Stephen Colbert foretells likely wingnut response to Obama’s current spate of problems
Political satirist Stephen Colbert, who’s made a career of parodying right-wing pundits, SAID something last night that probably presages the reaction among some righties to the IRS scandal that now bedevils the Obama administration:
“This proves that everything I’ve ever said about Obama is true,” he explained. “It’s official: He’s a secret Muslim, shape-shifting alien from Kenya, coming for our guns. And Bo [the Obama family dog] is a member of the Illuminati.”
Colbert has hit upon perhaps the one bright spot in the current political besiegement of the Obama administration: It will embolden kooks everywhere — from Birthers to those who see the president as the antichrist and all the seedy specimens in between — to claim that their wacky theories have been validated.
