    I defy you to find a teabagger more bat-shit crazy than Cruz the Elder.  Not only is he

    a god-fearing christian, and white [enough]*, and conservative, and nutty as a fruitcake.
    Papa Rafael actually believes (as I heard him say in a TV sermon) that his son is "anointed by God" to be the POTUS. Then he really veered off the into deep end. I was raised by a Dominionist and, believe me, I know from crazy religionists. Papa Cruz makes the craziest of them sound profound.

      air of being absolutely sure of everything that comes from religious fanaticism.

      This issue deserves more discussion and visibility.

      dammit, you scared me!!  And I'm only partly kidding.

      Just what this poor country needs....another fundy nutjob, who thinks he's "annointed" to the job....the very job he is (pardon the pun) constitutionally ill-equipped to perform.

      It just never freakin' ends with these people!

      We cannot call ourselves a civilised society if we refuse to protect the weakest among us.

        most sane people have no idea the leaps in "logic" they can make. That wouldn't be too bad, except that they are heavily armed.

      Politics is like driving. To go backward put it in R. To go forward put it in D.

        When you start out with no internal logic, it is possible to convince yourself of anything. Remember the last presidential election? Every week there was a new nutjob leader of the pack -- Bachmann, Perry, even Herman Cain. They derided Romney as not a "real" conservative for 10 months (it only seemed like a century). Then the GOP powers that be selected Mittens again, and suddenly he was the great white hope.

        Even though Mormons are called a cult of the devil in most fundy churches, they held up Mittens as the consummate "family values" candidate who would save us all from the evils of teh gay and ensure an unlimited supply of guns and ammo.

        If you had been raised in that environment (as I was), you wouldn't be at all surprised that the birthers not only overlook the Cruzer being born in Canada, they can even forget that his daddy is MESSICAN. Their rationalizations defy logic, but true believers aren't bothered by such small things.
