In past decades it was easy to tell who was crazy. The mentally challenged people in the past wandered the nation's wastelands like outcasts in the 19th and 20th century.
Those unfortunates were easy to spot on the streets because they were doing crazy things like walking around naked and talking to themselves out loud.
But since we've entered the 21st century where crazy people have mainstreamed into politics, the media, and all aspect of our lives, it becomes a challenge to tell who is bat-shit crazy or walking the line of sanity and ideology.
I'll be blunt here. The Republican party looks like a 19th and 20th century insane asylum where the inmates have taken over.
Right-wing lunatics have infiltrated state and federal governments.
Their biggest achievement was getting a full-blown narcissistic sociopath elected for president.
One of many crazy media luminaries, Mike Lindell, capsulates the true meaning of insanity. I'm not exaggerating.
Last week he announced that he was going to drive a truck full of 10,000 pillows for the right-wing activists squatting in Ontario, Canada.
The truck, and Mr. Pillow Guy, weren't allowed to enter Canada. Authorities turned his crazy ass around and said go back to where you came from.
A Trump devotee, Mike didn't let that bother him, however. Reality seldom does. So, the next thing he announces he's going to parachute pillows (!) into the protestor's encampments.
As of this writing no pillows have fallen out of the Canadian skies like a twisted Berlin airlift for the protestors comfort.
I'm going to go as far to say that if he flies an unauthorized plane into Canadian airspace he won't be warmly greeted.
But no worry of that happening. Like his election lies, everything Mike's spewed has been discredited and laughed at. By sane people.
Republican lawmakers and activists like to prop him up because he creates chaos and is a great messenger for their apocalyptic agenda.
As we witness Republican lawmakers debasing themselves and their offices, it's important to realize how being crazy has cemented their base.
With people like Marjorie Taylor Greene, Lauren Boebert, Gym Jordan, Paul Gosar, Josh Hawley, and Ron Johnson as standard-bearers the party of Trump has raised the bar on being crazy by ignoring reality and truth-telling.
Where crazy people once wandered the streets practically unnoticed, they now march down streets proudly pushing lies for a twice-impeached president.
