It's really not grey at all.

The religious right is fascist threat to the United States, democracy, liberty and justice.

They are clearly delusional, unaffected by fact or reason and willing to put our entire country at great risk in a terroristic attempt to impose their religious insanity upon the free world by demanding a theocratic dictatorship as ransom for not destroying our economy and global reputation.

Jon Stewart Calls Out Republicans For Not Owning The Shutdown:'Don't Fart And Point At The Dog'

"In this short clip from the opening of Tuesday's "Daily Show," Jon Stewart vows to not talk about the shutdown... except for that one little bit about the Republicans saying they aren't responsible for it.

In a cathartic moment that most of us can appreciate, Stewart calls bullsh*t after rolling a clip of Speaker John Boehner admitting that he had made a deal with Harry Reid that he then broke:

"Look, you think Obamacare's a big enough threat to this country that you need to shut down the government over it, fine. Own it. Don't fart and point at the dog.""...

Rep. Michele Bachmann declares that we are in the End Times:'His day is at hand.'

"There is a new conspiracy theory circulating among the far-right proclaiming that the president of the United States is secretly arming al-Qaeda-linked terrorists in Syria. The precise reasoning by this theory is, as usual, a bit vague, but seems to have something to do with the presumption of all far-right conservatives that all brown people everywhere are secret members of al Qaeda, and that Barack Obama is secretly a Muslim and therefore secretly a member of al Qaeda, and all those drones killing people across the world for so much as drawing "I heart al Qaeda" on napkin is a false flag to distract us all from how the president of the United States secretly wants the terrorists to win. It may also be a delayed reaction to John McCain going to Syria and demanding in very stern tones that we give people he barely knew those very weapons, or a general confusion as to which of the 20 or so existing far-right gun conspiracy theories ought to be linked to brown people at any given time, or—you know what, parsing this out is impossible. Suffice it to say that they now believe Barack Obama is funneling arms to al Qaeda because of fucking course they do.

Leave it to Michele Bachmann, who I will remind all of America is still an actual member of Congress and not a crazy person with 20 cats who calls C-SPAN every evening to inform the hosts as to what legislative ideas her cats have given her today, to take this new theory to its only logical conclusion: the End Times are upon us. http://videocafe.crooksandliars.com/david/bac...

""This happened and as of today the United States is willingly, knowingly, intentionally sending arms to terrorists," she said. "Now what this says to me, I’m a believer in Jesus Christ, as I look at the End Times scripture, this says to me that the leaf is on the fig tree and we are to understand the signs of the times, which is your ministry, we are to understand where we are in God’s End Times history.”

"Rather than seeing this as a negative, we need to rejoice, Maranatha Come Lord Jesus, His day is at hand," Bachmann added.“When we see up is down and right is called wrong, when this is happening, we were told this; these days would be as the days of Noah.”

So it's the best of all possible news, America: it's the apocalypse! Praise the secret Muslim Barack Obama for unleashing it!

Again, Rep. Michele Bachmann is a member of Congress. She's one of the people currently celebrating the shutdown of the American government as being a fine thing. She is on—and I am not making this up—the House Intelligence Committee. She, along with Rep. Biff and the various Texas gas leak victims that state has elevated into positions of national responsibility, decides the mundanities of whether we need to bother with government at all or need to abandon it all and dedicate ourselves instead to writing WELCOME BACK JESUS in gigantic, burning oil-fueled letters written across the middle of the North American continent.

What's shutting down the national government or defaulting on the national debt when Jesus himself is on His way down to officially give your ideological enemies the final what-for? I'm beginning to suspect the only reason Michele Bachmann was so keen on becoming president was that she wanted to give the ol' nuclear football a nice, hard kick."

It isn't about less government it is just that more government costs too much. And liberals can always think up something else they want to control. If you gave them everything they wanted today they would have a new list tomorrow.
