I've mentioned this here a couple of times before, but I don't read right-wing pieces, listen to Rush Limbaugh's show, or watch Fox News just looking for something to piss me off. I have a life to lead and enough daily irritations that I can't imagine being lunatic enough to want to willfully pile more on my plate.
That said, a bitter and silly flame war is raging on Twitter right now between the usual suspects on each extreme of the political spectrum and somebody on the conservative side linked to an article in the Daily Caller that "tells it like it is."
The piece is such a staggering display of shameless Randian dickishness that it almost reads like a parody.
The Daily Caller: The Truth About the Wisconsin Protesters/2.28.11
This goes really well with that earlier clip from last night's Daily Show; the ability these guys have to blame the victim and keep a straight face while doing it just boggles the mind. When the political climate has made it okay to beat up on teachers, you know we're way down the rabbit hole.
