With the massive field of candidates struggling for attention and Trump sucking all the oxygen out of the race each candidate is trying to one-up the others with new levels of extreme craziness to attempt to emerge from the pack. It’s appalling what these idiots will do just to make ridiculous statements in order to get at least some of the press. If any of thing could actually do even a fraction of what they claim the U.S. would be destroyed in a week, possibly even the world.
It’s really sad that politics has descended so completely into the theater of the absurd to attempt to catch the ear of the most extreme of the Repug base. Most people, Dems and Repugs, are paying little attention to all this noise, so the candidates have to turn up the volume just to get any attention from the tiny fraction of the Repug wingnuts to get any traction at all.
Come on, Huck – the Iran deal is not leading Israelis to the oven. Come on Israelis and American Jews – denounce this extremism; you know what a real holocaust is and letting an evangelical preacher preempt your real distress over the actual Holocaust is pandering of the worst type. People of faith, christian and jewish, should be called on to denounce these extremists the same way you call on muslims to denounce terrorists. Is attention-grabbing claims the only thing left of our politics!
