Okay, so maybe I’m the last one to hear about this (and it wouldn’t be the first time), but I caught some of Rachel Maddow’s show last night and found myself terrified by a video of a “birther” hijacking a GOP town hall meeting. (Not the same video, ’cause I’m lazy, but here’s an earlier story by Maddow on the same topic.)
These people scare me in the way a single rat scares me – there’s always more than one. And aren’t these the same wingnuts who thought they saw black helicopters over America c. 1994?
Seriously … what in particular creates the kind of low-grade schizophrenia that seems to afflict so many on the right?
