And finally…

In case you hadn’t heard, since we have a ‘special’ Weekly Rewind appearing tomorrow, we decided to branch our CTotW to a separate post… and here it is.

Our search for tool of the week was, once again, a massive undertaking following President-elect Obama’s landslide victory Tuesday… but after scouring the intertubes, we found 2 equally deserving winners: Glenn Beck and Robert Novak.

First, Beck. On the same day that right-wing blog Red State launched “Project Leper,” in an attempt to professionally punish McCain staffers that, according to Red State’s Erick Erickson, wronged Gov. Palin (wronged? What the hell is this, the old west?), Erikson told Glenn Beck that she was “the best thing that happened” to the McCain campaign, to which Beck agreed, saying many conservatives told him they supported McCain in hopes he would die in office and elevate Palin into the presidency.

Shows you how stupid and partisan-blind these people are… hoping that Palin, THE most unqualified person to run for VP, would become president is not only an insult to the citizens of this country, but would have been extremely dangerous. But here these two are, hoping that she would have become president just because she’s a conservative’s wetdream come true.

The second CTOTW is none other than eternal putz Robert “Whack ‘em” Novak.

We knew, whatever the margin of victory was Tuesday, that conservatives would be spinning their wheels to maintain the illusion that it was as large victory as common sense says.

One such putz is right-wing pundit, and crappy driver, Robert Novak.

Back in 2004 when “President” Bush inexplicably won re-election and spoke of his so-called “political capital”, Novak couldn’t wait to get down on his knees to christen Bush’s victory as proof of a conservative mandate. When asked in a CNN interview if 51% of the vote was really a mandate, Novak replied “Of course it is. It’s a 3.5 million vote margin.”

So color people confused when Novak says that President-elect Obama’s popular vote margin of 7,401,289 (which is MORE than twice Bush’s 04 vote margin) and his staggering electoral vote margin (63 more than Bush ’04) does NOT make a mandate.

That’s right, you heard me… it DOESN’T make a mandate… ostensibly because that would require Novak using his own brain and NOT following the other lemmings off the gop cliff.

And because of their hate-mongering and their inability to accept reality respectively, Beck and Novak are our conservative Tools… of the Week.
