News Roundup for 2/19/10

Scene of Austin plane attack
The result of whacky hijinks

-Headline of the day-
"Babbin Jokes About Norquist: I'm Glad He Didn't Fly That Plane Into An IRS Building."

Hahaha! At the Crazy People's Action Conference, Human Events editor Jed Babbin introduced fellow wingnut Grover Norquist with a really funny joke:

"And let me just say, I'm really happy to see Grover today," Babbin said. "He was getting a little testy in the past couple of weeks. And I was just really, really glad that it was not him identified as flying that airplane into the IRS building."

What, you don't get it? Norquist is an anti-IRS nut and the Austin kamikaze was an anti-IRS nut, so it could've been Grover who'd crashed a plane into that IRS building... See? Isn't that hilarious? Ok, wait.. Wait... It gets better.

Three people died! But that's OK, they worked for the IRS! Waka-waka!


What, nothing? Tough audience...

What if Babbin beat a disabled kid with a bat? (Talking Points Memo)

-Hey look, racism! What a surprise!-
Among the wingnuts at the Crazy People's Action Conference is celebrity lunatic Stephen Baldwin, fresh off his stint on I'm a Celebrity! Get ME Out of Here!

For some reason, ABC's Jonathan Karl thought someone out there might give a crap what Baldwin thinks, so he took him aside for a comment. "I am not happy about the way things are," he said. "I pray for President Obama every single day. But tell you what. Homey made his bed, now he's gotta lay in it."

Oh snap! (Raw Story, with video)

-Bonus HotD-
"Profit-Seeking Palin Reportedly Rips CPAC As A Profiteering Convention."

Hey Sarah, you're supposed to call in a bank robbery to distract the cops while you're robbing another bank, not a few weeks afterward.

Doesn't work so well this way. (Think Progress)
