The Wingnut Hatemongering Anti-America Machine (WHAAM!) is sick but very much alive.
WHAAM!-o #1, from Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee
BeliefNet Question: "Is it your goal to bring the Constitution into strict conformity with the Bible? Some people would consider that a kind of dangerous undertaking, particularly given the variety of biblical interpretations."
Rev. Huckabee: "Well, I don't think that's a radical view to say we're going to affirm marriage. I think the radical view is to say that we're going to change the definition of marriage so that it can mean two men, two women, a man and three women, a man and a child, a man and animal." - 'The Lord truly gave me wisdom'
WHAAM!-o #2, from Faux Noose's John Gibson
Opening his radio show with funeral music yesterday, Fox News host John Gibson callously mocked the death of actor Heath Ledger, calling him a "weirdo" with a "serious drug problem."
Playing an audio clip of the iconic quote, "I wish I knew how to quit you" from Ledger's gay romance movie Brokeback Mountain, Gibson disdainfully quipped, "Well, he found out how to quit you."
Laughing, Gibson then played another clip from Brokeback Mountain in which Ledger said, "We're dead," followed by his own, mocking "We're dead" before playing the clip again.
And it goes downhill from there: John Gibson mocks 'weirdo' Heath Ledger's death
WHAAM!-o #3, from Westboro Baptist Church
"WBC will picket this pervert's funeral, in religious protest.
"God hates the sordid, tacky bucket of slime seasoned with vomit known as Brokeback Mountain - and He hates all persons having anything to whatsoever to do with it.
"Heath Ledger is now in Hell, and has begun serving his eternal sentence there." - Hate group to picket Ledger's funeral
