Now that Republican Governor Mike Pence of Indiana signed the awful gay hate is okay because Jesus bill into law, I think he needs a sexual act, sexual condition or something sexual named after him.

Much in the same way Rick Santorum is synonymous with that frothy mix of fecal matter and lube that is the byproduct of anal sex.

Personally, I don't think simply boycotting Indiana is enough. I've been to Indiana ... no disrespect intended.

First, State of the Union insanity from the Republicans:

Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) gave the official GOP response and laid down some stunning, bald-faced lies but did it in such a boring, Mom-next-door kind of way:

  • the "trusts people to make their own decisions, not a government that decides for you" except of course when it comes to a woman's right to choose. But that goes without saying, right?
  • the GOP "helps working families rise above the limits of poverty." Except when they slash government aid and oppose raising the minimum wage.
  • the GOP "protects our most vulnerable." Except when they slash social services for the mentally ill or oppose the Violence Against Women Act or slash funding to help vets returning from Iraq or Afghanistan.

Sen. Lindsay Grahama (R-SC): "The world is literally about to blow up and our president did not really paint a fair picture of the threats we face."

Jim Garrow: Obama should be put down like a rabid dog. Nice.

Rep. Tim Huelskamp (R-KS) uses Twitter to attack Obama during SOTU then goes on Rachel Maddow's Show and goes ballistic.

Rep. Michael Grimm (R-NY) threatens reporter live on air after SOTU because reporter asked about his corruption scandal. Now nobody will ask about it for sure. Maybe it was the steroids talking. He has a history of threatening people. Grimm apologizes to reporter. Maybe that will make it go away?

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN): Obama is not a King so we'll sue him.

6 craziest reactions to Obama's SOTU speech.

Round-up of RWNJ tweeting about SOTU.

Yesterday, I noted RNC Chair Reince Priebus' solitary and failing effort to put out the raging wildfire of GOP insanity. Nearly all of today's kray kray could fall under rebranding fail. Priebus and the few Republicans who want to rebrand their party as less insane, bigoted, racist, sexist, etc. face the following behavior 365 days a year.

Rep. Steve Palazzo (R-MI) lashes out at "Gay Hollywood's version of matrimony."

RWNJ radio host Laura Ingraham: Let immigrants move to Detroit then wall it off.

4 men appear on Fox News panel to discuss the war on women. This in and of itself is not crazy. However, when the GOP's media mouthpiece is this consistently tone deaf and immune to any rebranding efforts ... that's crazy.

Bishop John Paproki of Illinois hopes that his anti-gay exorcism shows gay people who much he loves them.

Here's something else that's crazy: agreeing to give the GOP State of the Union response. Look what it did to Michele Bachmann, Marco Rubio and Bobby Jindahl.

Here's your roundup of insanity from Republicans. It's simply too cold for me to think up a witty comment to accompany my introduction.

In Virginia, signs affixed to sticks or flags on sticks are not allowed in Capitol because they are dangerous. Guns are allowed. They are **ing crazy.

Rep. Steve Stockman (R-TX) has been AWOL from Congress. He hasn't been seen in Texas, either. he blames the media. That doesn't even make sense.

Reince Priebus, the one-man fire crew fighting the raging fires of Repbulican insanity with a sippy cup full of water: Huckabee was wrong, GOP should be careful how it frames it's positions.

Kansas State Rep. Allan Rothlisberg: Women over 50 do not need gynecological care.

Today is officially International GOP Rebranding Day! Or something. Maybe every day is GOP rebranding day? Regardless, enjoy your round-up of insanity from the Republicans.

Instead of actually protecting women, House GOP plans to audit rape victims. So much for GOP re-branding.

Rep. Steve Pearce (R-NM) believes that a wife is supposed to voluntarily submit to her husband. So much for GOP re-branding.

Fox News host Andrea Tantaros makes the case that America is less free because we don't know our own history by displaying her ignorance of American history. So much for GOP rebranding.

Illinois GOP candidate Susanne Atanus believes autism and dementia are God's punishment for the growing support for marriage equality. Zoinks.

