Via Anonymous PHD comes the Washington Monthly's Golden Wingnut Award!!
...In which Kevin Drum gets his loyal readers to vote for the most excrebal examples of lunacy they can find. OK this is fair I suppose but their choices are telling.
This was the winner...yes ladies and gentlemen this was the most awfulest thing they could find!
It's a pretty reasonable if partisan assesment of the value of an actually relevant pollution control agreement (In stark contrast to Kyoto). It's a bit snarky but damn!
THAT WAS WHAT PISSED THEM OFF MORE THAN ANYTHING?!
THAT WAS IT!??
If that was the dumbest thing a righty has written on the internet then we are unstoppable BWAHAHAHA!!!
..all yur senate seetz are bel0ng to us!!1
Alas, no, there is asshattery on the right, as even a partisan wingnut such as me points out occasionally .There is idiocy all about, so it is really bizzare that this is the best they could come up with.
Of course, the winnings post deals with what may turn out to be a considerable foreign policy and environmental step forward. It seems likely that the potential of a success for the President, the hatred of whom has consumed them utterly, is what set them off. I doubt many of the voters got past the mild sarcasm of the initial paragraph.
