News Headline: “300 more U.S. troops headed to Iraq.”
Which will bring our new troop level there to about the same level as our Vietnam troop level in 1960.
But a word of reassurance for those too young to remember:
We weren’t about to let it get out of hand.
News Item: “Georgia residents can now carry guns into bars, nightclubs, school classrooms, and certain government buildings that lack security personnel or devices. . . .”
An update for tourists wondering which states these days are places it is not necessarily a good idea to set foot in.
News Headline: “El Paso GOP candidate Klingenschmitt compares Obama to demon.”
So to review:
Tea Party Republicans so far this year have given us:
+ A candidate who says the Second Amendment guarantees the right to own nuclear weapons.
+ A candidate who accuses his opponent of being a robot body-double for a man secretly executed by a world court in Ukraine.
+ A candidate arrested repeatedly for masturbating in other people’s cars.
+ A candidate who warns that demons are among us, lurking at the White House and the Federal Communications Commission, to name two.
News Headline: “Arizona man arrested after mistaking car for alien spaceship.”
He isn’t a Tea Party candidate.
Sometimes these are hard to sort out.
