The Gerald Walpin inspector general firing is the latest conservative fake scandal to bite the big one. Why? Because like all the other accusations from the right – secret muslim, birth certificate, poor people caused the meltdown, republican car dealers getting shut down – there’s no “there” there. The conservative blogosphere really wants to be taken seriously but beyond the stale 5 year old fumes of the Dan Rather memos, they’ve got nothing – not even the Schiavo memo.
The Republican party is still tied into its top-down structure and seems uninterested at best in listening to them, and their most ravenous elements can’t help but to beat themselves into a frenzy over non-scandals that they hype to the moon.
