From ThinkProgress: surprise, surprise, the man who shot two police officers in front of the Pentagon was a right wing, anti-government extremist, whom the right will attempt to pass off as a left wing, 9/11 “truther.” John Patrick Bedell is the second white, non-Muslim, counting anti-IRS suicide pilot Joseph Stack, to commit a terrorist attack inside the United States in the last couple of months without being labeled a terrorist by the right.
Meanwhile, apparently authorities were warned by Bedell’s parents that he might be dangerous, and had bought a gun; echoes of the Abdulmullatab case, although without Dick Cheney looking for someone to waterboard.
Fox News isn’t waiting around for 2012 to urge Bobby Jindal, Bob McDonnell, Scott Brown, Marco Rubio to run for president.
Newsflash: Sarah Palin and her people are seriously, seriously tacky. And now, she’ll get the chance to be tacky in her own reality show! I vote we put it on BET… Meanwhile, the gifting victims are crying foul, and defending Sarah Hollywood from those evil, evil blogs. (Cue the Jay Leno-added, amplified applause track…)
Will Craig Crawford (whom I’ve always suspected was a Republican, or at the least, a conservative…) find “higher ground” on Fox News?
And let’s throw in one Democratic story, just for fun: New York conservaDem Congressman Eric Massa is quitting, after admitting he made someone feel “uncomfortable,” in a married with children but still possibly gay kind of way … (but not as uncomfortable as this!)
