Rick Santorum has joined WorldNetDaily, a conspiracy theory blog best known for its indefatigable work advancing the birther movement, as an exclusive columnist.
The former Pennsylvania senator, who was voted out of office in 2006, will use the perch to remain in the conservative consciousness as he eyes another presidential bid in 2016. His column will be featured on the site every Monday.
Santorum joins WorldNutDaily’s infamous cast of winguts, bigots, religious extremists and village idiots. Sharing space with the likes of Chuck Norris, Ann Coulter, Pat Buchanan, Alan Keyes, Pat Boone and Pamela Geller, Ricky should be well prepared to take another stab at the Republican nomination in 2016. Looking forward to those debates.
BuzzFeed has 31 of Michele Bachmann’s more memorable quotes. We already knew she was a ditz but there’s something unsettling about seeing her zaniness bundled up in a package…especially with the knowledge that Michele Bachmann is a Republican member of the House Intelligence Committee.
Here are a few of the juicier ones.
”(Gay marriage) is probably the biggest issue that will impact our state and our nation in the last, at least, thirty years. I am not understating that.”
”Carbon dioxide is portrayed as harmful. But there isn’t even one study that can be produced that shows that carbon dioxide is a harmful gas.”
“But we also know that the very founders that wrote those documents worked tirelessly until slavery was no more in the United States.”
”[Pelosi] is committed to her global warming fanaticism to the point where she has said she has even said she is trying to save the planet. We all know that someone did that 2,000 years ago.”
”I think there is a point where you say enough is enough to government intrusion. …Does the federal government really need to know our phone numbers?”
”And what a bizarre time we’re in, when a judge will say to little children that you can’t say the pledge of allegiance, but you must learn that homosexuality is normal and you should try it.”
”If we took away the minimum wage — if conceivably it was gone — we could potentially virtually wipe out unemployment completely because we would be able to offer jobs at whatever level.”
”Normalization (of gayness) through desensitization. Very effective way to do this with a bunch of second graders, is take a picture of ‘The Lion King’ for instance, and a teacher might say, ‘Do you know that the music for this movie was written by a gay man?’ The message is: I’m better at what I do, because I’m gay.”
Lovely. As I noted above, Republicans chose Bachmann to be a member of the House Intelligence Committee so she could use her own highly developed intellect to keep you safe from the evil forces that wish to do harm to the United States of America. Isn’t that reassuring?
And they say Republicans don’t have your best interests at heart. Hogwash.
I’m hoping Bachmann also finds her way to the Finance Committee. Anyone who can figure out how to “wipe out unemployment” in a single move (eliminate the minumum wage so jobs paying $1.14/hour become available for all), deserves a say on matters of economic significance. I’m sure you all agree.
As Andrew Breitbart’s Shirley Sherrod smear dissolved, rather than blame Breitbart for posting the deceptive clip of her speech, Glenn Beck, Michael Savage, and Rush Limbaugh ludicrously began speculating that he and the conservative media could have been the victim of a “set-up” that had been “orchestrated” by the White House.
“…is there a possibility that anybody involved is either going to use this emergency, or plotted this as a way to destroy the credibility of Fox News?“
“[I'm] beginning to believe that this entire affair was orchestrated by the government itself to smear Breitbart and the Tea Party movement.” He continued by stating that the scandal “is part of the dirty tricks campaign that the Democrats are famous for” and suggested that the Democrats had “released these tapes – these edited tapes – of the black bureaucrat through a third party or a fourth party, whispering ‘oh, do we have something for you Mr. Breitbart.’ “
“[n]ow the template is, do you deserve a phone call from the President? The White House wanted you fired. The White House didn’t listen. The White House took it out of con – The White House is afraid of Fox News.” Limbaugh continued by claiming, “For all I know, the White House orchestrated this whole thing.”
The worms cannot admit that Breitbart and Fox were the wrongdoers and so, in typical right-wing fashion, a baseless storyline is created over at the studios of Wingnut Talking Points. The hen is now the fox while the Fox is magically transformed into the poor defenseless hen…and a million wingnuts will sleep well tonight believing that truth, justice and the American way is once again on their side.

“I think we can learn a lot from that situation. Not from Tiger, but from his wife. She said she’d had enough, and we’ve had enough.”
“I think we should take a nine iron and smash the windows out.”
How long before we hear of a crazed wingnut arrested for smashing windows in a federal building with his nine iron? With all this talk of war and revolt and “fighting back”, Republicans are begging for some poor unfortunate nutcase to take matters into his hands. I don’t know, maybe like stealing a single engine plane and flying it into a building housing government offices.
I once believed Pawlenty to be one of the saner Republicans. I was wrong.

“It’s been a banner year for conservative idiocy. The ranters, the haters, the bigots, the self-loathing closet cases and prattling greed-heads were all out in force. They’ll be back again next year–you can count on it. As long as there’s money to be made peddling crap, crap peddlers won’t go away. And they’re taking no prisoners…”
