This Year In Crazy: A Fond Look Back At An Insane Year In Politics
During his re-election campaign, President Barack Obama repeatedly speculated that the “partisan fever” in Washington, D.C. would break after the 2012 presidential election. One year into the president’s second term, it’s quite possible that his prediction was crazier than anything you’re about to read.
Every week, The National Memo compiles This Week In Crazy, an update on the wildest attacks, conspiracy theories, and other loony behavior from the increasingly unhinged right wing. Throughout the year there were countless individual examples that literally dropped our jaws — Pat Robertson’s special AIDS rings, Gordon Klingenschmitt’s warning that militant gays are going to have sex in your house, or any story containing the words “Steve Stockman” come immediately to mind — but a few especially certifiable characters repeatedly stole the dubious spotlight.
So as you prepare to ring in the new year, we invite you to take one last, head-shaking look at the craziest of the crazy in 2013… here they are, This Week In Crazy‘s most valuable players!
