Meet the Haters: You!

Eugene Robinson asks:
Somebody explain this to me: The president of the United States wins the Nobel Peace Prize, and Rush Limbaugh joins with the Taliban in bitterly denouncing the award? Glenn Beck has a conniption fit and demands that the president not accept what may be the world's most prestigious honor? The Republican National Committee issues a statement sarcastically mocking our nation's leader -- elected, you will recall, by a healthy majority -- as unworthy of such recognition?
Why, oh why, do conservatives hate America so?
What a great question. I'm stumped.

When 53 percent of Americans joined al Qaeda in supporting Obama for President I didn't realize it was because they hated America. I thought it was because they hated al Qaeda and believed that Obama had the best ideas and best interests of the country at heart. Silly me.

The difference is that Limbaugh actually said he was with the Taliban on this issue.

LIMBAUGH: Folks, do you realize something has happened here that we all agree with the Taliban and Iran about and that is he doesn't deserve the award. Now that's hilarious, that I'm on the same side of something with the Taliban, and that we all are on the same side as the Taliban.

It's a good thing that al Qaeda didn't post anything about liking the Phillies, or you wouldn't be able to cheer for them.
