No Time Out Time For Republican Crazies

It becomes increasingly clear that right wing talk hosts and members of the Republican party have reached the conclusion that relentless anger and hate directed at President Obama eventually pays off. After all, many believe where there is smoke, there must be fire. Occasionally, a voice of reason can be heard in Republican ranks such as that of Newt Gingrich who noted that Republican presidents Reagan and Bush had also made speeches to school children urging them to work hard. Right wing nut cases like Beck and Limbaugh are urging schools to boycott the president’s speech on grounds that he is propogating Socialist ideas.

Rush has a point. It definitely is Socialist, not Republican, to urge students to read books and learn from them. After all, for Bill O’Reilly and Glenn Beck, the idea that one could learn from reading historical works is undoubtedly an attempt to brainwash Americans into supporting the idea children should go to libraries and read.

In the world of Republican crazies, actually reading historical works for information rather than listening to the rants of nut cases is an example of how some children have been brainwashed by the liberal establishment.

Where ignorance is bliss is where you will find a good Republican.
