One Ran Over the Cuckoo’s Nest

Every presidential primary needs its Ross Perot, a crazy windbag with more sound bites than common sense. In the past we’ve had Ralph Nader or Pat Buchanan take their turns filling the lunatic fringe role.

Who knew that this year’s wild-eyed crazy would be Barack Obama?

What other candidate has the audacity to declare that he wants to stop carpet-bombing Afghan villages so he can invade Pakistan jointly with his good friends Iran and Cuba? Is this guy for real? It’s a hoax, right?

Ron Paul probably thought being a wild-eyed defeatist Republican spammer would cinch the title of “Craziest Candidate 2008”, but it turns out he needs to reach deep into the insanity well if he wants to topple Barack “Pandering Barbarian” Obama for the prize.
