In an apparent admission that their commentary no longer bears any relationship to news on Earth, TIME Magazine has declared that the Obama-hating right wouldn't support the president even if he was defending the country from a martian invasion.
(For now, we'll ignore the obvious fact that our country already has been invaded by aliens...and Obama took their side.)
TIME then posits the moral superiority of liberals, saying that in the event of a crisis it's inconceivable that conservatives would ever rally around Obama "like the left did (albeit briefly) after September 11, 2001 for Bush."
For the record, "albeit briefly" may be the two saddest and most accurate words printed in TIME in the past year and a half...and they speak tellingly of the left's inability to sustain the pretense of strength, patriotism, or bipartisanship for more than a few weeks, even in the face of a real life-and-death invasion.
Just for the record, TIME, we don't think conservatives would reflexively choose invading martians over Obama. They'd simply have to evaluate all of the variables, then throw their support to the side least likely to destroy our country.
Okay, okay... That would probably be the martians.
