Conservatives Conflate Official McCain Events With Random Sh*t They Find on Google

Election '08

The Anchor Baby summarizes the wingnut pushback on the unmasking of the diseased Republican base:

The Obamedia is attempting to set yet another false narrative: The narrative of the McCain "mob." McCain-Palin rallies are out of control, they wheedle. Conservatives are mad! They're yelling mean things about Obama and calling him names! It' scaaaaary!


Let's talk about "insane rage" and "violent escalation." This is insane rage -- Madonna bashing Sarah Palin and shrieking "I will kick her ass..."
Did you see what AB just did? She went from "McCain-Palin rallies" to a Madonna concert. (Glenn Reynolds used the same tactic -- an NHL game and an Obama campaign rally are the same thing!)

Um, since when do we hold Madonna concerts to the same standards of decorum as presidential campaign events?
