Civility!

Sarah Palin speechwriter and occasional pizza delivery person Dan Tubagoo explains the remarkably cunning plan behind the recent flip-flop (aka the “dope-a-dope, zig-zag”) over so-called Communistic and/or bureaucratic Obamacare “death panels” imminently threatening to terminate the former governor’s grandparents and mentally-challenged offspring.

Meanwhile, over at General Electric’s crazy left-wing propaganda outlet, Rachel Maddow takes on the issue in a somewhat more serious way…

And this just in…

Update2: If you want to know where the fellow with the gun strapped to his leg came from, check out this — it’s the magazine published by the extreme right-wing activist group egging him on. Here’s a couple of comments that seem to be fairly typical of its subscribers:

FOR KAMRAN, FOUNDER AND CEO OF NUTRITION FOR HEALTH…. WELCOME… IT LIFTS MY SPIRITS WHENEVER ANYONES ATTENTION IS PIQUED. NOW, IF TEXAS, MONTANA, OR ANY STATE SUCCEEDS FROM THE UNION, THAT WILL GALVANIZE THE ATTENTION OF AMERICANS AND THE WORLD. THESE ARE DANGEROUS TIMES BUT THERE IS HOPE THAT THAT GRASP UPON OUR THROATS FROM THIS INTERNATIONAL SOCIALISTIC (COLLECTIVIST) SYSTEM (NEW WORLD ORDER) IS WEAKENING. THERE IS LIGHT AT THE END OF THAT TUNNEL, BUT IT’S STILL A LONG ROAD. STEVE

Or this bizarre, convoluted tale of woe:

We live in upstate New York. Purchased a Subdivision in May of 1990, Just two years age I GIFTED a section of land to my son and his father to build a house, and the loan was to go through FHA because of the VA where his benefits go through this department in the paperwork and within this paperwork is a fully insured title search provided. The Federal Government told us that the subdivision was illegal, but that we have chain of title. Well now we have no legal for over 200 years, I wish to tell you that it leads to Tryon Province which takes in all of the Canadian meritimes Vermont and upstate New York. We have not been able to retain an attorney because they are members of the Bar Association this means (British Accredited Registry) this includes State and County Bar Associations, which are all owned outright by the British Crown We have notified the Royal Family, and to date have had no response. I was born in Canada by an American Mother duel citizen and my son and his father are full Native American and my son is a North America Indian. We have claimed our lands Schedule A and Schedule B (America and Canada) and the Tryon Province Deed which is a brand new country of its own. This news has been kept from everyone on this deed in all three countries. I am claiming the Crown Land for the Republic of the Tryon Province since May 2, 1990. Since this date we have been paying double taxes in two Counties and two towns, having our homes auctioned off under color of law (invalid) all over fake paperwork. (fluff over fluff) All Banks getting paid bail out monies are paying all illegal toxic paper., notes, and then these notes are are resold to a third party all over the world, so the Banks are getting paid again. (check your deeds and leases) all residential deeds are tax free and free of all debt. the rest is scam on top of scams.

And on and on it goes… Lots of totally batshit crazy, fantastically insane or just plain stupid, ignorant people out there, evidently. And many of them are armed.

Update: Tweety interviewed the guy this afternoon.

    Sarah Palin said something she regretted and quickly backed off.

    It’s impossible to pass health care in the USA from a political standpoint. You’re going to see something watered down to the point where it doesn’t mean anything if it gets passed at all.

    Every country in the world is a socialist country if you define socialism in terms of government spending. Even the US has socialism in the forms of subsidies for things that conservatives like. It’s just that for whatever reason, there isn’t enough of a significant political force that can vote to get health care passed.

  2. Perhaps, but the damage was done and the toxic meme is already out there going viral. So it’s more than a little precious to back off the statement and call for civility after having already poisoned the well of discourse.

  3. stupid sarah wasn’t the author of “death panels”; she was just parroting (it’s not as if she’s ever understood national issues) other frightwingers (i think boehner said it first; i know glenn beck had said it).

  4. gotta admit, the gun nut was better spoken than i would have thought, given his reckless behavior.

    KEvron

  5. Yep, but his answers were still quite silly and evasive. The expression on the sign he was carrying was very close to an incitement to violence: Watering the tree of liberty with “…the blood of patriots and tyrants” — come on. And carrying a loaded weapon into a Town Hall meeting? That’s just asking for trouble.

    Apparently, the guy is a self-described “independent gambling & casinos professional” who moved from Arizona to New Hampshire a while back in order to “live free or die.” Hmmm.

    I saw this Matthews interviewing this gomer and couldn’t believe that Matthews was giving him a national audience to spew his nonsense. True, the guy wasn’t monosyllablic, but what he was saying was just as obstuse and dishonest as the other knuckle-dragging tea-baggers. You’ll notice too that never answered any of Matthews questions, he’d just rephrase it so he could reguritate more of his bullshit. So congrats Matthews, you’ve helped give yet another nutter a megaphone.

  7. Ugh. Chris Matthews is a bloody buffoon.

    The guy he’s interviewing is a clod — and who else but a clod shows up to a Presidential event with a gun? — but dear. God.

    It’s called research, Chris. Find out if the guy’s a birther before you put him on TV. You’ll look less ridiculous that way.

  8. “who else but a clod shows up to a Presidential event with a gun?”

    i’m surprised he wasn’t wearing a mullet, too.

  9. And that was Kevron with an update from the “nothing worthwhile to say. Ever.” file.

    And now here’s Ollie Williams with the weather report.

  10. The fact of the matter is, the man broke no laws. None.

    THat’s ALl THere IS TO IT, KEvron. HIs BEhavior WAs IN NO WAy “REckless.”

    OR DId YOu MEan TO WRite, “WReckless”?
