    were completely lathered up about the IRS thing last week.  On of them started it off by quoting a Drudge headline when this "scandal" first came up.  He actually admitted he only read the headline and didn't follow the link to read the story.  He just read the skewed Drudge headline.  Without any knowledge of this issue other than a Drudge headline, they were off to the races and already knew what had happened.  One immediately went off comparing it to Nixon.  Of course they then justified the whole Nixon thing, claiming it was all a liberal conspiracy and Nixon didn't really do anything that he should have gotten in trouble for - but they all knew Obama was behind this latest IRS screw up because Drudge!

    They were talking 100mph.  I haven't seen them so excited about anything since the first Obama/Romney debate.  There was spit flying.

    They then said Obama is so smart, so conniving, that he probably made sure there would be no paper trail and nothing to tie him to this. They spoke with absolute certainly that Obama was behind this up to his eyeballs.  Of course after stating how smart Obama was about this, they then had to throw in the next bullshit RW meme that Obama thinks he is the messiah.  Therefore, he must have just openly ordered all the low level IRS employees to perform his political dirty work, without second thought, because he thinks of himself above law.  He would get caught for sure because he is so stupid.

    These are people that, when it comes to our job, which requires a good deal of analytical ability and sound judgement, I have a great deal of respect for.  I regularly seek out their opinions and, generally, they provide very logical, well thought out insight.  However, when it involves anything that can possibly be tied to Obama, like Noonan, they are absolutely out of their minds.  They turn stupid at the flick of a switch.

    •  I work with a bevy of RWNJ's... (0+ / 0-)

      But you're a much nicer person than I am. I don't trust the work of someone who spouts stupid ass shit w/o at least reading the dang story.

      Click the effing link and at least read the story that has you all a twitter. (no pun intended).

      I'm sick of my RWNJ coworkers, sick of what passes for the media and sick of politics in general.
