This is a short commentary since I'm writing it with a Nook typing one letter at a time... Why is everybody talking about the Republican nut-jobs, teabaggers, and the assorted racist, white supremacists, and religious crackpots that make up the right wing?

And I mean, everybody! Every Lefty website, every mainstream news media organization, every commentator, they all seem to be talking about the Republicans, nonstop, analyzing them, trying to make sense about their actions, trying to deconstruct their agenda, their motives,their thinking.

I've mentioned this in some of my previous diaries, but I really have no interest about the Republicans. Why? Because I long ago realized they were basically honest-to-goodness nut-job crazies. I realized that they were on a quest to destroy what is left of our democratic system of government; that they were nihilists, end-of-days dead-enders.

In short I came to view them the same way I would an insane person spreading feces on a wall. What is there to say?

That's why I rather focus on what the sane people are going to do in response to their feces-spreading-on-walls. What is the best course of action when dealing with these type of nut-jobs? How do you negotiate with crazy people who see the results of their own actions as a sign of the end of times? Or who think that plunging the country into a possible economic depression as a necessary slimming down?

And so, as hard as it may be, I'll continue bypassing reading anything about the latest dastardly act by these Republican cretins and instead will be watching what president Obama, and Harry Reid, and Nancy Pelosi do in response. As much as I criticize them for being overly influenced by corporatist cartels and Wall Street, at least I know for a fact they are not crazy.

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.
