Mark Sumner at the Daily Kos demands that reporters point out that supply-side economics is a complete fantasy. "Any politician who promises to right the economy through cutting taxes on the wealthy might as well invoke the Easter Bunny, and any reporter who fails to point this out is failing the public."

Conservatives believe in a supply-side Sasquatch? "There is a difference between believing in the existence of Bigfoot and counting on reducing taxes on the rich as a way to boost the economy. Bigfoot is simply very, very unlikely. Conservative economics are a myth." The Reagan Recovery is a myth?

Kossacks notice things the rest of us don't, or maybe they just imagine things that aren't there. This past week, one picked up on the supposedly racist subtext of Mitt Romney's 47-percent comments, while another smelled a "fetid odor of fascism coming from Lord Romney's castle" (and also announced that he's "ready to compare Romney to Hitler").

This past week, Kossacks weighed in on the GOP presidential nominee's Libya/Egypt comments, reflected on the madness and/or fanatical religiosity of conservatives, and lauded a currently showless lefty cable-TV host.

Several Kossacks spent part of their Labor Day weekend or the week of the Democratic convention pondering the allegedly poor mental health of Republicans. One dared to assert that a specific event -- Bill Clinton's 1992 defeat of George H. W. Bush -- made GOPers lose their minds.

The left-wing hysteria over how well the Democratic Convention is going has completely overtaken the senses of bloggers scribbling at the Daily Kos. In his regular “Cheers and Jeers” blog, the gay activist and “booger of change” known as Bill in Portland, Maine can already see a massive polling bounce approaching:

CHEERS to Night 3 This is it, kids," he wrote. "The final night before Gallup announces the 20-point Democratic bounce.  First, from the Scranton suburb of Delaware...weighing in at give-or-take 180 pounds: Joe ‘Scrappy Pappy Mad Dog Ham Bone Unleash Him and Turn Him Loose’ Biden! "

The week of the Republican convention found Kossacks reflecting on what they already believed about the party: that its members are plutocratic racists and its vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan is a lying sociopath.

Todd Akin may not know much about biology, but this week one Kossack sounded awfully uninformed herself on abortion and related issues. Another claimed that one of the major parties (hint: not the Democrats) is, in effect, pro-rape.

An e-mail from Daily Kos Campaign Manager, Chris Bowers announces 'big news' regarding voter ID laws in Pennsylvania.  Bowers explains:

A huge coalition of 100+ labor and civil rights groups has come together to do the door knocking, phone banking and voter education necessary to make sure everyone in this must-win swing state can still cast a ballot.

At Daily Kos, we're helping out by running online ads in Pennsylvania to sign up more than 1,000 volunteers so that this coalition has the people power it needs. Please, click here to contribute $3 to Daily Kos so that we can sign up the thousands of volunteers needed to overcome Pennsylvania's voter ID law.

Some on the left have questioned the Catholic credentials of Republican VP-nominee-in-waiting Paul Ryan. Count on Kossacks, however, to allege that Ryan, and conservatives as a group, not only aren't Christians but are followers of Satan himself.

Plenty of Kossacks blamed the right for creating the atmosphere that brought about last weekend's Sikh temple mass murder in Wisconsin. Moreover, one argued that the killings dovetailed with conservatives' belief that life itself is the enemy, and that their dream is for "Earth to be as sterile and silent as the Moon."

This past week, one Kossack contended that the Republican party is dead, and that conservatives -- specifically, a Sarah Palin-led mob -- killed it. Of course, killing's to be expected from right-wingers, who according to another Kossack are characterized by "nihilism, hatred, and murder-suicidal compulsiveness."

Jonah Goldberg has written a column advocating a swift execution for Aurora theatre killer James Holmes, which outraged “Tytalus” at the Daily Kos. His article is titled “Doughy Pantload vents his violent impulses.”

In classic Kosmonaut fashion, the advocacy of killing the mass murderer somehow morally merges Holmes and Goldberg into identical warts on society’s gluteus maximus:
