Tin Foil Hat Time

The Republicans have become so irrelevant that they are now just fabricating to keep their party in the spotlight.

Arianna Huffington discusses the many Republican charades with Keith Olbermann. In his "Bushed" segment Olbermann then pleads for the Republicans to stop lying about taxes and the tax burden.

Ed Schultz delves into the Teabag theatrics beautifully in this piece (starts around 0:58). The second part of Ed's show - especially the "Psycho Talk" segment at 5:40 - on the same issue is also worth watching. [Another segment, in the second part, on the profits of the Hospital Corporation of America at 12:30 should also be viewed.] Jon Stewart parodies the Teabag debacle. Karl Frisch also weighs in on this topic. Art Levine has more on this faux grass roots Teabag fiasco and the absence of any mention of CEO pay and corporate tax avoidance within this 'we're mad as hell and we're not going to take it anymore' false consciousness.

Media Matters corrects the falsity of claims the Department of Homeland Security is targeting right-wingers. Olbermann also comments on this.

Eric Boehlert opines on the general paranoia of the right-wing.

Robert Parry writes about the right-wing and the media drive to destroy Obama.
