There is no equivalence between the Republican crazies and anything on the Dems' side.


Agreed. I am always amazed when people posit equivalence of right-wing political nutcases and left-wing political nutcases. I do not see any Democratic politicians who are even very far from the center, let alone nutcases. (Doesn't mean there might not be a few, but I don't know about them.)

The closest I can think of is Dennis Kucinich, who is no longer in Congress. Although he was far left of center, he was not nuts and quite often right on the issues, but taking impractical positions given political realities.

We do need a few outliers from both sides to make us examine our beliefs, but we do not need nutcases.
