Civility Be Damned!

David “I Was the Smarter Brother, and Look Where It Got Me” Limbaugh has a new Town Hall column out today: Don’t Go Wobbly; Follow Sarah.”  In it, he applauds Sarah Palin for fighting dirty, and urges other Republicans to do more of the same, basically to pay back liberals for criticizing Bush and Cheney.
But while cheering for Sarah’s slimy “Omana palls around with terrorists” attacks, the lesser Limbaugh seems to go even lower.  Note the following passages regarding Obama’s dealings with 60′s Weatherman/current college professor William Ayers (emphasis added).
Democrats are crying foul because she’s confronting Barack Obama for his worrisome attitudes about America and hisway-more-than-casual association with unrepentant domestic terrorist William Ayers. Some squeamish conservatives are counseling that we ignore this issue either because it is unpleasant and unfair or that it’s a distraction from the “substantive” issues.
Nonsense. This issue is neither unfair nor a diversion. It is imperative that we learn the extent of Obama’s intimacywith this man. [...]
Indeed, we must applaud Sarah Palin for standing up to her opponents and returning hostile fire. 
We’re ready for her to lead the charge, not only on Obama’ssordid relationships but also in articulating the monumental differences between the liberal and conservative approaches to governance.
Doesn’t it sound like Davey is suggesting that Obama not only attended a few board meetings that Ayers was also present for, but had an affair with him?  Is that how David is suggesting that conservatives “fight back” against Democrats: by starting the rumor that Obama had a interracial homosexual affair with a domestic terrorist?  Wow, get Pastor Swank on this one STAT!
Anyway, Davey then goes on to state that the Democratic candidates don’t deserve any civility from the McCain/Palin campaign because liberals were mean to Bush.  He then goes so far as to criticize McCain for exhibiting “collegiality” and for believing in global warming. Or does he go a little further there too???
I don’t know about you, but I’m not particularly interested in some bipartisan love fest in which Joe Biden tells us he loves John McCain or John McCain lavishes high praise on global warming fearmonger Al Gore.
So there you have it: John McCain has participated in a gay threesome with Biden and Gore.  I guess that means that Sarah Palin is the only candidate fit to be President.
So keep it up, Sarah, and maybe others will follow your courageous example.
You know, I bet the National Enquirer will, even if nobody else has the courage.

Anway, it’s nice for the wingnuts that they have found a candidate who resonates with them.  The rest of America should really think about whether they want someone with those kind of credentials a heartbeat away from the presidency.
