United States of Crazy

Daily Kos commissioned a poll designed to let Republicans make themselves look stupid.  It worked.  (By all appearances, the poll was conducted according to common standards, the craziness comes from the random sample of Republicans).  I was going to summarize it, but fortunately Bruce Bartlett has already made a handy chart.  Gotta love his "why I am not a Republican" title, too:

Literally astounding.  And disturbing.  I'm sure you could come up with a poll that a fair portion of Democrats look pretty crazy, but I honestly doubt it would be half this bad.  Almost a quarter wants to secede?  Nearly a 1/3 think Barack Obama, who was raised by white people, is a racist who hates white people.  Clearly, the Glenn Beck-ization of the contemporary Republican party.
