Luckily the right wing lunatics were all over the recent spicy brown mustard controversy. I feel so much safer knowing that the President's choice of a dijon mustard on his burger isn't going to escape unnoticed by the rapidly-irrelevant right...
But this may be taking their paranoid schizophrenia to new heights. We know have elected Republican officials suggesting that the President of the United States is... well, read it for yourself:
Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Chairman Chris Van Hollen is spanking his GOP counterpart for suggesting that President Barack Obama is intentionally scuttling the economy as part of a "divide and conquer" strategy.
National Republican Congressional Committee Chairman Pete Sessions told The New York Times on Monday that he thought the administration intended to "diminish employment and diminish stock prices" and "to inflict damage and hardship on the free enterprise system, if not to kill it."
Thus guys sounds like the wacko nutjobs that spill over into our comment threads - but no - this nutcake is an elected representative from Dallas, Texas.
Oh, maybe that explains it. Didn't President Bush move to Dallas? Didn't the Texas governor hint that the state was considering seceding from the union? These clowns clearly don't want to be a part of America anymore.
Van Hollen responded in a statement: "The latest remarks by NRCC Chairman Pete Sessions have no place in our current economic debate and reflect a party more preoccupied with offering bizarre conspiracy theories than offering credible solutions to get our economy back on track. Families coping with the loss of a job, their home or their health care need solutions from Washington, not more of the same broken politics embodied by Chairman Sessions and the Republican leadership in the House and talk show host Rush Limbaugh."
Lunatics... they've been reduced to babbling lunatics...
