Dispatches from the Creation Wars

Imagine being so far out on the lunatic fringe that you think the Worldnutdaily isn’t crazy enough. No, don’t imagine it – just read the letters they get from readers. Reading the letters to the editor of the Worldnutdaily is truly enlightening. It’s a constant struggle for dominance between stupidity and insanity. And once in a while you find one that even goes beyond that site’s normal ratio of nuttiness. Like the first one, which takes the fake news outlet to task for — get this — referring to Obama as president:

Barack Obama is not president of the United States. He even lost his “president elect” status on Jan. 20, 2009. He is not “president” of anything.

Neither you nor I have any reason to think that Obama is, was, or ever could be “president.” Additionally, we have many reasons to explain that he neither was nor could ever be “president.”

Every question of eligibility is answered with, “No, Obama never proved his eligibility.”

No federal judge has declared, announced, or explained that Obama has, whether openly or secretly, met the qualifications stated by the Constitution…

The person, Barack, can be addressed with the same respect as any other federal criminal, “Mr. …” or “Barack Obama.”

Can you and would you please explain your reasoning?

Your other work is excellent; yet, your precariously calling Barack “president” stands out like an ugly skyscraper in a field of grain and smells of tyranny, usurpation and death every time I hear it.

And then there’s this one, which endorses a Bachmann/Palin ticket in 2012:

I hope Bachmann and Palin are on the ticket in 2012. I’d vote for either one of them in a heartbeat.

As for the communist/socialist libs, you can always tell how much they are scared of someone by how hard they attack them – another Saul Alinsky strategy.

Right. And the fact that the right is attacking Obama with a ferocity, and with the most ridiculous lies, proves…..what? This is projectile ironing.

Another gem:

I believe that you should recommend that everyone rent the movie, “Soylent Green” (1973) starring Charlton Heston, Leigh Taylor-Young and Joseph Cotton. This movie is a very depressing commentary on where government health care can lead. Everyone in America should watch this movie; it might wake a few people up.

But this one is my absolute favorite:

You know, the lawyers and academics that just happen to be running our country ought to think about whom they are messing with. Football fans, NASCAR types, deer hunters, rednecks, honkey tonk bar associations (thanks Garth Brooks) and just common Constitution-loving Americans outnumber them about 150,000 to one. In my opinion, it would be a wise thing for them to get “religion” quickly, or just resign, before these people get really ticked!

Yee haw!

    OK…if we’re going to talk about dystopian future tales…remember that most of what you’ve been talking about came from books or stories first. Soylent Green was sort of Make Room, Make Room! by Harry Harrison. Someone already noted that A Boy and His Dog came from a Harlan Ellison story. Logan’s Run started as a novel of the same name by William F. Nolan. If you want to read a really great one, try Stand on Zanzibar by John Brunner.
