Comically insane

To the Editor:

Now who ever “woulda thunk” that yet another conservative comedic hero and “patriot” such as Cliven Bundy – a heavily armed scofflaw that doesn’t recognize the U.S. government and openly threatens violence against the “tyranny” of having to pay his bills – would turn out to be another ignorant, rabid racist, longing for the “good old days” of slavery?

Go figure. (Ted Nugent, another absurd conservative hero and “patriot” looks warm and fuzzy next to Clive.)

All this would be merely laughable except the GOP law-and-order crowd and the right wing-media-outrage machine shockingly courted, stoked and hoped for armed violence just to further their twisted anti-government agenda.

These reckless Bundy supporters now bolt from him en masse, but only when his slavery rant made him politically toxic, not when he was merely a violent, treasonous, anti-American, ignorant scofflaw. That was all fine.

How comically insane does the tea party-poisoned GOP have to become before rational conservatives (are there any left?) take back their party?
