Lunacy from Both Sides of the Aisle

Loons exist on both sides of the political spectrum.  Regardless if they are loons from the hard left or loons from the hard right, they provide humor and entertainment for most everyone else.

Joseph Farah, the editor of what I call the World Nut Daily (WND), was a panelist on Sean Hannity's Fox News program last night.  During the panel discussion, the subject came up promoting Florida Senator Marco Rubio as being one of the most talked about and desirable candidates to run as the Vice President on the GOP ticket.

Farah immediately chimed in saying that Rubio is ineligible for running as the VP on the GOP ticket because Rubio is 'not a natural born citizen' of the United States.

Farah, and the World Nut Daily, are some of the leading advocates of the Obama birtherism accusations - stating that President Obama is not eligible to serve as President as he is, in their claims, not a natural born citizen.  Farah and his fellow loons believe that the fact that someone was born within the territory of the United States is insufficient to make one a 'natural born citizen' - that the citizenship status of one's parents are also a factor - with 'natural born citizens' being those who parents who both hold American citizenship. 

This goes even further down the rabbit hole than those who believe that Obama wasn't born in Hawaii or that the birth certificate from Hawaii is the real birth certificate of Barack Obama.

In Marco Rubio's case, Farah calls him ineligible because he was born in 1971 and his parents were not naturalized as US citizens until 1975.

Representing the loons on the hard left is Representative Jim Moran of Virginia.  We're not quite sure if the D after his name is because he's a democrat or a dunce, but either way, it's bound to give him a pass from Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson for proclaiming himself the arbiter of blackness in America.

Representative Moran attacked Representative Alan West, a Republican member from Florida, who is a retired Army officer and an African-American by stating West 'is not only not representative of the African-American community or of the Republican Party, let alone of the American public.'

Video from Mediaite...

Representative Moran is well known regularly making vile and noxious comments about Jews, Israel, and conservatives.  In January, Moran set his target on those who oppose the policies of President Barack Obama by calling those who do so, racists...
“It [the Republican successes in the 2010 elections] happened for the same reason the Civil War happened in the United States. It happened because the Southern states, the slaveholding states, didn’t want to see a president who was opposed to slavery. In this case, I believe, a lot of people in the United States don’t want to be governed by an African-American, particularly one who is liberal, who wants to spend money and who wants to reach out to include everyone in our society.”
Unsurprisingly, the meme that opposition to Obama is entirely based on racism is rampant at MSNBC...
