You simply cannot make this stuff up. Republican national committee leader Pat Rogers said that New Mexico Gov. Susanna Martinez had dishonored the memory of George Armstrong Custer when her staff met with Native American tribal leaders

The state is going to hell,” Rogers, who is a member of the GOP executive committee and is currently in Tampa for the RNC convention, wrote . . .. Former Republican gubernatorial candidate Col. Allen Weh “would not have dishonored Col Custer in this manner,” he wrote.
Putting aside for the moment that the meeting between the governor and state tribal leaders is required by law, this statement is just almost beyond comment. But I'll try.

We have now reached the point where anyone can say anything. The wing nuts and the crazies feel totally liberated to say in public all the things they have been thinking for years and only talking about with like minded cretins. This is wingnuttery unbounded. There are no limits.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
