Howie Carr on Moonbats

Howie Carr is a ray of hope piercing the liberal gloom of Taxachusetts. Here he is on the term moonbat:

For those who came in late, moonbats are trust-funded, medicated, middle-aged, white-guilt-ridden blogging lefty losers who inflicted Deval Patrick upon the working people. The moonbats now yearn to elect Sen. Barack Obama, a Deval on steroids.
If you are a guy with a ponytail, chances are you're a moonbat — if you have a wide-brim leather hat too, the odds rise to 100 percent. If you're a woman and you bring knitting to public meetings, consider yourself positively ID'ed.

Other indications that you could be a moonbat include:

You've used the word "Halliburton" at least once in the last 10 minutes.
You take part in the weekly anti-war protests on the town post office with all the other grandmothers, or should I say the women who would be grandmothers if they hadn't had so many abortions 30 years ago.
You scoff at people who believe in God, but just as fervently believe that there is a "scientific consensus" about global warming.
You'd never admit that the reason you don't care about Obama's plans to tax the middle class back to the Stone Age is because your dad down in New York put all your trust funds into tax-free municipal bonds.
You have both of Barack Obama's books, and you've been meaning to get around to reading them, but…
You haven't uttered the word "Christmas" since 1983, lest you offend someone.
Forget vegetarian, you'd like to be a vegan … except for that no-ice-cream thing.

As car points out, there is no such thing as a "right-wing moonbat." The phrase is as much an oxymoron as "law-abiding illegal alien."

Words are weapons. Kudos to Carr for guarding the term moonbat, which the moonbats themselves would like to take out of their opponents' arsenal, as you can see by some of the outrageously false definitions of the term given on Urban Dictionary.

On a tip from Bergbikr.

Carr nailed the definition. Since he lives in Boston, he better hire someone to start his car for the next few months. Those "support freedom of expression" folks react badly to the truth.

You're right. I once lived in Boston. Even in the stone age (not stoner's age), it was a tad liberal..

Actually, the counterpart is "wingnut," which is a compliment. Wingnuts hold things together, they keep things in place. If you look at most globes, you'll see that wingnuts keep the Earth on its axis.

VtheK, that is... awesome, man. I'll have to rememebr that next time I'm "debating" lefties.

V the K, good one!

The comments from the moonbats on that site are pretty brutal, you can almost hear their mouths foaming!

Howie Carr does not live in Boston. He lives in Wellesley.

Hey now... I'm a guy, I have a pony tail, and am as right wing as they come.

Like Ted Nugent.

Speaking of the Nuge... too bad he's not the nominee instead of that guy pretending to be a conservative (McCain)...

I've been thinking that since the Primaries. Nugent is a real Conservative.

A liberal thinks that a piece of crap can be picked up by the clean end.

A liberal thinks that if you put sugar on crap it is not crap.
example: Obama. I rest my case

Used to live in Boston area. Yup, Howie Carr is greatness. He's a beacon of hope in a sea of liberal darkness up there. . .