Sarah Palin uses MLK Day as an excuse to troll President Obama on race.

Wisconsin NRA is advocating treason and armed rebellion.

Here's your roundup of the right wing crazy for Friday.

Ted Nugent compares film executive Harvey Weinstein to Joseph Goebbels.

Fox News' Martha McCallum warns that another Holocaust might happen if Weinstein makes film attacking NRA. Weinstein is Jewish, BTW.

South Carolina US Senate candidate Lee Bright told a Tea Party group last August:

  • Obama Administration training IRS brown shirts
  • warned about the dangers of Muslim immigrants from terrorist nations
  • and warned of the Muslim Brotherhood invasion across our southern border.

California legislature Tim Donnelly is really quite nuts. He's running for Governor. He has ties to a terrorist group and promises to hold onto power with violence if he wins.

House Republicans want to force the IRS to audit rape victims because they get abortions.

Colorado Tea Party Republican Senate candidate Ken Buck compares pregnancy to cancer.

Sen. David Vitter (R-LA) wants the poor to show an ID to get their food. I want David Vitter to show an ID before he hires hookers.

Sorry, I skipped writing this round-up yesterday. It happens. I may have skipped a day, but the Republicans didn't skip pumping out the crazy.

NY Post's Fred Dicker: NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo "promised" to oppose strong gun laws, "but then he had a little convenient massacre that went on in Newton, CT." NY now has toughest gun laws in US.

Multnomah County (Oregon) Republicans will honor MLK and Lincoln by raffling off a rifle. No, they don't get the irony.

VA GOP Congressional candidate Dick Black thinks spousal rape shouldn't be a crime.

Dr. Greg Bannon, Republican NC US Senate candidate, believes that food stamps are slavery.

Virginia GOP lose their minds when VA Dem runs pro-choice ad.

Here's roundup of all the right wing crazy I could find.

Tony Perkins, President of the Family Research council: Girl Scouts encourage promiscuity and engage in child abuse.

The Illinois Family Institute, the state affiliate of the American Family Association, warns Notre Dame about recognizing LGBT group. Is someone going to hell?

Spurred on by satirical news reports, clueless and crazy Colorado Republicans Vicki Marbles and Lori Saine introduce bill to prevent welfare recipients from buying weed with their government money.

Gordon Klingenscmitt warns Coloradans that smoking weed can cause hallucinations which are really demonic spirits.

Local police took away RWNJ radio host Tom Bauerle's guns after he lost his mind because of sinister plot by NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo to stake out his backyard and take away his guns. Then again, maybe he's not crazy.

Enough non-Chris Christie insanity to block any bridge in America! You're daily round-up of Republican cray cray.

Okay, I lied. This is kind of about NJ Gov. Chrispie Critters more more about how absolutely bat** insane the NY Sun is: read about how the Christie controversy is really Obama's fault.

Bryan Fischer of the American Family Association freaks out over Satanic Temple on the Oklahoma State Capitol grounds. According to Fischer nobody believes in Satan. Wait? What? He does fir cryzakes!?! Don't all evangelical christianists?

Pastors Kevin Swanson and Dave Buehner wondered how cool it would be if the Rose Bowl Parade featured stoning gay people to death.

Virginia State Sen. Thomas A. Garrett introduced an emergency bill that would outlaw pretty much all sex except missionary position for the purpose of making babies. Just like it used to be in VA. Or something.

All the non-Chris Christie insanity from the Republicans that you can stand! Daily roundup of right wing insanity.

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX), aka the Stupidest Person in Congress, didn't become a congresscritter to alert the world to Terror Babies or any of the other whack-a-doodle conspiracies theories he's pushed. He had to do this to stop welfare checks for single Moms. How noble.

All you need to know about Maine's nutjob Governor Paul LePage.

Theresa Thombs, a GOP candidate for the Texas Board of Education: "we know we didn't come from monkeys."

RWNJ Jim Garrow has proof that President Obama tried to nuke Charleston, SC and other American cities.
