The Flip Side – Tuesday June 2nd

Posted in: Bloggers,General

One of the things we are looking to do is show what the liberals are saying about Republicans. This will be a way for our readers to see outside what is happening on the other side of the fence. Will it be a fair portrayal, probably not, we will work on finding the absurd and illustrating it. But typically it will be something seen on a larger site, such as the Daou Report or AOL Blogs or Will’s site Clicked over at MSNBC.

Well this comes courtesy of the Daou Report, and it is a doozy! From the Booman Tribune:

Even if this is an exaggeration, it is disturbing. Who are the adults that are allowing their sons to travel to Iraq and be talked into driving an explosive laden car into an Iraqi police station? Who are the Iraqis that are talking these people into ending their lives?

I’ll tell you who. Wingnuts.

Wingnuts come in two varieties and they both figure here. The first type of wingnut actually believes in his simplistic version of religion. The second type of wingnut is willing to cynically exploit the first. In fact, the second kind of wingnut relies on perpetuating a giant pool of the first type of wingnut in order to gain power and to exploit that power. Twas ever thus.

What we are observing in Iraq is a war between America’s first type of wingnut versus Islam’s first type of wingnut. Both sides are being led by the second type of wingnut.

Ah, let the sun shine in.

I am also looking for a good hippy Kumbaya song that will work with this feature. Any suggestions. Something that really captures the love the liberals share with America.
