The Fortenberry Test Case

If conservative fundraising activists reject out of hand a candidate like Jeff Fortenberry — with an 86 percent lifetime rating from the American Conservative Union — on grounds that he’s too liberal on economic issues, who on earth will they accept? Do they even care about winning elections? Are Catholic politicians only welcome in the GOP if they check their Catholicism at the door when it comes to economics? Are the only conservatives these activists welcome in the GOP those who do not question economic orthodoxy, even if they do so from a different set of conservative philosophical assumptions?

If Fortenberry runs for Johanns’ seat, his candidacy will be an interesting test case. It’s shocking to think that a Republican as conservative as Fortenberry — a Catholic Republican who has the potential to appeal to socially conservative Democrats, and, given his relative youth, to hold that Senate seat for the GOP for a long time — is not ideologically pure enough for these party activists.

Tea Party PAC FreedomWorks Produced Fake Panda-Hillary Clinton Sex Video, Because That’s How Freedom Works

The Tea Party very, very rarely lets us down in demonstrating just how tone-deaf and/or frighteningly absurd it can be. Whether it’s resident moonbat Michele Bachmann maintaining that “There isn’t even one study that can be produced that shows that carbon dioxide is a harmful gas” on the House floor, Marco Rubio’s hide-and-seek with the camera during his rebuttal to the State of the Union this week, or the self-explanatory Sarah Palin, this group wants us all to take it seriously while it continues to fumble its way into late-night monologues.

Now yet more reassuring efforts at proving just how capable they’d be if they ever managed to seize real power have come to light: According to Mother Jones, prominent conservative advocacy group and super-PAC, FreedomWorks, produced a video featuring someone dressed like a panda simulating performing oral sex on someone dressed like Hillary Clinton, in an attempt at making some political point that would probably be obscure to Salvador Dali.

For every $0.01 rise in gas prices the economy loses $1.2 billion. Gas has gone up $0.50 here in two months. That has to hurt.

Senate Minority Leader Fooled by Report in Military Version of The Onion

The best parody contains elements of truth. Which might explain how the military’s answer to The Onion suckered the Senate’s Republican leader.

Meet The Duffel Blog, if you haven’t already. A must-read for national-security nerds — and anyone who enjoys humor, really — it provides pitch-perfect military parody online, such as this piece about Syria hosting Iraq War reenactors (bylined by “G-Had”) or this one about a Google Street View Prius getting blown up in Kandahar. The Duffel Blog, as dutiful readers know, is America’s oldest online source for fake military news, founded in 1797 in a moment of farsightedness. It often gives more real talk than most legit journalistic institutions, but there is no way you can confuse it with the real news.

Unless you are a senior member of the United States Senate.

On November 14, 2012, Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) wrote to Elizabeth King, the Pentagon’s congressional liaison, with a an unusually credulous query.“I am writing on behalf of a constituent who has contacted me regarding Guantanamo Bay prisoners receiving Post 9/11 GI Bill benefits,” McConnell wrote in a letter acquired by Danger Room.“I would appreciate your review and response to my constituent’s concerns.”

Um, Guantanamo detainees getting GI Bill benefits? Yes, that’s from the Duffel Blog, as McConnell’s constituent clearly states, complete with the reference URL. Said constituent even notes that he or she can’t find any information about the alleged government payouts to suspected insurgents and terrorists.

The Defense Department does a lot of inexplicable things at Guantanamo Bay — there’s a resume-building workshop for detainees, for real — but paying detainees GI Bill benefits is not one of them.“The very idea that the U.S. government would extend GI Bill benefits to enemy detainees is a patent absurdity,” says Army Lt. Col. Todd Breasseale, the Pentagon’s spokesman on all matters Guantanamo.

The Duffel Blog piece about the fake GI Bill benefits is not subtle.“By allowing the detainees to use the Department of Veterans Affairs, we hope to completely crush their souls with bureaucracy,” it quotes a fake Pentagon spokesman saying. There’s also a false quote from Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki:“Because most ‘guests’ at Guantanamo Bay have been there nearly a decade and there is no end in site for their ‘visit,’ the Department of Veterans Affairs is ready to have their claims processed in 12-15 years as per standard operating procedure.”

At the risk of explaining the joke, the Duffel Blog’s real objective is to send up the inadequate, mollasses-slow benefits the government provides to the nation’s veterans. In other news, Garfield ate all the lasagna and now Jon is really mad.

It’s admirable that McConnell went out of his way to address a constituent’s question.“The senator’s office had a request from a constituent asking us to inquire about an issue,” explains McConnell spokesman Michael Brumas.“Our office forwarded the constituent’s question to the Defense Department.”

But perhaps simply following the link to the uniformed version of The Onion would have sufficed to clear up any confusion.

We should ask mexico for a list of their drug smugglers or a list or their people smugglers or a list of their illegal pharmaceutical manufactures or a list of their gun owners. They should give mexico a fake list with 30 times the actual gun owners to scare them.

and to continue with the right wing 'who needs a real source' joke....

"Friends Of Hamas" And Why The GOP Can't Win The Internet

Fox Business host Lou Dobbs, National Review columnist Andrew McCarthy, and AM talker Hugh Hewitt all hyped Breitbart's conspiratorial narrative about Hagel's nefarious connections with Friends of Hamas.

Slight problem. Last week, Slate's David Weigel detailed how Friends of Hamas doesn't actually exist. And as New York Daily News reporter Dan Friedman explained, he unwittingly started the Friends of Hamas rumor when he posed the Hagel question to a GOP aide in the form of "an obvious joke." According to Friedman, he asked about both Friends of Hamas and the "Junior League of Hezbollah," and thought that the "names were so over-the-top, so linked to terrorism in the Middle East, that it was clear I was talking hypothetically and hyperbolically."

The GOP aide then apparently shared the Friends of Hamas inquiry with other partisans and it found its way to Breitbart, which published it in the form of "news" under Shapiro's byline.

Tellingly, the fact that the scary sounding group doesn't exist didn't stop a right-wing site from pushing the tall tale; a tale that quickly ricocheted across the conservative media landscape and was touted as a Deeply Troubling Development.
