    though I don't agree with him politically. It's long past time for the sane Republicans to get the crazies like Cruz the hell out of that party. If the GOP wants to survive, they are going to have to go after the tea party terrorists and nuts. Of course, King is in a safe reasonable district, so he doesn't have to worry about a rabid right wing primary opponent. The GOP moderates better watch out - if not, they are going to end up the way Germany's "Social Democrats" did in the 1930's. The "moderate" German politicians thought they could "contain" Hitler and even use him for their purposes - instead he used them, out maneuvered them, and took over control of the German government. You can never underestimate a crazy person. I think Democrats should aid in this process - let's primary as many of the tea party terrorists as possible. If possible, in states that allow open primary voting, Democrats should register as independent or Republican to vote in Republican primaries, and vote for the non-tea party GOP candidate, then vote for the Democrat in the general election (and switch registration back to Democrat after the election).
