In his Friday column, Eugene Robinson says "the big political story of the year may turn out to be the consequences of the GOP's foray into extremism and wackiness."


Which of the four is the wackiest? Vote:

Republicans are ALL wackos. They favor abolishing most of the federal government in favor of letting a private corporate government that is unelected and, therefore, unaccountable to anyone...except the GOP rule. If you liked the Bush years, including Ken Lay and Bernie Madoff, and a permanent state of undeclared war funded by unlimited deficits so that corporate presidents can literaly make out like bandits, then you'll love what the whackos in the GOP have in store for the U.S. next time they get into power.

The crazies are getting crazier:

Colorado Republican Dan Maes in Denver sees a U.N. "plot" in the city's bike-for-rent program.

Texas Republicans Debbie Riddle and Louie Gohmert are screaming (literally, in Gohmert's appearance on CNN) about "terror babies" born in the U.S. and taken "home" to be trained as terrorists for a sneak attack years from now.

Why is it that when these crazies are asked for evidence to support their claims, there is none? Because it's all "made up" in their crazy little minds.

It's difficult to believe that any intelligent, educated republican swallows this bunk, but they do, hook, line and sinker.

Just for fun, take a look at

There's no ambiguity about the "none" as a general selection of examples of a failure to be intelligent.

And no, the birther-by-proxy plot is not going to work.

If the candidates are out there in weirdville against talking to the press or against bikers riding bicycles or now attacking the 14th amendment it looks like republicans are in tea party hell. Right where they belong for allowing the republican base to make them act more and more foolish.

This guy is clueless. An honest answer would've been, "My party told me to be against any democratic law because???????? I don't know, I'm a freaking stupid Republican!

Given that Taxed Enough Already is this gang's premise and given that taxes overall are at about the same level as in 1950, isn't the whole party way offbase?

Want a horrible poll. Particularly the selection, "none, I like them all."

Was the intent of that selection, "none, I think they are all equally wacky" or "none, I like these candidates?"

I won't bother to vote when the selections are that ambiguous.
