James Moore, nutjob of the day

James Moore, Color-coded Hillary Alerts, at Huffington Post, March 11, 2008, 07:12 PM EST. Opening graf:

If anyone has paid acutely painful attention to the political ministrations of Karl Rove over the past two and a half decades, it's me. And if there is anyone qualified to make comparisons between democracy's Darth Vader and Hillary Clinton, I stand at the head of that line, as well. And sadly, the similarities are so brutally obvious as to be disturbing.

And it gets worse.

I won't dignify this nutjob with a link so if you want to read the entire nutcase, go visit Huffpost and look the column up. Sorry, but Google works well with the info I've provided above.

Moore quoted Harvard professor Orlando Patterson's flight of fancy in the NYTimes, whose disturbed mind unbelievably imagined a racist subtext in Hillary's "3:00 A.M." ad. Bob Somerby of The Daily Howler completely decimated Patterson's contention.

Love this from Somerby: "How big a dumb-ass is Patterson?"

My guess: As big as James Moore.
