Savage: Maybe Obama Killed Breitbart

The bizarre conspiracy theories about Obama having Andrew Breitbart killed have gone from the Twitterverse to Michael Savage’s radio show. The lunatic right wing talker promoted the idea during his show the day Breitbart collapsed of an apparent heart attack. And now the Worldnutdaily is promoting that claim, to no one’s surprise.

Santorum Even Angering Catholics

One of the obvious ironies in Rick Santorum’s absurd attacks on education is that the Catholic Church, (some of) whose beliefs he so loudly espouses, has a long tradition of serious scholarship. Jesuit schools, in particular, are justifiably viewed as excellent educational institutions. Notre Dame, Georgetown and many other Catholic universities are among the finest colleges in the country.

Graham Apologizes to Obama

Franklin Graham apologized for questioning President Obama’s religious faith, telling CNN, “I regret any comments I have ever made which may have cast any doubt on the personal faith of our president, Mr. Obama.” Just like his father apologized to Jews for calling them a “synagogue of Satan” and saying, “They don’t know how I really feel about what they’re doing to this country.”

Limbaugh Losing Advertisers

Rush Limbaugh’s notpology for this vile attack on Sandra Fluke was clearly designed to prevent more advertisers from jumping ship.

And at least one of them is not buying the fake apology. The CEO of that company said on its website:

The moment I heard about the school shooting in Ohio, I was anxiously awaiting the first wingnut to tell the world that if only we forced students to say government-written prayers every morning, this sort of thing wouldn’t happen. Jerry Newcombe of Truth in Action Ministries, come on down. Amusingly, he actually starts by hinting at the real reason why it likely happened:

Wingnut on Wingnut Crime: Howse vs Cameron

Gather round kids, the wingnuts are fighting with each other again. This time it’s the seriously hardcore Brannon Howse of Worldview Weekend taking on the terminally stupid Kirk Cameron over the latter’s new movie Monument, which is basically a David Barton screed put on film. It’s apparently a tour of monuments and buildings in DC that supposedly prove that we were a Christian nation all along and therefore Ray Comfort should be president, or something. Howse begs to differ:
