Dispatches from the realm of crazy

I listened to a few minutes of Tammy Bruce's radio program tonight. She was saying that she will not be intimidated by Obama and his "liberal gestapo" and that she believes President Obama is "at war with America."

This sort of rhetoric may work well to motivate the increasingly insular and radical base of the Republican Party, but I can't imagine that this wholesale lunacy coupled with hate and anti-intellectualism is going to be of benefit to the party in the long run.

Although I can imagine how this sort of rhetoric can influence listeners to the edge of violence and beyond.
