Wingnut on Wingnut Crime: King v Paul

Rand Paul is planning to file a class action suit on behalf of some 250,000 people against the NSA over its data mining operations. It’s a mostly pointless gesture (there are already at least two such cases going on behalf of specific plaintiffs, with district court rulings, and a class action suit will almost certainly be dismissed), but Rep. Peter King is spewing his usual stupid and hypocritical outrage over it.

Wingnut on Wingnut Crime: Keyes vs Cheney

While Liz Cheney is taking heavy criticism for demeaning her sister Mary’s same-sex marriage and family, Alan Keyes has another problem with Dick Cheney’s perhaps even more evil daughter: She just isn’t anti-gay enough for his tastes. Imagine being so anti-gay that Liz Cheney isn’t anti-gay enough for you. After all, this is a man who disowned his own daughter for being gay.

Wingnut on Wingnut Crime: Gheen v Fox News

William Gheen, the head of Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC), is mighty upset at Fox News. It seems that the news channel just isn’t working hard enough to make people afraid of the immigration reform bill being put together in the Senate. So he’s written an open letter to the network making a rather warped argument.

Wingnut on Wingnut Crime: Wiles vs Luter

Remember a couple weeks ago when Fred Luter, the head of the Southern Baptist Convention, bizarrely agreed with Rick Wiles that North Korea’s threats toward the United States were tied to same-sex marriage? Luter recanted those remarks on CNN, after initially denying having said it (Anderson Cooper played the audio for him). Now Wiles is calling Luter a yellow-bellied coward.
