Wingnuts and Moonbats

Upon stumbling into my hotel room each evening, I always turn the television on. If nothing interesting is on and CNN is boring, I will flip back and forth between MSNBC (Olberman, Maddow) and Fox News (O'Reilly, H&C) purely for entertainment purposes. These talking heads are crack for their 100% partisan audiences. I don't trust anything they say, but they can sometimes get a chuckle or two out of me and that can be worth it in and of itself (particularly when Colmes looks like he is about to implode - a nightly event).

Last night was such a night. MSNBC, commercial break, Fox News, commercial break, back and forth. But, last night topped all previous nights in ridiculousness. Hannity called our current recession "The Obama Recession". He fumbled around trying to explain how the market is reacting to things that Obama might do, yada yada, but still. Really?

The sad thing is that somewhere out there, there are a lot of people who believe him.
