Look For This Buzzword Over the Next Four Years....

"Obama recession."
Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh continue to suggest that President-elect Barack Obama is to blame for the decline in the stock market, referring to the state of the stock market as an "Obama recession." In fact, analysts have refuted the proposition that the market decline has anything to do with anticipation of Obama's presidency.

Of course it's stupid. Of course it has no basis in reality. Of course, it's started before Barack Obama has even taken office.

But mark my words, the wingnuts are are going to call this nothing but the "Obama recession." Because the truth means nothing to them.

These are the same people who insisted that Sarah Palin was qualified to be President if anything happened to John McCain because she lived closer to Russia than anyone in the Lower 48. These are the people who held up Joe the Plumber as a symbol of the horrors of an Obama tax plan, even though he isn't really a plumber, his name isn't really Joe, and he'll actually do better under Obama's tax plan than McCain's, a fact that's been proven over and over.

But they just keep on lying.

This fight isn't over.

You're right, the fight isn't over, and we can't let down our guard. The wingnuts are nothing if they're not loud, and they can drown out the voices of reason, if we let them.

Kneecap 'em, I say.

Bizarre, isn't it? How much persistence there is in hatred?

Of course, Limbaugh gets paid for his lies and crimes. He comes from a long line of scoundrels and horse thieves in Missouri; he's found himself the perfect scam.

And, as we all know, Barack Obama was the fetal mastermind behind the Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test, Watergate, the Red Scare, Germany's invasion of Poland, Herbert Hoover's 73% income tax rate (Yanno, the same rates that made Reagan go, "Um, dude, that FDR guy kinda had a point."), Prohibition...

aaaannnnd METHODISTS!

And don't forget that Palin was also "Commander and Chief" of the Alaskan National Guard. I'll bet Bob Graham is kicking himself for not grabbing that during is run for the Presidency.

"Crap!" he growls. "I commanded the Florida National Guard in our struggle against Cuban infiltrators, and I plum forgot to mention it!"

One of David Letterman's best moments was when he got Limbaugh to admit he got a job because his father owned the radio station. Now that's rugged individualism.

Here, this is incredible, someone put together all the talking heads from the last couple of years talking about how sound the economics are. One guy disagrees and they laugh him off the screen:

Limbaugh is a pill popping, Costa Rican whore screwing, liar. He has been debunked and exposed repeatedly for years but still keeps going.
