Patriotism is more important than Partisanship

As the Republican Party spirals down from a national party to a regional rural party the crazy just gets more stark. Here's a poll from Harris which found that fully one quarter of those who call themselves Republican believe that our President is the Anti-Christ.

Nearly 60% of Republicans believe that President Obama is a Muslim. (When they aren't convinced that he is under the spell of Evangelical Christian preacher Rev. Wright.)

50% of Republicans don't believe that President Obama was born in the United States and is therefore ineligible to be President. (Maybe they just don't know where Hawaii is located?)

This is what happens when you build a political party around ignorance, fear, and hatred. You turn your back on the Party of Lincoln and become a danger to America. People like Michelle Malkin, Glen Beck, and Rush Limbaugh are getting filthy rich selling this stuff to Republicans. It is like a drug.
