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:

If Daily Kos were an online university, and you were taking a course called Fundamentals of the Republican Party, you would have learned this week that while bedrock GOP beliefs are incompatible with Christ's teachings, they're quite similar to Hitlerian ideology.

Contaminated water, health problems, and now … earthquakes? Fracking, a way to get natural gas out of layers deep within the earth, has been blamed for it all and the liberal news media have been consistently against the method, rarely showing supporters or mentioning any upside of the process.

Hydraulic fracturing, more commonly known as fracking, is a technique used to get natural gas out of the ground. It’s not new technology — the first use of hydraulic fracturing was actually in 1947 (according to a textbook on Rock Mechanics), but this process has come under fire from the left and the media in the past two years especially.

While the Daily Kos first reacted with horror like everyone else to the Aurora shooting, it didn’t take too long for the America-bashing to begin. The blogger known as “Killer of Sacred Cows” grew angry that Rep. Louie Gohmert would suggest the madness could have been stopped sooner if someone else in the theater was packing heat. That apparently put him in “Idiotsville.”

But KoSC really wanted to blame the American Culture of Violence for the shooting, that our screwed-up social system doesn’t tolerate diminished mental capacity, it creates it:
