RINO hunt  
Driving the sane people out of the Republican Party. I have predicted it before: Eventually, the ones who think Obama is a Muslim from Kenya will be purged by the ones who think he is a reptile from space.

Possibly the weirdest part of that article, for me, was at the end when he's making a plea for local governance so that there can be multiculturalism...just on a states' rights basis. Can they actually hear themselves when they talk, or are they deafened by their own dogwhistles?

You don't need to listen to yourself talk when you don't have a coherent ideology. At his stage, he doesn't really talk, he just strings together his soundbites.

The big question for a fellow like him is, is he an ubergrifter, or a true believer?

The grifters are nasty and dangerous and harmful *but* they know they're inveterate bullshitters and can step back from the brink when they see it.

The true believers are far more dangerous to the nation because they would cheerfully pitch us over the brink, find themselves dragged along and at the very end whoop "we're finally going in the right direction, and look how FAST!"

So what's wrong with reptiles from space? I have a pretty good Imagination (after reading science-fiction since c. 1940) and can't imagine any space-reptiles worse than some of the widely-accepted current home-born human candidates for the Presidential Primaries.
