Conservative Hit List

Conservapedia is down at the moment. I don’t know if it is a technical glitch or if they are closing up shop.  If by chance they were hacked as Liberal Values was earlier today I wish them well in fighting the hackers. On the other hand, if they decided that what they were writing was just to ridiculous to continue with, I fully agree. If the Secret Service shut them down for advocating assassination of Senators, they would have a strong case. Wonkette grabbed the screen above, which reads:

The Constitution provides that if a senator is unable to complete his or her term then the governor of the state will appoint a replacement Senator. Below is a list of Senate Democrats from States with Republican Governors. Currently the Democrats hold a 58 seat majority in the Senate. If these Senators were unable to complete their terms and were replaced by qualified Republicans by their Republican governors, the Republican Party would regain a commanding majority in the Senate sufficient to prevent Barack Hussein Obama from socializing medicine, nationalizing the financial and auto industries, and creating a socialist wealth redistribution scheme.

Their hit list follows.

Is this real or a parody?  We report, you decide.

The problem with conservative sites is that they write so many things which are off the wall that it is difficult to differentiate between real conservative writing and someone making fun of conservative writing. Tony Sidaway tries to sort it out. He earlier had arguments which seemed to show this was a real article, but has subsequently backed away from this.

    I am not sure how many of the above states grant the governor power to appoint or require special elections. They might need to hash those details out before proceeding with their plan of attack. Wait a second, if they hashed the details out before they attacked, they may cease to be Republicans. Interesting…

    It was a parody–the guy who did it admitted to it on rationalwiki.com. 

    However, it sat on Conservapedia for several days.  Given their sysops’ paranoid scrutiny of all new articles and the site’s low traffic, one has to assume it was read and found satisfactory.
