Just when you thought it was flat-out impossible for the Teabaggers to descend any further into the maelstrom of spittle-flecked craziness, they come up with something that makes you face-palm so hard, the back of your head falls off.

According to TPM, Tea Party Unity leader Rick Scarborough suggested Friday that the loons should emulate campaigns against Big Tobacco and file a “class action lawsuit” against homosexuality.

The far-right pastor was responding to fellow tea partier and president of Americans for Truth Peter LaBarbera, who was arguing that Fox News should tell more "stories of happy men and women who have left the homosexual lifestyle" in the same way they highlight black conservatives.

"Peter, the whole issue of a class action lawsuit, you and I have talked about this a little bit," Scarborough said. "I just wonder if you’ve explored that, talked to anyone about it..."

Predictably, Scarborough's fellow genius was on board with this very sensible and totally workable idea because...FREEDOMZJESUSBENGHAZI...or something:
"Yeah I think that’s great," LaBarbera responded. "I would love to see it. We always wanted to see one of the kid in high school who was counseled by the official school counselor to just be gay, then he comes down with HIV. But we never really got the client for that."
Not one client? Really? Like...nevah, EVAH? Dude, how do you explain that? Must be a librul, lamestream media conspiracy, huh?

Keep channeling the crazy, boys; most of America hates your guts already. And the ones who don't? Well, they just haven't met you yet.

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.
