Blame the hippiesIt really a challenge to caricature rightwingers when they so often act like caracatures of themselves. I admire people like cartoonist Tom Tomorrow who consistently do it successfully.
This doesn't look like a potential left-right alliance in the making to me: Andrew Leonard reports on rightwingers literally blaming the hippies of circa 1970 for causing the financial collapse of 2008: Tune in, turn on, buy a credit swap Salon 02/24/10.
So I watched a 10-minute clip from Fox's Sean Hannity introducing the documentary.This so disgusting and silly that it's almost sad. This is real fanaticism.
