Title of the week

Susan B. at LilacRose channels Cash Flagg Ray Dennis Steckler:

The Incredibly Strange Liberals Who Stopped Thinking and Became Mixed-Up Moonbats*

Yeah, I know a few of those too.

Point of order: being on the left side of the spectrum does not, ipso facto, make someone a barking moonbat. I've known too many counterexamples personally to believe that particular slander. On the other hand, the putative Reality-Based Community takes an awful lot of things on, well, faith.

A barking moonbat is not simply someone who resides on the left side of the aisle. A barking moonbat is a moonbat who, well, barks.

Ya knows 'em when ya sees 'em.

Hi Charles,

Thanks for the link! :-) Thankfully, most liberals have not turned into moonbats. It's just those who have seem to "bark" the loudest right now.

I've yet to hear from anyone referring to themselves as "Reality-Based" who wasn't in desperate need of a map, compass, GPS device, and a clue as to where reality might be found. For that matter, the vast majority could quite obviously benefit from a regular course of thorazine and a few dozen hours of ECT.

BTW... You, left? For Oklahoma, maybe, but compared to the Cambridge liberals I sometimes have to deal with you're so far to the right you'd need a good telescope just to see 'em.

Of course Fidel Castro is also substantially to their right, so I'm not really sure how much that means...

When all the voices in your head ever say is "Are you NUTS!??" -- you might be a moonbat.
