We all know wingnuts are neither creative (which is why their numerous attempts at doing humor fail) nor all that intelligent -- that is, their intelligence is limited to parroting "gotcha!" lines meant to prove liberals are hypocrites, and not actual learning.

So there's nothing surprising about watching Valley girl Michelle "Twitchy Nutjobs Love Me" Fields from PJTV (the old Pajamas Media) confront Bobby Kennedy Jr. at the People's Climate March on Sunday.

Wingnut "journalists" are really not interested in having a conversation, which is why they never learn anything. (Geeze, even the polar opposites on "Wife Swap" learn something when exposed to other viewpoints.) And this interview isn't anything like journalism, even if that's what she's allegedly paid to do. (I think the technical term is "fuckwittery.") It's more of a comedy bit.

But she doesn't need actual talent, just prominent breasts and long, silky hair. She's a proud right-wing media parrot, an honors graduate of the James O'Keefe Online School of Journalism. (One who got fired from the Daily Caller, apparently for appearing on Fox News so many times, she didn't do any actual work.)

(Hey, Michelle, love the old "do you have an iPhone?" line of attack. It's so fresh!)

Wingnuts insist on trying to make individuals take responsibility for systemic problems, and when their targets point that out, the parroted response is, "So you're a hypocrite."

Fields (and the women like her) are really political porn actresses. A repetition of the same trigger phrases over and over, until their fans reach climax. "You're so big and smart! Liberals are such hypocrites! Don't tread on me! You're the real Freedom Fighters, not these elites! Oh! Oh! Ohhhhhhhhh....."

I have more respect for real sex workers, though. They know what line of work they're in, they don't pretend to be anything but.

But for people like Michelle Fields to admit their role as well-paid political fluffers would undercut those Galtian wet dreams of the fans, and we can't have that, now, can we?

Can you help us out?
