When Will They Be Arrested for Pandering on Talk Shows?

Another day, another right-wing nut contributes to our national nausea by shooting off her mouth without even giving a second thought what people might think.

And just when you think those talking heads can't get any deeper in the down-low, wait until you hear these comments from Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R-MN) on MSNBC's Hardball with Chris Matthews:

Trust me, once the likes of Bachmann opens their mouths and speak their minds, the noxious specter of McCarthyism has reared its ugly head once again. Like on the TV series "Mad Men," they're the same old political Cro-Magnons; they've only become better at expressing their true selves, ableit in code-word form. As in "Cadillac-driving welfare queen," "law and order," and "he's not one of us."

Michele Bachmann, Ann Coulter, Sarah Palin, Laura Ingraham -- They are the Paris and Nikki Hiltons of American politics -- as every bit as vapid and brainless, as every bit as narcisstic and media-whoring as an overblown Angelyne billboard on Sunset Boulevard. Take away the inflammatory right-wing rhetoric and what you have left are celebutantes, plain and simple.

Catch my drift?

Meanwhile, the right-wing-nuts are acting more like vultures devouring their own. Case in point: Kathleen Parker, a conservative op-ed columnist, received a barrage of hate e-mails from angry right-wingers because she dared to speak the uncomfortable truth: Sarah Palin is unfit and unqualified for the vice-presidency. Now why do you think Peggy Noonan's tongue is bleeding profusely after biting it one too many times?

Talk about intellectual dishonesty! Now you know why Christopher Buckley washed his hands of the National Review.

And speaking of Bachmann calling liberals "anti-American," isn't that like calling Shirley Temple Black?
