I really can't think of a more exemplary demonstration of the triumph of unreason in America than the sad fact that someone who runs a blog that features on a daily basis shrieking hysterical right-wing craziness that leaps off the page at you is asked to discuss politics on a major pretend news network on a pretend news show hosted by a comedian.
Update: To elaborate, here is a post where Geller says that President Obama is attempting to create a Nazi brownshirt youth movement which employs "thuggery and intimidation" to indoctrinate children into national socialism. That's insane, ok? Why is someone with no intellectual or academic accomplishments besides a demonstrated ability to say rabidly insane things about "liberals" and who wants to exterminate Muslims appearing on national tv? What's worse, what does it say about us as a society that someone who herself has an affinity for crypto-fascists and believes the absurd conspiracy theory that the President is a foreign agent (non-citizen)*, writes a book arguing that the Obama administration is waging "war on America" and gets a forward written by a former United States ambassador to the UN.
Are you kidding me? Is there anything short of flat-out white supremacism that would discredit a "conservative?" It's as if as long as you're saying terrible, horrible things about "liberals" - regardless of factuality or any kind of connection to reality - there is a place for you somewhere in the conservative movement.
*Here is a charming post where she suggests that the Obama administration is killing people to hide the fact that President Obama's birth certificate is a forgery.
