    The current incarnation of the "right" and the Republican Party defies anything in my memory anyway.

    They are literally crazy, and it shows in the people they send to DC.

    •  You're seeing one of the founding groups (1+ / 0-)

      of the Republican party.  In this case, Birchers run amuck.

      But the founding elements were Know-Nothings, Free Soilers, left-over Whigs, Corporatists, Federalists, Christianists, and more recently Unreconstructed Southerners.

      The wheels are coming off the bus, so to speak, and the passengers are all going their own respective ways.  The Birchers had a good run of it in 2010 (and in '08 -- thank Palin), and certain elements are hoping for more of same.

      Money has greatly helped them in the interim - without Citizens United, 2010 would have been much, much different.

      Happy little moron, Lucky little man.
