Wing-nuts and wing-nut parodies, part deux

A few weeks ago, I wrote:


The right has become so paranoid -- and often so filled with mindless hatred and bigotry -- that, quite frankly, it's pretty much impossible to differentiate between real "conservatives" and the many wingnut parodies that have sprung up around the internet. Maybe the parody sites should close up shop.

Messed Up Are the Peacemakers
There is ... a palpable sense of self-satisfaction among those who advocate peace at any price. It is all too easy to bask in your own virtue while castigating someone else as a warmonger, even though few peace treaties have achieved much unless preceded by decisive military action. The greatest peacemakers in modern history were generals like the Duke of Wellington, William Tecumseh Sherman, Curtis LeMay, George S. Patton and Ariel Sharon, who ruthlessly waged war on behalf of Western democracies.
