In which the President of the United States kerboots the raving meatstick Right right in the yam sacks.
It was a terrific civics lesson.
And I predict it will also not make the slightest dent in the carapace of pure, adamantine vicious dumbass that protects Conservatives from reality. However many, reasonable arguments you make, it won't matter. However many historical comparisons you make -- however many different ways you find to say, "You wouldn't stand for this if a Democrat did it to you" -- it won't matter.
To these profoundly failed men of the Right, drunk on the last dregs of the "Better Dead than Red!" popskull of their youth, the mere existence of Barack Obama is an existential threat to the republic so immediate and dire there is no method of bringing him down too Pyrrhic to use.
This is the vanguard of the Holy Wingnut Army sailing right past their fail-safe points and on to their targets, refusing to listen to anyone sane because listening to sane people is what they have been specifically ordered not to do! (could not find the best clip, so you'll have to settle for second best):
This is the Brain Caste of the Holy Wingnut Army telling their orc horde that final victory over the hated Liberal/Gay/Brown/Feminazi Axis of Socialism is within their reach, but only if they go all-in and strike the enemy with everything in their arsenal Right!Now!
This is the Little Red State Fundy monster the Right spent a generation and billions of dollars creating --
-- doing exactly what that monster was programmed to do.
Nor will the President's calm, measured remarks budge a single member of the Both Sides Chorus so much as an inch.
Because as long as there remains a buck to be turned preaching the gospel of False Equivalence, the high priests of the faith will continue to stick to their scripts and collect their blood money.
