Anti-Obama signs in New Orleans -- on private property -- have set off a frenzy of prog protests against free speech. Former and current politicians have "met" with the property owner as mobs gather near the offender's home. Local city council members are plotting ways to punish the homeowner and squelch his speech: Of course.... Read More
The Tucson massacre ghouls who are now trying to criminalize conservatism have forced our hand. They need to be reminded. You need to be reminded. Confront them. Don't be cowed into silence. And don't let the media whitewash the sins of the hypocritical Left in their naked attempt to suppress the law-abiding, constitutionally-protected, peaceful, vigorous... Read More
I'm still on semi-vacation, but the Left never takes a break from falsely accusing the Right of fomenting hatred and violence through political speech. The MSM never takes a break from whitewashing leftist intolerance, death threats, and extremism -- and engaging in selective reporting (or rather, non-reporting) of the long history of leftists' manufacturing of...

Bill Sammon points out what I reported on at length in my "Assassination Chic" chapter of Unhinged and in years of my Unhinged blog archives: Journalists don't care about nutballs and extremely extreme extremists unless they can be used to embarrass conservatives. As it has always been: News outlets that are focusing on the incendiary... Read More
Obama-bots are in a tizzy over a silly poster of Dear Leader as The Joker. The BDS-infected Left may have wiped the violent imagery and assassination fascination targeting the president from their memories. I haven't: *** Related: The Anchoress notes the race-card players and celebrates free speech, Hillary-style: As Hillary Clinton famously yelled, “I am... Read More
"Patriot or crackpot?"
File under "People with waaaay too much time on their hands." But I guess it's a lot more fun for these people to chase after Bush than it is to watch the Obama-culpo Cliff Diver currently occupying the White House. Ask Bob Alexander how often he's heard the word "quixotic" recently. The approximate answer: all... Read More
For eight years, we've heard "Bushitler" invoked endlessly. Again: And again. And again. And again. And again: Now, the tables have been turned. Some folks are invoking Nazi allusions against Barack Obama. I've pretty much stayed away from using such rhetoric against those with whom I disagree -- especially having been on the receiving end...

Missing W.
You may be familiar with the popular website "Post Secret." It's a gathering place for anonymous people to share their postcard-sized confessions. I've diagnosed a new left-wing disease suffered by at least one Post Secret user: Post-traumatic BDS syndrome. Never fear, dear patient. Just transfer all your deep-seated hatred to Rush. Problem solved!
BDS lives.
And they lecture us about showing more respect? Wonder how many of the people booing at the ceremony or singing "Hey, hey, goodbye" as Executive One lifted off were carrying media credentials. BDS never dies.
Give me your poor, your tired, your Bush-deranged.
Iraqi journalist Muntazer al-Zaidi, the international moonbat who threw his shoes at President Bush, wants refuge in Switzerland: AN Iraqi journalist who hurled his shoes at US President George W Bush in Baghdad last month is to seek political asylum in Switzerland, a Geneva lawyer told the daily La Tribune de Geneve today. Muntazer al-Zaidi... Read More
President Bush delivered his farewell address this evening. He leaves a mixed legacy. I give him credit where it is due and blame where it is due. But one thing is unadulterated: The pure contempt of the man from the MSM. Here's how the Associated Press headlined its dispatch about the speech: Bush address includes... Read More

A Bush-deranged bomber in Aspen, Colorado, killed himself in a botched bank robbery/mass murder attempt. The profanity-laced suicide note is here.

