Crazy Voices Are Still Heard in the Land

One might have thought that after the election things would begin to settle down and something resembling calm would emerge, that the more radical elements in the political spectrum would back off and maybe even disappear. But that hasn't happened.

The crazy ones seem to get the most attention while the smarter politicians screw people from behind the curtains

Palinsane is still around and continues to have her supporters.

Her popularity has gone down over the years and continues to slide down however slowly.

Palinsane is definitely on the way out and maybe she will eventually disappear...
Wouldn't that be wonderful!

"Palin remains the master of the empty gesture and phony bluster"
"People like Palin donít care what words actually mean. Theyíre fungible arenít they?"

By the way, is Palinsane still on faux noise...?

Ty, Carrie.

Thanks Carrie for the link to the article by Ann Davidow. Palin is at the top of that list but there are many more just right behind her and they all seem to on the conservative (read wing nut) side of the national dialog. Read and noted.

Sarah Palin and Anne Coulter have no interest in telling the truth, the truth doesn't sell but if you can say anything without suffering any consequences, well then hells bells what difference does it make if it's the truth. As far as Joe Scarborough who acts like some sort of moral authority on every subject, don't people ever wonder why he resigned from congress so abruptly? I'll keep this short but if you're interested try googling the name Lori Klausutis

It is a curious phenomenon. I must mean that a large percentage of the population are silly enough to be duped.

Whom do you suppose seduced the Tea Party away from its drive for fiscal and political change and back into the fold of the Republican Party? Why it was Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck.

They never shut up. They have an endless supply of money. The stuff that was our economy.

I hope that some day, people that watch and believe fox, will realize they are in an alter, false reality bubble, running endlessly on a hamster wheel. Then we can heal.

"The crazy ones seem to get the most attention while the smarter politicians screw people from behind the curtains "

That's how the con works. Foster the hate. We know that they are all the bad guys.

@pirjo sundqvist...

We had a coup in our country in 2000, by the fascist, nazi 4th reich, Karl Rove and the 3rd anti christ, gwbusH.

We have to be vigilant. We are under assault by their followers. If we ignore them, like we have in the beginning, they grow. They are too close to absolute power.

Wish I was there. :)

Thom Hartmann? A man with impeccable integrity, Deborah?

Have you noticed that one side can prove the liars and the other side can't? Did you know that, statistically, fox viewers are the most misinformed (lied to) people in this country? Why do you think this is true/proven?

Ed Schultz? Kieth Oberman? Rachel Madow? No one is calling them, while PROVING them to be liars.

When my Congresswoman, Giffords, was shot, I read an article soonafter that told readers to stop reading all articles regarding Palin for the month of Feb. We were just going to ignore her. So, I did. I've never gone back; and I think many, many others did the same. I also do the same for Coulter. It was "funny" that I didn't notice Palin for many, many months in the media. (She might've been on FuxNoise, but I wouldn't know).
I read this article because Palin wasn't in the title, and the article simply referenced her and others. But, wherever her name appears in the media---stating some comment she made, thing she did, or just general gossip, I ignore it. The best way to take away someone's power is to render them insignificant.

"Williing dupes, " indeed!!
This is the country famous for people being famous for being famous. And those who bow to that fame seem unable to engage in cognitive processing; perhaps are those very people who, while not at the IQ level of 80, simply do not use their innate intelligence.

It's pathetic. This phenomenon, much more than poor NECAP scores, makes me really doubt our educational system.

If these "exhibitionists" weren't disgusting enough due to their ignorance, idiocy, hatred, cruelty, etc., they are paid millions of dollars for it! Maybe if there were more good teachers being paid better wages, we wouldn't have to suffer the likes of Palin and Scarborough.

I sometimes watch Morning Joe. This morning he had on Haley Barbour - another Republican who just doesn't get it. He said Obama only won by 51%! Really Haley, Obama is one of about 4 other Presidents to win by over 50%. They continue to wonder why they lost, how dumb are they? Look at what MI just did to the unions. The more they screw the people the more people of any intelligence realize they are being led off a cliff. Palin is a media whore and who wants to hear that screeching voice except Sean Hannity? I think their time is up, I think the Tea Party is sinking in their own brew. Go for it Republicans, it's all good for us Democrats and I personally like watching the Republican party implode.
