Newt Gingrich v. Fox News! Allen West v. The Red Menace in Congress

Seeing Red

Republicans are a combative lot, always looking to gin up a good conflict – usually for the sake of self-aggrandizement, free press, or the titillation of their cranky, perpetually aggrieved base. But regardless of motive, it’s a naff bit of fun to watch. Especially now that the hulking ocean liner that is the GOP nominating process has wrecked upon the monolithic dullness that is Mitt Romney. (Our nod to the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic.) (And congratulations to Mr. Romney for icing the nomination.) (GOP staff and crew, you may release the lifeboats.)

Take Newt Gingrich. Moon Pie is on the offensive, blasting the diddly-dang biased media again – but this time he’s blasting...FOX NEWS!!! Has the universe turned widdershins? Are we in bizarro world? No, it’s true – after verbally spanking the liberal media like a dominating daddy for the past couple months – since his monumental loss in Florida, actually – and seeing the amount of coverage he gets from aforesaid media plummet like a stone falling out of orbit toward the gravity well of a heavenly body, Mr. Gingrich is doubling down on the few media outlets that remain accessible to him. He’s attacking Fox News for sinking his campaign, saying that Darth Murdoch and the Empire want Mitt Romney in the White House and “...there’s no question Fox had a lot to do with stopping my campaign because such a high percentage of our base watches Fox.” Use the farce, Newt.

In even more absurd GOP shenanigans, Rep. Allen West of Florida is alleging that Congress is permeated with members fo the Communist Party. He’s heard tell that there’s around 80 of them or so, and...and....

...I’m finding myself a bit unnerved by this story – how did he find out?!? – even to the point of dropping the annoying “royal we” pronoun we’ve been using for a couple months. (Thought it was cute, at first. Now I’m not so sure what we think about it.) It’s so unnerving because, well... my secret Soviet overlords are telling me to belittle Rep. West for his accusation, to keep the American people in the dark about our Secret Soviet Plans to take over the United States and force all freedom-loving Christians to worship secular liberal condoms, or whatever nefarious plans are being kicked around this week back in Leningrad...goodness – How did he find out?!?

That Rep. West. He’s sure a dildo. Communists? Ha. It is to laugh.

Comrade Z-19, reporting out.

Loved this article. I must state that Rep Allen West is attempting to restart the cold war for the republican party. Still I am from the old school that believes everyone in America has a right to face their accuser and see the evidence against them. Since he provided no evidence, gave up no names there is no way in which to supply contradictory facts to his statement. To me if you can not give the facts you need to stay quite. The reason he did not supply any names or facts is he did not want to be sued in a legal court of law for slander. He must really think the American citizen is a dummy. I can not believe what I can not investigate on my own. Therefore I rank his comment where it belongs republican propaganda attempting to inflame the people and have them addressing what is a non issue so they can steal another election. Hopefully that will not happen cause Romney's budget plan is worse than GWB's was, it is like putting George Bush's plan on steriods. God forbid. Besides he hates women and I just don't see how he can say anything to the contrary when his voting record speaks volumes about how he feels about women. Newt Gingrich has done himself in, he lacks the ethics to ever be considered for president, his history is as bad if not worst than Romney's. As usual we in America lack anyone which will represent the citizens. Until we address the lobbyist that shape our politic's with their illegal contributions we will continue with corporations controlling who is elected for what office. It is a sad state of affairs our nation faces. The American public truly needs to wake up and soon.
