I’ve seen some crazy shit in the (supposedly) conservative blogosphere, but I finally found one that left me speechless (I know!) for quite some time.
This one had to do with the bombing of the Golden Mosque.
But first, I’d like to exercise my rights as one of the “Moonbats” in this darn “reality-based” world I live in and give some perspective about the bombing:
- perhaps in excess of 100,000 Iraqi civilians have died during the U.S. occupation
- there are multiple religious groups in conflict in the ruins of Iraq
- the U.S. troops are spread thin and don’t seem to be very effectively keeping the peace
- the Golden Mosque is one of the holiest Shiite sites in the region
The last point bears repeating: so holy is this mosque that the entire country is in danger of a full-scale civil war. For all the “bleeding heart” accusations the Rightwingers make about the Liberals, for all the contorted heart-wrenching the Progressives have done over so much death, so much injury, so much violence, so much fear, so much hurt, the fine, fine folks at blogsforbush.com post an entry entitled, More Bad News for Democrats, an offensively myopic and rabid notion that the Democrats might consider it “bad news” if a civil war in Iraq is avoided.
Yes, so horribly perverse they’ve become that they can’t even celebrate the hope that civil war might be avoided! Instead, they try to paint it as a bad political turn for Democrats.
They’re humanity stretched to its lower-limits. They couldn’t find a realistic perspective with both hands and a flashlight.
Delusions of grandeur and intense paranoia might explain the rightwing blogosphere’s behavior, and maybe they’ve become this way because they’re starting to understand that keeping power requires more finesse that seizing it.
In any event, I can’t avoid the overarching sense that they’re simply despicable.
