The Tea Party = The American Taliban

Try as I do not to go political (other than as related to health and health policy) here on my health blog, sometimes I just can't help myself.

Each election cycle the Republicans are offering up more and more frightening candidates, many of whom are winning elections at the local, state, and national levels. People such as the current Missouri Representative Todd Aiken, also the Republican nominee for Senate, who recently expressed his warped views on rape and complete and mind-boggling ignorance of female physiology. His views are shared by a least 40 other members currently serving in Congress.

The GOP presidential ticket of Romney/Ryan is scary. Both have demonstrated a willingness to pander and blatantly lie, while concealing their real agenda and deflecting questions of substance. They are, in no uncertain terms, dangerous.

This video clip from the TV series The Newsroom says it best. Take heed. Make it go viral.
