Michelle Bachman is trying to stop the census because she thinks it could lead to Nisei-style internment camps, or something.

Sam Brownback has introduced legislation banning mermaids and centaurs.
Michael Steele says he'll bring blacks back to the GOP with fried chicken.
A number of rightwing commentators still insist that investigating Bill Clinton's blow job was more important than Cheney's illegal concealment of U.S. death squads.

Rightwing bloggers, who days ago were screeching about the media's coverage of Bristol Palin, are now hurling racial slurs and insults at...Malia Obama.

Karl Rove, Bush's domestic policy czar, whines about Obama's decision to also use...policy czars.
Fox gets caught selectively editing video to make Obama look like he's checking out a woman's rear end.
Gee, what do you think the Republicans would say if the Democrats, all within a day or two, gave us this cornucopia of concentration camps, fake presidents, mermaids, centaurs, black folks eating fried chicken, secret death squads, racist Senators, hurling racist insults at children, trying to drown critics, covering up sexual liaisons, hypocrisy, faking video of the president...?
