Sadly, not so unbelievable

Florida GOP Chair Jim Greer, who’s completely and utterly beclowned himself by doing some of the first and freakiest of the  hysterical, spittle-flecked, batshit berserk fearmongering about Pres.Obama’s FascistNaziJihadistSocialist Indoctrination Speech©®™ to schoolchildren, has read the speech and changed his tune:

It’s a good speech,” Florida GOP chairman Jim Greer said Monday.  “It encourages kids to stay in school and the importance of education and I think that’s what a president should do when they’re gonna talk to students across the country.”  […]

And you knew it was coming — the insipid, cowardly, cover-your-ass “But”:

“This was clearly moving in a direction that would have not been satisfactory to me as a parent, and I know many other parents across this country.  The White House has changed, the Department of Education took it all out, but when they submitted it, when they sent it out, when they created those lesson plans – the objections from me, the statement from me, and the objections from many other parents was warranted and they should’ve thought about it more carefully before they tried it.”

Right, it wasn’t the speech, the contents of which were a complete mystery to these shrieking nitwits, it was the Nazi Lesson Plan, with those deadly instructions to “write a letter about how you can help the President” (which really means “Rise up tonight, my young Obots, and stab your dumbass Republican parents to death with Bic pens!”)

Of course, Greer neglected to explain why it was okay for Bush 41 to ask kids to write letters about how they could help him.

    I wrote about this in my blog this evening. Mostly making fun of them because they do lend themselves to it.
    Just when I think I’ve seen everything outrageous from the American Right; something else ridiculous that comes up.
    How low can they go, teaching their kids to hate? I wonder if the typical bedtime stories of fairy tales, fables & nursery rhymes have been replaced by horror stories of the Socialist boogie man under the bed & in the closet?

    CK, when they watch “It’s A Wonderful Life” at Christmas, they are cheering for Mr. Potter.

    Just when I think I’ve seen everything outrageous from the American Right; something else ridiculous that comes up.

    I’ve given up thinking that they’ve hit the bottom of the barrel — “the barrel” is bottomless with these bozos.

    I was pondering this last night, how they can be so ill-informed about almost everything. It doesn’t seem possible, in the internet age, to be so stupid. But these are people who lack intellectual curiousity — they find information sources that tell them what they want to hear (which is what they already believe), and that’s all they ever listen to. Anything else is suspect.

    That’s the big difference (that I’ve noticed, anyway) between smart Americans and dumb ones — the smart ones are well-read, well-traveled, or at least have a healthy interest in what goes on outside their borders. The dumb ones are very insular.

    Dr.Prole – Ain’t that the truth. I’ve never seen people turn against their own self-interest so completely and mindlessly.


Wait. What?
