I was talking about this earlier today while recording a BHTV episode with Ross Douthat, but I think it’s genuinely too bad that so much of the right-wing’s energy is dedicated to idiotic made-up stuff. There’s presumably some insidious goings-on inside anything as enormous as the United States government and people need to look into that, and the ideological adversaries of the incumbent administration are logical candidates. Instead we’ve got:
— Andrew Breitbart discovers Dixiecrats: “Tea Party demand: Will the Democratic Party condemn its racist KKK roots on national TV?”
— Jim Lindgren exposes the totalitarian implications of Michelle Obama’s birthday email about her husband.
— The Weekly Standard exposes . . . something unclear about John Podesta’s not-at-all secret support for UFO disclosure.
— Newt Gingrich battles a made-up looming sharia takeover of Minnesota.
That’s just stuff I came across today, none of it written by Andy McCarthy or Jonah Goldberg!
