Weirder and Weirder

You can read the news as well as I but doesn't it just seem to be getting weirder and weirder. A non issue on whether a Islamic community center can be built in Manhattan in a vacant Burlington Coat Factory is now a national issue with idiots like Newt declaring it is same as Nazis building next to the Holocaust Museum. When did 'Nazi' become a religion?
It wasn't that long ago that the President was quizzing his generals about whether they could reduce our force in Afghanistan within 18 months and they assured him that it was doable. Now they are campaigning to stay forever. Obama needs to remind them who the boss is.
The GOP is going over the edge even further but it doesn't appear to be hurting them in the generic ballot. It is looking more and more like the Dems will lose seats in Congress in the fall. The American political memory is basically now non existent.
Everywhere I turn I  see advanced insanity running rampant. It is enough to make you just quit looking.
I'm going out to dig in the dirt for a while.
Oh! and go read Joe Bageant.
