Has the No/Nothing Republican Party become the home of nut cases? Looks like it.

Is the Republican Party the home of many certifiable nuts? Looks like it from the results from two recent polls. Here some of the findings:

67 percent of Republicans believe that Obama is a socialist.

57 percent of Republicans believe that Obama is a Muslim

38 percent of Republicans say that Obama is "doing many of the things that Hitler did"

24 percent of Republicans actually believe that Obama "may be the Antichrist."

And you wonder why Democrats and Republicans can't get along. Look Repubs, get rid of the nutty fringe and maybe we can work together to get something done for the country. Do you really want to be associated with these lunatics?

And, when you even think about voting for a Republican keep in mind the company you will be keeping. Gives you pause to reconsider, doesn't it.
