Feathered Bastard

Birthers, Birchers, and Assorted Republinuts Let Their Freak Flags Fly, While Dems Become the Party of Pot

I have a terrible confession: I heart Sand Land Republicans.

For a sheer boredom-killer, there's nothing like a congregation of them, such as at the Arizona GOP's mandatory January meeting, where I'm always entertained.

Where else can you watch a pretty conservative five-term U.S. senator be censured by his own party because he's not wingnutty enough?
