Wingnuts Still Pushing Obama's Secret: He's a Muslim—Not!

Ah, to be a Wingnut, to live in a fact-free world where whatever you want to believe can be true.

It must be a great way to live: Who needs facts? They're dull. Who needs evidence? That's silly. Wingnuts have tremendous faith in their own powers of imagination.

In other words, if they can imagine it, why—presto!—it could be true. Hell, it probably is.

All of which brings us to the radio stylings of G. Gordon Liddy, who this week advanced the "Obama is a secret Muslim" theory, a theory based on thin air. 

As Media Matters has documented, this idea won't die, despite weak links to hard facts and real evidence. Moreover, it shows the dishonest lengths some wingbags will go to discredit the president.

It's stupid and dangerous, but these folks keep trying. Read the full report here.

I like this term "wingbags." It makes me think of a discount deal from the Colonel.
