Today’s dumbass quote of the day comes to you from the undisputed king of right wing bullshit, Rush Limbaugh. On his radio show on Halloween, he delivered this moronic rant about health insurance policies under the Affordable Care Act covering things he doesn’t like:

Joel Pollak of Breitbart.com doesn’t seem to be too bright a fellow. For some reason, he seems to think that a line of questioning from Rep. Renee Ellmers to HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius was brilliant. In fact, gives it an “award for best line of questioning.” Here’s the exchange:

Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wisconsin) apparently plans to file a lawsuit to deny government subsidies to members of Congress and their staff. Those people currently get about 75% of their premiums paid by the government, which is their employer. Just like most employees in the private sector do.

Every day I write about this stuff, but I still find it astonishing how brazenly wingnuts are either A) completely disconnected from reality or B) blatant liars. Sen. James Inhofe, who may be the dumbest man in the Senate, delivered this whopper on Sunday:

Sean Hannity recently presented three stories of Real Americanstm who had “stories that the media refuses to cover” about how Obamacare was doing terrible damage to them. Eric Stern decided to call up all three couples to get the real story and, surprise surprise, they all turned out to be false. Story #1:

So screams the headline from the Worldnetdaily: “Obama ‘Crashing Health-Care Site on Purpose.’” That article is based upon a column from Avik Roy in Forbes which doesn’t actually say that. What it does say is that a decision was made to have that website do more than the bare minimum so that visitors to the …
