Take a look at the modern vast right-wing conspiracy. Blacks, seniors, Asians, gays, Jews, women, Italians, Canadians, even Australians are represented. And not an affirmative-action hire among them.

UPDATE. The cards foretell of Yobbo love.

They're guilty of "assaulting the New Deal". I suppose that might piss me off too - if this was 1934.

The only thing missing from the deck is the monacled pig dressed in a tuxedo, dancing merrily and feeding at a trough labelled "oil trust".

They forgot Powell!

Tim, you forgot to mention Arabs and muslims are represented: Ahmed Chalabi.

That's a disgrace that no bloggers are mentioned.

Andrew Sullivan is there, though he's not purely a blogger.

If I were William Rehnquist or Clarence Thomas, I'd be angry not to be on the list. I mean, Scalia's there, but not the Chief Justice? And Thomas's exclusion smacks of discrimination.

Even the handicapped are welcome in the Big Right Wing Tent of Diverse Wonder! As we all know, our strength is in our diversity!

Throwing back the curtain and showing the purportedly anti-gay, anti-black, anti-Muslim, anti-Everything "right wing" as a party of inclusion and diversity is probably not something they had banked on.

Oh well. More power to 'em.

RE: It's Helter-Skelter...

...all over again.

They couldn't even organize the deck so that the suits made sense. At least in the Deck o' Weasels one suit was the politicians, one was the news media, one was the Hollywood 'elite' and the other was the international 'statesmen'.

These clowns couldn't even organize their own socks.

No wonder the Left is in disarray.

Tucker Carlson is way too high, Rush Limbaugh way, way, way too low.

Hey, they're "native Americans" too. Though for my part I prefer my old first sargeant's words, "Highly motivated part-hawaiian aboriginal type lad."

I'm with the Yobbo! This deck rules merely for the fact that it has alterted me to the existence of Michelle Malkin!

This tin-foil hat stuff is just too good. Or maybe its just another Rove machination.

Think about it for a moment: the U.S. military produces a deck of playing cards to identify in a highly memorable manner some nasty folks who conspired to loot Iraq and to kill and torture its inhabitants. This conspiracy was formerly known as the Baath Party.

Now, some tin-foil hatter produces a deck of playing cards to identify in a now slightly-used-up way some nasty folks who are:

"Looting Social Security trust funds
Taking the country to war under false pretenses
Ripping up the safety net
Eviscerating democracy
Strangling civil rights..."
Yada, yada, yada....

Obviously, this is a conspiracy as well. This conspiracy is known as ____________?

Please fill in the blank.

Here's my suggestion: the Stonecutters.

Do you think they have a secret handshake? If they do, I'll bet it's way cool....
