Wingnut on Wingnut Crime: Tea Party vs Fox News

One of the amusing things about watching the far right is the endless schisms produced by zealotry. It’s a constant battle to prove who is and is not pure enough. The latest example is a Tea Party boycott of Fox News for its alleged left turn after the election. Because Sean Hannity is just not conservative enough for them.

Wingnut on Wingnut Crime: Rove vs Palin

During Sarah Palin’s speech at CPAC, which was — predictably — little more than a long list of platitudes and one-liners (my favorite was when she read a line about Obama using teleprompters off her teleprompter), Sarah Palin took a shot at Karl Rove for his support of more establishment candidates over the seriously far-right nuts that Palin tends to like.

Wingnut on Wingnut Crime: Ham vs Jeffress

Ken Ham loves to criticize his fellow fundamentalists whenever they deviate from his young earth creationist beliefs, accusing them of undermining belief in the Bible unless they interpret it exactly as he did. His latest target is Robert Jeffress, who thinks Adam and Eve were real people but accepts that the age of the universe “could have been” older than a few thousand years.

Wingnut on Wingnut Crime: Keyes vs Beck

We’ve seen a lot of battles between wingnuts in the last couple years, but this one is a battle of true heavyweights. Alan Keyes and Glenn Beck have spouted enough crazy during their lifetimes to make the Joker from Batman seem reasonable. And now Keyes is turning on Beck because he’s just not quite crazy enough:

This week’s example of wingnut on wingnut crime takes place in New York, where Marco Rubio went on a charm offensive among powerful Wall Street types to raise money for his campaign war chest. Rep. Peter King, the chief Republican blowhard of New York, went absolutely apeshit over it because Rubio voted against the relief bill for Hurricane Sandy victims.

Wingnut on Wingnut Crime: Terry vs Ohio Right to Life

Pop the popcorn, kids, it’s wingnut on wingnut crime time again. This time it’s the far-far-right anti-choicers, represented by Randall Terry’s lackey David Lewis, and the far-right anti-choices, the Ohio Right to Life. Because the latter group didn’t support the nutty “heartbeat bill” in that state, Lewis goes on the attack:

Wingnut on Wingnut Crime: King vs Boehner

Pop the popcorn, kids, it’s wingnut-on-wingnut crime time again. This time it’s Rep. Peter King, one of the loopiest Republican congressmen, against the speaker of the house, John Boehner. King is furious that Boehner didn’t bring up a bill to send billions in aid to the states impacted by Hurricane Sandy. It seems the speaker promised to bring it up for a vote and then changed his mind.

Aww. The Breitbart Kids are Fighting

This could make a good segment on wingnut on wingnut crime. Right wing loon Dana Loesch — truly one of the most vile voices on the right, rivaling Ann Coulter — is suing Breitbart.com, demanding that she be released from her contract and given $75,000 for not publishing her stuff and not allowing her to publish it elsewhere either.

Wingnut on Wingnut Crime: Hutcherson vs Focus on the Family

James Dobson is no longer a part of Focus on the Family and some people in the wingnut set have never gotten over that. The Worldnutdaily is one of them, and they’re rallying the troops to slam the group after its leader, Jim Daly, actually said something almost reasonable after the election.
