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:

Dr. Keith Ablow — a Fox News contributor who is best known for remotely diagnosing Vice President Joe Biden with dementia and suggesting that Newt Gingrich’s three marriages proved that he’d be as irresistible to voters as he was to his mistresses — cited an unconventional source in his latest column: the Unabomber.
Ablow cited infamous terrorist Ted Kaczynski as part of his case that the “political ‘left'” is “psychologically disordered — seeking to compensate for deep feelings of personal disempowerment by banding together and seeking extraordinary means of control in society.”
“Well, Kaczynski, while reprehensible for murdering and maiming people, was precisely correct in many of his ideas,” Ablow continues.
“I would rather be correct than politically correct,” the not-so-good doctor concludes. “And it is time for people to read Industrial Society and Its Future, by convicted serial killer Ted Kaczynski.”
Of course, this type of advice shouldn’t really be surprising coming from Ablow. He did, after all, co-author a book with Glenn Beck.
