Wha?

You may have noticed it's been a little quiet around here lately. You know I've been beyond busy when an unprecedented level of right wing craziness is on display and coinciding with one of the most entertaining NCAA tournaments of all-time (which coincides with my worst bracket of all-time) doesn't bring me to the Basement. Anyway, too much has passed to even attempt to comment on at this point but I read a quote on Kos from this Washington Post article and thought it was too perfect not to pass on.
The call to arms was issued at 5:55 a.m. last Friday.

"To all modern Sons of Liberty: THIS is your time. Break their windows. Break them NOW."

These were the words of Mike Vanderboegh, a 57-year-old former militiaman from Alabama, who took to his blog urging people who opposed the historic health-care reform legislation -- he calls it "Nancy Pelosi's Intolerable Act" -- to throw bricks through the windows of Democratic offices nationwide. [...]

In the days that followed, glass windows and doors were shattered at local Democratic Party offices and the district offices of House Democrats from Arizona to Kansas to New York. [...]

Vanderboegh was unapologetic in a 45-minute telephone interview with The Washington Post early Thursday. He said he believes throwing bricks through windows sends a warning to Democratic lawmakers that the health-care reform legislation they passed Sunday has caused so much unrest that it could result in a civil war.
Yeah, pretty much your typical nutjob running around in fatigues imagining himself defending "the real America" from all of the socialist assholes. I wonder how these guys find time to do all of this stuff. I mean, what do they do for money?
Vanderboegh said he once worked as a warehouse manager but now lives on government disability checks.
Oh...of course. HE CASHES CHECKS FROM THE GOVERNMENT!

Hilarious. What a fucking asshole. If this guy wants to live out teabagger fantasies maybe he should start by breaking out his own windows.
