"We are learning more about Christine O'Donnell... than anybody even bothered to ask about Barack Hussein Obama."
-- Sarah Palin, last night on Fox News (of course)
There's really no reason to bother getting angry about something like this, since anyone with a brain -- a distinction which obviously excludes Palin herself -- has come to expect a relentless avalanche of inflammatory horseshit to come from the insurrectionist right by now. The noteworthy thing about this, though -- even more noteworthy than Palin going, as Cesca put it, "full birther" -- is that later today the increasingly obsolete Grand Old arm of the Grand Old Party will wheelchair out its "Pledge to America," which will largely embrace the ethics that have been forced on it by the tea baggers.
And thus the circle of hell will be complete and the far-right fringe of the Republican party will essentially be indistinguishable from the supposedly sane majority within the party. The inmates will have officially taken over the asylum of GOP politics.
In other words, Sarah Palin -- this blithering idiot; this narcissistic, conspiracy-theory-spouting Reality TV star -- will basically now speak for all Republicans.
