So to the rest of us, the vitriol spewing from the angry right (Mike Savage, Rush, Sean “Great American” Hannity, Glen Beck… all of Fox “news”) is curious if not outright disconcerting. How can the world look so different from their perspective? Sure, ratcheting people up and employing half truths (if that) is their job, well what they get paid for at any rate, but the hypocrisy seems a little thick, even for this band of McCarthy-lites. Anyone who disagrees with their particular kneejerk brand of conservatism is quickly labeled both a Socialist and a Nazi. You know, if you’re going to slander the freely elected leader of the country that you purport to love, you could at least do a little homework and find out that those two positions are, ideologically, mutually exclusive.

But, as is frequently the case, Jon Stewart has entertainingly captured the general reaction to those crazy fellers on Fox better than I can here on my little blog (must be my lack of a teleprompter). Check it out.
