When Moonbats Attack

Daily Kos and its ilk are all frothing and foaming at the mouth over this. I listened to Jim Brady, the WashingtonPost.com editor, get interviewed by Hugh Hewitt yesterday. You can find the transcript at Radioblogger. Also check out his interview with Vice President Dick Cheney. I might post on it later, as I've been thinking of giving my 2 sense- I mean, 2 cents- on the whole "domestic" *cough, cough* *wheeze* wiretapping "scandal" (*hack* *blech!*).

The liberal moonbats are so rabid with Bush-hatred, that they've lost their mental clarity. Their desperation to gain any kind of political stranglehold on the Bush Administration has them grasping at loose straws on strawman arguments against This Administration. Anything that threatens to take away even that, from them, makes them all the more stir-crazed. Point out how they are wrong on Iraq, and they think you are attacking their patriotism; question how their judgment of today can be wrong, despite what they've done right in the past, and suddenly you are accused of "swiftboating" them. (What are they going to say, the next time they rally around a Hero to the Left, and he gets shown to be wrong, and his logic flawed? That we "sMurtha'ed" him?).

Great roundup of the Washington Post story and the moonbat meltdown, at Flopping Aces.

The left suffers from a pathology which for a long time was unnamed but has recently been called BDS (Bush Derangement Syndrome.) I think the old fashioned term lunatics, describes them about as well as anything else. To some this may seem like a laughing matter but actually it's a dangerous mindset created by a continual brainwashing since the 2000 elections. The vitriole and venom which forced the Post to shut down the comment thread is evidence that lacking any coherent argument, the left will resort to profanity, threats and intimidation against those whose ideas are at odds with the party line.

Do you have "comment moderation" turned on? I just left a comment here, but I don't see any sign of it. However, the comment section usually says "comment moderation has been turned on" or some such thing.

So just to be sure, here is what I said... (I think):

You have been aptly named, Wordsmith: "(*hack* *blech!*)" Love it! :)

The "threats and intimidation against those whose ideas are at odds with the party line" as Whit said, are happening because the left is so desperate. They got mad when they lost because they are so used to being in charge of this country. They aren't handling their losses very well. The Democratic party is no longer any semblance of what it used to be.

Gayle,

I'm not sure what happened to your comment. But I wonder if blogspot has been acting up?

I've noticed the past couple of days where I'd get a notice for new comments left...then later on, it'd repeat itself for the same comments.

As far as "wordsmith"...I forgot why I chose it, then remembered the name of this blog: "Sparks from the Anvil". So "smith" seemed apropriate. I was an English major in college, so I've always liked language...reading and writing. The "Nantucket" part? I'm not from there, but I've posted on a couple of message boards as "The Man from Nantucket", just 'cause it sounds kind of funny.

I sure wish you would post on this endless barage of the "Wiretapping" episode! I seem to be catching alot of uh I'll just say crud on my post about it.
What upsets me the most is you can post the LAW right in the lefties face and they will pick and choose out of it.
Yes Blogspot is having some difficulties.

Marie,

Some of the best stuff is gathered at Flopping Aces (just click on his tag for "wiretapping") and also Hugh Hewitt/Radioblogger has excellent analysis.

I think a lot of crucial details and facts are still unknown to the general public, and remain classified. So anyone saying anything with absolute certainty...well, nothing is for certain.

But I do feel that the NYTimes release to the public of the knowledge of this program has compromised our national security.

Marie...I just glanced over at the crud over at your place, and I think you are handling things fine! If it continues, I'll try and back you up.

Oh yes I do believe it has also. Now the enemy wont pick up the phone and dial Jihadist's-R-Us anymore! (Thank You New York Times) But I have researched, and dug as far as I can go (Me being a civilian), and I can find NOTHING that proves the President nor anyone in his cabinet did anything illegal. But you can post the LAW in front of the lefties face and they choose to ignore it!

There was a man from Nantucket...

I won't go on.

It never ceases to amaze me how supposedly "intellectual" writers, can look right at what the administration is doing regarding wiretapping terrorists, and see it as wiretapping law abiding citizens.

Could it be that their hatred for Bush overrides reason?
