Some people have drinking problems; Judson Phillips of Tea Party Nation seems to have a thinking problem. In his latest missive, he stirs up a frothy mix of bad math, false assumptions and lies to claim that more than a million Democrats voted twice in the 2012 election, ensuring Obama the win.

I don’t know who it was that first observed that Glenn Beck has a bad case of Nazi Tourette’s syndrome, the tendency to blurt out “Nazi” as an accusation against those one disagrees with. Tea Party Nation leader Judson Phillips seems to have the same affliction. And even criticizing him for this trait is, to him, proof that someone is a Nazi — even if the person doing it is Jewish. In an email to supporters he writes:
Judson Phillips, leader of Tea Party Nation, claims to love the U.S. Constitution. He also doesn’t seem to understand anything at all about how it works. In his latest jeremiad, he displays his ignorance like a peacock displays his feathers when talking about the debt ceiling fight.

You gotta hand it to Judson Phillips, the absolutely deranged leader of Tea Party Nation. If he’s going down, he’s going down with a fight. Hell, he still thinks Romney can be sworn in as president in January. And he has a delightfully cockamamie plan for making that happen. And he’s publishing it, naturally, at the Worldnutdaily.

Judson Phillips, head of Tea Party Nation, continues his perfect track record of utter delusion while throwing a temper tantrum over the fact that the White House put out a routine press release about the fact that Muslims are making the hajj, or pilgrimage to Mecca, this week.

Tea Party Nation leader Judson Phillips is angry at the execution of Troy Davis. Not because we may well have put an innocent man to death but because it took so long to do it:
Troy Davis was on death row for twenty years. He was given a trial by a jury of his peers and then had countless opportunities to relitigate his death penalty.The justice system was not broken.
On second thought, may be it was. For twenty years, he sat on death row while Mark McPhail’s family had to endure all of the appeals. Perhaps the question we should be asking is why does it take twenty years and an untold amount of taxpayer money for justice to be delivered?

Tea Party leader Judson Phillips proves, once again, what a buffoon he is and Matt Steinglass calls him out on it. Phillips actually wrote an article on his Tea Party website arguing for more military spending because it creates jobs. But apparently only military spending creates jobs. Phillips writes:
If we decided to build a couple of new carriers, thousands of workers would be hired for the shipyards. Thousands of employees would be hired for the steel mills that would provide the steel for the hull and various sub contractors would hire thousands. Do you know what that means?It means they would receive paychecks and go out and spend that money. That would help a recovery. That is a shovel ready project!
Increasing spending for the military does a couple of things. It not only not only stimulates the economy, it protects our nation. That is a better investment than say spending money on teaching Chinese prostitutes how to drink responsibly.
Judson Phillips, leader of the Tea Party Nation, says liberals have been just plain mean to Michele and Marcus Bachmann.
The liberal freak show is coming after Michele Bachmann. That is not much of a surprise. Bachmann is running a very disciplined campaign, encouraging conservatives and running with a conservative agenda. But now the left is coming after her.The left wants to use the gay rights issue against her. Bachmann’s husband, Marcus is a therapist and according to the left, he has committed a horrible crime. He used therapy to help gays who did not want to be gay any more change.

Judson Phillips, the leader of Tea Party Nation and a major league wingnut, went on Newsmax TV and said that Republicans should shut down the government if it tries to treat non-American medical personnel who contract the Ebola virus in Africa.
Judson Phillips of Tea Party Nation isn’t the sharpest knife in the drawer, to say the least. Which is why no one should be surprised by this juvenile tweet:
Sports teams are named after something admired.That’s why there is no sports team named the Democrats or the liberals.
Right. Unlike all those sports teams named the Republicans or the conservatives. Be quiet, Judson; adults are talking.
Alex Jones isn’t the only one coming up with crazy conspiracy theories about the Boston Marathon bombings. The Worldnutdaily and other right wingers have a new one: Obama is deporting that Saudi student for “national security reasons” as part of a coverup. Tea Party Nation leader Judson Phillips, who is nuttier than a jar of Jif, repeats this nonsense:

When most people go Godwin, they try to at least leave themselves some sort of rhetorical out — “hey, I was just comparing some small thing, not calling my opponents Nazis.” Judson Phillips, leader of Tea Party Nation, jumps right into the deep end of the pool:
