Latest Wingnut Outrage: Playsetgate

March 24, 2009

I realize we have more serious matters to concern ourselves with, but the wingnuts have come unhinged about a playset. Vicki went off about a supposedly $16,000 playset while claiming not to know if the Obamas or the taxpayers footed the bill.

But the Internet being a hard thing to understand, she obviously didn’t see a real news report on this swingset:

  • The set typically costs $3500, not $16,000. The exact amount was not disclosed. One might imagine that, for the publicity, the set might not even cost that much.
  • The Obamas paid for the set themselves.

Forget how the Bush administration dealt out no-bid contracts. We gotta get mad about playsets!

What’s funny is that Vicki calls out “Obama-bots” for “feeling and not thinking.” Uh huh. Carry on with your rage.
