We on the left are always amazed by the ability of them on the right to march in lock step on every issue. Last week, we reported on wingnut reaction to The New York Times’s (and The L.A. Times’s and The Wall Street Journal’s) reporting on Bu$hCo’s Bank Surveillance Program™. If anything, the Reich Wing has increased the volume of its calls for the heads of Bill Keller and anyone else involved … except for those at The Wall Street Journal. Let’s check out the usual suspects:
All Things Beautiful – I’m not the only one who thinks the NYT should be prosecuted - a whole bunch of other wingnuts do too! And isn’t Noel Sheppard over at The American Thinker clever?
All Things Conservative – gee, do you think whoever leaked the existence of the program to the NYT hates Bush?
American Thinker – Risen, Lichtblau, and Keller all belong in jail because then maybe someone else could win a Pulitzer, like me, Noel Sheppard, the clever one.
Atlas Shrugs – the left, Democrats, and the MSM are responsible for the deaths of soldiers and the NYT is trying to sell papers and Saddam was in bed with Osama and Fox is six percent owned by the Saudis and that’s why you can’t trust Fox anymore and the Saudis are buying up Georgetown and Harvard and … did I mention I’m completely batshit insane?
Blue Crab Boulevard – I am not a cog in the right wing attack machine even though I link to the same crap and make the same arguments exonerating The Wall Street Journal.
Bullwinkle Blog – not gonna’ write anything, so I’ll use Malkin’s idea of posting old WWII posters to show Bush is a real War Preznit.
Captain’s Quarters – the program will now be shut down solely because of the NYT and Keller even though the EU was going to shut down the program before the its existence was disclosed by the NYT.
Confederate Yankee – CNN and the NYT haven’t been bombed by our military which proves that there’s no administration war on journalists, and Glenn Greenwald is dumber than Jason Leopold.
Flopping Aces – if I link to enough crap by other bloggers it might prove the NYT should be fragged, but I will also put Lee Harvey Oswald’s picture next to Kerry’s and Murtha’s to make a point I'm not even sure I understand.
GOP Bloggers– let’s call him Benedict Keller! That'll be fun!
Hot Air – because of Justice Kennedy, the NYT will never be prosecuted … and doesn’t it suck that we’d never get a jury with 12 wingnuts on it?
Hugh Hewitt – the GWOT™ is too a real war! And Tom Brokaw’s real stupid.
Instapundit – the NYT thinks European privacy laws are more important than killing terrorists.
Junkyardblog – I can’t explain how the NYT and LAT broke the law, but Daou linked to me when I tried to explain so my traffic’s way up … even though it’s all stupid moonbats.
LGF - you just know George Soros is behind all of this.
Macsmind – Hastert won’t call for the NYT’s editors to be strung up - what a wuss!
Michelle Malkin – here’s a list of the NYT’s advertisers so you can boycott them … and no, I don’t have a list of The Wall Street Journal’s advertisers … what? NAH NAH NAH NAH, I CAN'T HEEEAAARRR YOOOUUU!
NRO – it’s really all the NYT’s fault, because they do this all the time and they hate America more than the LAT does and waaay more than the WSJ does – really, ask anyone.
NRO (Deroy Murdock) – has the NYT forgotten the terrorists attacked Manhattan? What if there’s a dirty bomb? Don’t they understand their thyroids would get messed up and that they’d lose a lot of readers?
Patterico’s Pontifications – the NYT and LAT are no better than a judge sitting in a car and telling a drug dealer that the cops are about to bust him … no I’m serious! Why won’t anybody take me seriously?
Powerline – the NYT editors are traitors, just like the Belgians and the Canadians.
Protein Wisdom – even if Bush jails the NYT and LAT editors it’s not like we’ve turned into China or the Soviet Union or anything ... shit … do you think these run-on sentences mean my medication needs to be adjusted again?
Real Clear Politics – if we tell enough stories about WWII we can fool people into thinking the NYT’s story will make us lose the war in Iraq.
Security Watchtower – maybe if Bush picks a fight with the NYT we won’t get crushed in the November elections.
The Real Ugly American - why does The Hill hate America?
Townhall (Ann Coulter) - I don't really have anything useful to add, so let me take this opportunity to charge Janeane Garofalo and Randi Rhodes with treason.
Townhall (Cal Thomas) – this isn’t about the First Amendment, it’s about Arthur Sulzberger’s Bush Derangement Syndrome™, and gee, don’t you miss the Greatest Generation? They’d have shot the leaker … not that I’m suggesting that or anything.
Townhall (Jonah Goldberg) – liberals used 9/11 to argue for single-payer health care, and they hate Bush, but his approval ratings went up after the NSA program was exposed and … oh, shit … they didn’t?
Townhall (Linda Chavez) – I hate the politics of personal destruction because the left destroyed me when they found out I didn’t pay social security for my nanny, but I’m perfectly willing for those that leaked to the NYT to be personally destroyed.
Townhall (Michelle Malkin) – we’re all going to be killed by terrorists because of the NYT, but before you die, please buy my books and read my blog.
Townhall (Kathleen Parker) – in this column, I pretend to be fair and balanced about the NYT but don't do a very good job, and isn’t it sad that poor President Bush had to become president when he had to deal with all these terrorists ‘n stuff?
Looks like everybody's in line!