Oh, give me a super-sized break. Leftie '60s leftover/songwriter Peter Yarrow at the Huffington Post fumes over the "Barack the Magic Negro" parody that has RNC candidate Chip Saltsman in hot water. All of sudden -- after eight years of "F**k Bush" bumper stickers and "Kill Bush" assassination chic and Bush-or-Chimp parodies -- the left... Read More
Chris Matthews won the Media Research Center's quote of the year with his Obamedia-topping Leg O' Thrill and Tingle remark. But Matthews only took first honors because Washington Post reporter Eli Saslow waited until Christmas to file his tribute to Obama's sun-kissed pectorals. Have they no shame? No, they do not. The gushing reminded me... Read More
You can catch me on Neil Cavuto's show around 4:30pm Eastern-ish to talk about Bush and the mocking media's shoe shuffle.
An unhinged Iraqi journalist fulfills the dream of every MSNBC anchor and NYTimes editorial columnist by throwing his shoes at President Bush during an impromptu news conference in Baghdad. Watch. Thankfully, President Bush was not hurt. *** Snort. Patterico writes: "I think I heard that Iraqi journalist scream 'Don't tase me, bro!' as he got... Read More
Pucker up.
Guess she took some medication for her chronic Bush Derangement Syndrome. Hope the president had a strong sanitizer. I need eye bleach:
Good cheer.
Finally, something merry!
I occasionally get hate mail written in the teeniest, tiniest scrawl that will go on and on for pages. I'm always fascinated by the painstaking script -- and the amount of time that must have gone into working out whatever strange pathologies gripped the writer. I was reminded of those bizarre letters when I took... Read More
“Cold chicken salad and plain pound cake,” anyone?
President Obama's Chicago machine is kicking into high gear to plan and fund his massive, unprecedented inaugural festivities. He just appointed an inauguration planning committee that includes his hometown cronies William Daley and Penny Pritzker. They've got a campaign-style website counting down the days to the massive party in Washington. To deflect attention from the... Read More
BDS: It never ends.
The Bush Derangement Syndrome lemmings on the Internet lit up yesterday over a video that supposedly showed world leaders "snubbing" George Bush and refusing to shake his hand. CNN moron Rick Sanchez wet his pants over the video, exulting that Bush was being treated like the kid in high school with "cooties." He then ranted... Read More
Memorial Day mania.
I'm telling ya, I need to turn Unhinged into an encyclopedia set. The Memorial Day holiday brought out the BDS crazies this weekend. In case you missed it, the NYTimes used Memorial Day to bludgeon President Bush with a disingenuous editorial about the GI Bill. Don't read it if you've already had breakfast. But here's... Read More
"Docile doormat."
Mark Morford of the San Francisco Chronicle's website is one of the MSM's most unhinged, hate-filled columnists. Today he earns his pay by railing against Laura Bush because she isn't an obnoxious, left-wing elite bigmouth like Teresa Heinz Kerry and because she doesn't believe, as Hillary Clinton did, that her role as First Lady gives...

"The president and vice president lied and a million innocent Iraqis died."
On C-SPAN this morning, I caught GOP Rep. Cliff Stearns chastising impeachment ringleader Dennis Kucinich for offending remarks he had just made about President Bush on the House floor. What did Kucinich say? Click to watch: Railed Kucinich: "The president and vice president lied and a million innocent Iraqis died...We already know the State of... Read More
Liberal crack-up.
Frustrated by the failure of the Dem leadership to carry through with impeachment, some Bush-haters in Brattleboro, Vermont want to subject President Bush and VP Cheney to arrest if they set foot in their town. Consider it sort of a do-it-yourself impeachment alternative: President Bush may soon have a new reason to avoid left-leaning Vermont:... Read More
Not Moving On.
Remember "Post election-selection trama"--or "PEST?" It's the liberal disease that predated Bush Derangement Syndrome, causing lefties of all shapes and sizes (e.g., Michael Moore) to sink into depression and shock as a result of the 2004 election. Symptoms linger. And a new Hollywood movie's upcoming release is bound to help stoke PESTies further. Via Politico:... Read More
CDS.
Like clockwork, the nutroots exulted over the fire near Vice President Dick Cheney's ceremonial office at the Old Executive Office Building in D.C. this morning. Here's a typical e-mail that littered my mailbox: There's already a "Reichstag" reference at the Huffington Post: And via Bryan Preston, more Reichstag references at the Democratic Underground cesspool.

Update: A reader notes that this rant is from last year. It's getting passed around post-Kucinich impeachment stunt... Wow. Now, that was unhinged. And despite the satire and comic label, you get the sense he probably believes almost every heaving word of it published in "The Progressive." You know his readership does. Maybe John Edwards...

They wear jihadi keffiyehs. And Che shirts. And Truther wear. And now...Impeach Bush socks!

Bee-dee-ess.
Some members of the Washington press corps are tittering over a snafu that led the United Nations to publish a draft copy of President Bush's U.N. speech yesterday on the United Nations website. The draft was marked up and included the cell phone numbers of some of Bush's speechwriters. But, more importantly, to the Bush-hating... Read More

No joke: Nutroots blogger sees steam, blames Bush.

I have received a smattering of e-mails from liberals who are siding with Denmark and the European newspaper editors in the Cartoon Jihad. (See, for example, the liberal blogger at Deep Thought.)

Julianne Malveaux, an "economist, columnist, lecturer, motivator, and civic leader," called America a "terrorist nation" on the Sean Hannity radio show. Malveaux then accuses U.S. troops of "beating" Guantanamo Bay detainees, parrots Ward Churchill's "chickens coming home to roost" diatribe, and rants about President Bush being "out of control." She is the author, you will... Read More

Sometimes, "art" is nothing more than hatred wrapped in vulgarity framed with stupidity hung on a wall. Like many of you, I read the this Drudge-linked story last week describing a vulgar anti-Bush painting that depicted the president getting sodomized by a Saudi over a barrel of oil. There was something missing, though. The online... Read More
