CNN does a story about anti-Obama "PUMAs" and quotes Webster Tarpley in all seriousness...

...Kim Mann said she thinks that Obama is too liberal. Webster Tarpley said the senator from Illinois is too conservative. But Mann, a 52-year-old project manager from Manassas, Virginia, and Tarpley, a self-described 62-year-old "controversial author," agree on one thing: Neither wants Obama to be the Democratic nominee.

... Tarpley said he would turn his gaze towards Green Party nominee Cynthia McKinney, Libertarian Party nominee Bob Barr or independent candidate Ralph Nader.

Tarpley said a McCain victory might be the best result if Obama is the Democratic nominee. It would allow the party an opportunity to reflect and perhaps "radicalize it in a New Deal direction." ...

...without noting that Tarpley is a LaRouchenik and a 9/11 truther who thinks Obama is a puppet of the Trilateral Commission and "the candidate of the U.S. intelligence community," Obama apparently having been recruited by The Conspiracy in his "lost years where nobody knows anything about what he was doing, we're not even sure where he was. 1981, 1982, 1983 his last two years in college," all of which Tarpley recounts in his new book, Obama: The Postmodern Coup: Making of a Manchurian Candidate, the cover of which pairs a photo of Obama waving and a photo of Mussolini giving a fascist salute.

Hey, CNN -- there's a guy outside my building who's wrapped in tinfoil and claiming space aliens are communicating with him through his fillings. Maybe you want to interview him next about the election.

UPDATE: OK, I have to post this, er, tribute to the PUMAs, from Rumproast, bookended by the worst rap ever and the longest autoharp jam in human history, with some creamy white racism in the middle:

Yowza. These people really are nuts. And Mother Maybelle Carter is rising up from the dead as we speak to kick the autoharp woman's ass.
