Who's the Craziest Candidate?

Oh, so many to choose from. Let's go with the craziest who's likely to win. That could be Florida Congressional Candidate Allen West, endorsed by Palin and the Tea Party, who's ahead in the polls despite his (1) being forced out of the Army for using abusive interrogation techniques; (2) association with a violent biker gang suspected in cases of arson, drug running, and murder; (3) self-reference as an "intellectual warrior"; (4) suggestion that the Tea Party fight liberals the way the Untouchables did ("they send one of yours to the hospital; you send one of theirs to the morgue"); (5) physical intimidation of Democratic staffers who attempted to attend his speeches and rallies; etc., etc., etc. But he got $11K from Bank of America! and $10K from John Boehner's Freedom Project!

I can't read the papers any more, much less watch TV news. Even Jon Stewart doesn't make me laugh. My sense of irony has been so eroded by impossible-to-believe reality that I just want to scream.
