Republicans keep spewing the koo koo so hard and so fast that not even a polar vortex slows them down.

Glenn Beck twofer: we get our laws from Moses and climate change is the biggest theft in the history of the world.

Bill O'Reilly compares pot use to Russian Roulette.

The psychologically unstable, soon-to-be former Police Chief of Scranton, PA Mark Kessler sues so that his termination hearing won't be moved to another county where they can provide adequate security when his gun-toting friends show up. This guy is seriously nuts.

Mississippi State Sen. Chris McDaniel blames hip hop for gun violence.

Here's all the Republican crazy I could find from yesterday.

The Daily Caller tried to attack the NY Time's Benghazi debunking. They utterly failed. They cited a satirical piece in attacking the reporter who wrote the piece.

Karl Rove doesn't think raising the minimum wage will affect many Americans and says that calls for raising it are just a distraction from Obamacare.

Donald Trump calls climate change a hoax.

Fox News is convinced, and is trying to convince everyone, that President Obama some nuns out of business. Or something. It's so far from the truth that it's crazy.

Nebraska US Senate candidate Ben Sasse proposes to move the US Capitol to Nebraska. No, really. He says it will solve the gridlock.

The Bulletins from the Asylum is back from winter break. Republican crazy didn't take a break, though. So finding the crazy was like going ice fishing in the freezers at grocery store.

Remember Rep. Michele Bachmann's fight to save the incandescent light bulb? She wanted freedom of choice. For women. Who want to buy light bulbs. Anyway, federal efficiency standards went into effect with the New Year and no Tea Party Republicans protested.

Sen. Ted "Calgary" Cruz (R-TX) has a solution to his born-in-Canada problem: reject his Canadian-ness. That'll go well, I'm sure.

Gun nuts want to protect the rights of the mentally ill to own guns.

Utah bigots call for an uprising to stop Teh Gayz. These bigots just happen to be sheriffs.

RWNJ goes on hunger strike to convince the people of Utah to oppose gay marriage.

Mitt Romney confident that if he could get a 2012 do-over, he wouldn't suck nearly so bad.

Today all the right wing reaction to the Duck Dynasty kerfluffle that you can stomach. For the safety of your stomach, it's all below the splash of spilled orange duck sauce.

Former MA Republican Sen. Scott Brown actually did encounter armed protesters when he attended a fundraiser in New Hampshire.

Right wing pundit Peggy Noonan hates flying. Don't we all. But she flies first class because we're all disease-ridden, filthy poor people. Or something.

Glenn Beck: NJ Gov. Chris Christie is a big, fat nightmare. No, Glenn, tell us how you really feel?

Florida Gov. Rick Scott is so gung-ho about pushing his ALEC-inspired, draconian, far-right agenda that he personally is getting blamed for the deaths of 40 kids in his state. This is more psychotically crazy.

Georgia US Senate candidate Rep. Jack Kingston wants us to believe that his comments about poor kids sweeping the floors for their lunch wasn't targeted at a specific income group.

Ohio survivalist used the store he owned in a mall as his weapons cache.

WTF? Buzzfeed declares Paul Ryan a champion of the poor. Face meet palm.

Duck Dynasty guy is racist and ignorant, too. I'm sure you're surprised. He said that black people were happy before civil rights times.

As promised, all the Duck Dynasty reactions from the RWNJs that you can stomach:

Christmas is nearly upon us and the unrelenting insanity from the American Taliban is non-stop. I'm still compiling all of the crazy reactions to the Duck Dynasty homophobic, racist crud so that'll be tomorrow (I don't think the reaction to their suspensions are anywhere near done).

Rick Santorum explains Obamacare. It's crazy, it's fetid, don't miss out.

Rep. Jack Kingston (R-GA) thinks poor kids should sweep the floors in exchange for lunch. Apparently, this is not satire.

Jon Stewart examines how insane the Tea Party has become. Wait. They've gotten crazier? Is that possible?

The drama surrounding part African-American, 100% White Supremacist and 200% loonie Craig Cobb takes a step further into Bizarro Universe. Cobb is trying to take over a small ND town. The girlfriend of one of his followers is trying to get an restraining order against one of the town's council members. She accuses him of being a voyeur.

All the right wing crazy I could find for today, December 18, 2013.

Fox News displayed a 'Happy Holidays' message. Why do they hate Christmas? Will Bill O'Reilly attack them for the leftist anti-christian tendencies?

Mitch McConnell prepared to allow GOP to shoot itself in the foot again over the debt ceiling. It went so well for them last time.

Rep. Brad Wenstrup (R-OH) appeared on CNBC to discuss the GOP alternative to Obamacare. Only problem is Wenstrup had no clue about what was in it.

