    lead to Virginia seceding. I do think it could lead to, or be a harbinger of, more nuts going off like the one who attacked those people in a Unitarian church. The more people express views like this, the more it validates and encourages others. And, as G2geek pointed out, coming from a candidate for office further legitimizes it.

    And, as I said, I do also see the other point, that by speaking out in such a crazy manner they are de-legitimizing themselves and demonstrating to all the sane people just how crazy they are.

    So in a way I should be happy to see them shoot themselves in the feet, but, as I said, I just can't shake the disturbing sensation. They give me the willies.

    Election went bad. Iran went to hell. Media went to bed. #twitter
