Just how freakin' stupid are some of these Blogging Tories?
Well, that wasn't long in coming, was it? Apparently, there's a new meme in the Wankersphere, explaining how it's not such a big deal that batshit crazy evangelical Pat Robertson called for the political assassination of Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez 'cuz, ya see, several years ago, Clinton advisor George Stephanopoulos suggested killing Saddam Hussein. And, sure, you can see how these two situations are completely equivalent.
On the one hand, we have Saddam Hussein, brutal dictator who invaded Kuwait prompting the First Gulf War, constantly threatened America and its interests and tortured and killed numerous of his own citizens.
On the other hand, you have Chavez, the freely and fairly-elected leader of his country, who ran on a mandate to share his country's oil riches with the less fortunate of its citizens. Yeah, I get the two of them confused all the time as well.
I need to come up with another word here, as "stupid" doesn't begin to do these folks justice. And, no, I'm not done here, but I can only deal with overwhelming idiocy in bite-size pieces.
