The Poor Man quotes Mitch McConnell, speaking at CPAC, the right-wing drooling loon-fest:

…[W]ho wants to hang out with guys like Paul Krugman and Robert Reich when you can be with Rush Limbaugh?

Wait, wait, that’s not the funny part (although it is pretty hilarious). The funny part is TPM’s response:

I’ll say this, Rush definitely has the better drugs.  So in a sense, yeah.  But only in the sense that certain insufferable pricks become momentarily sufferable if they’ve got the good gear.  I’ll do blow with Hitler if he’s got the uncut shit.

These people are just fucking insane. They don’t seem to understand that no sane person would worship a God who wants little babies to get AIDS so mothers can “feel guilt” and “see the negative consequences of that promiscuity.”

It almost makes me wish I believed in any sort of god, so I could take some comfort in the knowledge that He or She or It would smack these fools upside the head when they reached the Pearly Gates. “No, you idiot! You got it completely backwards!”

At first I thought this was a joke:

The ubiquitous Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher, aka “Joe the Plumber” and “Joe the War Correspondent,” will soon add a new moniker to his profile — “Joe the Economist.” Politico reports that House GOP congressional aides decided to invite Wurzelbacher to a meeting on the stimulus in hopes that it will attract some media attention

But no. It’s apparently for real.

I certainly hope that at least some Republicans are profoundly embarrassed by this. But I’m not holding my breath.
