Good for American Thinker!  Acceptance is the first step toward recovery.  They may join the community of decent human beings some day after all.

It's really quite a breathtaking article.  The writing style is amazing.  I've tried to write like that, but even my best Poe's Law cannot match the real deal.  This person has taken the idea of confusing word volume for information volume to new levels.  Even Sarah Palin cannot match this body of work.  Take this article paragraph:

The Obama White House, while chilling and threatening free speech by prominent reporters, successful conservative moviemakers, governors and others who question, has now ushered in a new practice:  Unapologetic, intentional misrepresentation of facts known to be false when spoken.  This innovation represents a step beyond.  Its systematic deployment is both arresting and worrisome.  Boldly misrepresenting reality on a regular basis is either a calculated deception, or a peculiar strain of self-deception.

Summary:  Obama is a compulsive liar.

President Obama has set a new low-water mark in the annals of American democracy, upending the notion that truth matters.  The blitz to remake facts appears aimed at confusing, misleading and ultimately manipulating the public into a state of indifference and dependence.   From vilifying woodstoves and backyard ponds to claims of compliance by Iran and Syria with international accords; from the evils of a fossil fuel pipeline to asserting a presidential prerogative to choose laws to enforce; from dissembling on the Benghazi attacks and gun-dumping in Mexico to misuse of the Internal Revenue Service -- truth is a casualty.  In a headlong rush for federal control over all aspects of life, this White House spares no contortion.  Assembled in one place, the factual misstatements of this president would produce a best-seller, or perhaps elevate a federal prosecutor to new heights.

Summary:  Keystone, Benghazi, Fast and Furious, IRSgate, Obamacare.  Also, Eric Holder sucks and I hate your stupid book, Obama.

Them fruitcakes at American Stinker sleeps on their back because they think Obama is going to show up an rape them if they sleep on their belly.

Earnest projection. I really do think their entire blogging staff is permadrunk.
 
2014-04-11 09:47:43 AM  
And if anybody knows about boldly misrepresenting reality on a regular basis.....

Huh. I thought this was going to be about how conservatives don't get Colbert. Turns out it's the usual derp.

Oh, I can hardly wait to read this article!

Oh, wait... yes I can.

backyard ponds and woodstoves? I didn't realize Obama had waged war on these things.

"backyard ponds and woodstoves? I didn't realize Obama had waged war on these things."

The pond one is a reference to the jackass who damned a creek to make his "dream" pond without getting the necessary permits. Clearly, that means Barry is personally hounding this guy because reasons.

Based on your examples, I'd say maybe 2nd semester 10th grade. Maaaaybe 1st semester 11th grade.

Ooooh.... Archive.org now has a "save this page as it appears now" feature. Nice for cutting into American Stinker's click-bait revenue.

One amusing detail is the errors from the Churchill quote. Emphasis added to the omitted portion (and de-emphasis to the addition): "The truth is incontrovertible. Panic may resent it; ignorance may deride it; malice may distort it, but in the end, there it is."

Do the readers that this panders to, realize how transparent it is? But just don't give a shat? I can't imagine how anyone that agrees with them can't see how ironic this is.

Just to be on the safe side, I've added Woodstove-Vilifier to the Big Spiffy List.

I worked for a couple decades as a mental health counselor and I must say, that is litterally a more delusional wall of projection that any client ever wrote for me.
If this person actually belives this, he really should be on some serious medicaiton.
