|Tip/Wag - Cynthia Davis & Fox News|
Folks, competition for this week’s entries into Teh Crazy was fierce. There were all the usual suspects. Early in the week, Rush Limpbot had the early advantage. Here’s just a sampling of his wares:
On 6/29, he claimed that the 5-4 decision by the Supreme Court in the Ricci Case was actually 9-0, and that they had found that Sonia Sotomayer was a racist.
On 6/30, commenting on the fallout from the Mark Sanford affair, he offered this stunning insight into the female psyche:
Do you realize how the liberal women are going to eat this up? The liberal infobabes, oh, they’re swooning, folks. I will guarantee you they are having to excuse themselves and run to the bathroom here to control themselves….liberal women who are already in heat reporting this.
On July 1, he characterized the Democrats’ plans for health care as “gang rape.”
On the same day, he offered that President Obama is leading the Dems “into doing everything he could to ensure the defeat of the U.S. military.”
Speaking of Mark Sanford, the poor guy just couldn’t keep digging, giving a melodramatic interview to the AP in which he revealed that he had “crossed lines” with women other than his Argentine mistress. Here’s a little unsolicited advice, Mark. Since you had earlier stated that you were trying to fall back in love with your wife for the good of your family, ix-nay on the oul-say, ate-mate talk, okay? I know that many South Carolinians are praying for you, like the minister shown in the clip below who is hoping that you “go into a more silent mode.” Or as Jon Stewart helpfully translated: please, just STFU.

Glenn Beck didn’t disappoint, seeming to agree with his guest, former CIA analyst Michael Scheuer that “The only chance we have as a country right now is” for bin Laden to “detonate a major weapon” in U.S.”
Then there was of course the Sarah Palin resignation meltdown speech. No shortage of coverage there.
But I put my personal favorite at the top of the page. It features a newcomer to teh crazy scene, Rethuglican representative Cynthia Davis from Missouri who presented the case for why the government should let children go hungry.
There’s more fireworks, fer sure, but I’m off to celebrate the real thing.
Happy Independence Day.
