What is a Wing Nut?

Bob Cesca defines the irrational end of the conservative spectrum:

Wingnuts are the entrenched crazies who routinely vote against their

own best interests. People who are oblivious to their own ignorance,

contradictions and backwards worldview. They proudly consider themselves

“dittoheads” and believe President Obama is a communist Muslim

terrorist born in Kenya and that the Constitution is a religious

document. They make up their own history and reject empirical reality.

They routinely contradict themselves and when you point out their

obvious inconsistencies, they insist that your sources are part of the

liberal media cabal.

Ben Cohen is the editor and founder of The Daily Banter. He lives in Washington DC where he does podcasts, teaches Martial Arts, and tries to be a good father. He would be extremely disturbed if you took him too seriously.
