This Week In Crazy: Allen West Reveals The Horrible Truth About Obamacare, And The Rest Of The Worst Of The Right

Welcome to “This Week In Crazy,” The National Memo’s weekly update on the wildest attacks, conspiracy theories, and other loony behavior from the increasingly unhinged right wing. Starting with number five:

5. Bryan Fischer

Bryan Fischer makes his customary appearance on the list at number five this week, for his unique take on the Cheney family feud.

For those who missed it, Wyoming U.S. Senate candidate Liz Cheney angered her sister Mary this week, by reaffirming her opposition to marriage equality. Mary Cheney and her wife, Heather Poe, have been married since 2012.

According to Fischer, however, Liz Cheney did nothing wrong — but Mary Cheney is at fault, for refusing to allow her sister to discriminate against her family. That makes her, as Fischer so eloquently put it, an “intolerant lesbian bigot.”

If only every victim of the Cheney family could take a lesson from Harry Wittington, and apologize for getting in their way.