Toronto's foul-mouthed, racist, homophobic, drunken, drug-crazed Mayor dances. Yeah, it's bad.

Is Liz Cheney some kind of bizarro, surrealist parody?

The holidays must be getting the Republicans in the mood: for crazy! Here's all the lunacy from the right that I could find for today.

Bob Ruho is not backing down from comparing Obamacare to Nazis, socialists and terrorists. Keep digging, Bob, keep digging.

Pat Buchanan has a mancrush on Vladimir Putin for his opposition to gay rights. It's Patty B, so it was unhinged.

Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) urges witness at Obamacare witch hunt hearing to watch Fox News so that he knows all the facts.

Rep. Sean Duffy (R-WI) admits something the rest of us have known for years, GOP messaging sucks and they come off as "Neanderthals." Welcome to reality, Sean.

Mike Huckabee will launch something called the Huckabee Post next year. Will posts at it be called "huckleberries?"

Remember how New Hampshire GOP activist threatened armed insurrection if Scott Brown moves to NH and runs for US Senate? Well, a right wing super PAC wants Brown to run. I'll pop the popcorn.

Republicans seemed to go a bit more bonkers than usual this weekend. Here's my round-up of all the crazy I could find from them.

NC State Senator Bob Rucho tweets that Obamacare worse than Nazis, Soviets and terrorists combined.

Rep. Mike Johanns (R-NE) compares confirming Obama judges to protecting slavery.

Gun nut Larry Pratt: gun free zones are murder magnets.

Ann Coulter opened her mouth. Words came out. Those words were totally bazonkly (I just made that word up).

Here's all the scary Friday the 13th bat** crazy from the Republicans that I could find. And, yes, they are as crazy scary as they sound.

The Director of Hawaii's Dept of Health died in a tragic plane crash. Since she's the one who verified President Obama's birth certificate, conservatives are using her death as fodder for a new birther conspiracy theory.

The Health and Human Services Dept declined to turn over security information about healthcare.gov to Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) because they don't trust him with any of it's secret. Issa's committee has had security breaches of its own relating to Libya, his discredited "Fast and Furious" investigation and TSA documents. Details here.

Calgary Ted Cruz is probably running for President in 2016. This guarantees the Republican primaries will be crazy.

Sarah Palin has her own coin. No, seriously.

Here's all kooky lookie behavior from Republicans I could find for today.

Here's a comprehensive guide to conservatives' reaction to Nelson Mandela's death. Much of it is bat** crazy.

In Michigan, Republicans passed a law that if a woman gets raped and wants to end the ensuing pregnancy, she must have already taken out insurance against rape.

Two Minnesotans make the list today:

  • State Legislator Duane Quam demands that MNSure (MN's Obamacare site) employees get background checks. Except they already do. Quam is the type of Republican that never let's any facts get in his way.
  • Fiscal hawk Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) has an idea on how to attract people to the GOP: give all parents a check for $10,000. Her stupid hurts, but it won't for all that long because she's retiring.

Fox News' Sean Hannity makes ** up about gun violence.

Teg Nugent said some stuff about Sandy Hook Massacre. It was crazy. I know you're surprised.

Write for Rupert Murdoch's NY Post, Andrea Peyser, write that hormone-ravaged frat boy Barack Obama flirts with Danish Hellcat while Michelle Obama glowered nearby. Except it didn't happen that way. At all.

There wasn't all that much crazy yesterday from the Republicans so I saved it and mulched it in with today's steaming pile. Enjoy! But in moderation!

Here's some analysis on the GOP lunacy and some perspective on what we might perceive as retrospection by those on the right.

Rupert Murdoch's NY Post attacks poor people for suffering in NYC shelters because they must be inferior to rich people.

The Wall Street Journal is against clean air.

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) will probably run for President in 2016 joining Ted Nugent in bringing us all their crazy.

Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) didn't love Ted Cruz's plan to kill Obamacare enough so Tea Party nut job Rep. Steve Stockman (R-TX) will challenge him in a primary. This race will bring the cray cray and bring it hard.

Watch Rep. John Shimkus (R-IL) yell at Kathleen Sebelius like some wife-beating Mel Gibson impersonator. He even tried to compare her to North Korea but failed.

Fox News writer tells Fox News host to quit, get married and make babies. What I don't understand is why she doesn't take her own advice.

Sarah Palin: Atheists want to abort Christ from Christmas.

Some braincramp decided Sarah Palin needed another TV show. Wasn't the last one insane enough?

Newt Gingrich: Mandela's death an excuse to smear Reagan. And he's mad at MSNBC.

The Ted Cruz coloring book is both scary and crazy.
