It's not just the national playas in the new radicalized Republican Party that are freakin' nuts. The wingiest of wingnuts are deep on the bench too. Case in point: Pennsylvania State Rep. Daryl Metcalfe, outraged at the nationwide tour undertaken by Operation Free, a coalition of Iraq and Afghanistan vets taking a stand for clean energy:
"As a veteran, I believe that any veteran lending their name, to promote the leftist propaganda of global warming and climate change, in an effort to control more of the wealth created in our economy, through cap and tax type policies, all in the name of national security, is a traitor to the oath he or she took to defend the Constitution of our great nation!" Mr. Metcalfe’s email reads. "Remember Benedict Arnold before giving credibility to a veteran who uses their service as a means to promote a leftist agenda. Drill Baby Drill!!!"
What are the odds Metcalfe will have his own radio show, become a commentator for Fox News or have his own column at World Net Daily before the year is up? I tell you, it's loons all the way down.
