76. You're right, it's not a new direction, but they're going there with remarkable zeal
The birther thread has now passed 4,900 posts.

As for health care, yes, it's an article of faith on FR that Obama's bill is socialized medicine (hah, I wish!). The public option is a Trojan horse, aimed solely at destroying the private insurance companies and bringing all doctors under the government yoke. Federal bureaucrats will control every aspect of health care in America. People all across Canada are horrified by their socialized system.

And, of course, that's just their nutjobbery on birtherism and health care. It doesn't stop there. Obama won the election by using hundreds of millions of dollars in illegal campaign contributions from abroad. ACORN will conduct the 2010 census and will facilitate the registration to vote of millions of illegal aliens (to add to the millions who illegally voted in 2008). Fortunately for the Republic, however, Obama's popularity is plummeting. Faced with the widespread revulsion against his blatant Marxism, the Democrats themselves will impeach him, to try to save themselves from the political ruin of going down with him. The Republicans will retake Congress in 2010 and elect Sarah Palin as President in 2012. (Not everything in this paragraph is part of the Freeper orthodoxy, but each of these views is fairly common there.)

Yup, same old direction, but pedal to the metal this time.
