Another terrifying glimpse into the fathomless abyss of the rightie brain — In Ohio, a sobbing woman thanked President Obama for the Affordable Care Act. Four years ago this woman, Stephanie Miller, had lost a sister to colon cancer. The sister had been uninsured and did not get proper treatment, according to Miller.
So how does the genuinely demented Jim Hoft react? BUSTED! he screams. He has proof that Stephanie Miller is an Obama supporter. Her Twitter handle is @obamasbestfan, and he has a photograph of her wearing an “I (heart) Barack” T-shirt.
This is the sort of thing that makes a rational person feel like Alice floating down the rabbit hole. You can search Hoft’s post in vain for any indication that Miller is anything but an enthusiastic Obama supporter. So what is she “busted” for? Existing?
And what does this tell us? Righties think disagreeing with them is immoral.
Elsewhere in Ohio — clearly the place to be yesterday — an anti-Romney protester is assaulted at a Romney rally. The protester was holding a sign and chanting when the Romney supporter tried to shut him up by stuffing a handkerchief in his mouth. The protester calmly spit out the handkerchief and kept chanting.
Bobby Jindal and Tim Pawlenty were the headliners at the rally, and protesters were chanting “Pawlenty Go Home.” Why they were giving Jindal a pass, I have no idea. Hoft’s reaction? “OBAMA GOONS Provoke Attack at Romney Campaign Rally.” That Hoft is a pistol.
