right-wing hysteria du jour

*From a NewsMax blogger: “There is a remote, although gaining, possibility America’s military will intervene as a last resort to resolve the “Obama problem.” Don’t dismiss it as unrealistic.” John Perry says he doesn’t advocate a coup, yet goes on to make the case.

*Arizona congressman Trent Franks, speaking to the “How to Take Back America” conference, labeled Obama “an enemy of humanity.” His spokesperson later clarified: Franks meant “unborn humanity.” You’d think a pro-lifer would find that redundant. (Not suprisingly, Franks is a birther.)

  1. Here’s a good read on the damaging effects of political hysteria. http://www.cnn.com/2009/POLITICS/10/07/avlon.civility/

    The author notes that while both parties are not innocent, the right wing has more quickly trounced Obama than the did the left to Bush. While I’d certainly concede that political “voices” are increasingly polarizing, 9/11 occurred during Bush’s initial term. And of course, that event brought the country together more than any other event in my lifetime. But once it became obvious what a disaster the Iraqi war was, the left was back on Bush.
