  1. America has always been populated with ignorant, malicious, sociopathic people such as these- the only difference is that they have now put themselves into leadership positions.

  2. A shame that on harpers website they don't link to the proof. Not that I don't believe it, lord knows your politicians are wacko, but nice to link to the evidence.

  3. With respect, don't you suppose that the opponents of ANY group could easily come up with plenty of similar dirt on their opponents? Think what would happen if a "white" magazine wanted to smear blacks who were elected to Congress, or vice versa. Or consider how a misogynistic magazine might present women elected to Congress.

    Now, if we had ALL the smears from all sides, we could then compare them and perhaps come up with just which group is the most foolish, dangerous, crazy, etc. But when only one side of the matter is published, it tends to make one side look like the devil...and the other side as pure as the driven snow. But that's just NEVER the case.

    1. I agree that it's hard to gauge the relative insanity of the world by looking at one arbitrary group and judging them by their most extreme elements. But can we please agree that, ignoring the "republican" angle, these behaviors and beliefs in our elected officials are extremely troubling?
