WTF is wrong with you people?!

I have just finished commenting in the umpteenth diary this primary season that cited right-wingers to make points against Obama. This phenomenon, has gone from being hillariously insane (SusanHu citing Debbie Schlussel), to just sad (witness this weekend's rally round Pat friggin' Buchannon) to downright offensive (today's diary citing accessory to war crimes Bill Kristol) to outright frightening (the citation of White Natalist site V.Dare- though this was thankfully removed after it was pointed out to the author). Frankly, the cognitive dissonacance that enables some of the Hill supporters to do this is in a way impressive; remember in many cases these are the same people who are staging a reasonably justified boycott of the Daily Kos (but feel free to turn MYDD into a hybrid of Freerepublic and Stormfront), yet I beseech that they and the more ardent Obama supporters (including myself in some cases) quit doing this; quit citing scum.
Please these are the same people (edit: the people who are being quoted not the diarists themselves) who called Hillary a lesbian and Bill a rapist, the same people who view Vince Foster's suicide as a hit, the same people who injected terms like Mena, and Travelgate into the national lexicon, and frankly accepting there smears of Obama only lends credence to those who would do us and our Republic itself, harm. In closing I would like to pose a question, do you believe the stuff they wrote in the 1990s- was Hillary a murderous lesbian who stuck by her sexual predator of a husband solely for political power; and if not why do you believe them now?
