Back to the "just crazy" series!

I know, totally random stuff, but this illustrates perfectly how nuts the Republican Party has gotten and how totally batshit insane common members of the national party think they can get without being called on it.

This involves the statements made by Pat Rogers, a member of the RNC's Executive Committee regarding the Governor of New Mexico's attendance at an annual state-tribal leaders summit (which attendance is required by law):
“The state is going to hell,” Rogers, who is a member of the GOP executive committee and is currently in Tampa for the RNC convention, wrote in a June 8 email released by Progress Now New Mexico. Former Republican gubernatorial candidate Col. Allen Weh “would not have dishonored Col Custer in this manner,” he wrote.
First of all, I thought Custer's highest attained rank was General, but what the heck, this guy is going to reach back to the Indian Wars to support his side and try to put down his Party's opponents?

What ever happened to current events and issues?

When we say these wingnuts are living on a planet called Wingnutia, we aren't kidding.  Nobody on Earth gives a damn about insulting people that way, and in fact see it as an extreme form of racism.

Do we really want people who think like this in charge of our government?  At any level?

You can't dishonor General Custer more than he did himself.
