Recent activities on the far right (via ThinkProgress):
- Anti-tax guru Grover Norquist claims that the current economic problems–50% drop in the Dow and worldwide recession– were caused by the Democratic takeover of Congress in 2006. Although no tax rates have changed since then, Markets are apparently so sensitive to tax rates that even the faintest hint of increased taxes can be cataclysmic for the economy. “People knew those old tax rates were coming back”, he said
- Glenn Beck is outraged that we are losing our freedom under the coming Democratic junta, and wondering what to do. “Do states”, he asked, “have the right to secede from the union anymore?” Unbelievable. President Lincoln, have you heard about this?
- In other news, Ann Coulter apparently broke her jaw and now has her mouth wired shut. C’mon, this has to be a hoax. There is no material known to man that could keep that mouth shut!
