There's nothing like a terminally earnest, hyper-self-righteous wingnut going over the edge into self-parody. I came across this little nugget being advertised on the Nation's webpage.

A tale of terror set in the 4th term of President George W. Bush. Talk about subtle--not satisfied with ripping off 1984 by naming his main character Winston, the author decides he needs to make sure he gets his point across by putting Orwellian right in the title. No fever-swamp here, pal. (Note: the author is a 'he', despite the pen name Dawn Blair).

Check out this link for some excerpts, including the re-drafted Constitution adopted in 2009, after the U.S. has been renamed to God's United States. My personal favorite is this line:

Preamble: We the people of God’s United States, in order to provide for the common defense, in balance with the blessings of liberty and our position as the Freest Country on Earth ™, do ordain the replacement of the Amendments of the Constitution of the United States of America,...

Yep--we trademarked a national slogan. I didn't read on to see if the trademark belongs to Halliburton or a resurrected Enron led by a zombified Ken Lay brought back to life by secret stem-cell research (conducted only in underground bunkers where neo-con scientists developed cures for Parkinson's, AIDS, etc., but have kept them from the public until they can be weaponized against the Muslim Other)...

OK--I'm going to stop there. It's too easy, too much fun, and I've got other things to do today.
