And speaking of crap, this comes to us this morning from the most entertaining bunch of frightened little children in the Commonwealth of Virginia:
The party of crazy? One need simply respond with something like this to disprove that bit of flimsy:
The party of crazy
Roanoke Times editorial
These fringe candidates believe some crazy stuff. Rand Paul, the Republican nominee for Senate from Kentucky, doesn't think the federal government should have the right to tell private businesses they can't discriminate against black people.
Sharron Angle, running against Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in Nevada, wants to phase out Social Security and seems to think "Second Amendment remedies" are appropriate if people lose at the ballot box.
Now fringe Republicans in Delaware have nominated Christine O'Donnell, a largely unknown candidate, over moderate stalwart Michael Castle in the Senate primary in that moderate state. She has fudged her education credentials, had troubles with personal finances and, in the past, equated masturbation with adultery.
The tea party is energizing a portion of the Republican base, all right: the crazy portion. [link]
Did I mention Cindy Sheehan and Michael Moore?
'nuff said about that.
But the children at the Times do have reason to be afraid. Because we're coming after you when we take over the world. And we're going to force you to leave that safe haven of an editorial boardroom and go out and get a job for the first time in your miserable lives. At the point of a gun!
That ought to add to their paranoia.
This is too much fun.
