Young Asshats for Freedumb

To those who remember the varnished hair, viciousness toward the poor, clownishly excessive man-makeup, empty platitudes and ever-pervasive undercurrent of dread of nuclear annihilation that was the era of President Alzheimer, the glaze-eyed website fawning of the laughably misnamed "Young Americans for Freedom" is an exercise in credulity strain. Read on:

Ronald Reagan and YAF became inextricably intertwined after he gave "The Speech" on national television in support of Barry Goldwater's 1964 presidential candidacy....
Turns out the YAF weren't so "inextricably intertwined" with said dead brain meltee after all, as, sadly, they weren't buried with him.

But bad writing and sophomoric hyperbole aside, these young brownshirts have serious delusions about what transpired in the era of Donald Rumsfeld's gifts of gaseous gangrene, anthrax, botulism, cholera and numerous other bacterialogical and convential WMDs to Saddam Hussein; the era in which crazed right wingers such as John Poindexter, Elliot Abrams, Otto Reich, John Negroponte and Rogelio Pardo-Maurer (all of whom serve prominently within the current "Administration" [sic]) secretly sent 1,500 missiles to state enemy Iran, then secretly funneled the money to a particularly brutal band of guerrillas bent on overthrowing the Nicaraguan government.

But try telling the truth to these empathy-challenged warpiglets:

President Reagan's achievements speak for themselves. Reagan brought about the end of the communist enslavement in Europe, reestablished ...America's strong national defense, reignited ...America's economic engine through laissez-faire economics, and made the Republican Party a conservative party.
Funny, those of us paying closer attention distinctly remember it being a wonder-inducing accomplishment when said dodderhead managed to show up at a podium with his pants on.

But I digress; the point of today's spite-filled rant is to introduce a fresh spamlist to those of you of a mind to stir up a little trouble. Below are email addresses for the officers and every chapter of the College Republicans and YAF. For maximum effect, be sure to enable the "BCC" or "Blind Carbon Copy" feature of your email program, usually found under the View-Options menu. Since they claim to be such avid supporters of the invasion and occupation of Iraq, encourage a little constructive cognitive dissonance by inviting them to serve and questioning their courage in failing to have done so .

Any amount of soul-searching that can be induced among the fledging damned legions of Mammon can only be a good thing.

For inspiration, check out Operation Yellow Elephant or our own Golden Chickenhawk award, which you are encouraged to distribute to loud-mouthed armchair warriors everywhere.
