So This Is How It’s Going To Be…

In my post about the six crazies to watch in the 2014 Senate races, I gave a shout out to Congressman Paul “Pit of Hell” Broun (R-GA), who is running for Saxby Chambliss’ seat.

In a fundraising letter, Broun takes great pride in the fact that “I was the first Member of Congress to call him [Obama] a socialist who embraces Marxist-Leninist policies…”

So now being delusional is a qualification for the Senate.  It’s depressing enough to have someone like this as one of 435, but it’s sickening to think of him as one of 100.

Six Crazies to Watch

Aaron Blake at WaPo* lists six crazy, fringe Senate candidates who keep Karl Rove up at night and make our Founding Fathers roll in their graves:

Iowa Congressman Steve King (another pea in the Todd Akin pod)

Georgia Congressman Paul Broun (says Obama is a socialist and evolution, embryology, and the Big Bang are lies from the pit of hell)

Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (her presidential campaign was an endless stream of crazy, such as that the HPV vaccine causes mental retardation)

Former GOP Alaska Senate nominee Joe Miller (currently pushing the John-Brennan-is-a-Muslim meme, strong ties to Alaska militia movement, as dumb and paranoid as they come, makes Sarah Palin look smart)

Montana state Representative Champ Edmunds

Former Louisiana Congressman Jeff Landry (said Obama gave special waivers to Muslims for TSA screenings)
