I\u00a0recently got a reader all fired up by suggesting Hillary Clinton wasn\u2019t really a liberal. Whether Sen. Clinton is a liberal or not wasn\u2019t the point of the column at all. I was actually writing about loony politicians including one out in Montana who had called Clinton \u201cthe Anti-Christ.\u201d Oh well. Since the reader started his email out suggesting I \u201c... was absolutely the most left wing editor I\u2019ve ever read.\u201d I suppose he thought I meant Ms. Clinton wasn\u2019t enough of a liberal FOR ME. Not so. I simply think she is a bit of a \u201cconvenience liberal\u201d \u2014 liberal when it suits her purpose. Same with President Obama. Despite the fact that sooooooooooo many people think he is the poster child for liberalism, I believe a careful examination of his TOTAL record would not bear that claim out. If, however, you only measure his liberalism solely on the basis of the Affordable Care Act, that\u2019s a different thing altogether. But you simply cannot, or should not do such an accounting. He certainly has been a disappointment not only to Your\u2019s Truly, but to a lot of people who held out high hopes for an enlightened Obama administration. Still, I am more often than not astonished at the degree and level of hyper-silliness and pure shineola the fringe right wingers sling at Obama and his administration. And Lord knows, there are some real kooks out there. Take for example one Rev. Austin Miles: Rev. Miles is infamous for tossing fuel on the \u201cObama wasn\u2019t born in this country\u201d fire by sagely pointing out that the president hasn\u2019t been able to prove he had a girlfriend previous to Michelle. No girlfriends! No former girlfriends have stepped forward to say what a charmer Obama was while they were going together ... or not! No girlfriends have surfaced in these United States which apparently PROVES beyond a shadow of a doubt the president was born in Kenya, or Nigeria, or ... somewhere. Not here. No girlfriends. Think about it! Then, more recently, the good reverend issued a dire warning to the people of this great nation. Obama, he said, was planning to start a race war by canceling the 2016 elections. And as if that isn\u2019t enough, the president was going to not only cancel the elections, but also to \u201c... use Executive Privilege to declare himself President for Life.\u201d Holy moly!!! Spread the word in vale and from hilltop!!! The Kenyans are coming! The Kenyans are coming! Yep. Obama\u2019s Commie, Marxist supporters are all set to \u201c... turn America into a Marxist Socialist Nation controlled by Communist Czar\u201d and had already begun the nefarious plot by stoking the fires of racism to create \u201ca new civil war\u201d and \u201ca national race riot.\u201d Obama and his pinko masters plan to generate a national crisis and use it as an excuse to cancel the next presidential elections. What I find sad isn\u2019t simply that some crazy pastor formulated this conspiracy clap, but also that thousands and thousands of Americans actually believe him and have thrown themselves into a panic \u2014 even though throughout such national crises as the Civil War, World Wars I and II, the Korean War and the Vietnam conflict there has never, ever, EVER been the cancellation of an election. And, by the way, this is not the goofiest stuff the good reverend has ever offered his followers and admirers. In the not too distant past he suggested Obama\u2019s \u201c... main goal is to promote sexual immorality by ordering the Rainbow Flag to fly over U.S. Embassies around the world, and had the Fire Department in a major city march in a Gay Pride Day parade, in uniform.\u201d (I won\u2019t bother explaining why that is simply ridiculous, but folks just drink it up!) \u201cHe has released open homosexuals, cross dressers and transsexuals into army barracks which has created numerous problems ...\u201d What!!??!! \u201cHe has declared the name of Jesus Christ illegal ...\u201d Sigh. And then ... \u201cObama still wears his ring with the inscription inside, \u201cThere is no God but Allah,\u201d which all Muslims wear to show their allegiance to Islam.\u201d OMG!!! And more ... \u201c... it was quietly revealed that Obama was indeed \u201cgay,\u201d with solid documentation showing where, when and with whom. This was immediately squashed so the public would not know.\u201d And finally ... The reverend writes \u201cI believe that Obama is the expected Anti-Christ ...\u201d Hey!!! Hold on a second!!! That\u2019s going too far! I thought Hillary was the \u201cAnti-Christ!!!\u201d This guy is loonier than Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson put together, but ... he is quoted by politicians and right leaning folks around the country pretty regularly. Oh well.
