She's been reading from the latest winger script that insists, darkly that President Obama is secretly conspiring with the Muslim Brotherhood in order to give the terrorists control of Egypt, the Middle East and ultimately, the US and Europe.
This time she's tried to distinguish herself (if you can use the word 'distinguish' in the same sentence as Tammy's name without choking) from the winger herd by calling for the impeachment of President Obama, “If it is found that Obama secretly facilitated or 'encouraged' an Islamist takeover of Egypt..." She called on Rep. Darryl Issa to help out. (he's the designated Republican witch hunter in the House, who is pledged to dog the administration with bullshit investigations).
Tammy Bruce's credentials: she's “a gay, pro-choice, gun-owning, pro-death penalty, Tea Party Independent conservative” so she's got to be fair and balanced. (the gay/pro-choice part is a big problem for Tammy- keep reading).
Where she once screeched, she now tweets: (though it's hard to tell the difference)
- “If it is found that Obama secretly facilitated or 'encouraged' an Islamist takeover of Egypt, an ally, he should be impeached.”
- “Impeachment? We have a President in up to his elbows in an Islamist takeover of Egypt while he ignores a Fed Judge order to void ObamaCare”
- “The House impeaches–if there are grounds it should be done. @DarrellIssa needs to 'immediately' determine Obama’s involvement w Egypt”
- “@DocBruceP It’s more than 'losing' Egypt, if Obama 'facilitated' the overthrow of an ally in favor of our *enemy* that’s impeachment”
She, like so many of her kind (Laura Ingraham wannabes, if you can imagine) tries every once in a while to break out of the right-wing media ghetto by saying something so outrageous it's picked up by the MSM.
This didn't make it, but it was passed like flatulance through on Floyd Brown's site, a great place, BTW, to delve into the most extreme, fact-free, right-wing exhudations.
Bruce last broke through in 2009 when she called Michelle Obama "trash."
We wrote back then:
Tammy Bruce, is a truly unpleasant, LA talker who's been trying hard of late to promote her 2nd-tier syndicated talk show. She appears frequently on such Fox News stops as Bill O'Reilly, and Sean Hannity; she'll eat the occasional kitten, and kick the occasional toddler with her nine-inch fuck-you pumps.
Her schtick is that she's a pro-choice, ex-feminist, formerly "classically liberal" (if that's not pushing the oxymoronic to the sublime) activist who saw the light and became a conservative.
She was once the president of a National Organization for Women (NOW) chapter. Now she's the go-to guy when Billo needs a feminist. Although she renounced progressive politics more than a decade ago, she's often called a "self-described liberal" by the right wing outlets on which she appears.
A reason (besides she's tonally abrasive) she's not caught-on in the right-wing world-at-small is that she self-describes as an "openly gay, pro-choice, gun owning, pro-death penalty, progressive feminist."
Her Lesbian-ness and pro-choice-itude have certainly been factors in the slow national growth of her right-wing shriek-show which has been around since 1993. These things are high among the unforgivables on the right's litmus list for acceptable positions, and lifestyles.
Tammy Bruce can call the Obamas anything she can think of, but until she's cured of that homo behavior, and renounces abortion -- to the dittoheads, she's just another colorful California talk host -- fascinating but never to make the A-list. She can count on being dismissed, discounted, and mocked behind her back by the very conservatives to whom she's trying so desperately to pander.
The graciousness, the smarts, and the national belovedness of Michelle Obama eclipses the harpings of this harpy, but maybe her nasty mouth has again got her a few appearances on the fair & balanced channel.
