“The Bird” hits the big time.

Our old mate Graeme Bird has Joined a distinguished list of Rightwingers, including Ace, Hugh Hewitt, NR’s Jonah Goldberg, Michelle Malkin, and World Net Daily’s Vox Day, as a Nominee for the 2008 Golden Winger Awards for Excellence in Wingnuttery.

 Graeme’s nomination is for the prestigious Purple Teardrop with Clutched Pearls Cluster – for enduring the cruelest butthurt for his article “Cabin Fever,” which they list as “Americans Embrace Irrationalism.” The reason for the change of title is not clear. 

 From Hullabaloo:

 Purple Teardrop with Clutched Pearls Cluster – for enduring the cruelest butthurt

 1. Jonah Goldberg, “The White Man is the Jew of Liberal Fascism“

2. Michelle Malkin, “John McCain won’t return my calls!“

3. Michael Gerson, “Al Franken used bad words!“

4. KJ Lopez, On Republican Political Correctness

5. Libertarian Republican, “The Day America Died“

6. Jeffrey Scott Shapiro, “The Treatment of Bush Has Been A Disgrace“

7. Graeme Bird, “Americans Embrace Irrationalism“

8. Nice Doggie, “Wake Up, White People!“

9. Vox Day, “Welcome to the USSA”

 Hullabaloo and Poorman are two longstanding liberal websites who do this annually and for ‘The Bird’ to be included with the likes of Malkin, Hewitt, WND, and Goldberg, is definitely a sign that he is getting noticed, although some of the nominees are from the left, such as demented moonbat Andrew Sullivan.

You can cast your vote for him at Poorman.net.

    Bird frequently changes the titles of his posts. i suspect they found his post when it was called under the earlier name

  2. My purpose in writing this post was to provide an amusing insight into the antics of the left. The original was going to mention another site that I visit and post on occasionally. In checking I found Graeme’s nomination and as he is better known to us, I went with that.

    Interestingly on checking a number of those posts that were mentioned I found his to be one of the more rational.

    In the interests of fairness I would point out that Graeme is moderated and should not be attacked here as he is unable to respond. There is a pingback on his post and anyone who has issues with him should take the matter up over there where he can answer.

    I do not want this to be interpreted as a slap at him.
