Website of the Week (1/11/10): Tinfoiler – We have a lot of problems… labels itself as political paranoia satire. It’s a deadpan, Swiftian take on right wing extremism, pushing every position to its absurd illogical conclusion. Comparable with Swift’s,  A Modest Proposal.

Here’s an example, from What The Constitution Really Says:

A lot of people have been throwing around the word “Constitution” lately without truly understanding it.  In fact, I think that liberals actually do their best to disobey the Constitution as often as possible.  We’ve gone many years ignoring the document.  Finally, we have good people moving towards public office that completely understand the Constitution and will do their best to make us all obey it.  People like Sarah Palin, Christine O’Donnell, Sharron Angle and Glenn Beck have been given to us to help restore the Constitution that Jesus blessed us with on the founding of this country.  The founding fathers would be rolling over in their graves if they knew what Obama has done with this country.  Men like Ben Franklin and Christopher Columbus would be in tears knowing that liberals disobeyed the rules they specifically and clearly wrote into the Constitution.

The terrifying thing is that whatever Tinfoiler writes, there’s a Teabagger out there who actually believes it. And after tomorrow, some of them will be making laws on our behalf. The lunatics are taking over the asylum, although the staff had their say at the Rally to Restore Sanity on Saturday.

Here’s what Constitution might look like if the Teabaggers had their way:

Which begs the question, is all this just whistling in the dark? Is satire all we’ve got when reason is despised as elitist?

Here’s the final word from Keith Olbermann on Countdown. Why isn’t President Obama saying this?
