HANNITY: Look what we have -- I always say, what you are going to replace it with? Egypt -- they didn't think the Muslim Brotherhood would take it over! This is a known terror organization! We say we are fighting a war on terror!

There are literally more connections to the Tea Party and terrorism than there are to the Muslim Brotherhood and terrorism. That isn't even hyperbole. They're just not a terrorist organization - not even close.

McCain had no idea, 12 years ago. He figured he could overlook some of them a few years after that when he hugged W. 4 years ago he thought he could embrace and ignore them by picking Sarah Palin. But that would have swallowed him up.

From another article:

A Barack Obama win in November will lead to a meltdown within the Republican Party, said Bryan Fischer, an influential official at the American Family Association. And he isn't too optimistic about Mitt Romney's chances.

"If Barack Obama wins this election the Republican Party as we know it is finished, it is dead, it is toast - you can stick a fork in it," he told TPM Friday at the Values Voter Summit in Washington. "And conservatives, grassroots conservatives, are either going to start a third party or they are going to launch a hostile takeover of the Republican Party."


McCain is probably relieved at not having to pander to them anymore. If they lose this election, this guy writes, they want to get crazier:

"I think if Mitt Romney loses this election that the pro-family leaders in the United States should get together with Rick Perry on Nov. 7 and start planning for 2016," he said.

Operation: Purge will commence.

From the interview I saw yesterday ( or was it this morning?) I think he knows the crazy train has passed him by. When pushed to play party politics he declared something to the effect of I'm the loser so what I think doesn't matter. "I'm the loser" is a direct quote.

These god fearing Americans will not rest until every other American is as scared of things as they are. Only when Americans are truly panicky and ready to lash out in ignorance at anything we don't understand or is different from our beliefs will they have done a fine job of saving America.

I will not watch that. I live in as much of a Hannity-free zone as I can. I read the transcript. I can imagine the smug little weasel faced asshole spouting off about shiat he knows very little about.

If I walked into a room and saw Sean Hannity, Karl Rove, Eric Cantor, Mitch McConnell, Mitt Romney, John Boehner and Paul Ryan, my first thought would be to wish for more fists to throw punches with.

My second thought would be to hit Hannity first, followed by Cantor.

I have a feeling that whoever is Al Quaeda's #2 guy (life expectancy: 11 minutes) today probably doesn't think of himself as a terrorist. They probably consider themselves culture warriors, taking the actions they consider necessary to arrive at whatever political/religious/legal goal they consider to be a moral imperative.

Consider how many religious conservatives gave personal, financial, and public support to Eric Rudolph, and called him a hero, wrote songs about him, and even cut their own frigging arm off as a demonstration of support, after he killed several people in multiple bombings which he committed in furtherance of a political and religious goal.

Someone demonstrate some gap between the stated goals of Eric Rudolph or Timothy McVeigh, and the tea party as a whole, and I'll be more inclined to agree.

"I don't think I was wrong about Libya at all" - Hannity

What a surprise.
 
2012-09-14 04:29:01 PM  
HANNITY: All right, so I am beyond outraged, angry, Senator. Here we have, our embassy is attacked, our flag ripped down, chanting, you know, that is going on in support of al Qaeda, et cetera, and the official position of the Obama administration through their State Department, for anywhere between 10 and 16 hours is we apologize to them!


It's all the same to Hannity. Not necessary to know the actual players and motives. If they're brown people, that's good enough for him! And it should be good enough for America!

Unbelievable that McCain is the real statesman with the cooler head here. Especially given his own (impossible to understand) criticisms of the Administration at the time of the Libyan intervention.

Not to mention that he's continuing to spout the myth that the apology issued (without state department approval) by the embassy was about the attack. It came BEFORE the attack.

The Muslim Brotherhood is a Pan-Islamic group of super religious, hardline Muslims that is run by a bunch of upper Middle class lawyers, doctors and religious leaders and financed by really, really rich Islamists. Their official line supports non violence and they try to enact their policies by getting lots of legislators elected in rural and uneducated areas by appealing to their sense of religion. They're a right wing political party, not unlike the Tea Party.

Al-Queada is a Sunni terrorist group that has next to no presence in Egypt, outside of a handful of Afghanis that moved there. They're a terrorist organization and have very little in common with The Brotherhood. I don't like either group, but the only people who are saying they are anything alike are propagandists and people who fall for propagandists' shiat. 

Also I like that you only used two people for domestic terrorist examples that were around before the Tea Party. There have been plenty since, for instance James von Brunn and Andrew Joseph Stack III. Sure didn't see any Tea Party Patriots supporting either of them, right? I know, the Tea Party didn't endorse them and are not responsible for either incident. But it's more of a connection you'll find for the MB. Calling either group terrorists is just stupid.

That's the reality.. I think it's a possibility but probably wont happen if you look at the various parties historically. There is nothing there to fill the gap.. They are going to have to rebuild though and frankly I think they might not regain the whitehouse for another 12 years which would give them time to come up with real solutions rather than whatever it is they spend their time coming up with.

I actually feel sorry for John McCain. Whether or not I agree with him, he's become a pathetic caricature of himself over the last decade and a half. The GOP keeps stringing him along, giving him just enough power and prestige to think he may have their backing, then puling the rug out from under him when it really matters.

It's like watching an abused woman keep returning to her abuser over and over again. She knows it's not right, but just when she reaches her breaking point, he apologizes and turns nice... only to beat her again the next time it suits him. She keeps hoping that the beatings will stop and she can love him enough to make him be that nice person all the time. But he isn't. And she can't bring herself to leave him.

Sad, really.

What apology?

"The Embassy of the United States in Cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims - as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions,"

Anyone who has a problem with this statement is coming out in support of religious intolerance, but it was not an apology.

Pretty sure it's just for the cameras. I think they remove all ordinary glass from the studio before his show.

If McCain wants his legacy to be anything but "gave us Palin" he should be BLASTING the 'baggers, FOXNEWS and the rest of the lunatics that have taken over his party at every opportunity. This is a start.

You know, it's funny how democracy works, Sean. Sometimes the majority don't elect who you think they should. Whether it's Egypt, or the Obama presidency that's had you on the edge of a nervous breakdown for the last few years.

Just because it's a democracy doesn't mean it's all going to go the way you would personally like, especially if you're a complete blithering idiot with no understanding of the lives that other folks live.

I swear, if the right wing and Fox got their way, they'd do away with diplomacy and just wage war against every other nation on the planet for every perceived slight and "misjudgement" of their electorate.

The purge will happen. The GOP will feign heartbreak, and usher the crazies right out the door, like that hot semi-clingy chick that broke up with all of us that one time.

I DNRTFA, but conservatives have gone so crazy it is beyond belief. They invoke Reagan on a daily basis, but Reagan pulled out of Lebanon with his tail between his legs after the Beirut base bombings. He never retaliated toward Iran (indeed, sold them weapons a few years later). If Obama did today what Reagan did in the '80s, conservatives would CRUCIFY him. Conservatives are phonies. Ignorant partisan shiat-for-brains, dick-wagging fantasy holding idiots who use nonsensical phrases like "leading from behind" (repeated numerous times on Hannity tonight)... WTF does that even farking mean? Some idiot Bush era guy suggesting that these riots would not have happened if Romney were president because his "resolve" would have prevented the rioters from acting out of 'respect for America'. What kind of mind do you have to have to buy into this rhetorical nonsense? they wouldn't have attacked if Romney were president because of their respect for America due to Romney's resolve? Who thinks that is a reasonable thing to say?
