It does not take a genius to figure out that ‘progressives’ are paranoid about Tea Party people and Town Hall conservatives. Paranoids cannot stop talking about the object of their paranoia.
One case in point: Rachel “Mad Cow” Maddow of MSNBC. Rachel, who believes all evil can be traced to Christians and Republicans, cannot stomach mainstream Americans exercising their constitutional rights. In fact all four stomachs appear upset. She ruminates about ‘insane’ tea party folks quite often. The ever-snide and hysterical Maddow will have you know the Tea Party movement is obviously astroturf because, well, that’s the way she wants it to be, so, ‘Poof!’, it simply is as she says. Like her steamed colleague Keith ‘The Visigoth” Olbermann, she wastes little time gathering facts, or subjecting them to thoughtful analysis. Chewing cud and jumping to comfortable conclusions is more efficient in the quest to brain damage your viewers.
