Who says conservatives aren't funny?

Because everything that the Lefty blogosphere does is traitorous and stupid -- especially netroots organizing, which leads to traitorous shenanigans like trying to oust good Republicans like Joe Lieberman from your party -- the conservative blogosphere spends lots and lots of time denouncing it. And then, you know, copying it.

Witness the emergence of Rightroots, complete with its own logo, "which turns the already less-than-nimble GOP elephant into an even less dextrous, root-footed creature."

Says Paul: "I get the intended metaphor, but it's even easier to see an alternative one: If you thought the party that led us into unending war and a record-breaking deficit can't change... you're right."

And if you're part of that party...you may be Rightroots!
