Right Wing Genocidal Lunatics in Congress
Praktike and Yglesias are afraid. They're right to be. This is frightening:
So to recap: Representative Sam Johnson (R-TX) believes that the United States should launch a nuclear strike against Syria. Anyone out there on the right have any comments? Really. A nuclear war. A member of congress. Kind of a big deal.
I would say so.
I would also add that this kind of enthusiasm for genocide is little different than what you get on a daily basis in the comment sections of [various weblogs] or on such vile but popular right-wing radio shows.... There is definitely a large lunatic fringe out there, and it's got representation.
