The Tea Baggers never cease to amaze me. They have the audacity and blatant hypocrisy to criticize the Democrats for shouting their glee over Rush Limbaugh's hospitalization. Personally, I think such behavior is wrong and I wish we wouldn't act like such ninnies - except among us chickens.
We are supposed to be more civilized. Like every other liberal, I think the man is despicable and the Tea Baggers lower than the bottom of a pile of muck. But we should avoid their wretched un-American, un-Christian kind of behavior.
Even the former pain pill addict has been guilty of mud slinging once or twice. When Jerry Garcia died, Limbaugh called the talented musician "just another dead doper." Hm, there is a difference here.
Before Edward Kennedy died, the ultra-conservative forecast that the ailing senator would be dead before health care reform passed. After Kennedy's death, Limbaugh gloated over his prescience, "I predicted it, and I caught all kinds of grief for it out there."
But the Tea Baggers went on their merry vicious way. When 70,000 of them gathered in Washington last month, December 2009, they had the absolute barbarity to carry signs advocating the death of the president of the United States. "Bury Obama with Kennedy." Now, that's mighty Christian.
Just days after several Republican Senators joined the usual suspects among the religious right in a "prayercast" to plead to the Almighty for the defeat of health care, Oklahoma's Tom Coburn on the eve of the Senate health care vote declared. "What the American people ought to pray is that somebody can't make the vote tonight."
Then there are the right-wing threats and conservative pleas which in ways subtle and not seek the death of the President of the United States.
Just one episode should suffice to tell the tale. With the buttons, bumper stickers and teddy bears displaying "Pray for Obama: Psalm 109:8," Obama haters were turning to the Bible to "let his days be few; and let another take his office" and "let his children be fatherless, and his wife a widow."
Again, these good Christians are committing treason as well as using the Bible to advocate death.
Crooks and Liars also recommends that these holier-than-thou patriots should review another part of the Bible: "Let him who is without sin cast the first stone."
I don't want to get on a soap box, but all my life there are only a few things that push my button: lying, hypocracy, treason and using religion and the Bible to advocate the death of the president or anyone else.
AMERICA: LOVE IT OR LEAVE IT (sound familiar?)
