Twenty Bucks, Same as in Town: CPAC/Teabagging Edition

Well, it's that time year again for the Monster Mash, aka the CPAC conference. MSNBC's Rachel Maddow and The Nation's Max Blumenthal had better be careful while they're perambulating through the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel. "Liberal talking head" Ms. Maddow was already accosted by "one guy who was really, like, hostile and got up in my face and screamed that he was a normal person. That was really weird. I think he was just a creepy guy..."

CPAC 2010 gets off to a roaring start as Newt Gingrich explains his new Contract With America.

The thought of Rachel Maddow picking her way through the CPAC conference, which Oliver Willis reminded us last year is co-sponsored by the John Birch Society, sounds about as promising as a drunk, nubile skinny dipper stumbling around Camp Crystal Lake.

Teabaggers like to look at themselves like this...

...even though to the rest of us they just come off looking like this.

Case in point: The Washington Examiner informs us that
Party planners are busily working to create a Nancy Pelosi pinata and Harry Reid punching bag for the girls and guys, respectively, to bat and punch... "I think that if you take it as humorous and you don't think of it as all too serious, it's funny, and it is what it is," (Katherine) Kennedy told Yeas & Nays.

Oh, sure. As long as it's all in the name of satire and humor, like, say, Rush using the word "retard" 40 times in a single broadcast, then what's to worry about teabaggers and conservative Patriots beating effigies of our party's Congressional leaders? While they're at it, why don't they just hang a real burro? They can call it "Pin the Blame on the Donkey."

Meanwhile, courtesy of Joe. My. God., here's the live stream of the CPAC conference if you feel like ODing on crazy hate.

Last Sunday Dick Cheney offers an insouciant public confession that he abetted torture while infesting the office of Vice President. That's a felony, of course -- potentially a capital crime (I acknowledge that fact while stipulating that I oppose the death penalty).

Yesterday this blood-drenched fascist tool oozes onto the stage at CPAC to nearly orgasmic applause from the Republican throng, for whom torture is the highest and holiest public calling.

Observing the behavior of either branch of the Establishment Party is enough to make my gorge rebel, but there's just no escaping the fact that, if the word retains any meaning today, the GOP can only be described as "fascist."
