This Is Your Brain On Fox, Part The Infinity

This is what happens to your brain after either watching too much Faux "news" or listening to way too many hours of right wing hate talk radio.

If anyone is ever wondering just how restless the natives are out there and to what extent the right has managed to get the masses whipped up, whether it be from watching Faux "news," or listening to right-wing hate talk radio, look no further than the audience at C-SPAN's morning call-in show, Washington Journal.

I don't know what the average age of their audience is, but I'm guessing it makes Bill O'Reilly's audience look young after listening to enough of them over the years.

This is what happens to your brain after too large of a dose of right-wing media. Here's what a caller from New York who identified himself as a member of the "tea party" told host Greta Wodele Brawner.

Boehner is a liberal. Cantor is a liberal. We have two principle parties and the leadership of both parties are liberals. That's why this country is in such a mess. Because liberals destroy everything that they touch.

Well, in 2010, didn't they promise to defund Obamacare? Have they done that? No. Of course not. If we had true conservative leadership in the House, they would defund Obamacare, the Department of Education, the Department of Energy, the EPA. Have they done any of that?

No, because they are liberals.

The "tea party leaning" Republican (otherwise known as a Republican) from Texas who came in behind him agreed completely with what he said about party leadership and proceeded to fearmonger over all of the immigrants who are "taking over" their state and they're "being forced to educate them" and how horrible it is that her daughter works in a school in Houston where most of the kids are Hispanic.

Can you help us out?
