It's So Much Fun To Pick On Wacko Politicians, But......

It's so easy and so much fun to pick on politicians who display their breathtaking ignorance for all the public to see.
Mary Helen Sears: Gays and Communist
and Satan, oh my!!  n

Today, let's meet Mary Helen Sears, a candidate for the Michigan seat on the National Republican Committee.

One of her greatest writings is something she came up with last March, called "End of the GOP?" which, among other things, says all the universities are taught by Communist professors and Satan is spreading homosexuality around and the Republican party must purge those awful perverts.

She has all the answers, and all the diagnoses you need to see what's wrong with America today.

Darwin and evolution "which is being taught to our gullible children," gave "rise to Hitler's Third Reich, Mussolini's Italy and Stalin's Russia."

She doesn't explain exactly how Darwin's evolution theory gave rise to these monsters, but if Sears says it, it must be true, right?

Also in Michigan is a nutcase equal to Sears named Dave Agema.

Among Agema's gems: "Have you ever seen a Muslim do anything that contributes positively to the American way of life?

He also seems to think the Russian way of dealing with gay people -- make them shut up and go away, and maybe get beaten up, though that's not officially sanctioned-- is A-OK.

According to Politico:

"Agema suggested in December that gays manipulate the health care system to get free medical care and said a controversial anti-gay law in Russia seems like "common sense" to him."

National conservative leaders like Republican National Commitee Chairman Reince Priebus don't want the likes of Agema and Sears in any party leadership positions.

But as much as I like to laugh at bozos like Agema and Sears, here's the scary part: There are enough super ignorant, rank and file Americans, certainly not a majority, but enough to make a difference, to put the wackos in leadership positions, ones that could have real impacts on our lives.

Someday, I would like to see politics get out of bizarre fantasy land, just for kicks and giggles.
