Daily Kos Week in Review: Sail Away

Daily Kos is, of course, a lefty blog, but often "anti-righty" would be a more accurate term. This past week, Kossacks fell over themselves to allege that conservatives are insane, moronic bigots who ought to relocate to the Horn of Africa.   

As usual, each headline is preceded by the blogger's name or pseudonym.

plf515: The GOP is too disgusting to survive

...Is this the best [Republicans] can do [in terms of presidential candidates]?

Yes it is...

The reason this is the best they can do is because this is who they are.

Neocons, lunatics, theocrats and pseudo-libertarians.

The Republican party doesn't deserve to just lose in 2012. They deserve to be destroyed. This should be the last generation in which such a party is viable.

MinistryOfTruth: Republicans, grouchy since the '60s 

...Republicans simply are NOT INTERESTED in doing anything, they'd rather demonize people...Hell, when we took down Gaddafi they tried to give France the credit instead of Obama. France. Republicans decided that they hated France less than the black guy. I would consider that an improvement if this was 1912.

Is it 1980 that the GOP wants to take us back to or 1912? Or 1812?...

...The GOP has been miserable ever since women burned their bras and Martin Luther King Jr marched in the streets...

tjwalker: The right longs for a racist smackdown of Obama

...[W]hat do conservatives really want? They want a debate between Obama and Gingrich. And in that debate, they want Gingrich to turn to Obama and sneer “Please get your skinny black ass back on a boat and go back to Kenya where you belong. And don’t even think of stepping back into the White House again unless you are willing to swap your grass skirt for a butler’s uniform so you can fetch me my tea!”

This is what conservatives mean when they say Gingrich can “beat” Obama in a debate...

Troubadour: Conservatives are stupid and pitiful...

I don't much talk to conservatives anymore. There are legitimate arguments for staying in touch with people who are morally and intellectually stunted just as a reality check on the general state of society, but for me it comes down to a choice between personal growth or basically being a pro bono babysitter / amateur psychiatrist for wingnuts...

Hunter: ...and should move to a far-off land

...I'm just tired of [conservatives] and wish they would go away, or secede, or whatever it is they need to do to separate themselves from the rest of modern society and live out their lily-white no-immigrant no-Muslims no-athiests no-gay-people no-liberals no-moderates no-funny-dressers Talibanesque fantasies about how a country should be run (tip: land in Somalia is very, very cheap these days)...
