I have this bad habit of watching Book Notes on C-SPAN 2 every weekend, but I usually ignore the recorded antics of the 535 paid monkeys who supposedly represent us. But some wierd sense told me to check C-SPAN today, and I came across this gem with a guy named Cliff Kincaid, proudly bragging about what a hero G. Gordon Liddy is. That should have been my first sign of nausea yet to come.
Listening to him, I found out that Barack Obama is a Communist, John McCain is almost the Antichrist because he is against torture, and a long list of other things that must make the Red Scare crowd of the last sixty years just thrilled that fear of Communism can still get you some TV coverage.
Nothing below the fold, just check out this website. I couldn't wait for the next open thread.
Speaking of which - why don't we have a tiny little icon up in the corner of DailyKos so that we can read/post to an Open Thread at any time without having to scroll down and find one? Would that help cut down on short and meatless diaries?
