We’ve been watching as the Republican Party has been losing its collective mind. With the merger of the Tea Party and the GOP, we’re seeing more and more of the nuts getting the GOP nomination in prominent Senate, House and Governor races.
That’s emboldening the nuts in the GOP who already hold office. The latest case is GOP Representative Louie Gohmert and his “terror baby” allegations. Watch as Anderson Cooper gives him a forum and helps him make a fool of himself.
The America I know and love is not one in which my parents or my baby with Down Syndrome will have to stand in front of Obama’s “death panel” so his bureaucrats can decide, based on a subjective judgment of their “level of productivity in society,” whether they are worthy of health care. Such a system is downright evil.
This is what the right in America has come to, which shouldn’t be a surprise when one celebrates ignorance and mediocrity.
The wingnuts on the right have been worshipping Ronald Reagan for years, and now they have a new patron saint – Sarah Palin. Yes, the “disasta from Alaska” will probably remain in the hearts of conservatives for years. They might even be dumb enough to nominate her for president.
In the meantime, the super-far-right Newsmax has introduced the 2009 Sarah Palin Calendar. Naturally, she’s holding a gun in the cover shot. They’re promoting this like crazy, sending out emails with the title: “Hot Sarah Palin Calendar Just Released.”
