Libertarian Moonbat

In local news, a moonbat was tossed out of D/FW International for being an insulting ass. This is what caught my eye:

She passed around the poster, which bore the title “Faces of Death” and messages to stop a possible military draft and elect Libertarian Aaron Russo president. (He lost the nomination.)

This is the sort of moonbattery that drove me out of the party. There’s no gain to be made by evangelizing over the war to these servicemen, especially by a 57 year old desert psycho woman. Could she have brought them to the cause? Sure. By pointing out that Blue Laws mean that these kids are old enough to die for thier country but not to drink a beer. By pointing out that gun grabbers are causing them to run short on pistol clips. But not like this. She’s just being stupid because it helps her ego.

“We weren’t really causing a scene,” she said. “I was talking to them like they were my kids.”

Talking to them like they were your kids, huh? In other words, you were talking down to them. You were talking to them like they were children. Talking to them like you think that only stupid people join the military. Yeah, I know exactly what you are saying.

    Are all spectrums of the political party nuts?

    I can’t tell since the craziest people (unfortunately) tend to be the most vocal.

    I would phrase it differently. There are nuts in all spectrums. The thing to do is to disavow the nuts when they pop up.
