Debbie Schlussel: Portrait Of A Conservative Nutjob In Heat (Imam Hassan Qazwini Edition)

Debbie Schlussel, who is sort of the K-Mart version of Ann Coulter, along with others on the right, is trying to fuel yet another attack on Sen. Obama for his meeting with Imam Hassan Qazwini, a muslim leader in Detroit. Schlussel is one of the reactionary nutjobs on the right and as soon as they see someone who isn't Christian they automatically assume that they are terrorists. So they tie themselves up in knots, and accuse Obama of meeting with the enemy or some other such nonsense.

From what sort of mind does Debbie Schlussel's accusations flow? Debbie Schlussel thought that the Virginia Tech student shootings were a terrorist attack coordinated by a "Paki", Debbie Schlussel said "we need to be very vigilant of all Muslims", and Debbie Schlussel claimed that Media Matters was funded by Nazis.

So back to Imam Hassan Qazwini. According to Schlussel, he is a secret agent of Iran. This has to be true because... well, Schlussel says so. Based on her attack on Obama, simply meeting with Qazwini is reason to suspect the loyalties of an American politician.

Well, then, it's time to arrest President Bush.

Here is George W. Bush at an event with Qazwini in April of 2003 in Dearborn, Michigan:

And even more damning, here's Bush giving Qazwini a kiss on the cheek:

Using the logic of absolute morons like Debbie Schlussel, we can only surmise that President Bush is a secret agent of Iran who wants to force us to gay marry while converting to Sharia law.

Qazwini also recently met with Pope Benedict.

Debbie Schlussel is a mainstream voice on the right. What she says, many of them believe. This is why the rest of us in the real world cannot have a rational conversation with these people.
