The Lightbulb Guy might want to get an encyclopedia of logical fallacies out and look up <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/False_equivalence">false equivalence</a>. First, I don't remember Democrats refusing vote on George W. Bush's choices to head federal agencies, just because they didn't like the agencies. Second, whatever you think about Democratic filibusters, they've generally represented <a href="http://www.slate.com/articles/news_and_politics/politics/2010/02/let_the_majority_rule.html">the majority view.</a> Third, any third grader could look at a chart of cloture votes <a href="http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/the-fix/wp/2013/07/11/the-democratic-case-for-changing-the-filibuster-rules-in-1-chart/">and see the difference. </a>
Just as they <a href="http://crooksandliars.com/blue-texan/stupid-right-wing-tweets-todd-starnes-0">flew into a rage</a> over the President's anodyne remarks about the Zimmerman trial, wingnuts are now having a Two Minutes of Hate over what the Attorney General said.
What is Fox News host and <a href="https://twitter.com/toddstarnes">Twitter troll</a> Todd Starnes talking about? After the George Zimmerman verdict was announced, President Obama released this statement:
It's getting harder and harder to distinguish the <em>National Review</em> from World Nut Daily these days. Just look at this feverish mess from John Fund about the George Zimmerman trial.
Remember when Rand Paul told Rachel Maddow he'd vote against the Civil Rights Act? Maybe there was more to it than just being <a href="http://freebeacon.com/rebel-yell/">a committed ideologue.
Remember when taking vacations helped our leaders make <a href="http://usatoday30.usatoday.com/news/nation/2005-08-23-bush-idaho_x.htm?csp=34">better decisions?</a>
According to the National Review's Jim Geraghty, being criticized by the French is something to be deeply ashamed of.
Most Americans aren't public figures who are reviled by the majority of their fellow citizens and their local government. Even fewer of us face daily assassination threats. Fewer still see their homes firebombed. And fewer still face all of these threats and receive no protection from the police.
To justify their opposition to affirmative action, equal pay, and gutting the Voting Rights Act, right-wingers insist that bigotry and prejudice are no longer problems in this country.

Saw this at our friends at Raw Story, and this part <a href="http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2013/06/26/gohmert-same-sex-marriage-ruling-could-be-the-end-of-a-great-civilization/">made me chuckle.</a>
Yep, it's the <a href="http://crooksandliars.com/blue-texan/stupid-right-wing-tweets-erick-ericks-5">stupidest wingnut on the planet</a> is back again today, this time referring to the majority of his fellow citizens as a "cult of death."
Yeah, and Jesus would be crying considering all those critical things he had to say about gays in the New Testament.

Failed Vice Presidential candidate Paul Ryan, who believes that the problem with America is that there are too many "<a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/10/05/paul-ryan-60-percent-of-a_n_1943073.html">takers</a>" slacking off in "<a href="http://firedoglake.com/2011/01/28/ayn-rand-fanboy-paul-ryan-used-social-security-hammock-to-put-himself-through-college/">hammocks</a>," went on MSNBC Monday morning with a simple message to America's poor: I care.
Fox News propagandist Sean Hannity sat down with Playboy, and though I'm not going to attempt to correct every one of his lies, it's worth spotlighting just how much wrongness he can cram into a single interview.
