The state of the nation should be funny, but as Molly usually said " 'Tain't funny, McGee." The Teabaggers are beyond ridiculous and they make the Taliban look sensible.They deny everything: reality, history, science, compassion, and whatever else is good in the human spirit.When the government shutdown occurs, the loons will have done to this country what the Somali terrorists wreaked upon Kenya. If this is a (fair & balanced) rejection of yahooism, so be it.
