I seek to cure whats deep inside / frightened of this thing that I've become

Is it wrong of me? Maybe...but I'm thoroughly enjoying the US rightwing implosion after this week's rout. Witness the reliably odious Michelle Malkin:

Sarah Palin worked her heart out. She energized tens of thousands to come out who would have otherwise stayed home. She touched countless families. I didn’t agree with everything she said on the campaign trail. But two fundamental conservative stands she took mattered greatly to me: She vigorously defended the Second Amendment and the sanctity of life more eloquently in practice than any of the educated conservative aristocracy.

And she did it all with a tirelessness and infectious optimism that defied the shameless, bottomless attempts by elites in both parties to bring her and her family down.

Shame on the smearers who don’t have the balls to show their faces.

Malkin's no fool..she thoroughly despises her audience, she's in it for the bucks, but knows that they lap this stuff up and there's potentially (a few million) dollars in it for her in the future if she pushes this line.

This is in response to Fox's increasingly bizarre 'fair and balanced' reporting that Palin didn't know Africa was a continent:

I'm not sure if I buy that at all. She's conniving and dumb but surely not that dumb..although on second thoughts maybe she is, there is voluminous evidence that points in that direction, much from her own mouth. But more likely this is just the other side swinging first, and as Malkin correctly says, McCain chose her, and that, regardless of how thick or dishonest or just plain nasty she is, really is the bottom line. That she accepted, of course, is another matter altogether and speaks unpleasant volumes about her. Surely you know when you are not up to the job. Maybe not.

can't you be somebody else? (no)
look at you described to a tee (huh)
you're a fool of many in society
I know some more, I shall go on
and continue in the song, fooled the fool*

This guy is a fool, but hell, he gets published. His odd fact free argument is just to stomp his feet and say it ain't true, with gems like:

The McCain camp simply wanted to use Sarah Palin. And the liberals are quick to tear at the flesh thrown to them. Fact of the matter is.. She scares the living crap out of the left because she is sharp, talented, independent and a quick study.

and then there is:

Like she really couldn't name a Newspaper. More like she didn't want to single any particular one out.

And I also think McCain's concession speech was thoroughly dishonest. After all the sludge and slime that he has not only been a part of, but actively encouraged, how can he stand in front of that seethingly ugly and inconsolably angry crowd, who think that American has elected a Marxist Child Murdering Terrorist because he and his ilk have repeatedly told them so, and preach unity.

If you have a spare moment and a thick skin, go to Redstate, right now it's better than The Onion or The Daily Show. These guys rock!

So you go Michelle....this will only get better as the crazies try and out-froth, and consume each other.
