What do the three folks pictured above all have in common? Bingo … they are all batsh*t crazy! Now imagine our Congress and Governor’s mansions occupied by carbon copies of these lunatics. Could never happen in America you say. Well, if the November elections go the way conservatives want them to, you would be wrong. Ignore for the moment the policy related insanity of Rand Paul who questions civil rights legislation, or Sharron Angle who thinks “2nd Amendment” solutions to our problems might be on the way. In 2010, they are the sane ones.
Last night Rachel Maddow featured a segment that if it were not so side-splittingly funny would have been truly horrific. These four candidates are either just plain silly or suffer from dangerous delusions of grandeur. Either way you slice it, they’re unfit for office.
- Christine O’Donnell, GOP candidate for Senator from Delaware claims that her participation in various social advocacy groups gave her access to classified information that warns of China’s secret plan to take over the US. We shouldn’t be fooled by any friendly gestures. They all have ulterior motives!
- Carl “I’ll take you out” Paladino claims he was used as a hostage negotiator at Kent State in the 70’s. Carl is running for New York State Governor.
- Dan Maes, the GOP candidate for Governor of Colorado, says he was a mole for the Kansas Bureau of Investigation. Guess what? He wasn’t.
- Florida GOP Congressional candidate Allen West claims his army security access was higher than that of the President of the United States. If they’re telling stuff to Allen that they’re not sharing with the Commander-in-Chief, we should be afraid …. very afraid!
It is not liberal snobbery to say we have a dumbed down electorate. We are not talking about primaries here folks. We are talking about people who are one election away from running their respective states or running our country. Can conservatives be so disgusted with the current state of affairs that they would turn to just anyone as an alternative?
In another month, we shall see who prevails. In the meantime, I give you the GOP candidate for US Senator from the great state of Connecticut, a woman seen on video kicking a man in the crotch in front of a screaming audience: the one and only Linda McMahon.
