Who Were The Craziest Conservatives In 2015?

Who Were The Craziest Conservatives In 2015?

Each Friday we round up the looniest examples of right-wing bigotry, idiocy, and bizarre behavior in our “This Week In Crazy” column. Now, as we reach the end of December, it’s time to take stock of the entire year — which gave us more inanity, head-spinning untruth, and backwards thinking than anyone could have expected or should have to endure.

We’ve watched science deniers start snowball fights on the Senate floor to disprove climate change and country clerks who would rather go to jail than let people get married. We’ve seen actual presidential candidates threaten to shut down the Supreme Court because God says so and court the endorsements of hate group leaders straight out of medieval morality plays.

Please add your vote to our year-end round up of 2015’s worst in paranoia, bigotry, and contempt for science, civil rights, and reality in general, for as Stephen Colbert so memorably put it: “Reality has a well-known liberal bias.”

Next week, we will assemble the top 5 for “This Year In Crazy,” based upon your votes.

If you need a reminder who any of these folks are, please visit the “This Week In Crazy” archives. And as always, thanks for reading.

Voting is now closed.
