Is it just my imagination or has the Middle East uproar opened the gates to another round of severe idiocy? And I’m not meaning just about the Middle East.

The danger of that bottle getting uncorked is that it’s blown hither and yon and where it lands, no one can know.

A few examples. Some of them linked, but a few I’ve come across in the past few days.

Glenn Beck is of course the KING of idiocy. His nutzy caliphate conspiracy theories are leading the charge of loopiness. Even the feminist uprising in Italy is joined, as well as Google (there must be  a reason why Google is having difficulties in Beijing for instance–can’t you see the connection?). The Left in all its glorious rainbow of elements is in bed with the commies and the Islamic extremists, all bent on taking down civilization.

I hurried to look at my “progressive” ID and sure ‘nuf, there it was: My goal is the destruction of civilization and I pledge allegiance to an Islamic caliphate. My only question is, do I have to dress for dinner?

Now, you may never have heart of a dude named Herman Cain. No reason you should. He used to own a fast food joint, a chain of them–Godfather’s Pizza. He has a math degree. He’s running for president. He’s the darling of the “extreme extreme white right-wing” because he is a good House Negro. He said at CPAC that liberals  have as their goal “the destruction of America.”

Well, Mr. Cain (have a brother named Abel by any chance?). I think you could reasonable say, “the liberal agenda will in my opinion result in the destruction of America. But what you said? That makes you a blithering idiot.

Some amoeba in Iowa introduced a bill in the House that would give business owners the right to refuse service to anyone whose “lifestyle” they did not agree with. Aimed at gay marriage couples, it could be used to discriminate against anyone, interracial marriage, non-Christians, you name it. One wonders where this blithering idiot got his high school diploma. Mail-order?

The Guvnor of Wisconsin has unilaterally ended the right of public employees to bargain collectively. And he says the National Guard is ready to keep the peace should there be any “unrest.” A blithering idiot? You betcha.  I bet if there are any marches, Glenn will hook it up with the caliphate.

Kansas delights us with Connie O’Brien, GOPer in her House, got all snooty and such when her “Kansas” born son was denied financial aid for school. In the line in front of them was a woman, who “we could tell by looking at her was not originally from this country. . .” Ms. O’Brien explained that she was not black, not Asian, and had an olive complexion– thus she was assuredly an illegal.

Of course a number of folks demanded she apologize. Ms. O’Brien said, well, no, not until she had had “time to think.” Yesssss. Thinking an underused art ma’am. You are a blithering idiot.

Most of the commenters on The Blaze are blithering idiots. After reading it for a couple of weeks, I’ve realized that there are only about 30 people who do all the commenting. But that’s thirty blithering idiots lurking around the US of A. One of them may be your neighbor. Beware.

No doubt you are aware that “community organizer” is a very very bad thing. The wacko right says it, so it must be true. But yesterday, I was half-listening (one should never do more) to Glenny talk about his caliphate notions, when he urged everyone to hook up on his website to become a network of “knowledgeable” folks. He said the website would be functioning as a “community organizer.” I’m sure that the Blaze commenters will be vilifying Beck today. Wanna bet? I got this lovely bridge to sell ya.

Numerous blithering idiots are claiming that everything from McDonald’s to the Vatican are “infiltrated by members of the Muslim Brotherhood.” Even CPAC is not immune. Frank Gaffney and Pam Geller say so. But both are notorious blithering idiots. It’s a wash.

Puzzle of the day: What did she say?  Palin is always a blithering idiot candidate. Palin in her recent interview with CBN:

“But when it comes to, and David, perhaps what it is that you’re suggesting in the question is should the GOP, should conservatives not reach out to others, not participate in events or forums that perhaps are rising within those forums are issues that maybe we don’t personally agree with?”—on the inclusion of pro-gay groups in the CPAC conference, in an interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network, Feb. 4, 2011

In South Dakota, a bill has been introduced that would make it justifiable homicide to kill an abortion doctor. Yep, and this one has passed out of committee by a nine-to-three vote. You guessed it. It is the GOP who are doing this one too. Does this get your vote as the biggest blithering idiot? Or as they say, if you can’t stop ’em one way, well, try another way.

Everyone at The Blaze and at National Review are by definition blithering idiots.

Notice the common theme here? If you didn’t it’s quite simply this: All of these clowns are Republicans. It really makes me want to have a law that makes political identification by means of a forehead tatoo mandatory. I want to know the enemy, immediately, before he/she opens the maw of insanity and frizzles my brain.
