnutz confuse a center-right politician with Marxists.

    I think a lot of this is racially motivated. As Rodney pointed out, Obama’s policies are fairly centrist. He’d have fire right in a republican administration 30-40 years ago. If a White politician had followed the same path Obama has, there’d be no question about him wanting to destroy America from within.

    Well, when you think Attilla the Hun was a liberal pussy …

    @6: Silly and melodramatic generalizations (the “generalizations” in your case being all people who have “power” in some way) are silly and melodramatic.
