1) Why aren't conservatives thanking Barack Obama for keeping us safe from terrorists?
A man named Najibullah Zazi was set to launch a terrorist attack in New York City two weeks ago, to mark the anniversary of 9/11. He was caught.
Yesterday, a man named Michael Finton parked a van in front of a courthouse downtown. Yes, right here in Springfield. He believed the van was filled with one ton of explosives, but when he pressed the button to detonate, there was no boom. Then his "partner" slapped handcuffs him. He had been working with undercover FBI agents.
2) Michelle Bachmann is still one insane bitch, and may hold some degree of responsibility for a man's murder.
Representative Michelle Bachmann believes that the government is collecting census information, so it can be used it to round up white people and/or Republicans, and shove them into internment camps.
"If we look at American history, between 1942 and 1947, the data that was collected by the census bureau was handed over to the FBI and other organizations, at the request of President Roosevelt, and that’s how the Japanese were rounded up and put into the internment camps. I’m not saying that’s what the Administration is planning to do. But I am saying that private, personal information that was given to the census bureau in the 1940s was used against Americans to round them up."
I like her logical pattern here - "For no reason at all, let me remind you of a horribly disgusting taint on the history of our nation. I am not saying that it's about to happen again. I simply wanted to bring it up for absolutely no reason whatsoever."
But internment camps are okay Michelle, because your friend Michelle Malkin thinks that we were right to round up American citizens and shove them into camps!
I love how the United States government has been conducting a census for 219 years, but only when Barack Obama is the president, NOW there is suddenly a problem. It's staggering, considering the mental gymnastics a conservative mind must go through to defend its hypocrisy.
This brings us to the census worker found two weeks ago hanged in a graveyard with the word "Fed" scrawled on his chest. The investigation is still ongoing, so I'm not going to flatout say this was politically motivated, and was directly caused by conservative rhetoric (despite how much I would like to), but you really can't deny that it still raises questions. Maddow covers it really well.
3) The "conservative base" is now the mainstream. Whether we want to acknowledge it or not, the conservative base is nothing but a bunch of racist conspiracy theorists.
Stephen Colbert covered this brilliantly last night

|The Word - Blackwashing|
"Please explain what you meant by 'white culture'."
"No. Hey, did you know Barack Obama is a racist?"
Apparently, 'ACORN' is the new word for 'nigger'.
Crooks and Liars:
...a middle-aged white man and his Asian wife chasing after and harassing a trio of black people -- primarily two teenagers and an adult guardian (possibly their mother) who were selling "Don't Tread on Me" flags along the long grassy mall.
As you can see, the man -- who identifies himself as Tim Jones -- shouts after them: "ACORN! These people are ACORN!!! They are frauds!!! ACORN is fraud!!! Obama sucks! This woman sells signs for profit of ACORN!!"
It attracts more harassers, and it verges on the point of an outbreak of violence when the D.C. bicycle police show up and break up the scene.
