Today's Dispatch From The Stupid Party - Special "Duck!" Edition

Could-be Civil War re-enactor (Gen. Jubilation T. Cornpone?) and wingnut martyr du jour  Phil "Ducked Up" Robertson has been getting a lot of atta boys from large segments of the petri dish that is the Republican right these days.  Illinois Republican candidate for Congress for the 11th District Ian Bayne thinks Robertson merits a place in the pantheon of civil rights heroes:
"In December 1955, Rosa Parks took a stand against an unjust societal persecution of black people, and in December 2013, Robertson took a stand against persecution of Christians," Bayne wrote in the email. "What Parks did was courageous."
Bayne added in the email that "what Robertson did was courageous too."
"...[A] stand against the persecution of Christians."  Funny, we thought Robertson "took a stand" against the "sin" of homosexuality (with lots of graphic detail and couching it in ersatz Biblical babble).  But when you're desperate and stone stupid like Bayne and his fellow frothing cretins are, a faux persecution complex might be your last refuge.  Oh, you might also want to stop trying to appropriate legitimate heroes to prop up your run- of- the- mill homophobes and racists.  (Also:  how's that Republican/ New Confederate/ Stupid Party rebranding coming along?)

Meanwhile, Stephen Colbert has his inimitable take on the "backwoods Louisiana bird-murderer:"
