A lot of you seem to think the wingnuts are going to be emboldened by Jones stepping down, and I find that curious. They aren’t going to feel emboldened by anything- they have already cranked it up to 11. They aren’t going to feel more energized because they have a scalp- that isn’t how they operate. Chriminy, a month into the administration Malkin was blaming Obama for the stock market- when it went back up, she seemed to lose all interest in it.
I think you fail to realize how these guys think. Nothing makes them feel emboldened or empowered- they had all three branches of government for most of the 2000 era, and they were permanent victims of Ted Kennedy. They got everything they wanted but it was the liberals and the media who were causing the setbacks in Iraq. Feeling emboldened because they got a scalp might seem logical and reasonable, but we are not dealing with rational actors. We are dealing with crazy people. Even if Jones did not step down, they would be behaving the same exact way, BECAUSE THEY ARE CRAZY PEOPLE.
Besides, the next week or two, they will all be distracted by something else. Michael Moore’s new movie is coming out. That will be the next feeding frenzy.
Also, Michael Moore is fat.
