Great News.... for Sarah Palin!

Big celebrations in Wingnut Land today as Chicago did not win the bid to host the 2016 Olympics. Now, normally, one would think folks who label themselves as "uber-patriots" would not be cheering for the US to lose at something. BUT! We're in Wingnut times now, so as of 11/5/08, it's totally cool to hate America and root against it in every regard. Even treason is cool. Check out some of these fun quotes from our Repuglican Braintrust commenting on this great victory against America:

As a citizen of the world who believes that No one nation can or should try to dominate another nation, I'm glad that the Obama White House's jingoist rhetoric and attempt to pay back Chicago cronies at the expense of undermining our relationships with our allies failed," he wrote.

McCormack's fellow conservatives joined in the celebration.

"Chicago and Tokyo eliminated. No Obamalypics," Michelle Malkin tweeted, following up with, "Game over on Obamalympics. Next up, Obamacare."

"Please, please let me break this news to you. It's so sweet," said Glenn Beck on his radio show.

"Hahahahaha," wrote Red State's Erick Erickson. "So Obama's pimped us to every two bit thug and dictator in the world, made promises to half the Olympic committee, and they did not even kiss him. So much for improving America's standing in the world, Barry O."

The Drudge Report announced the news like so: "WORLD REJECTS OBAMA: CHICAGO OUT IN FIRST ROUND. THE EGO HAS LANDED."

"The worst day of Obama's presidency, folks. The ego has landed. The world has rejected Obama," echoed Rush Limbaugh.

"President Obama fails to get the Olympics while unemployment goes to 9.8% Iran continues nuclear program. America needs focused leadership," Newt Gingrich tweeted. Then he added, "Somehow charm and oratory dont seem to work in foreign affirs but historians have warned that foreign policy is different than campaigning." (sic)

Awesome times, eh? In less than a year, these nutjob talking heads have switched from an attitude of any criticism of the USA and its glorious Repuglican leadership is high treason, to celebrating anything that appears to go against Obama, and America. It's striking, the dissonance.
